10 previously unreleased vocal tracks recorded in the years between Richard's successful new wave career in the early 1980's on Survival Records UK and the advent of his ambient electronica work in 1998. His songcraft, melodies & production are all in top form on Songs From The Analog Attic. His lyrics, which many considered one of the best qualities of those
early years, are surreal and filled with imagery. From the wish
fulfillment of A Swan, Therefore, A Swan "Outside your window the cover girl posies weep like willow" to the nostalgia of Calypso "Fascinated by the Rock of Gibraltar, Emancipated by the Blarney Stone, All the children of the great revolution were swaying to Moroccan Roll" each song is a story that now can be told.
