Places 04:07
Places I keep missing the faces Of the friends I used to know Where did the years all go? Never ending recollections keep creeping in Every corner and boulevard Back in the old schoolyard Life is cruel Wish I was making the rules Wish that I could put those happy times in little cans And keep them near and close at hand All of those moments they shouldn’t go away So, I’d be constantly happy Even the failures could last another day It’s everything that I’m missing Forever I need them to make it better I love them all Whatever I wish they would leave me never Traces of those Saturday kisses Like the sand washes over me Tell me could it really be That places hold inside of them memories Watch them all roll out to sea Only you ever had the key Life is cruel Wish I was making the rules Wish that I could put those happy times in little cans And keep them near and close at hand All of those moments they shouldn’t go away So, I’d be constantly happy Even the failures could last another day It’s everything that I’m missing Forever I need them to make it better I love them all Whatever I wish they would leave me never They’re all a part of me

Killing Time 03:30
Lately there’s a dark cloud hanging In my head and in my heart Just like in a dime store novel We’re getting to the saddest part You’re never satisfied My friends give bad advice It’s keeping me up at night Something just isn’t right Honey we gave it a real good fight I know we were more than willing But we’re both just killing time Over and over round we go Where does it ever stop I never know Blue sky on a purple dawning Didn’t heed the warning signs Like the note left on my pillow On a cold grey morning There’s always somebody left behind I’m never satisfied Your friends give bad advice It’s keeping you up at night Something just isn’t right Honey we gave it a real good fight So now if it’s really over Let’s stop wasting good red wine Just save it for another lover Cause we’re both just killing time

Trash Core 02:24
We got the whole world at our feet We were always meant to be

Picking up on that they sold you down the river Picking up on that they won’t be back again When you go down for the third time When you went down they paid you no mind And then once you close your eyes Everything will be alright Won’t you say goodbye To fairweather friend Picking up on that he’s in it for the money honey Picking up on that you gave him your last dime When you went you down for the last time When you go down they pay you no mind And they always close their eyes Holding out for sunny skies Won’t you say goodbye To fair weather friend Yeah, they always close their eyes Holdin’ out for sunny skies Won’t you say goodbye To fairweather friend

It has been almost a year since an absolutely marvelous collaboration hit the streets. Erin Moran (A GIRL CALLED EDDY) and Mehdi Zannad (FUGU) created “The Last Detail”, a fascinating and seductive album. Harvey Williams (ANOTHER SUNNY DAY, BLUEBOY, THE FIELD MICE, TREMBLING BLUE STARS) himself decided to take the pleasure of starting off the press kit. In that text, he included the line: “And even if it always seems hard to highlight one thing over the rest, in this case I’ll stick with “Places” as something particularly huge. Lyrically, it’s a fond memory of days past, poured into a dazzling and happy melody with countless hooks; you think you’re listening to the chorus, and then the song moves on to the real chorus. And then it plays the same trick again. Magnificent”.

That wonder called “Places”, an authentic paragon of love for Burt Bacharach and THE BEACH BOYS, with that halo of THE CARPENTERS that Moran impresses on (almost) everything she touches in the last few years, is the title track of this four-song Single. The 7” Single, transparent vinyl, in a 300-copy limited edition, includes two previously unreleased tracks. Side A closes with “Killing Time”, proof of the magic that this alliance has made: harmonic and instrumental elegance, classicism in the melodies and arrangements, overflowing with good taste and elegance. There are so many virtues that the references are endless: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND, Françoise Hardy, Lee Hazlewood, Dusty Springfield… Meanwhile, Side B opens with another previously unreleased track, “Trash Core”, an (almost) instrumental song starring a twelve-string guitar, and which includes Moran’s precious choruses and her harmonies, which remind us of THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL and THE KINKS, and have some wonderful indescribable sabadabadas. To close the release, we have taken another song from the album, “Fairweather Friend”, that folk touch that leads us to Carole King and even at times to a colorful Joni Mitchell.

And as a finishing touch to this release, Santi Capuz has made an interesting video for the title track, where a kind of “Clue” game is played in a gathering of old friends. There’s a murder, and a detective tries to figure out who did it. Obviously, we’re not going to give away the ending. Surprise!

THE LAST DETAIL is unique and inimitable. The history of pop will include several pages about it, either in the chapter on classics or the one on cult groups, but there is definitely a space reserved for them.
