Could you point me in the direction of The Sound of the Autumn Splitting, Nickname..? Would love to hear it... Autumn is my second favourite season, behind spring..

I dance to it every morning while I'm looking for my shoes, my coat, my hat.

Whatever happened to Firth of Forth? He was an amusing character.

I've literally only just heard it (once) and it is a challenging listen but I kind of liked it. Could see a contemporary dance piece being done with it that tells the story behind the lyric.

A nice addition for this years Literally.

West End Girls lockdown mix is brill too.

Funny because I've never understood the dislike for Sound of the Atom Splitting. I've always liked it and think it's completely brilliant and bonkers at the same time. :D

The rich tapestry that makes up the PSB fanbase!
No doubt...I only mentioned TSOTAS because I seem to remember many people saying they loved it.
