You Must Come (MP3) by Man on My Bicycle

This is another Man on my Bicycle track called You Must Come. I think it’s commercial, pretty much a pop song with an unusual mix of a bluesy-pop with some nice occasional reggae-style bits. I love the words to this song, which are just one message repeated throughout as if the more they are said the more chance they’ll have of working.

It’s about a trying to win back the affections of a girl by proclaiming he never really got to be his real self – but if she only could see that true person …

Lyrics: by Michael Briers (my cousin)

I get to be myself, sometimes,
but it’s never for long
you should see me,
honestly, you should see me.

And before the sun goes down tonight,
you will see me in a different light,
come on and see me
come on
come on and see me.

And if the light strikes my face just in the right place,
you will succumb
so I will lean by the window
with myself yes you must come.

Genghis Khan track (MP3) by Man on my Bicycle

This is another Man on my Bicycle track called Genghis Khan as requested by David. There’s a lot of dampened percussive stuff on the bass which I’m not sure comes through properly in the recording. It’s one of the songs I used to struggle to play well as I was slapping away relentlessly. Loved playing this song.

Fat Girl: Man on my Bicycle

This is a song from a live recording session at our practice room some years back. A bit more rocky than earlier Man on my Bicycle. It’s a song of two halves in that it gets surprisingly heavy in the second half after starting off light – Fat Girl.mp3

Man on My Bicycle (Track 1)

This is from an album we recorded a long time ago, which few people have ever heard. We were never signed, never really pursued that. We went into a recording studio and recorded this for ourselves. I think it’s about time someone else heard it. I would love to re-record this entire album with modern equipment.

Here’s track one: Colours.mp3 which was voted best demo of the month when we sent it to a local music magazine and was voted best demo by a panel of judges on a local radio station.
