Last time I saw you, memories will stay
The good times we had, will always be in my mind

I'm missing you, missing you, missing you boy
I'm missing you, missing you, missing you girl

The day you left us
You never know what you got 'til you lose it

The recordings on this CD are the culmination of a songwriting project with participants at Haslar Immigration Removal Centre which took place in January 2011. 

Haslar IRC are pleased to be working alongside Music in Detention to be able to provide an expressive and creative outlet for the immigration detainees in their care. They embrace the cultural diversity of their detainee population and encourage detainees to celebrate their unique cultural identity and nationality through music, dance and song. Music In Detention workshops assist Haslar IRC in promoting respect for the many cultural differences between the nationalities of detainees and promotes positive interaction between staff and detainees.

Music In Detention works through music to give voice to immigration detainees and create channels of communication between them, immigration detention staff, local communities and the wider public.

This project was delivered by Drum Runners and facilitated by Rocky Chessman and Paul Midgley, on behalf of Music In Detention. 07843 348656

All tracks written and recorded by participants from Haslar IRC with Rocky Chessman and Paul Midgley, January, 2011. Produced by Rocky Chessman. Special thanks go to all participants of the project and the staff at IRC Haslar.
