Album Notes
The Ballad of St Jack is loosely based on a novel by Paul Theroux. It tells the story of a small time loser who gets himself in more trouble than he can handle in 1970s Singapore.

For the record I have never been to Singapore and do not know anyone like the main character. I seem to enjoy writing songs about people I have never met and places I have never been--Cote D'azur, Barcelona, etc. I did once spend a week in New Orleans, back in the 1980s when I was knocking around the US with my then girlfriend Karin. But I never met anyone remotely like the wild and surreal Josephine.

It's all made up, people.
