    Three songs set aside. Wonder when we'll hear those.

    When they reissue Folklore together with Grimspound in an expanded, rearranged edition.

    I kid, I kid!

    Ouch but at least it will get folk talking, on the various fan pages, about these '5 star' albums again. A week after release of each album and the talk was all back to Genesis again

    1. The Second Brightest Star


    Bassist Greg Spawton exclusively tells Prog: “The Second Brightest Star is the last album in a cycle of releases which started back in 2009 with The Underfall Yard album.

    “Our writing over this period has focused on the English landscape, the people that work on the land and their folklore stories.

    “We'll be moving on to different landscapes and subjects with our music in future years as we play more shows outside of England. But we had a few more stories left to tell and wanted to bring them together on The Second Brightest Star.”

    Well dang... I'm still getting acquainted with Folklore and Grimspound .

    Will surely be picking this one up at some point as well.

    I'm really happy about that. BBT is one of my favorite bands, but much of the music and themes have felt tired and overdone since Wassail.

    Edit: I liked this The Second Brightest Star track. Though the use of "hedgerow" at the end is one of those overdone lyrics I was speaking of. It just stands out and takes me out of the music. I think I like, though, the lyrical homage at the end to The Wide Open Sea.

    I heard BBT is going to start using the word Shrubbery for those who complain about Hedgerow.

    I'd be even more impressed if they incorporated "Roger the Shrubber" into the lyrics.
    Just sitting at home rocking back and forth and jealously caressing my invisible collection of theoretical assets.

    1000 piece puzzle?
    http://themerchdesk.com/merchdesk/in...product_id=689

    The artwork is nice and looks like it would make a fun and challenging puzzle (I can easily imagine myself getting lost for days in completing the gorgeous hedgerow--er, I mean shrubbery--there). I think I'm in.

    Do any us vendors have this in yet?
    Will physical CDs be available via Bandcamp?
