A Twist Of Time
David Ireland


Stroud - Gloucestershire - UK


Aug. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- The themes running through David Ireland's new album have been variously described as Time, Money, Life, Death and Love. Nothing major then!

One track that stands out is 'Money Matters'. This could well be the song of the small businessman with its incisive lyrics. There is something of the old 10CC in there, a bit of blues and a hint of Formby. It could only have come from England.

The forthcoming video is a crazy animation that will have the world talking and is sure to notch up scores of YouTube hits.


David Ireland began performing in the 60s. During that time he toured constantly throughout Europe, working solo and with his band.

A well-known figure on the Dutch music scene in the 70s and 80s, David worked with artists as diverse as B.B. KIng, Yes, Sparks, Sonja Kristina, Kayak, Leonie Janssen, Frans Ehlhart, Herman Van Veen, Boudewijn de Groot and many others.

David has remained fresh and involved with current music. As he tells us, '...the musicians on the album are amazingly talented. The energy they create and the spontaneity of their musicianship is astounding. I felt truly privileged to share my music with them'.

A Twist Of Time was recorded in the Cotswolds between April and July. The album features fourteen tracks recorded with the cream of local musicians.

The songs were written while the album was taking shape in the studio. There is a spontaneous and almost organic feel to the tracks. Subject matter is as diverse as warfare, 911, global recession and the transience of life. There are also a couple of love songs in there too!

A Twist Of Time is out now, on Double Infinity Records and is available for immediate download at http://timeaftertime.bandcamp.com/

David is a broadcaster, writer and musician. He has a degree in fashion and textiles and is co-owner of a small vintage shop in the Cotswolds called Time After Time.

Money Matters - Words & Music David Ireland

•   eBay, Amazon, wonder where the money’s gone
•   Tax Man, Vat Man, catch the money if you can…
•   Bar code, ala mode, sell your mother down the road

•   I’m not afraid of the dark
•   I like it when the nights close in
•   I’m not afraid of the dark
•   I like it when the mailman doesn’t ring
•   Don’t like Manila
•   Red letters dropping to the floor
•   Every letter is a killer
•   So Mailman, stay away from my door

•   Chorus:
•   Money matters, money talks
•   Money comes and then it walks
•   Money’s cold but money burns
•   Money bleeds the more you earn
•   Money sucks, but gimme bucks
•   Cause there’ nothing you can say that can change the way that money matters…
•   Yeah...
•   I’m not afraid of the light
I like it when the day begins
•   I’m not afraid of the light
•   I like it when the birdies sing
•   I like the sound of coins in the till
•   Notes in my wallet give me a thrill
•   Hey pal, Paypal coming through the door with more…so much more
•   Chorus:
•   Money matters, money talks
•   Money comes and then it walks
•   Money’s cold but money burns
•   Money bleeds the more you earn
•   Money sucks, but gimme bucks
•   Cause there’ nothing you can say that can change the way that money matters…
•   Yeah
•   Money makes you go insane
•   Money crushes you with pain
•   Money never ever plays the game
•   It cheats, it lies…you never get to win the prize…surprise!
•   Chorus:

And there you have it. A protest song of sorts for the 21st Century.
