Thanks Cheryl - was pretty entertaining!

Belated response due to being in UK/Ireland for a month and not having much net access. On a note relevant to the list (glad you''re all still out there), we were waiting to cross a road at Trafalgar Square when I noticed a cyclist speeding past (as they all seem to do in London - probably a survival mechanism) was wearing an Oils t-shirt. It was black with yellow writing but  unfamiliar to me - possibly from the most recent tour? Anyway, it was great to see.

Oh, and before I left Aus for the holiday, I pulled out ESM for the first time in yonks and gave it a good thrashing cranked up to 11 - I'd forgotten how awesome it is! Pyschedelia, folkie, Doors-influence, thick bass lines, hip-shaking grooves. i suspect this might have been an album that Jim had in mind when he said was commenting on the music biz, saying something about thinking you'd done some really good work and it barely made a ripple.

Hi everyone -

I came upon this Indian couple who are psychologists and have a YouTube channel dedicated to reacting to songs.  I'm not into this concept as a whole, but this couple give insightful opinions, at least I think so.  What's really nice for me is to see people reacting to the Oils for the first time, and the joy and fresh perspective they bring.  They've done Beds and Blue Sky - hope you enjoy Emoji
