Gypsy Sue's vocals, and the talent of the whole band is just superb. And I love the latin sound. And they organise the wonderful Foco Nuevo every month. Favorite track: Distancia y Latido.

Track Name: Distant Love (No Telephone)
Guitar with no strings stands in the corner
outside no wind for a kite
Love waits like an unopened letter
and it feels dark as night

Distant love, distant love (no telephone)
Distant love, distant love (no telephone)

No words fill the heart of a poet
seems all his stories are told
Papers lie blank on the table
no balm for wounded souls

Distant love, distant love (no telephone)
Distant love, distant love (no telephone)

Like the sea without salt or waves
Like a bee with no sting
Like an ache but no pain
Like a cloud with no rain

Judge in a courtroom is sleeping
plea from the floor waits unheard
There’s no room for the drifters
no pity, no soothing word

Distant love, distant love (no telephone)
Distant love, distant love (no telephone)
Track Name: Carry Me Away
See the needle on the compass spin
hopelessly swinging round and round
She has no guide to help her through
these troubled times
The maps are torn
and out of date
And she can't see the stars
for the clouds

He's a sailor with a sextant
aimlessly pointing to the sky
But its no use to him,
The ancient course is hard to find
The lights ahead
won't stay in line
and the shoreline is lost
in the haze

Today the sea is blue
Other times its just a steely grey
I want these waves
to wash over me
and carry me, carry me away

The radar beam's gone crazy
blinking madly on the screen
There's nothing now
to take him safely home
Today is lost
adrift at sea
And tomorrow feels trapped
in yesterday

Today the sea is blue
Other times its just a steely grey
I want these waves
to wash over me
and carry me, carry me away
Track Name: Distancia y Latido
Dime amor
me estas llevando a la pared
estoy hablando sola
desde que apareciste
de madrugada creo
que me asalta esa luna
y de repente
flotas en mis sueños
aliviando esa tortura hay veces

Dime amor
si algo puedo hace sin verte
me ampara la ilusion
y ya no aguanto mas
entre tanto he encontrado un modo
un modo de esperar
haces distancia
pongo latido para respirar
haces distancia
pongo latido
Track Name: Omar's Adventure
Omar went one Sunday to a sleepy fishing port
He walked onto the jetty to see what had been caught
What could he see, to make him smile?

Omar felt so restless he couldn’t sleep at night
He really wanted something to change his ordered life
What was his dream, what burns inside?

So one night he slipped away to that sleepy fishing port
and found a boat to take him to the places that he sought
The sparkling sea, the ocean’s swell

So he makes his escape for some lucky break
but what will he leave behind,
Will he ever find what he can imagine
but who could imagine what he’ll find


Omar left a note but then there was no word
No-one knew what happened, no-one ever heard
Where did he go, what did he see?

Back home their life is peaceful, there’s no Penelope
waiting by her window unravelling tapestry...
But sometimes they wonder
Where is he now, why did he leave?

So he makes his escape for some lucky break
but what does he leave behind,
Will he ever find what he can imagine
but who could imagine what he’ll find

Omar went one Sunday to a sleepy fishing port
He walked onto the jetty and found that he'd been caught
