Short intro

Fireships is the 19th studio album by English singer and songwriter Peter Hammill. Originally released in 1992, it was the first release on Hammill's own Fie Records label. It was reissued in remastered form in 2006. The sleeve notes label the album Number 1 in the BeCalm series, and its songs are generally at the gentler, more introspective end of Hammill's work. Hammill's next album, the more rocking The Noise 1993, was similarly labelled as Number 1 in the A Loud series. Hammill decided to. Текст песни: Theres a smokescreen on the horizon, Fireships under sail tonight Heres the Armada of Souls, Heres the flotilla from God knows is one of Hammill's most consistently quiet, intimate works a collection of relationship odes similar in mood to 1984's The Love Songs. Hammill, even at his most reflective, is highly poetic and intense. Each of the nine numbers is given ample room to breathe, with most ranging between 5 and 7 minutes.

Fireships is the first album Peter Hammill recorded and published after he founded Fie Records in 1992. For the first time he had the chance to decide totally for himself what he was going to record and publish. Out of this reason Peter, as he explained in an interview, made his mind up to build his albums more around a certain mood, like calm or noisy. Songs in album Peter Hammill - Fireships 1992.
