You know its funny sometimes how things work out.

The lyrics for this were written whilst I was living in London at the height of the Psychedelic era around 1970. The clubs were full of sweet smelling substances and guitars sounding out just like you have played here.

So its a strange coming about that our two elements totally unchoreographed have come together here in 2008.

Long live hippies!!

Wow- I am thoroughly jealous. I would
have loved to live in England in 1970. But, alas; I’m too young and live in Oklahoma. :(

Ah yea the 70s in the UK, happy memories, it was great . We had power cuts, widespread industrial action, petrol and water rationing, no heating, rubbish piled up on the streets with collectors on strike, picket lines and riots, no minimum wage, and out of control racism.

I remember thinking at the time, as we sat round a couple of candles one night, how nice it would be to be young and living in Oklahoma. :-)

Oh man; that’s horrible…and I feel
slightly wrong about gettin’ a good laugh at your description :)
I guess I had this idyllic vision of England at that time ‘cause of the music. The situation kinda set the stage for punk, huh?

Hey FB it was meant to be funny, it was not all bad as a kid i enjoyed the blackouts , candles to bed, no tv etc.

But then the grass is always greener and yea punk was very antiestablishment:-)

Hey! What about giving the guy a review for his mix instead of just taking a trip down memory lane!!

I wish I had written my review when I first hear this- I thought it was completely evocative of 70s English prog rock, but absolutely thought the sentiment was really for the millenium. It also reminded me of King Arthur and Morrisey. And FB your guitar, as usual, breaks my heart.

Guitars work. Very nice. I’m agree with kaer, it reminds me classic rock. then comes in this strange break, it’s a journey! I Like weird things.

Love to read all the reviews and comments on this remix. Your guitar playing(and the sound too!) is really cool and inspires a lot to sample it and make some new sounds of it!

While listening to this on remix radio - tagged experimental, foound I really liked it. If I haven’t I’m downloading it for further review. Nice piece with fluctuations of anger and a vibe all its own!
