Around 2002 we were playing more music in bedrooms and lounges than we should have been really. Now that we’ve moved on to just lounges and pubs and churches we look back on some of those bedroom sessions with a great deal of fondness. One guy called James had a bedroom full of proper recording stuff and keyboard and mics and a lap steel and an ude!!!! He was James Youngjohns and he still lives in Manchester and played in such great bands as AnnaKashfi and Last Harbour. He told us about something called Americana and as far a we were concerned he may as well have invented it.
On this song written by Mike, he plays lead guitar, harmonica and lap steel. Mike plays guitar and sings.
