Hugh's third album Announcer, a musical and technical quantum leap, spawned the 7-inch single Late night hunger on sexy, heavy-duty blue vinyl.

A collector's item, to be sure. A few copies are still to be found by trawling the web. Good luck.

You can find more info, Hugh's notes and lyrics for the LP on the Announcer page (previous disc).

Late Night Hunger lyrics and notes  
All text in this rather fetching blue-green by Hugh Featherstone.
 
Late Night Hunger Late night hunger A side

Bass: Charles Lewis. Guitars: Bill and Hugh. Sax: Colin Dunwoodie

We couldn't get the right-sounding telephone; you'll have to imagine it just
before the solo. But the telephone and the lyric are both questions of fidelity.


Rowena, you call me from the Orly
I can't hardly hear you over the band
Musak
Filling up the hallway
Can't get no sleep, no, in this foreign land

Rowena, the corner cowboys have a word for my condition
Late night hunger
Makes a lonely boy forget your sweet commission

Rowena, it's time to throw the gun away
Can't keep my grip no more on this merry-go-round
Musak
They're taking all the fun away
Seems like every stair go up while I'm coming down

Rowena, the corner cowboys have a word for my condition
Late night hunger makes a lonely boy forget
Your sweet commission
 
Late Night Hunger Betrayal B side

Bass: Charles Lewis. Rhythm guitars: Bill Huggins and Hugh. Solo guitar: Bill Huggins

The text is full of echoes; the whole song is a haunted house.
I could not live in or with it anymore so I put it on the album.


Betrayal
It's got him an his knees by the bedroom door
Betrayal
Love is just a tease but he's back for more
Lonely
Silence breaks the heart of a city where the people died
So many streets before you get to the other side
Look at all the people, you see what they do
They're breaking up the old and they're corrupting the new
Betrayal

Daytime
The sun is up, you're working and they got you beat
Night time
Tthe neon buys you, you're living and you're feeling neat
Evening
She comes and whispers, whispers you're the only one
Morning
The neon dies, and all your garbage greets another sun
You look at all the people, and you see what they do
They're breaking up the old and they're corrupting the new
Betrayal

Shakedown
She wakes up and sugars up that bitter pill
Breakdown
He wakes up and notices she's dressed to kill
Betrayal cuts him like a knife in the middle of the night
Betrayal
And no, no, nothing can make it right
He looks at all the people, he sees what they do
They're breaking up the old and they're corrupting the new
Betrayal
