Quarterman “(That Old Chinese Takeaway Called) Happiness” – Listen

Quarterman is the name for the solo project of Man The Lifeboats’ lead singer and songwriter Richard James Quarterman.  He’s recorded an album called ‘Carondelet‘ which is out on March 26th.  The album was recorded in the home studio of acclaimed producer Jamie Evans (Wildwood Kin, Lynne Jackaman, Antwerp Gipsy Ska Orkestra, Crawford Mack), was mixed by Colin Brain at Sticks Studios and mastered by Adam Vanryne.

Quarterman says of his new single: “That Old Chinese Takeaway Called Happiness was inspired by a long North London dog-walk, and the beginnings of a new relationship. This song came about on the drive home, when the feeling was mirrored and put into words by an actual Chinese Takeaway between Tottenham and Seven Sisters. One of those rare moments when the physical world and the realm of the senses somehow magically aligns”.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
