about

They met at a songwriting retreat in September 2013 at Monnow Valley Studio -wrote a song together - the first song on the album and decided then and there to from a band and created this, their first album. Garry Hughes, of Bombay Dub Orchestra, and lover of all things electronic and synth, Andy Jones, a composer and lover and player of all things of all things acoustic, including uke, tenor guitar, dulcimer, hurdy-gurdy, accordion & Gitika -vocalist, songwriter, acapella and vocal arranger, choral director.
The album is a record of our meeting. It is a spacious , hi-fi ( no drums) melancholic songs. Someone said it was Gabriel meets Enya but that no way describes the unique sort of folktronica-you can't put it in a box style - that is 3 Bucket Jones. We are, at present just putting the finishing touches to their second album. This is where it all started .Well worth many listens.

Track Name: Goodbye to 'Forever'
GOODBYE TO 'FOREVER'
Partington/Hughes/Jones
Steal the frame, feel my pain
Praying on my mind, another place, another time
Freeze the frame, the window pain
Punishing myself I could have seen the tell tale signs
And if heaven freezes over, heavy rain in Arizona…
Then I’ll forgive you

Time could heal, it might reveal
Playing in my mind another song, another rhyme
So freeze the frame, the window pain
Punishing myself, I could have seen the tell tale signs
And if heaven freezes over, heavy rain in Arizona…
Then I’ll forgive you

Breathing out and in
Letting go of ‘together’
Breathing out and in
Saying goodbye to ‘forever’
Track Name: Weather Warning
WEATHER WARNING
Partington/Hughes/Jones

Do you remember the hurricane,
Moaning gales, driving rain
Look in your heart, and we’re ringing the change
Do you remember the raging flood the angry tides,
The changing moods
A look in your soul, and we’re ringing the change

Oo something you played
Oo helped loosen the chains
Ooo something you sung was so fine
Now I’m taking a trip
On the freedom line
And it’s feeling so fine

Do you remember the weather warning
Old Saint Jude he’d come a calling
A look in your eyes
And we’re ringing the change
Do you remember the crashing seas
Heavy storms inside of me
A look in your soul
And we’re ringing the change
Track Name: Another Rainbow Day
ANOTHER RAINBOW DAY
Partington/Hughes/Jones

Stargazing man, scrapes out his billy-can
Sits by his caravan- chan chan chan.
Cloud watching lady picking flowers stripping daisies
Blocking ears when they call her crazy – bam bam bam
The sands of time, slipping through my fingers slipping through my toes
I sit and cry, watching memories fading to sepia, who would know?

Stargazing boy, escapes from Illinois
Night sky his holy joy- chan chan chan
Cloud watching girl - pictures and dreams unfurl
Escapes the crazy world – bam bam bam
The sands of time, slipping through my fingers slipping through my toes
I sit and cry, watching emerges fading to sepia who would know?

And the world says (You can run, you can hide
But this crazy world lives inside. X2) Another Rainbow Day

3. Changeable skies, feeling the lows and highs
No time to apologize - chan chan chan
Say your goodbyes, first your born, then you dies
How much you gonna compromise - bam bam bam
The hands of time, slipping through my fingers slipping through my toes
Again I cry, watching emerges fading to sepia, who would know?
Track Name: Mended
Brave the storm, make and mend
Patched and worn, sew and tend
Old tin roof, can repair
Sand and smooth
Done with care

Oh, why can this not be mended x2

Broken home, patched with wood
Iron and stone, sweat and blood
Old tin roof, fighting rust and rain
Sand and smooth
As the season change
Track Name: She's on Fire
SHE'S ON FIRE
Partington/Hughes/Jones


She's on Fire
She's on fire again
Do you fan her flaming fires
Give her room to ignite?
Let her fly with heavenly choirs
Turn the dark to light
Do you damp her luminous flames
To stop her burning so bright?
To call halt to her dangerous games
To keep her down
Safe and sound
Out of sight
Out of mind
Track Name: Walk Round the Bed
WALK ROUND THE BED
Partington/Hughes/Jones


If I had held the hammer, if you had held the clay
If we had danced all together, but now we pray
If only they’d bought you the black shoes
Only they’d let you dance free
We could have skipped light fantastic
Through the trees

Walk round the bed
Now they walk round the bed
Watch them walk round the bed
If you had cried a river
If you had felt my shame
If we had all stopped comparing
No-one’s blamed

For now we are on the same side
Now we’ll let go the fight
Future and present’s the mirror
Wrong or right
Walk round the bed
Now they walk round the bed
Watch them walk round the bed
Track Name: Take me Down to the River
TAKE ME DOWN TO THE RIVER
Partington/Hughes/Jones

Free my day free my nights, free my wrong and free my rights
Free my love, free my pain, free my pride and free my shame
Free my yes and free my no, free my stop and free my go
Free my leaving free my stay, free me from these boots of clay
Free my girl and free my boy, free my song and free my joy
Free my body, free my soul, free my rock and free my roll
and take me down to the river when I'm done
AND WASH MY PAIN AWAY

Free our peace and free our fight, free our dark and free our light
Free our hearts and free our touch, free too little free too much
Free our knowing free our doubt, free our whisper free our shout
Free our dark clouds free the sun, free our minds when day is done
Free our girl and free our boy, free our song and free our joy
Free our bodies free our soul, free our rock and free our roll
And take me down to the river when I'm done
AND WASH MY PAIN AWAY

Free the tribe and free the land, free the nation, free the clan
Free the spirit, free the faith, free the love and free the hate
Free the rich and free the poor, free the windows, free the doors
Free the wings and free the chains, free the judging free the blame
Free the mother, free the earth, free the death and free the birth
Free the body, free the soul, free the rock and free the roll
And take me down to the river one more time
AND WASH MY PAIN AWAY
Track Name: All at Sea
ALL AT SEA
Partington/Hughes/Jones


Shipwrecked I'm all at sea
No lighthouse guiding me
Oh strange land
Tie these hands
I've never been to sea.........
The wind runs free, oh take me

The moon keeps on yearning
The beacons keep burning
I look in the distance to sea
Boats never seem to sail by, don't know why
I keep calling but you don't hear me

The darkness is wailing
The ships keep on sailing by
Still don't know when you'll return
Deep seas remind me
My lover's not here with me
Ready, my bridges to burn
Track Name: Burned Again
BURNED AGAIN
Partington/Hughes/Jones

My heart is in the fire, the fire, the fire of love
And I’m gonna get burned, get burned again

Feet feeling the water, toes gripping the sand
Arms stretched out the burning sun hand in hand in -
Walking from the humdrum, running from the start
Spin the lover’s spectrum opening -

My heart is in the fire, the fire, the fire of love
And I’m gonna get burned, get burned again

No one ever told me stand behind the line
I don’t run for shelter time after time after
Turning from the hum drum spinning from the start
Run the lover’s spectrum, opening -

My heart is in the fire, the fire, the fire of love
And I’m gonna get burned, get burned again
Track Name: Sing With Me
SING WITH ME
Partington/Hughes/Jones

Key in the lock, turn, turn, turn
Still you burn, nobody home
This has to stop, turn, turn, turn
Still you yearn, all on your own

We won’t let you down x2

Sisters, call your brothers, all believers, call your lovers
Demons, hold your angels
Grave to cradle we sing, we sing with me
And I’ll sing with you
Sing with me, and I’ll sing with you

There was a place all we knew
Was that everything was right
Was that everything was so new
Different space change the view
When my day turned into night
When I just couldn’t pull through
