Eclectic Mainline 5th January 2010 – a pea new ear!


There’s nothing like a good pun.  And that was nothing like a good pun.  I couldn’t find a picture of an ear that didn’t make me feel a little ill, so I spared you that one as well as the pea.

This is what I played tonight, a mixture of new and old tunes, as this is traditionally a quiet time for new releases:
