According to Tandle Hill is ‘ country park in Royton, Greater Manchester, England. It consists of approximately 110 acres (45 ha), a combination of beech woodland and open grassland. The park contains a countryside centre (opened in 1994), picnic areas, children's play area and numerous trails and paths into the surrounding area. Two countryside rangers are based at the countryside centre. In fine weather conditions, it offers views of Manchester and the Welsh mountains.

When I was a lot younger, there is quite a famous story about me going missing up there one night with a girl which I won’t repeat here, but over 20 years later, I went up there again with three of my friends and brother.

This track is a sound and piano recreation of the walk leading to the top of the hill.

Track 2 - the edit is a little almost radio edit uploaded on soundcloud a few weeks before and reproduced here upon request.

Track 3 - Goodbye Julia is a improvised goodbye to the girl i used to know up here recorded end of november 2014.


released December 6, 2014
