No Water - ian james stewart

Close enough to hear it wailing, rivers dry and know one's sailing
It's no lie the world's on fire, written large across the sky
Somewhere there's more than this, a soft light an angel's kiss
Hold on it's all just fine, just wars and borderlines
Sayin' you can't go on, come alive and give it some
The sunlight is in your eyes, hidden lies will kill you wise

You can't build where there ain't no water, you can't stand where there ain't no water
You can't fight where there ain't no water, you can't live where there ain't no water
You can't go where there ain't no water, you can't stand where there ain't no water
You can't live where there ain't no water, you can't build where there ain't no water

It's a neo-con ghost dance in the grey, new dawn
Some minds you just can't touch some minds ain't sayin' much
Armoured cars and broken light, cold indifferent lives
Grey eyes are makin' it rough and these times are cold enough
Saying you can't go on, come alive and give it some
Hold on and stand your ground, sing out and make it loud
The call you've waited for, in your mind it's a caring sword
Breaking it in their side, a sharp blade to kill them wise

A word or two on Junk DNA from Robert Wyatt..


I well remember father Brian Eno's warning dictum concerning unhelpfully decorative clutter:

"every object obscures another".

And here's what is so refreshing about what Ian James Stewart does. there's everything you need and nothing you don't.

Ian's music has a hypnotic elegance. A magical touch - almost translucent at times - but with a warm pulse that really drives the music along with an organically focussed momentum.

Rock music for grownups.

Ian was born in a small Scottish farmhouse, to the sound of his father's accordion. Started playing guitar in the mid-sixties, strumming along to his dad's records - Hank Williams and Johnny Cash as well as the popular music of the day.

Ian's sister Linda played piano, brother Billy played violin, and later his younger brother David took up bass guitar.

Ian started playing in their dad's band. A mix of scottish and country music. Next he found himself in a Glasgow band "the James Boys", playing material by such as Steely Dan, the Eagles, and Stevie Wonder.

After six months with them in Spain, Ian returned home to work on his own songs.

He managed to get hold of an old reel-to-reel tape recorder, bouncing ideas back and forth until he felt he'd got enough possibilities down to write and record his own music in own way.

after recording and touring with many of the best, Ian's really earned this.


Ian James Stewart's music has something to say, and does so in a way I find totally authentic.
