New album out this week - The Ultra Vivid Lament.

First album to be written on piano rather than guitar, top loaded with 3 lovely songs including the single Orwellian.

Sounds surprisingly similar to ABBA in parts, if ABBA had an angry man bellowing pretentious lyrics over the top of the pop.

Bear baiting & dog fights a speciality.
