Instead of writing much at the moment, I’ve had other things take over the musical side of life.

After a year and a half in the musical wilderness, I’ve managed to get over the deep-rooted lovehate relationship I had developed with my guitar to come up with this latest endeavour.

It’ll involve mandolins, glockenspiels and other wonderful things, and is thanks in no small part to the influence of Mr. Toby Hayes of ‘Shoes and Socks Off’ – pictured above enjoying a jacuzzi next to my bespectacled self.

Have a listen to ‘smoke and rabbits’ here, and check back to see what might unfold.
