Hideki Kaji - Japanese pop star, joyous person and old friend, invited me to write a song with him not long ago. I wrote lyrics and sang a vocal and Nick Palmer (Directorsound) contributed too. That original version is on Hideki's album Löv Songs.
We recorded this Pastels version too, a confident half-cover, but not before Hideki faxed over the tabs of his beautiful, intricate guitar chords, and we (not me) curled our fingers into them. At the time I was thinking a lot about Ukichiro Nakaya and Andy Goldsworthy and I guess those formed the theme - astonishing snow art in contrasting scales. And scientific science.
Illuminum Song is the b-side to the ‘Check My Heart’ single.
