visit from Pok, etc.

Pok stopped by again for the first time in a while. He's been busy in London processing a load of old Spacegoats material for long-overdue CD release with Mark from SoundsCollective. He bought himself a new acoustic guitar while he was staying here, and spent quite a bit of time getting to know it. We played a few Dylan songs together ("Love Minus Zero", "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine"). He'd been down in the south of Spain for a while recently, too - left his mandola there in a state of relative disrepair. We didn't record anything this time, but here are a few rough jams we've done together over the years.

The Spacegoats in their heyday - Twyford Down, July 1993. Pok, in typical boundary-dissolving mode, tests the robustness of the photograph's edge

Another Spanish connection - I was contacted by Jordi Orriols Luque in Barcelona asking if he could use some Children of the Drone music for his podcast. As he explains:

"Its a radio for the soul, the comunication, sincerity and the research of the truth..."

He'd like me to record an explanation of the music, the Drone concept, this blog, and my approach to music generally.
