Thanks for listening, peggs; very kind. Funny story: before we sent the track to Dave, I actually sketched out a guitar solo for it. It wasn't great or anything but I thought it had a couple of nice phrases that we could expand upon at least. Then, Dave sent back his ridiculous guitar parts and suffice to say, I kept my half-arsed effort to myself. Talk about being humbled; the man is a master. Thanks to you too, donovan. You know, it does have a touch of Colin about it doesn't it? If anyone is interested, the other Dave (Mattacks) plays drums on this one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfcD4yJ6kbI He's not bad either...

Thanks for the listen, Bimble. peggs, that's a compliment I'll take any day (and in the nicest possible way. ) It's funny, in his review, Nick Deriso at "Something Else" said of that song, "Sounds like XTC doing Bob Dylan". Good enough! I also just got wind of a review on Alan Haber's Pure Pop site that described our song, Elastic Man (also featuring Gregsy on guitars) as being like a "sixties hug with echoes of Paul McCartney and Donovan that sounds like it’s enclosed in a Dukes of Stratosphear wrapper." That made my friggin' day in the nicest possible way! Anyway, if anyone is interested in a couple of free downloads, you can grab them here: here. Thanks again guys; your comments are appreciated.
