Phosphorus - ian james stewart

Just one of a million stars spinning, in an endless slow dance
Burned out behind the sun fading, they come home, they come home…
Phosphorus words ignite hatred, and no rain falls on these stones…

Are you safe behind the cornerstone, did you lay the ground you're walkin' on
Are you strong enough to make it on your own…
If you find the light behind the sun, just raise the flag and let it burn
From phosphorus to the H Bomb… We'll come home…

Blue days and endless nights waiting… are we strong enough, are we strong enough…

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.
