'Where James Once Played' was written on the day friend and musician, James Cruickshank passed away. Neil Murray happened to be staying at Matt's studio doing some writing and recording, when the news hit and helped note the flood of thoughts. This song is the result.
Flip it over to find 'I'll Be Gone'. A tip of the hat to Australian musical greats, Spectrum. Their iconic song from '71 is reimagined with original singer / songwriter, Mike Rudd joining the fellas on some harmonica and singing.
Since the release of their second LP 'Trans Atlantic Highway, Lost Ragas have been described as 'Cosmic Country' and it is true, they are quite at home exploring the more psychedelic realms of country music. You will hear songs of murder and alienation. Songs of a love that was never known and other songs of love that was a euphoric nirvana. Songs of friendship and even a song about a stunt motorcycle legend. Songs from a real place that have been fashioned into something poetic and powerful.
'It’s like Sturgill Simpson and Beck jamming with the ghost of Harry Nilsson' – Chris Familton (The Music)
