about

Beautiful Pea Green Boat London, UK

Back in the 1980s, Beautiful Pea Green Boat - Ian Williams and Heather Wright - released two albums and several singles on their own Slaughterback label, which became known for their ethereal female vocals and mixture of electro, indie and melodic, neo-classical torch songs. They played a mere half-dozen concerts, but gained quite a reputation in Europe and on the American college radio circuit. ... more

Track Name: Chance
From nowhere your soul smiles
I see sky along the treetops
Beckoning voices pull me along
Yet cries pierce the sun never cries
Temptation seems like a saviour
Enticing away from the waiting

Chance was a ship, a luxury
Swift upon the bluish skies

Clouds come rushing, raining in the heat
The falling rhythm of a single clock
Ecstasy melts my breathing now
Night walks into sadness
After the explosion of paradise ends

Chance was a ship, a luxury
Swift upon the bluish skies

Clouds come rushing, raining in the heat
The falling rhythm of a single clock
Ecstasy melts my breathing now
Night walks into sadness
After the explosion of paradise ends
Something echoes from a long time ago
Something echoes from a long time ago

Chance was a ship, a luxury
Swift upon the bluish skies
Track Name: In Succession
When the smoke clears
You’ll see yellow roses thrown over the dead
And I’ll save one for you

Saviour, oh my saviour
let go of me, let go of me

As your breath in the cold air
As the snow on the rooftops
As the fur on your back

Saviour, oh my saviour
let go of me, let go of me

A nervous smile
As you see the yellow roses
I’ll save one for you

Saviour, oh my saviour
let go of me, let go of me
Track Name: Chance (Demo version)
From nowhere your soul smiles
I see sky along the treetops
Beckoning voices pull me along
Yet cries pierce the sun never cries
Temptation seems like a saviour
Enticing away from the waiting

Chance was a ship, a luxury
Swift upon the bluish skies

Clouds come rushing, raining in the heat
The falling rhythm of a single clock
Ecstasy melts my breathing now
Night walks into sadness
After the explosion of paradise ends

Chance was a ship, a luxury
Swift upon the bluish skies

Clouds come rushing, raining in the heat
The falling rhythm of a single clock
Ecstasy melts my breathing now
Night walks into sadness
After the explosion of paradise ends
Something echoes from a long time ago
Something echoes from a long time ago

Chance was a ship, a luxury
Swift upon the bluish skies
Track Name: Smoke And Yellow Roses (Demo version of In Succession)
When the smoke clears
You’ll see yellow roses thrown over the dead
And I’ll save one for you

Saviour, oh my saviour
let go of me, let go of me

As your breath in the cold air
As the snow on the rooftops
As the fur on your back

Saviour, oh my saviour
let go of me, let go of me

A nervous smile
As you see the yellow roses
I’ll save one for you

Saviour, oh my saviour
let go of me, let go of me
Track Name: The Heartbreak Revolution (Demo)
If the world’s an oyster
It has no pearl
When man has no secret
He feels alone

If the last few minutes were anything to go by
I’ll be happy until the day I die

If the world’s still here
In a million years
When man has no secrets
He’ll break the mirror

If the last few minutes were anything to go by
I’ll be happy until the day I die

Will the world’s last person
Still believe in truth?
He’ll have all the secrets
To share with no-one else

If the last few minutes were anything to go by
I’ll be happy until the day I die
