“People rarely win wars, governments rarely lose them. They first use flags to shrink-wrap peoples’ minds and suffocate real thought, and then as ceremonial shrouds to cloak the mangled corpses of the willing dead.”

Pure joy.
Some new tunes.
I call Tim and Wim and ask them to join me on a Monday morning.
No rehearsal, but the music we’ve played together in the last couple of decades serves us well.
Most tunes only need one take – no dubbing or angst.
Just three musicians together, playing for each other.
Lucky me.
I hope you enjoy the music.

As humanity crashes and burns, we can all use some music to keep up our strength to work for a better world.
