Brilliant, beguiling wordsmithery, swathed in the timeless allure of classic tunes on vinyl. A warm and uplifting journey, gently spiralling through life’s absurdities, interweaving Toby Thompson’s singular poetic voice with some outrageously good songs. The perfect new setting for this uniquely musical and enigmatic poet.

As the preview audience said: “Something almost indescribably brilliantly lovely… absolute authenticity…”; “'Touching and often achingly funny…"
