Kiss your lover when the gorse is flower.
Optimism lives here lives. Sometimes Goliath is on side.
The time when Absinthe and others can be drunk as a friend and not just a staff. Temperance no! We have pendants and carnival. Spring.
Our firewood has made it through.
Another processional click, another rook, another flood, Noah's dove.The real thing.
The fallen Beech is waiting to be split and sawn for next winter, for it cometh, hot then cold on our heels. But now, now it is spring. Don't look back. Time to let go of the fear for that dark winter past.

As the seasons change so do the months. February's EP is a protracted ramble through the month. Four improvised song ideas played and recorded as one then cleaved in two. This month's EP is FREE to download. Thanks to everyone who bought January's, both the online version and physical.


released February 28, 2013

Recorded and produced by Peter Collis and Laurence Collyer.
