about

Trademark released their first album as a 3-piece in the summer of 1999. Each copy was hand-burned onto CD by the band and covers printed on a bubble-jet printer! About 25 copies made it out in to the world.

It was our last album to be recorded to analogue multi-track. The backings were recorded in a week and the vocals and mixing done over a couple of days, some weeks later. Compare this to our 2012 recording sessions, where we could easily spend this much time on just one song! The vocals on "Audiologue" were recorded in single takes and many parts were bounced together, meaning we had very little control over the final mix. A world away from today's technology!

With the master tapes long gone, this new release was remastered from the original mix CD. The original photos were also scanned and restored. These were taken by Stu's good friend Stephen Baker on a day out to the Docklands area of London. The front cover was taken at Bank Tube station and was inspired by the song "Minority".

We hope you enjoy listening to this piece of our history.

Track Name: The full story
I'm watching you move

I'm watching your body language

and I don't like what it's saying to me

I don't want to intrude

but behind your back there's a different light to see

Everyone's talking

Everyone's bitching

about all the things you say

and everyone's walking

at a safe distance away

Chorus:

You need my help

but all you want is to make me bitter

It's not a game

You joke but you don't know the full story

I've seen this before

you start off with a multitude

and end up with no one but me

All because you want more

but behind your back there's a different light to see

There's a feeling inside

I cannot explain myself

but you wouldn't listen anyway

When two people collide

Why don't their thoughts coincide

Away

Chorus

Track Name: Mental song
Nothing

No more waiting

The time has arrived for me

to convert myself

into reality

Something

I hoped something would give

Or someone would take me home

But now I don't know

Where I'm supposed to belong

Bridge:

And now I can't go wrong

I sit and count the songs

That you have created through your mind

And I'm supposed to forget

or even be thankful

but it hasn't happened yet

Chorus:

You can waste my time

You can make my rhymes

But you can't change my mind

You can leave, diffuse

Leave my soul confused

But you can't change my mind

When I watch you with care

You cannot see me there

Sometimes

I'm not even close

But I can follow you

Bridge

Chorus

Instrumental Break

Chorus x2

Track Name: Connect
Seeing the truth

Is always tempting complications

Telling the truth

I wish for no hesitations

What do I do

when all I seem to get is negative?

What can you do?

I need someone to show me how it's done

Bridge:

The transition's on

I am not the one

Do you feel something

When they call my name

And can you decide

what you want to hide

Show me how you see

For I want to perceive

Chorus:

I hear your radio

And I want to know

Connect yourself to me

I see your video

But you say no

Connect yourself to me

I plan my life

Ahead of you

I make predictions now

I need to foresee

Ambiguity

She feels it's necessary

Bridge

Chorus

Track Name: Coded light
Watching across the water

The travelator to dry land

Following fluorescent trails

of a kind of motion

silver hands through the coded light

see the light

Continuing

My body is resolving

The dusk is clear to me but

the air must bee dissolving

The integral of what should be

Has just appeared in front of me

Moving through caves of progressive waves

He claims to me that he's the coded light

see the light

I will return

Someday I will return

Translucent memories I can't recall

So I must return

The face, the shape, the scene

Shattered windows of normality

A fading click track of yesterday

Tranquillity

I'm still blinded by the coded light

see the light

the fading light

the dying light

I have returned

My home is here

The distant memories have been restored

I have returned

Track Name: Minority
In a never ending maze

Find the bridge to a different phase

My pulse has doubled and my mind is troubled

But safe in my jacket from the haze

Is this the future we designed for us

Or a tube that we're trapped inside

If we could get out there's hope for us

Because we're cloned so we can't die

My father left a paper scroll to me

Of the world with an outside infinite

Now thermo-controlled glass pudding bowls

With polythene grass and sponsored light

Leaving the shadow of my former self

We meet on the fourteenth floor

And head for the exit that we heard about

Posing as tube inspectors

We're alone

for now

Minority

On the corner

I fell into your gaze

A wondrous story

Of life without space

I once dreamt of what I see at last

An audiologue of all that is past

The white tiled tubes are now fields of green

The glass towers have turned to trees

Cylinders shiny once echoing noise

The only sound you hear is the breeze

We're alone

for now

Minority

Track Name: The story of my life
I am not the one

You think I am afraid

But I am not afraid

For all these things I can live through

How hard you tried

When it was so futile

I know you couldn't reach the top

But it isn't over yet

And although everything

has a bearing on your life

It could all just stop

but would that be enough for you

Chorus:

Tell me if it's too much to ask of you

But I'm changing

We're moving

I've started rearranging

Sometimes it's too hard

To wake up in time

You couldn't see much sense in it

And now you can't forget

She'll be staying in tonight

I could have been the one

But now it's all too late

and she can't ever love for me

Chorus

She can't find the time for me

And her face I'll never see

when our lives are torn apart

I wish I'd known it from the start

Chorus

Track Name: Voice box
I want to talk

I want to be heard

But no one is listening

And no one seems to care

I try to speak

But there's no point in trying

Because no one is listening

There's nothing to compare

But now the conversation's turned

I feel that I can talk

But I've no words to take my share

It seems so unfair

Can I have everyone's attention?

And though it seems unfair right now

I haven't had my share

Track Name: All you want (is)
It's a fact

And we can't turn away

From that

And now

You watch me every day

Chorus:

And there are better ways

To while away your time

I stand and look away

when all you want (is)

Me to say

I think that it's OK

I choose to agree

Though it's all down to fate

And I may regret

The chances I have passed

To say what I

Have left until the last

You make your move

Or leave me in the cold

I can't go first

From what I know of old

Chorus

Track Name: In a space
Taken by surprise

I never knew that

Take my advice

Listen to me

I don't want our lives to waste away

Without you hearing what I've got to say

You are to me

A feint remembrance

But now I want to be

Within your resemblance

I want you to understand my mind

But I wish I'd known what I could find

I want you in a space

Where I can hold you

Look through your face

To what's inside you

I don't want our lives to waste away

Without you hearing what I've got to say

I want you to understand my mind

But I wish I'd known what I could find

© Trademark 1999
Track Name: Burn
You scared me with your words

If only I could hear them now

Unsure of your caress

And now it's turned to nothingness

I sit and stare like you're not there

And when you smile it seems unfair

So you have left your love behind

Why don't you take a walk around my mind

I should have read my stars

But I couldn't see that far ahead

The memories fade and die

I should have asked the question why

I sit and stare like you're not there

And when you smile it seems unfair

So you have left your love behind

Why don't you take a walk around my mind

So you have left your love to burn

I only wish it would return.

Track Name: Need some time
I thought you'd understand

But it didn't go as planned

And now you're standing next to me

I don't know where I'm supposed to be

I need some time

I couldn't make things right

(I never could decide)

And now there is no light

(And nowhere left to hide)

People always let things go

There is so much that you don't know

I need some time

You found you couldn't take enough

So you decide to break enough

To get even with my peer

Are you too blind to question it

Or cannot bear to answer it

Or is it just that you don't care

For now it seems to pass you by

You didn't weep, you didn't cry

Can't you understand this time

I couldn't help but fail again

I turn my back and count to ten

But you just won't leave my mind.

Track Name: I knew it all
I knew it all

I knew where I would go

But it was true

The things you said to me

And now I know

Everything I want

Everything I need

is waiting for me here

Oh can you help me please?

Chorus

Once there was a time

I could have run from here

I had no fear

But it's nice to be back home

Where I can reminisce

What have I missed?

The things I lost

I learned to live without

though everyday

I hadn't thought it out

and now I know

Everything I've loved

was always waiting here

Chorus

And this is the only time

I've felt I belong

I'll never go far away for long

I'll tell no lies

I'll never stay away

Because now I want

To live without regret

Chorus
