An EP including the song: "Show Me Your Soul" dedicated to Imelda Marcos, and her legendary shoes. Thanks to Antony Green for the painting of her shoe that constitutes the cover.

Beehive Candy:
Well I have to say having been very impressed with the last release, this latest offering is perhaps even stronger. Great songs, and excellent musicianship and production make Julian a likely contender for much bigger status in the music industry. The song's Electricity & Blood Destiny have to be my favorite's on the EP, lets hope they reach a much wider audience.

Boom Boom Chik:
What amazed me about his music was how different the first EP was form the 2nd. I liked his sound so much that I felt I needed to ask him a few questions about his musical experiences

Back When We Were Beautiful:
Overall it's a great display of Julian's talents and of his variety in music making. The EP is a real musical journey; taking us from grooving pop rock, chilling out with some more mellow tracks and finishing with a real rave of a tune. I urge you to download the EP now!

Track Name: Show Me Your Soul
I've seen empires rise and fall out of the sky,
I've watched history unfold like the iron butterfly
I've danced through life with diamonds on my feet
Along the road that runs right to my destiny

If you wanna walk a mile in my shoes
Show me your soul
One of these days they'll walk all over you
Show me your soul

I am the morning star that brightens up the sky
I am the rose that plucks the thorns out of your side
I am the muse to blinks the angels to your eye
As the sorrow that we face defines our joy

If you wanna walk a mile in my shoes
Show me your soul
One of these days they'll walk all over you
Show me your soul

And your laughter fills with tears
And they're falling through the years
As the world keeps turning round

And there's no time left to cry
So your sorrow fills with joy
As the road keeps rolling on
Track Name: Electricity
Another endless night
The shadows on my wall tease the light
Pale fingers bleached with waste
Though bitter this strychnine leaves no taste

Another endless night
The bullets in my gun worn by time
This time is bleeding out my minutes slow
And behind this wall I make my current flow

Your electricity pulsing around my veins
When you're kissing me, makes me feel alive again
When your pulse turns to flow,
electricity knowing this place where we belong
Your electricity turns me on

Another endless night
Your voice is all I hear from the outside
I take your scent, I breathe you into me
Catch the sparks from all your electricity

You do this to me

Your electricity pulsing around my veins
When you're kissing me, makes me feel alive again
When your pulse turns to flow,
electricity knowing this place where we belong
Your electricity turns me on
Track Name: Force Of Habit
Can't eat, you can't sleep
Watching kiss scars splintering the concrete
Where sin town and sick city meet

In shock, you're looking good
You're just another dog, barking up at Hollywood
Just close your eyes and pretend you're alive

Wait for your flags to unfurl and bear the weight of the world
Under the force of habit
And when your bridges all burn, you'll bear the weight of the world
Under the force of habit

Wanna know what you want
Let my libido take you to a restaurant
I'll get you drunk and then I'll get you high

You lose your mind, you lose your clothes
And I won't stop until we're both comatose
Just close your eyes and pretend your alive

Wait for your flags to unfurl and bear the weight of the world
Under the force of habit
And when your bridges all burn, you'll bear the weight of the world
Under the force of habit

So many people that you meet will tell you lies
So many places you drag your feet are paradise
So many things that you rather be you fantasise
And after all you might as well just live your life

Wait for your flags to unfurl and bear the weight of the world
Under the force of habit
And when your bitches all burn, you'll bear the weight of the world
Under the force of habit
Track Name: Butterfly
Those precious words all trample over my feelings
Leaving footprints large as dragon's trails in the wind
And the whispers rushing loud as the roar of a jet plane
Stops my mind from shutting down my brain

Because a red light and a green light means the same to a blind eye
We travel to the devil on the back of a butterfly
A stop sign on a battle ground, the death of a fantasy
We travel to the devil on the back of a butterfly

Well I'm tired and I'm weak and I'm lost and I'm cold and I'm lonely
Because I feel the same, I feel the same as you
And I really want to know what brought down the shadows
When our light, when our light was shining through

Because a red light and a green light means the same to a blind eye
We travel to the devil on the back of a butterfly
A stop sign on a battle ground, the death of a fantasy
We travel to the devil on the back of a butterfly
Track Name: Blood Destiny
As the twilight owns your flesh skin and bones
Like a destination carved in stone
And silken strands that bind your hands and lead you home

As the moonlight brings the shadow things
With eyes that glisten golden rings
The dark imparts its secret paths to guide you home

Hear the thunder rolling out your name
Feed the river rushing through your veins
your blood destiny

From before the flood your path was drawn in blood
And now your future's understood
Free your anger to feed your hunger, and guide you home

Hear the thunder rolling out your name
Feed the river rushing through your veins
Feel the stormclouds gather in your brain
Feed the river rushing through your veins
your blood destiny
