... was one of ten winners, out of 194 entries on Fresh On The Net, BBC Radio 6 DJ Tom Robinson's music blog. (Batch 363, May 4th)

"In John’s own words the track was written after an anxiety dream (nightmare!) which seemed to merge post-Brexit Britain and climate change. He takes us spiralling through a smog laden, heavy breathing, high end state of unease, telling tales of never-ending dire consequences of the way we’re living today, that’s how it made me feel anyway. Maybe not written with ‘lockdown’ in mind, but in this current situation we find ourselves in, it serves to heighten feelings of fretfulness. Vividly delivered, superbly recorded, the backing music is a complete accompaniment to carry these thought-provoking words."
