Show Notes

Not a drastic departure from previous Bridge appearances, but a few surprises and touches. ‘Last Soldier’ is a new song, penned by Mike, with a somewhat R.E.M.-type sound. The ‘Daughter’ tag is a section from Cat Stevens’ ‘Where Do The Children Play’ (“I know we’ve come a long way; we’re changing day to day; tell me, where do the children play?”). The ‘Better Man’ tag is similar to ‘Save it for Later’ but lyrics more like Ed’s New Zealand shows with Neil Finn earlier this year. Ed says that ‘Drifting’ was written on the way down from Neil’s place and that no one can come out of Neil’s, even an insurance salesman, without becoming a songwriter. It includes the full band, with Stone helping out on vocals. ‘Gimme Some Truth’ is a big standout, with the whole band in good form. Ben Harper helps out with ‘Indifference,’ giving Ed a kiss when he walks out on stage. ‘Last Kiss,’ like ’99, is dedicated to Maricor (a Bridge School student).
