If it doesn't work, let me know and I'll put up a PDF.

Any feedback graciously received.

Please bear in mind I'm usually an editor, not a writer, so be kind!

(And: One quote that didn't make it into the piece which I loved...

"I've seen words connected with me in terms of describing me musically, especially in a live scenario. I've seen the words 'bluster,' 'boring' and 'burly,' all the fucking Bs connected with Bradfield. ... I suppose I'll have to take journalists word for it and assume that's my default setting."

Poor James!)
Not balaclava?

Congratulations...they say never phone your idols but you did alright

'I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.' (from Sea Fever - John Masefield)

That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all" - Emily Dickinson
