This song is the final entry for the Ship's log of Collective Spirit's Maiden Voyage. It documents the boat's trip over the road from Gravesend and her installation into Queens Court in the Central MK shopping centre. It also documents the songwriter's experience in Milton Keynes, confrontations with his own reflection, loneliness of being without the crew in an urban landscape, the warmth of the people visiting the boat and absynthe zombies in caribbean themed restaurants.


from The Ship's Log, track released July 29, 2012
Written, composed, performed and produced by Johny Lamb. (being a 'ghost' in Milton Keynes is borrowed from friend and MK resident, Joel Strickland. Thank you sir).
