Hi Folks,

Here's an article I wrote about Tim's songwriting for the Louder Than War site, at their request. Thought it might interest:

Excellent write-up plus good choice of songs!  :)

No tweets, but I might try and share it via that evil thing (FB)...  ;)

''Smith has never recorded an album as perfectly coherent as Red Sea.''
Your opinion but not mine.  ;D

Brilliant interview- just watch the you tube clip of "Good Times Are back" says it all about a TV Smith gig

A very interesting read Jamie.

Thank you.

I do agree with DJ's comment abour Red Sea.

The Unwelcome Guest is about trying to escape from our own negative thoughts (self talk / gremlin / inner judge / fasle self).

Interseting interview too. Loved the bit about Carring On.

I also loved about how Jamie approached TV to produce WE WHO WAIT.

I can also really retate to this...
