    This "real deal" physical album comes from a lover of art who has decorated the music therein. The art featured in the Brothington Album Booklet is a unique accompaniment to the album and was conceived, designed and created by the musician (Kyle Brothers). The 12 page booklet, clear jewel case, inserts, and semi gloss disc face embody the fruits of a labour of love, in photos, slick digital art and complete lyrics, so you can sing along and ponder the inner workings of this dually, mad artist/musician.

I was playing this in concert soon after writing it and announced that I couldn't decide whether to call it "Black Sheep" or "Folly". Someone yelled out, "Why not both?" so I eventually thought, "What the heck", and so it is. This features Dion's rip roaring guitar skills and a Spanish flavour. Herein lies life's difficulties, pitfalls, hard luck and tragedy.

Translation from Spanish: Here I am in Templemore Studio Time is passing as talent is wasted Chasing money only to exist Hanging on for that next pay cheque Black Sheep You’re missing every bone heep And this little doggy get a long sleep When this is overcome Black Street You’re catching every down beat And this little bogey get a ground sheet And whistle for income (These days are running away So I’ll stay for one more pay) x2 Tight String You can’t get lift on clipped wings And this little fledgling get a back sting And put under the thumb Victim It’s not you’re fault so blame them And this little battler’s got a checked run in And luck is underdone (These days are running away So I’ll stay for one more pay) x2 (I’m feeling over Feeling over Feeling overcome) x2 Translation from Spanish: The folly continues Where does fulfillment begin? (Repeat earlier verse) (I’m feeling over Feeling over Feeling overcome) x2 (It’s over let’s whisk him away Cold shoulder yeah/now he’s had his day) x2 Now he’s had his day x2

Kyle Brothers Bungendore, Australia

I am an musician, artist and a teacher, specialising in teaching children to play guitar. I am based near Canberra, ACT, Australia and this is my debut release. At 17 I learned to play, becoming a songwriter when practice eventually became exploration. My music fits mostly within the Folk genre with many influences. I hope that there will be many more albums to follow as I'm writing all the time. ... more
