about

This 9-track album is the debut solo release from Trevor Bryan Cotton, under the moniker TBC. After playing in many Perth bands for a quarter century he has distilled his journeys through rock, post-punk, Brit-pop and Americana into this collection.

The guests below who appear on these songs formed the band that played live throughout 2015-2016.

credits

released January 22, 2016

TREVOR BRYAN COTTON wrote, played, recorded and mixed most of the album by himself, performing drums, bass, guitars and vocals via a valve console to a 2" Studer tape machine.

ANDY J. BARTLETT played the most amazing keys on each song, whether organic or other-worldly. His occasional backing vocals and additional mixing added an extra touch of class.

SHANE CROSS is an old buddy of Trev's who played bass guitar on "Everyone's Famous In This Town".

GLEN ADAMS is another good friend, playing some electric guitar on "What I Want" and "Famous".

TIM STACEY would have been given a drum track to play if Trevor hadn't got to them first. He plays maracas on the album's title track.

Track Name: Well Within Sight
At the very edge of the desert plain
The well is well within sight

Begging for a drink, words are hard to find
When lips are dry and broken

Horse without a name hauls an empty cart
Your friend is tired and trembling

Saddled hip to hip, steady as she goes
No way of parting ways now

Plowing through the land, drowning in the sand
The mind is cracked and crumbling

Even a mirage holds a sign of hope
No way of turning back now

LET IT LEAD YOU
LET IT DRAW YOU
LET IT MAKE YOU DRINK
IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK AT ALL
Track Name: The Path Of Least Resistance
A mind made up merely
Of an obstinate opinion
Will will it's way out wisely
Through the path of least resistance

I made up my mind to follow the signs
That lead down a road you knew was unkind
Please do forgive me

'Cause when there's a choice to do what you're told
Or warm up your voice before it grows old
You'll heed the call that's most insistent

A song sings its sweetest
Through the path of least resistance

MONEY WILL GO
GOD WILL DIE
Track Name: What I Want
I know what I want
I will not let go
It's all I see
A single dream

I will not go soft
I've waited so long
To realise
What's deep inside

Calling on
It's calling on
Calling on to carry me
Across the sea to destiny

I know what I want
I can't let it go
It's all I see
A single dream

Holding on
I'm holding on
Holding on to what is mine
I've paid the price to keep this alive

Calling on
And on and on
Holding on
I'm holding on
Track Name: Moonshine
A stairway to the moon
Dark side calling up the loons
Truth on this side shines so bright
That cowards hide behind

We've come a long way from what you've made
Come a long way from what you claimed
Run a long way from what you may deny

One or more ways for you to say
Understate the role that you have played
Just the wrong thing to say to us tonight

Walking to the sound of another tune
Paying attention to the clues
Maybe you could join in too
It couldn't come too soon

We've come a long way from what you've made
Come a long way from what you claimed
Run a long way from what you may deny

One or more ways for you to say
Understate the role that you have played
Just the wrong thing to say to us tonight

Don't forget just what it is at stake
More than just a case of make or break
You dare to take us for a walk in the moonlight
Track Name: Electric Spanish
(Instrumental only)
Track Name: Everyone's Famous In This Town
Everyone's famous in this town and
This is our pedigree
No one's complaining 'bout the outcome
Guess we'll just wait and see

Who are the ones to break the mould and
Who will return into the fold?
Let's just keep rolling on

No one seems anxious in this town but
Just between you and me
Something is bubbling underground so
What else could it be?

There are those who disagree and
Then there's others just like you and me
You better watch your act

Everyone's naked in this town, oh
It’s like a high school dream
Turning itself into a nightmare
I get the third degree

How can I show my face around here
Now my clothes have all just disappeared?
Who's gonna watch my back
Track Name: Stars
Stars are reminders of the people I have known
In my life no one else has shown me what it's like to truly feel alone

But I found you
And you found me
And I told you
How astounding we were


You are inside of me everywhere I go
I look up, choose a star and slowly count the days until I get back home


Where I find you
And you find me
Then I'll hold you
We'll be happi-ier

Yeah I found you
And you found me
And I told you
How astounding we were
Track Name: Go Off Like The Sun
In through the ears and out of the mouth
Over the years it seemed the best way out
Taken on board without a fight
Shift it around, make it feel, alright?

Learn to control, feel your way through
Change the details if it all rings true
Undo old ways, learn them again
This time you'll make a sweeter refrain

Now you're on track so switch of the lights
Turn up the sound, feelings burn bright
Light the first fuse to set the rest off
Firecracker chain cannot be stopped

..... and go off like the sun
Track Name: A Picture Of My Life
Time, time has served me well
'Cause I came out of my shell

Memories of better years
Washed away the recent tears
And flood me with insight

I FEEL GOOD - I CAN TELL YA
IT’S SO TRUE - I COULD BET YA
HOLLYWOOD - WOULD MAKE A PICTURE OF MY LIFE

Please, I need your help
You see, I’m full of myself

I get the joke is growing old
Tell me something I don’t know
Help me set things right

I FEEL GOOD - I CAN TELL YA
IT’S SO TRUE - I COULD BET YA
HOLLYWOOD - WOULD MAKE A PICTURE OF MY LIFE

I’M GOING OUT TODAY - TO START A NEW LIFE
THERE’S NO WAY - TO KEEP ME INSIDE
MAIL ORDER FORM - GOT ME A NEW WIFE

Why would anyone wanna be here?
We’re flying, climbing, high into the stratosphere

See the world from a different view
The Earth below can keep its hue
Jump aboard this flight

I FEEL GOOD - I CAN TELL YA
IT’S SO TRUE - I COULD BET YA
HOLLYWOOD - WOULD MAKE A PICTURE OF MY LIFE

I’M GETTING OUT TODAY - TO START A NEW LIFE
THERE’S NO WAY - TO KEEP ME INSIDE
MAIL ORDER FORM - GOT ME A NEW WIFE

Alright !!
