So to cut a very long and boring story short, click here to get some more details about the project and submission details. The compilation album will be released next year on International Women's Day. We already have 3 artists confirmed on the project including some international talent.
ABOUT WINSTON THE FISH
Another off cut that didn't make it on the last album. It probably needs to be re-worked, I did it years ago. This song is called 'Winston'. I don't tell this story often, but years ago my younger sister Diana, bought me a goldfish for my birthday, called Winston. I had it for over a year and I grew very attached to Winston. I used to talk to it and we formed a relationship, as fish go. As time went by I decided to buy a bigger tank for Winston....we've gotta grow, get bigger, get richer, move faster, up size...I wasn't satisfied with the small bowl I had. I wanted Winston to have more space to play.
Anyway, I settled Winston into his new home and then Stew and I went away for a couple of days and when I came back......Winston was sick. He was struggling to swim. He was suffering from a thing called 'Toxic Shock' which happens to fish when you've transferred them to a new space, but it's too clean, it doesn't have the algae or whatever and they can't handle it. This may all sound very silly , but I cried and cried and cried and I sat by his bowl through the night and sang to him and I wrote this song while he was flailing around in the water.....He eventually passed away and I released him into a waterfall the next morning called 'Mini Ha Ha' in Katoomba. Boohooohooo...I still get emotional when I think about it.
