about

Teaser Trailer contains tracks taken from the recording sessions from the debut album that have been unreleased until now.

Many were on provisional track lists for ‘This Is Your Life’ and fit absolutely with that style and sound.

Includes the stunning ‘Asleep at the Wheel’, ‘Rowboat’ and the seminal ‘Witches’ plus alternative versions of some of the debut album ‘This Is Your Life’.

A perfect introduction to Adult Cinema.

JOE CLAY (The Times) – “A winning blend of Meddle-era Pink Floyd, beguiling psych-folk and classic rock riffing. Mike Weston is an accomplished songwriter and musician who deserves a wider audience.“

SIMON MORRISON (The Guardian) – “Adult Cinema manage to negotiate that precarious edge, nodding a head back to the fine music of the past, and yet also making sounds and songs that are vibrant and contemporary. This is an Adult Cinema that hosts modern sonic movies that we all need to hear.“

“The missing link between Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree.”

“That an album of such intricacy and detail can emanate from the hands of one man is hard to fathom.”

“This debut could reinvigorate the whole genre! It’s that good.“

Track Name: Feel Your Eyes
You feel your eyes get intense and then
You know you’re back in this place again
With me
You feel a rush and your body shakes
You never learn, you make the same mistakes
With me
The feeling’s coming
You’ve gone past loving
You’ve opened up the door and now you feel like running away
From me

I said the feeling’s coming
You’ve gone past loving
You’ve opened up the door and now you feel like running away
From me

It was just the other day
You said you’d get away
Only to be
With me
Your friends all say it’s cool
But you’re scrambling like a fool
Only to be
With me
Only to be with me

You feel me brush past your legs and then
You know you’re back in this sea again
With me
You feel the tide coming in around you every side
You feel you’re going to drown
In me

The feeling’s coming
You’ve gone past loving
You’ve opened up the doors and now you feel like running away
From me
I said the feeling’s coming
You’ve gone past loving
You’ve opened up the doors and now you feel like running away
From me

It was just the other day
You said you’d get away
Only to be
With me
Your friends all say it’s cool
But you’re scrambling like a fool
Only to be
With me
Only to be with me

Only to be with me
Only to be with me
Track Name: Flowers (Fallout Version)
I'm packing up my suitcase and I'm heading for the sun and sand.
I'm leaving all my troubles here,and I've been told there's nothing to fear.
but there she lies on the runway,
and for once in my life, I get down and pray.
the pressures on your heart has gone,its beating like a drum.
come on come on.
you close your eyes your life goes by,
you know your time has come,
hold on hold on.

Please buckle up and put away those fears you have of flying today,
its the safest way to travel you know and i stake my life this baby lands
OK,
but just to be sure, look at me please,
your life jackets are under your seats...

were heading for the stars ,
its a mile to far
were heading for the moon ,
but this last goodbye comes to soon.....
Track Name: Asleep At The Wheel
I write this letter to you,
it's something I've just got to do.
A short goodbye from me,
it's the only way I see.
I don't want you to feel,
responsible at all,
I take it all on myself,
see I here the darkness call.
Oh Oh drifting off, I'm drifting off to sleep.

I found the place a peaceful spot,
a place that we forgot,
I picked a flower and I found,
that you can love me not.
And I just can't go on this way,
waiting for the blackened day,
when you come along and write ,
a letter on this page.
Oh Oh drifting off, I'm drifting off to sleep.........
Track Name: Dreamt The Other Night (Prog Version)
Dreamt the other night
Dreamt the other night
You were to be a mother
The thing is
The world was fire and ice
And I know,I know we got a long time
But I
I feel we're rolling the dice

Cause to bring a child to this
Would blow my soul

I saw the other night
We were to be a target
The thing is
We'll never know where or when
And I know
I know we've got to live our lives
But we can never inflict it on them

Cause to bring a child to that
Would blow my soul

And I dream of days so happy
But we all know it's so sad
And I'd live this life a million times
If they never had to feel pain this bad

Cause to go so low when we're low
So low
Would blow my soul.
Track Name: We Sailed Across The Ocean
We sailed across the ocean
We sailed across the ocean
We sailed across the sea
To find ourselves
But what we found was this
Ahhhhh
And now our lives are glistening

We trailed across the mountains
To find ourselves
But what we found was this
And now our lives are glistening
Ahhhh The time has come for love
The time has come for love

Everybody's coming down to taste the fruits that we have found
Everybody's coming down to taste the fruits that we have found
And all the people gather round to sample fruits that we have found
The band they play a healthy beat
We dance a waltz and then we eat
Eat eat eat eat eat…….

We searched our live
And what we found was this
Ahhhh
And now our lives are glistening

We flew across the sky
We danced through the mind
We found ourselves
Wrapped up in the dream
Ahhh
And now the cat has got the cream
Cream
The time has come for love.
Track Name: Got To Prove Myself Today
Got to prove myself today
Got to prove myself today
The final hour
Got to make it pay
Seven years you've waited by
Just to watch me fall and die

So if you guessed it would be so
Then you should have let me know
I could have saved myself the fall
Packed it up and left it all

Watched the minutes ticking by
Can't let the clock run down
Can't say I didn't try
Promised you the world and more
I'm sorry if you had to see
Me tumble down and hit the floor

So if you knew it wouldn't be
You should have stopped my misery
I could have saved myself the fall
Packed it up and left it all

Just wish that I
Could be like you
Walk so tall
Do what you do
Just wish that I
Could avoid the fall
But I'll pack it up
And leave it all
Track Name: My Tangled Mind
I’m living my life in a world alone,
I’m living my life in a world of my own,
I’m picking my way through my tangled thoughts,
I’m picking my way through my tingle tangled thoughts.

I’m tackling things you won’t understand,
I’m tackling things you will never understand,
I’m soldiering on in this head of mine,
I’m soldiering on in this tingle tangled mind.

Oh oh oh I’m alone,
Oh alone,I’m alone.

I’m living my life in a world alone,
I’m living my life in a world of my own,
I’m picking my way through my tangled thoughts,
I’m picking my way through my tingle tangled thoughts.

Oh oh oh I’m alone,
Oh alone,I’m alone.
Oh oh oh I’m alone,
Oh alone,I’m alone.

I’m living my life like a circus clown,
But I’m carrying on when the lights are going down,
Bucket of waters soaking me,
Bucket of waters raining down on me.

I’m living my life in a world alone,
I’m living my life in a world of my own,
I’m picking away through my tangled thoughts,
I’m picking my way through my tingle tangled thoughts.
Track Name: Rowboat (Original Version)
You're in the corridor
What are you running for
What are you running from
You know you're mind's a bomb

Men in white coats
Are flicking through your notes
Assessing you and messing with your darkest secrets
Picking out your faults
Revealing all your thoughts
They're digging deep and they won't stop before your soul
And all you wish for are those summer days again
A ray of sunshine and you are back you are sane
All the colour returns
It is vivid and bright
And you've forgotten again what happened that night
But then...
Track Name: Witches
There’s witches in my garden
Tapping at my door
Shadows through the window
Are dancing on the floor
The pokes are in the curtains
Through the keyhole there’s an eye
There’s terror in my lifetime
Will it haunt me when I die

Oh I’ll be happy
If you give me sanctuary
Oh I’ll be happy
Knocking on your door

You’ve never had a nightmare
Till you’ve been inside my head
If you could see what I see
You’d never go to bed

I’m running through the cold fields
The crows are in the mist
I’m trying to reach my safehouse
But my heavy legs resist
The freaks are all behind me
But my body feels like lead
There’s terror in my lifetime
Will it haunt me when I’m dead

Oh I’ll be happy
If you give me sanctuary
Oh I’ll be happy
Knocking on your door

You’ve never had a nightmare
Till you’ve been inside my head
If you could see what I see
You’d never go to bed
Yeah

Oh I’ll be happy
If you give me sanctuary
Oh I’ll be happy
Knocking on your door

You’ve never had a nightmare
Till you’ve been inside my head
If you could see what I see
You’d never go to bed
There’s witches in my garden
Breaking down my door
So you’d better give me sanctuary
Cos I can’t take no more
Yeah
Track Name: Rowboat (Southend Version)
You're in the corridor
What are you running for
What are you running from
You know you're mind's a bomb

Men in white coats
Are flicking through your notes
Assessing you and messing with your darkest secrets
Picking out your faults
Revealing all your thoughts
They're digging deep and they won't stop before your soul
And all you wish for are those summer days again
A ray of sunshine and you are back you are sane
All the colour returns
It is vivid and bright
And you've forgotten again what happened that night
But then...
