UNIT The 1st Sigil
This is a number previously recorded by The Apostles in 1989 during our final studio session. It was horrible. I totally forgot about the existence of this piece (I tend to try to forget The Apostles in their entirety) but then discovered it again while searching for another number called The Sigil...so since we’ve also recorded that one, this is now called The 1st Sigil because it was written a couple of weeks prior to the other one. The lyric is preposterous – I was reading far too many William Burroughs books at the time. Anyway, this is how it is supposed to sound.
Today I saw your face upon a pentagram of fire.
Although you left no trace, I heard your voice across the wire.
Can you see the force directing me? It’s been here for years.
You are that magic soul I seek.
You talk to me but never speak.
That’s why I’m smiling through the tears.
Another distant room, another faded photograph
both lead me to assume I was guided to this path.
Can you feel a force that’s more than real?
Do you know why we are here?
With no faith there is no fear.

In 2016 we released our 30th album (Fast – Clean – Cheap) and with it an era passed. We realised it is neither necessary nor desirable to continue to issue our work on compact discs. The process is expensive and time consuming (pressing CDs, printing booklets and tray cards, buying jiffy bags, going to the post office – it’s so 1990s) so now Band Camp exists, an avenue is presented by which we can release our work to the public directly. Our projects will be obtainable from this address:
IMPORTANT NOTE: The paypal address for our Band Camp and Lulu sites is now [email protected].
In addition there are currently 12 books available. These are proper books in print, not fake, ersatz ‘books’ you see advertised on the internet these days as ‘e-books’. They can be purchased from lulu.com. Type ‘Andy Martin – Grange Hill’ to locate them.
