About

Liner notes by peerke:

Shortly after the final work on the album Off The Ground, Paul wanted to make a some remixes for 12” singles. He invited Martin Glover, alias Youth to his Hog Hill Mill Studio to work on the mixes, together with engineer Chris Potter and programmer Matt Austin. Martin was the bass player from the post punk band Killing Joke, but in the early nineties also formed a techno and house music duo Blue Pearl with American singer Durga McBroom.

Paul wanted that only his own music was used: so, no samples from James Brown tracks. Instead of working from one track at the time, Youth suggested to start from samples. Most of them from the Off the Ground sessions, but also some spoken word pieces from ‘The Broadcast’ and ‘Reception’ (from the final Wings album Back To the Egg) were used. Paul added some loops of mellotron, acoustic bass, recorder and banjo. These preparations were made on October 7 to 9, 1992.

During a long session on October 11 they made nine different mixes, for which different elements were used. The purpose was to edit them into one song. But Paul liked the results so much that he decided to release them as an album, using a new identity: The Fireman.

On November 15, 1993 – thirteen months after the sessions – Strawberries Oceans Ships Forest was released in the UK, both as a double vinyl album on clear vinyl and a cd. Another three months passed by before the album was released in the USA, on February 22, 1994. As nobody knew Paul McCartney was involved, the album didn’t gather much attention.

In the UK ‘Transpiritual Stomp’ was released, in November 1993, on a 12” vinyl single, with ‘Arizona Light’ as b-side – retitled as ‘Arizona Light Mix’.

Track 10 – Bison – 2:58 – a track from the second The Fireman album, Rushes.
