Basic 28/2

I wonder if I’d still be playing music if I hadn’t met the Wah Wahs. I wonder how different my life would be – what would I¬†be doing right now instead of writing about them? Probably sleeping, it’s pretty late. I’ve had an crazy¬†weekend and I’m¬†in desperate need of a day off. On Friday we […]

#hero 16/2/16

  Dr. Alan put his medical skills into action for the first time when we were playing music in the flat . Mindlessly, Jiggy shrugged at what was happening outside. ‘Someone’s decked it.’ We looked outside and¬†people were beginning to crowd around the man lying on the pavement. Alan raced¬†down the stairs to take a […]
