John Mitchell had this to say:
“Are we all actually unique? Are we copies is a nagging doubt I have had lying in my subconscious in this age of synthesised society and Xerox mentality, and this video was a jolly good excuse to go bounding around Beachy Head at 6 o’clock in the morning, I hope you like it!”
Please Come Home has been receiving some fantastic reviews, with Prog calling it ‘one mighty statement of intent’ and Fireworks stating it’s ‘one of the finest pieces of Prog Pop’.

Backed by the storming rhythm section of Nick Beggs on bass and Craig Blundell on drums, the album also sees guest appearances from Peter Cox (Go West), Nik Kershaw, Steve Hogarth (Marillion), Heather Findlay, Kim Seviour (Touchstone), Jem Godfrey (Frost*) as well as narration provided by British actor Lee Ingleby (Master & Commander, Harry Potter).
John Mitchell had this to say about the project: “I’d long thought about doing an album where I could have total control from start to finish with the music, lyrics, production, and choosing who I wanted to contribute - expanding from the idea of just a solo album. Musically, this album is very proggy, but more about atmosphere than technical expertise, inspired by my love of science fiction and interest in the evolution of the human race.”
The track-listing for the album is as follows:
02. God Vs. Man
03. The Boy In The Radio
04. Why Do We Stay?
05. Lonely Robot
06. A Godless Sea
09. Are We Copies?
