There is no message.
Everything is fine. It's a golden age.
Not sure yet. I probably shouldn't even be on it with all these real musicians.
Lack of time.

I have no idea who you haven't heard of. I like Idles at the moment but you've heard of them. Also playing some old Kevin Ayres and Robert Wyatt. Though the new Regal Worm album is really good.
