We went South until there was no South left
Beyond the stormclouds, satellites & stars
I tried to memorise you the moment we first met
But you become more lost each day
Another layer in the landscape

We taught each other loneliness
My breath in the back of your throat
Yours in the back of mine
Swarms of flies hum in the canopy of Summer forests
& blood hums in the long silences between heartbeats
Until it's just you, out there with the quiet

We went North until there was no North left
Beyond the last places, the blanks on the map
I wanted to wait for you where it was Summer
But I guess you were always going to go where I could not follow.

-David Colohan

Live recordings form two 'Divil A' Bit' gigs from 16/04/16. One played in the daylight and one when the sun went down.

"Blackberries & Juniper Twigs I" is an excerpt from a 'Divil A' Bit' gig at Little Gem Records, Kildare Street, Dublin (Nighttime)

"Blackberries & Juniper Twigs II" is an excerpt from 'Divil A' Bit' playing at the squat in Grangegorman, Dublin (Afternoon) Featuring the voice of Emer Brady leading a yoga session in the room during the gig.

The cassette covers are sewn from the tule of an old forgotten wedding dress and the book covers are stained with blackberries. Each tape comes with your own personal fern stem.

On this recording 'Divil A' Bit' are Natalia Beylis, David Colohan & William Stewart.
