I'm amazed by what goes on! Who isn't? Wisdom, mixed perhaps with a touch of cynicism, has produced a few crunchy songs which I'm slowly learning not to sing in polite company. And there's also a tiny swag of worldly songs about strong women, ice-cream and death.rnrnMy passion is music, and I'm one of those terrible faux musicians blighted by a nascent love of clever musical electronics and Gypsy Jazz. God I wish I could play that stuff well!rnrnrn
