Canny Annie 03:53
Canny Annie had a canine companion He might have been a crossbreed May have been Italian. They walked in the woods With the squirrels in the trees And they listened to the birds And they shot the breeze. Canny Annie had a cat called Che He might have been a Maine Coon May have been a stray. She knew he was good He was rescued from the street And they cuddled while they could And their life was neat. Canny Annie had fish in a pond She rode her broomstick With her magic wand. Had peas for breakfast And cheese for tea And talked to the fish Telepathically... Canny Annie wore her heart on her sleeve She held my hand And she felt us breathe. She dreamed of a place We could fly away free And speak of magick and alchemy... Canny Annie lit candles by the fire And healed the world With a deep desire. To make it better for us to be. Put women in charge and why don’t we see If the world runs better on empathy... (and a little dose of Reiki...)
My favourite sound is the witches bells On her front door. Open the door to her house of spells You can see more. Nobody asks and no-one tells What they stand for. There are many parallels In the folklore. She sells seashells on the dancefloor Just to pay for Dior. She can be Tyrannosaur She can be so much more. She’s your diplomatic corps And your long-lived sycamore. She can be your lifelong mentor And forevermore...

Don’t just listen to your head You’ve been trained to think that you should always obey it. Listen to your heart. Listen to your gut. Don’t let the mind rule over them, it’s full of all the shit that people have forced into you. Listen to your dreams Follow intuition. Nobody can teach you stuff your heart doesn’t know And only you can know where it will take you. Stuff the rules - Remember they are only there for fools.

Spirit of Earth, sand and stone, your power is patience and endurance. You sustain our humble existence. Spirit of earth, spirit of fertility. Spirit of water, rivers and springs, your power dissolves and releases, purifies and heals. Peaceful but mighty, lifeblood of the earth. Spirit of water, spirit of nourishment. Spirit of fire, lightning and hearth, purifying power, glow of the rising sun. Force of new beginnings, flame of passion and life. Spirit of fire, spirit of force. Spirit of air, feathers and winds, in the ebb and flow of your eternal words: clarity, strength, harmony. Spirit of air, spirit of wisdom. Spirit of infinity. Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are Earth signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are Water signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are Fire signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are Air signs.

When you started talking I thought it was a game Read your mind and realised That it was pretty tame You didn’t feel emotion And you thought it was a shame You felt like you were guilty And you held on to the blame. When you came the second time I knew you weren’t the same You saw the fault of fashion And you saw the fault of fame You knew the old excuses They were pretty lame And you really won me over With your passion and your aim. I really had to love you cos you loved yourself again. I really had to love you cos you loved yourself again.
As above, so below As within, so without As the universe, so the soul. Elektronik Krampus Kismet. She has the soul of a gypsy She has the heart of a hippy She has the spirit of a dragonfly I fly, therefore I am. Energy twister, Powerful resistor, Supersonic Little sister. I feel, therefore I am. I feel emotions, and I am. (I feel) emotionally attached Emotionally attached to you. Energy twister, Powerful resistor, Supertonic Little sister. All the people in outer space Do faddy diets in their home base. Does them no good in their inner place But you should try it, it’s fun to chase. See that advert in your face Have to buy it, it’s a rat race. Forget that, don’t deny it let’s all go on a Reiki riot!
Take care of yourself, Love people she said Take care of yourself, Love people she said Theresa, you completed me You gave love unconditionally And when you went I had nowhere to go No reason to smile or laugh any more No present, no future, No reason to live My fire burnt out, And nothing to give. But she came to me one night in my bed Take care of yourself, love people she said Take care of Nikki, love people she said Take care of Willow, love people she said. And she came to me in the middle of the night And she touched my soul and held me tight And in the dark she showed me light And opened my eyes and gave me sight. And she sent me friends who listened to me And they held my hand and talked to me And they healed my heart and let me be me And thank you Terry for setting me free. I’ll never stop loving you You’ll always be with me Walking beside me Keeping me safe.
(not quite a Quatrain) She’s little Miscellaneous The shock is quite convulsive She’s never extraneous And she finds bad repulsive... She’s spontaneous. Her movement is propulsive She’s all contemporaneous Totally compulsive And in your subcutaneous... She’s impulsive. She’s dynamical - 4 dimensional She’s botanical - Insurrectional... She’s a radical. She’s indispensable She’s fantastical She’s very sensual She’s untameable... She’s unconventional. Spontaneous... And radical... Impulsive... Unconventional.
American Indian societies and spiritual practices gave birth to a new way of thinking. The following writers are credited with catapulting nature spirituality in America. Ralph Waldo Emerson “Nature always wears the colours of the spirit” “The earth laughs in flowers.” “Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience” “The happiest man is he who learns from nature the lesson of worship” Henry David Thoreau “What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?” “Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” “Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” John Muir “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” “Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” “Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.”


NoMen fans! Swell Maps fans! Come together with the first album by Phones NoMan!

Phones Sportsman was a founding member of Swell Maps along with Nikki Sudden, Jowe Head and Epic Soundtracks. Now he has given up being a Sportsman and become a full time NoMan writing words & music and performing them with panache and style! This is a fourteen track album with songs ranging from electronic dub to Post-Punk with an occasional heart felt ballad.

If you are familiar with the "Phones Sportsman Band" material that the NoMen were involved with between 2008 and 2023 you will know what to expect. Once described as "Avant Garde Cabaret" or "bizzare mixture of renewed old-school post-punk, disrupted disco, synth-vibes and extravagant madness!” or even "Like the Sex Pistols meets Teletubbies!” however people try to describe Phones’ music it’s clearly uncategorisable and very, very good!

"When wife and soul-mate Theresa died in September 2023, I thought my life was not going to be worth living. After a month it was still the same… then something amazing happened from two special women I had never met before.
Maria’s counselling helped turn me around when I was at my lowest, and she said that I’d be led to people who would help me.
Victoria has now healed my broken heart, unblocked my emotions and enabled positivity and creativity with her immense empathy, selfless love and powerful reiki. She is the beautiful little sister I never knew I had, and a kindred spirit.
Without them, these songs would not exist. Long live magick!"

Phones is proud to be a NoMan.
