Featured on the album "When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease", which came out in the UK under the title "HQ". Dave Gilmour tried to do the guitar solo at the end of the song, but failed to get it right. So they called in Chris Spedding, who arrived wearing a white suit, shades and a red carnation in his lapel. His listened to the playback once, told them to roll the tape and nailed the solo in one take. He then packed up his gear and left...

an excerpt from Jack's new interpretation of Roy Harper's classic song, taken from his new 7" single. Jack Ellister was recently voted FdM's favourite solo artist, so it's great to have him back on Fruits de Mer with a newly-recorded single - even more so when you hear that he's chosen to reinterpret two songs that are about as far apart in their style and origins as anything that's appeared on the label in over 10 years. 'Supernaut' first...

A new cover of When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease featuring my good friend Joaquim (aka Shaka) on a beautifully sad harmonica solo standing in for the brass section. I had the idea of inviting Shaka to join me on this one for a live performance, but then came the lockdown and I had to shelve it. Weeks went by and I thought we might as well do a home recording. 48 hours later, here it is. Shaka is a brilliant musician who is able to play...

Lyrics:

When An Old Cricketer Leaves The Crease
When the day is done
And the ball has spun
In the umpire’s pocket away
And all remains in the groundsman’s pains
For the rest of time and a day
There’ll be one mad dog and his master
Pushing for four with the spin
On a dusty pitch with two pounds six
Of willow wood in the sun

When an old cricketer leaves the crease
Well you never know whether he’s gone
If sometimes you’re catching a fleeting glimpse
Of a twelfth man at silly mid-on
And it could be Geoff and it could be John
With a new-ball sting in his tail
And it could be me and it could be thee
And it could be the sting in the ale

When the moment comes
And the gathering stands
And the clock turns back to reflect
On the years of grace
As those footsteps trace
For the last time out of the act
Well this way of life’s recollection
The hallowed strip in the haze
The fabled men and the noonday sun
Are much more than just yarns of their days

When an old cricketer leaves the crease
Well you never know whether he’s gone
If sometimes you’re catching a fleeting glimpse
Of a twelfth man at silly mid on
And it could be Geoff and it could be John
With a new ball stingin’ his tail
And it could be me and it could be thee
And it could be the sting in the ale
The sting in the ale
