This was released by the short-lived and much-missed cdr label nid nod and came lovingly parcelled in brown paper and string. Each parcel was jewelled with a stamp from somewhere exotic - click on cover image to see whole thing.

The music is a single piece but is a shorter than most of my other long-form tracks. It is also noticeably more upbeat - some might even hazard to say life-affirming. I think this has a refreshing fizz and clarity which tempers the usual melancholy. The mood is meant to reflect the grateful state of mind I was enjoying at the time it was recorded. Ironically, this was one of the last midwich releases before depression got the better of me and led to the shelving of FFR. Oh well, layer a bit of cheap poignancy over it and it sounds even better…

If you’ve not bothered with my long-form stuff before I recommend this as ‘entry-level’.
