"Critics are like eunuchs, they can see it, they can hear it, but they can't do it" - John Lennon.

"I saw two magpies
A girl and a boy
One for sorrow
Two for joy
With no salutes
I move away
And long to face, face ,face
Face down fear

I saw two magpies
There was a girl and a boy
One for sorrow
Two for joy
Content to cry
No more to lie
I move away
And lie in truth

Look two magpies
A girl and a boy
One for sorrow
And two for joy
Three for a girl
Four for a boy
I saw two magpies
Two for joy

Content to cry
No more to lie
In truth with you
To face down fear
Content to cry
No more to lie
No more to lie
And face down fear"

TWO MAGPIES is a reference to Miss Mills and her sister Fiona.


"Electric Arguments is an eclectic and varied album consisting of thirteen tracks recorded in thirteen days over the period of nearly a year. Each track was written and recorded in the space of one day. The Fireman went into the studio with no plan or clear direction of how they wanted the album to sound. The project took a life of its own and the results will surprise anyone expecting to hear the previous sound of the band.

The album's opener Nothing Too Much Just Out Of Sight is classic rock and an instant attention grabber. A heavy guitar riff with loud drums and souring vocals, it's like nothing The Fireman have ever done before. The second track, the acoustic driven Two Magpies immediately takes you in a different direction, calming things right down. Then we reach the third song Sing The Changes, a euphoric upbeat song with an instantly memorable melody. Electric Arguments continues in this fashion, keeping the listener intrigued as to where The Fireman will take them next. Each album track has an entirely different personality, yet somehow this collection sits together perfectly. Other standout tracks include 'Light From Your Lighthouse', 'Sun Is Shining' and 'Dance 'Til We're High', all in keeping with the genre-hopping spirit of the first two The Fireman albums. Electric Arguments demonstrates that Paul McCartney is still interested in pure musical possibilities. This is an album set to both surprise and delight the listener. Made with no record company restraints or a set release date to work to, Electric Arguments was made with complete artistic and creative freedom".
