Tropicality



Strange weather here: rain/sun/rain/sun - heat: all a bit tropical, I thought, as I walked back through the woods from the station tonight, hacking dense vegetation from my path with my faithful machete.

So - this'll do nicely: lilting and lovely and impossible not to sway your big hips to.

From a 21 year old Observer offer mail-order cassette: the Lion Of Zimbabwe, banned from Mugabe's State radio and living in exile in the USA.

  3. You must have had a subconscious World Cup theme going on here young Davy - on the road to South Africa via Zimbabwe.

    Where next?...

  4. I've been meaning to mention for a while, and this is as good a place as any to I suppose, that the music is now coming atcha from Box.net, so you can play the tunes without/before downloading them; I've always liked being able to do that over at Ally's and Mondo's and thought I'd go for it here. We aim to please, etc.
