Christmas in a Catholic School circa 1983. Taken from 'Ghost Stories I Remember' which you can grab here....
A new song I wrote and recorded in collaboration with Mats Davidsen aka Painted Romans is out today. Mats and I have previously collaborated on the songs 'Power Ballad' (from my album ICU on Telephono 1986), 'Drives Me On' (from the Painted Romans album 'Heart') and the Davidsen and Wray 'My Big Idea EP'. I also covered his song 'Gin and Tonic Tonight' on the album 'ICU on Telephono 1986)
Mats brought the song to life using a very rough demo of the song which I recorded on a nineties Yamaha keyboard. I may upload the demo somewhere at some point so people can hear just how rough it is.
The song is about some of my early memories of when the Yorkshire Ripper was finally caught and the atmosphere of fear that pervaded at the time.
You can listen to the song on bandcamp at....https://patrickwray.bandcamp.com/track/dark-times-in-a-yorkshire-landscape
It's also available on all streaming platforms.
