Way way back when The Pink Dots were still wet behind the ears I sent a cassette around to a few labels hoping to spark a little interest.
One label manager responded really positively to the material, singling out the song "Brighter Now". He phoned me to tell me how much he he'd laughed and how he loved the irony of the song. I didn't have the guts to blurt it out that there was absolutely not even a hint of irony there- this was actually how I felt.
And, in fact, STILL feel.
Here is the remake of a song that needed to be revisited.
"All the King's Men" is the sister album of "All the King's Horses". Remastering this provoked a few tears as it has been a while since I last listened ,but it still resonates.

Jean Jacques Birge is an artist with a history so rich with good music, it's possible to forget that there's life outside this submarine. Hours of deep listening await the curious listener. Legendary Pink Dots
