Rainsmoke say: “These songs were born between the pavement and the moss, the moment after the rain has fallen before the embers of the bonfire died.
“These songs were born in a time before the tiresome keening of the techno touts, the feeble friending and the fevered twitching. A time when turntables mattered and music held its space inside the silence.”
