Notes: this is an EP of what they call protest songs. It's an EP because these five songs talk to and inform each other... they tell a story. It's an old story, but it's modern. It's a familiar tale, but it's strange that it keeps happening. It's a group of songs about class war. From the youngster reading Walter Greenwood's 'Love On The Dole' travelling to work on the bus, to the voices who are "the skin and soul" of "the ghosts you keep", to the hangovers of 'Saturday Morning', the internationalist quoting Thomas Paine and, finally, the human being who dies in the cold having neither work nor home to nourish their soul. Take care of each other.
Alan O'Hare, Liverpool, 2017.

Special thanks to Amanda O'Hare for everything... especially enabling me to keep writing. Personal thanks to Jon Lawton for the music... without you brother, it just wouldn't be as much fun. Or as good.
