Thank you John and Ian

January 06, 2004

John Jones and Ian Telfer write most of the lyrics for the Oysterband.

When I am feeling down, or unproductive, or slumpy, and want a musical kick in the pants, I often turn to them.

I just played two tracks on the big stereo: The Early Days of a Better Nation and and Gamblers (We Do Not Do That Any More)

I turned the stereo up to six. We have a lot of stereo - at six you can feel the bass moving your sternum and almost feel it moving your clothing.

My ears are now numb - but I feel less slumpy and more willing to write. (The sunlight outside helps as well.)
