Snow in April

As Prince sang, sometimes it snows in April. Quite often in fact. The sound that starts the latest release from the Memory Drift album is the twanging of a barbed wire fence recorded a couple of years ago around this time of year at an old chalk and flint mine. Most of the hillside is missing, leaving cliffs and  chalky grass topped stalagmites. There are grassy meteor strike bowls formed from ancient flint mines and the place reminds me of the Max Ernst picture Europe After the Rain. So two years ago outside drumming and discovering twangy fences; this year biting winds and polystyrene snow.
