The Questionable Question This album was offered for free along with the BC concert on 2021-05-01. Thanks for that.

The best thing that you can say about a live stream is that once it is over, you really want to see the band live. And this is the case here. Being a grumpy and ever nit-picky reviewer, this performance was nothing but extremely enjoyable. Great atmosphere, great songs.

Hopefully there will be another stream at some point.

When I woke up yesterday, my dear Bleakly running through the tasks ahead I wondered slowly with a mournful ear I watched the sun up and returned to bed To my dear Whispering finer things Since these here Which are my favourite things Happening When they happen, happen I know my love When I woke up for the second time And I was glad for I had slept a while And I was grateful for the colour of your thread Demanding that I should return to bed To my dear Whispering finer things Since these here Which are my favourite things Happening When they happen, happen I know my love

about

Reworks is an EP dedicated to revisiting key songs from our time together over the past 10 years and approaching them as if they were completely new.

After years of being performed, the arrangement of a song can come to feel stuck in time, its stylistic choices reflecting a version of ourselves we don’t quite recognise anymore. Yet something remained in the DNA of these four songs that we weren’t quite ready to throw away. For this EP we imagined we were arranging these pieces for the first time, bringing in our current ideas and influences to give them a new lease of life.

This project is an exploration of what characterises the essence of a composition and how radically arrangements can differ while maintaining the same core idea. The result recognises the work of the past decade, while looking forward to the next steps in our journey.

Lovingly reworking the pieces that have defined us, we hope to give the listener the opportunity to find new meanings in these songs and connect with our music afresh.

about

Me and My Friends Bristol, UK

The sound of English folk colliding head-on with the golden-era music of 1970s West Africa and the Caribbean.

Bound by a mutual love of the sun-drenched vintage sounds of afrobeat, soukous, highlife and roots reggae, the UK-based 5-piece re-invent these influences around the instantly recognisable voice and finger-style guitar of songwriter and singer Nick Rasle.
