Who writes the songs?
09/20/06 at 02:24:00
 
The songs on Justin Curries myspace site. Are these written solely by Justin Currie, or does he collaborate with someone else?
Am I right in thinking Currie and Harvie collaborated on the older & newer (myspace) Del Amitri songs with Harvie coming up with the melody & Currie doing the lyrics?

JC is a schitzophrenic with tourettes - he writes all the songs but in 17 different personalities.

Solo stuff:  all JC
Dels stuff:  mostly JC, but occasional collaborations with IH.  But IH does most of the arranging, i think.

Thanks for the above. Has Currie written anywhere about his songwriting process? I saw an interview with him a few years ago where he talked about writing miserable songs because that was easier. Anything else like that?

Another question:

There is a thread elsewhere about the subject matter in Driving with the brakes on. Is the Abortion/adoption speculation only or is there some fact or knowledge behind this.

Hi MacLean, I m sure she wont mid me saying this as its pretty common knowledge, Hilary on here was the person JC got up the duff, She will tell you herself what the song is really about.

One of the reason she moved to Hull , To punish herself.

It's true, JC did get Hils in the family way.  it's one of the more unpleasant and LESS TALKED about epsiodes in the history of del amitri, so we DON'T TALK ABOUT IT, do we Joe.
