Paddy McAloon - I Trawl The Megahertz(edit).mp3

I have posted an edit of this track because the full version is about 22 mins long.
Written during a period of blindness due to retinal problems, Paddy McAloon spent hours tuning into late night talk radio, and the stories that he heard/recorded inspired the album, from which this is the title track. It is a deeply moving autobiographical ode to isolation, loss and heartache. From the opening chords it's heartbreaking stuff. Yvonne Conners recites diary-like reminiscences over a lush melancholic orchestral arrangement. This is night music, music that you get the most from when you lock your doors, dim the lights, take the phone off the hook and recline on your favourite sofa, watching the story unfold on the back of your closed eyelids...
