This single was released, about 3 years ago, by a previous band of Aberfeldy’s Riley Briggs (an ‘Egypto-UFO themed prog rock band’ called Firestone: Legend Of The Hawk who split shortly after its release; apparently due to incurring the wrath of the Mighty Ra – You couldn’t make it up could you?).

I have no idea how the original sounded but Aberfeldy make it sound delicious, a little odd certainly but not nearly as weird as it could be. The folksy sing-along style of the Aberfeldys is as infectious as ever and this is another good reason to get their album (‘Young Forever’ out 13 September).
