Monday's Long Song

Is it Monday? I'm having trouble keeping track of the days at the moment. I am still working so I can only guess how those cooped up but unable to do so are keeping track.

One good thing that did occur at the weekend was that Ted delivered the latest album from The Orb, Abolition of The Royal Familia and very good it is too especially the final two tracks, the first couple of tracks have taken a bit of getting used to as they are quite poppy soulful numbers but after a few listens they have grown on me. Like the previous LP, No Sounds Are Out of Bounds there was also an option to purchase a dub cd of the lp. I haven't had a chance to sit and listen to it in it's entirety but did head straight for the The Weekend It Rained Forever In Dub which for me is the centrepiece of the whole album and a rather calming soundtrack for these strange times.

Oh and don't get me started about the Royal Family, when the fucking heir to the throne irresponsibly decides to decant to remote Aberdeenshire with 100 staff when he has symptoms of the disease and against all instructions from the government and police it is time to question why we still support these leeches.

Stay safe people.

Very nice. The album is a bit confusing in first listen especially the first 3 tracks but then does hit it's groove.

I'm really enjoying what I've heard of the new Orb album. I'm also having a very hard time knowing what day it is,completely forgot it was Monday yesterday.
