Great stuff, this. (My first thought was, Nice Cave on how to write a love song? That's like Barbra Streisand on How to Write a Monster Ruff.) :) Love your blog, Excellent work!

Excellent blog you have here. I've just spent a very pleasant hour or so browsing through your archives. Whole bunch of stuff that I'd forgotten/never knew (or else don't actually like, but so what...). Mr Huw = real find!

Thanks for bothering.

Cheers both. More Mr Huw on way.
