The Drive Home

Home again if this is home and sometimes I doubt it.

We ran through the discography of The Young Tradition in the car. They're new to us- we came to them by way of Peter Bellamy- and they're good- but I can see why Bellamy wanted out and eventually looked back in anger. The work starts off raw- the way he liked it- and gets progressively sweeter and softer. Their best album is the recording (which they knew nothing about at the time) of the gig they did at Oberlin. It's a real romper stomper.

We set off early, stopped for lunch at the Trentham Gardens Estate in Stoke and arrived back before three.

God, but this house is cold.
