Story behind the song
"Please exit via the gift shop" was a frequently signed request on our trips round various tourist destinations last year.
It soon became my personal mantra, particularly as I realised don't we all at one time exit through the gift shop?
It became the obvious title for this hotch potch piece, partly because of the environmental recordings I made at the beach at Bournmouth, from a minature train at Bleinheim and so on that meant for me it captured the spirit of that holiday.
The other connection was that I used it to try out various little gifts, new bits of equipment or older things I had but had never quite found a place for. All of these were added in, over doing it until I ended up with a sticky sweet mess that you then find stuck down the side of the car seat when the holiday is over.
