Yes, yes, another album beckons. That wonderfully naive moment, when you begin with a blank canvas, and recreate that childish joy of throwing colour against an empty canvas (although hopefully now tempered by a modicum of experience and good taste).

First up for the Vicarious treatment is “The Reggae Song”, a favourite from the Tall Pointy One’s college days, followed by Under My Wing, which will need a special singer – maybe Passenger, as managed by David and Tim at IE. Although I suspect they will advise their artist to go nowhere near our left-field projects.

I have also found my feet tapping away to the chorus of The Rainbow in 5/4 (more accurately 4/4, with an extra beat’s rest), so we shall see where that may go. Onward!
