Teardrop Fall video

January 20, 2024

Teardrop Fall is the most obviously ‘Pop’ piece on Flowermouth and the most logical continuation of Loveblows & Lovecries to be found on the album. It started out as a straightforward acoustic guitar song of mine. Put through the no-man mangle it was transformed into that sonic contradiction, a melancholy electro stomper. Steven added a bridge after the chorus and the legendary Mel Collins (flute) and Robert Fripp (Soundscapes) stamped their identities on what we’d come up with. Lyrically it depicts a character stuck in a depressive loop of hopelessness / helplessness. Probably me! The sensitive video is by David K Jones, the bass player in Liverpool based Art Pop trio Plenty (my immediate pre-no-man band).”
