Today's ride took me down the estuary out to Dawlish, the home of the Black Swan. See, there it is flying above the breakwater in the photo. Oh no, hang on, that's a seagull. Whatever.
It will probably come as no great surprise to many regular readers of a certain age that Dawlish always makes me think of The Triffids, if only because of their lovely 1989 album 'The Black Swan'. Here's a fitting track from that set.
Here's one that arrived just too late to make it onto the first Unpopular mix of the year. From the forthcoming live 'In Cambridge' set by Casiotone For The Painfully Alone, out in February on the fabulous Orindal label.
