hello friends! i thought it was time to add a new song from my album 'ghost waltz' to the myspace page. ( its called 'books will burn' and it features all the usual paul starling stuff: lots o harmonies, reverb'd guitars, cross stick bass drum patterns, & of course some thick bass lines. anyway if you haven't heard this one then head over and check it out. if you like it mucho then maybe you would like to own it alogn with 14 other songs by buying the album 'ghost waltz' @
take care!
paul & co
p.s. show @ channel islands college this friday night!!
