Starshine

A creepy reggae-esque track with some (more) great stoned vocals from Damon, whose voice sounds like it's going crack. Damon also indulges his love of the melodica. The sole song on the debut album lacking a production credit by Dan the Automator, it could be that Damon let his two right hand men Tom Girling and Jason Cox have the full producers credit on one song as a a 'thank you' (as they had done the majority of the work production-wise, on the album).

Live

Starshine was played live on all the dates of the Phase One. The live visuals included small squares of light travelling around the screen. For the melodica solo, Damon would stand in the middle of the stage and a spotlight would be projected on his, with yellow and red lines moving out from all directions surrounding the central sphere. He would often wave and flourish his melodica to the cheers of the crowd.



Lyrics:

Starshine never gonna find me
Starshine, they ain't gonna find me
Starshine never gonna find me
Starshine, never gonna find me

Stand easy with myself, on myself
Jumping up, I'm low, low, low, low
Show me down

Starshine, never gonna find me (For the last time)
Starshine, they ain't gonna find me
Starshine, never gonna find me
Starshine, never gonna find me

Starshine never gonna find me
Starshine, they ain't gonna find me
Starshine never gonna find me
Starshine, never gonna find me
