The Proclaimers Lyrics 1987-2013

Nine Studio Albums – 124 Full Song Lyrics

Paperback : ISBN : 978-0-9931177-0-1Proclaimers Lyrics Book

Craig and Charlie Reid have written consistently wonderful words and music across their career to date. These songs are timeless, the lyrics capturing a gamut of human emotions, written with poignancy, honesty and humour.

Their songs feature at weddings, funerals and everything in-between and there is one song, an early celebration of falling head over heels in love that is known the world over and has become a staggering global anthem. There are many others that have gained great popularity in different parts of the planet and then there is a wide cross section of sublime songs embraced by a multitude that has kept up with The Proclaimers nine studio albums and compilation collections released between 1987 and 2013.

Their words read elegantly as prose and this book presents all the lyrics of the 124 songs recorded in this period with a forward by the esteemed screenwriter Richard Curtis and original introduction sleeve notes from 2 more uber fans on their ‘Best of’ by Matt Lucas and ‘Very Best Of’ by David Tennant.

There is a 10th album due for release in Spring 2015.

Fragments by Carol Sinclair

FRAGMENTS by Carol Sinclair

FRAGMENTS was published on July 30th 2014 and is available now on the Apple App Store.

Sinclair’s work explores the importance of memory and its role in defining who we are. 

Her delicate and fragile compositions use drifting fragments of translucent white porcelain to express the complexity of our personal connections, and seek to balance what is present with the random absences that are created by time.

FRAGMENTS brings together a ceramic artist, a creative director and a digital designer to develop & design this App.

Designed and optimised for iPad.
