And so not built at all
And therefore built forever.”
Oscar Wilde

A discussion has beeen going on over at Jude Hill’s Spirit Cloth blog about what we would make without an audience… well these two guys have been making music with & without an audience for a long time now and y’know I love hearing the songs in process when Roderick is writing the words and nailing down the melody but they come alive at the gigs, the Les Paul needs to have the amp turned up to really sing & the bass and drums getting everyone’s feet  up and dancing, well there’s really nothing like it! Every gig is different and Rod has shown me that you have to put all your heart and soul into every single night up there on stage, these guys will keep playing ’til their hands stop moving, the music is their life & I love them for it !

    what beautiful photographs MO. I particularly like the three blokes together proudly showing off their hearts, and their obvious special friendship. Will Rod be wearing the stole at each gig? So happy to hear it was a great night. Marg. ox
