In hindsight, this is the first tape I’m really happy with. It’s also the tape which drew the attention of Tim Boorman, who picked up a copy while visiting the woods with his girlfriend, Lesley, and their dog, Henry. Tim sent a message to the anonymous email address inside the package and has been a dear friend of mine ever since. It’s a real privilege to be part of such a connection. This one attempts to depict the approaching chill and warm colours of Autumn.
