about

Four tracks recorded around the time of the EU Referendum, {{with an additional two added from the day the vote went totally the wrong way.... }}

At time of writing, there's still no knowing which way the country is going to vote - to stay or to leave. While my idealist political take on the world is that the best forms of governance are co-operative, local, in small groups collaborating on bigger projects, there's no 'reform the entire country's structure along anarcho-syndicalist lines' option on the ballot. So I'm very much pro-staying in Europe. I'm an internationalist, feel more European than I do English, and greatly value the opportunity to travel and work and live abroad, as well as being deeply grateful to all the people from around the world who've chosen to make the UK their home, and have enriched the life on these islands immensely.

So here's an instrumental reflection on the situation. Each of these tracks was first posted on YouTube, so go searching there for the videos - I may at some point stump for a Bandcamp pro account so I can host the video here instead :)

{{ The two new added tunes were my initial musical reaction to the news. Angry, hurt, grieving, confused, broken, sad, then looking for a way through this that wasn't just a downward spiral... }}
