Life Is Elsewhere (also known as Never Needing) was a song I wrote with Brian Hulse for Plenty in 1988. When Plenty split, No-Man continued to play it live (alongside another Plenty track, Forest Almost Burning). When No-Man were signed in the early 1990s, Life Is Elsewhere was one of the pieces the labels were most smitten by (Days In The Trees and Colours were the others). This version comes from the Swagger demo tape (1989). It’s entirely fitting that the sensitive video has been created by Plenty bass player, David K Jones.
