    SAD LOVERS AND GIANTS - Cowboys

    Sad Lovers & Giants are a rock band from Watford, England who formed in 1980.[1] Their sound blends post-punk, atmospheric keyboards and psychedelia and the band has been described as a pastoral Pink Floyd.

    The band's members have included Garçe (Simon) Allard (vocals), Tristan Garel-Funk (guitar), Tony McGuinness (now part of the trance trio Above & Beyond) (guitar), Cliff Silver (bass), Ian Gibson (bass), David Wood (keyboards and saxophone), Juliet Sainsbury (keyboards), Nigel Pollard (drums & percussion) and Will Hicks (keyboards).

    The original lineup produced two studio albums, Epic Garden Music (1982) and Feeding the Flame (1983), before splitting in 1983. During this initial period they recorded a John Peel Session for the BBC,[2] and a live concert for the Dutch Radio Hilversum station in 1983, which was subsequently released as the album Total Sound in 1986.[1] Live performances included headline dates at UK colleges and clubs with occasional trips to Europe, although they did support The Sound at a major London venue on the day Epic Garden Music entered the UK independent charts.

    European interest in the band began to grow, and with the release of second album Feeding the Flame, they toured Germany and Holland, gaining a dedicated fanbase. Tensions within the band caused a split, with Garel-Funk and Pollard leaving to form The Snake Corps.

    Not much was heard for a while; their label Midnight Music released a mopping up album, In the Breeze, in 1984, which included one of their previously unreleased signature tunes, Three Lines.

    They returned in 1986 with an updated lineup: Garce Allard (vocals), Nigel Pollard (drums), Tony McGuiness (guitar), Juliet Sainsbury (keyboards) and Ian Gibson (bass), and new album entitled The Mirror Test.[1]

    As interest abroad grew, the band performed extensively in Holland, Spain and France, headlined at the old Marquee club in London's Soho, and with the release of their fourth album, Headland, were a featured band in Melody Maker. By this time prior bassist Cliff Silver had returned, replacing Gibson.

    hate's a word that's spoken softly

    some background / a request:
    this is the 12 version of this release (catalog # DONG 5), which is totally different from the 7 of the same name (catalog # DING 5). the version of the titular track on this 12 also appears on the reissue of the Feeding The Flames LP, which is different from the cut on the original LP.

    I've been unable to track down rips for both the Man Of Straw 7 and the original 1983 version of the Feeding The Flames LP, so if anyone has rips of either or both of those releases, please message me. I'd be incredibly grateful. thanks!

    She traces neat escapes
    In night skylines
    Bowing out with style
    Daylight seeps into her darkness
    She'll watch a new moon smile
    Then crawl away

    On another day
    You would swear my judgement was wrong
    Tracing neat escapes
    Now the soft attraction has gone

    She'll swear some weak excuse
    To gain more time
    Changing sides like friends
    To satisfy her quicksand ego
    When life falls short again
    She'll crawl away

    Inside her father's house
    She's free to stay
    Challenge if you dare
    Her mirror test of self deception
    Replacements crowd the stairs
    Rehearsed in praise

    Sad Lovers & Giants are a rock band from Watford, England who formed in 1981. Their sound blends post-punk, atmospheric keyboards and psychedelia and the band has been described as 'a pastoral Pink Floyd'..

    They're marching down the street
    With heavy boots upon their feet
    I saw you in a doorway
    You turned and walked away from me

    I thought it was surprising
    For friends to say goodbye that way
    You looked at me in silence
    And then you turned and walked away

    And if we meet again someday
    I know that you won't be the same
    When understanding is betrayed
    Just walk away, just walk away

    Goodbye
    Goodbye
    Goodbye

  • Sad Lovers And Giants - The Green Years

    4:24

    The Mirror Test
    Midnight Music, 1987

    I can tell myself I know the answers
    Try to puzzle out the painful things I've yet to learn
    But i don't understand the subtle plan
    And still I wonder
    As the seeds we've sown fall to earth and grow
    In a barren land
    Sheltered in our seasoned hardness
    Shall we shed a stagnant tear to ease our wooden hearts?
    Well that depends
    With our precious hands clutching painted sand
    And our broken wheels in doubt as we turn for home
    Melting in a dream of gardens
    I was walking through the trees when someone called my name
    I long to trespass down that path again
    And though I've no regrets
    I can still recall when the first leaves fall
    How I lost my way

    Parachuting into darkness
    Doesn't every wounded hero live to fight again?
    I'm baling out
    But the profiteers stole my surplus years
    Am I somersaulting headlong into the ground?

  • Sad Lovers & Giants - When I See You

    5:41

    I'm watching the surf fall
    I'm wishing you near me
    There's oceans between us
    I'm packing my lifebelt

    When I see you
    I fall helplessly in love
    When I see you
    I drown slowly under waves of love

    I'm tearing my heart out
    I'll give it to you
    There's mountains between us
    I'm thinking of falling

    When I see you
    I fall helplessly in love
    When I see you
    I drown slowly under waves of love

    I'm climbing a mountain
    I'm swimming an ocean
    I'm dying to see you
    You're killing me slowly

    When I see you
    I fall helplessly in love
    When I see you
    I drown slowly under waves of love

    I'm climbing
    I'm falling
    I'm swimming
    I'm drowning

    You whisper secrets for all to hear
    Confusing open hearts and minds
    With acid rumours printed clear
    For those who listen with their eyes

    Standing beside you i'd see your face
    But every word you say escapes into air

    Proclaiming widely the views you hold
    While others through distance lapse untold
    Your dull reflections printed bright
    Beyond correction you still write

    5:08

    Your feet are firmly on the ground
    You run on rails of steel
    You search for me and I am found
    Tilting at windmills
    The pressure to conform is so intense
    Why must I bow down to common sense



    One man's hell is another man's heaven on earth
    What do you see that makes you feel so free?
    One man's hell is another man's heaven on earth
    I can't believe that this is all my world will ever be



    I'm sand in the machinery
    I'm sugar in the fuel
    But your sublime viscosity
    Is oil for the engine
    I'd like to blow this metal box apart
    But it's been so long I don't know where to start



    One man's hell is another man's heaven on earth
    What do you see that makes you feel so free?
    One man's hell is another man's heaven on earth
    I can't believe that this is all my world will ever be



    And I tell myself
    As the years are rushing past
    This is not my dream
    And the pain won't last
    And I shout my name from the window
    But the world cannot hear

    I must confess to nothing less
    Than feeling rather used
    They say that we're all laughing now
    Living on plastic
    Don't tell me only losers feel the pace
    Everyone gets beaten in this race



    One man's hell is another man's heaven on earth
    What do you see that makes you feel so free?
    One man's hell is another man's heaven on earth
    I can't believe that this is all my world will ever be
