This is the third song in a series by Graham Butchart who was the percussionist/guitarist/singer with Marastique, and is now an author of no fixed abode ;)

Graham recorded this with some classy musicians in the north of NSW.

It's been 35 years since Graham and I played together in Marastique, and a few weeks ago, he dropped in for the night with his lovely partner Sue (from New Zillund). LOTS of catching up to do!

If you are interested in a pretty interesting story of "hippie musician becomes businessman in Bali but decides it's not worth his life", get a copy of Graham's book "Acrobats Of Reason". I've (Neil) just finished it, and it's fascinating stuff.

The hiss in the recording is as low as I can get it - not sure what went wrong, but the music is terrific.

Excellent song Graham!
I'm sorry I couldn't get the hiss out, but I still think this is a very nice tune. Who would have thought we'd be back doing musical stuff together after all these years. Why on earth didn't we break out some guitars when you were here?
Cheers, N

Five "young" musicians from a lifetime ago - still making music. This incarnation of Marastique played in the early 70s in Sydney's northern beach suburbs. After not seeing each other for 36 years we have finally sought each other out and Graham ... [see more]
