Rave On – One for Our Dad


Scrunch your eyes up, imagine Buddy with a bit more curly hair and you’ve got a fair idea of what our Dad used to look like. I’ve been thinking a lot about him recently. What a bloke. A proper liberal with a nice line in quiet rebellion, he has something to teach us all - and I don’t just mean book-binding (one of his many talents). Pa Lonesome is a man so patient that he once listened to Henry’s Dream all the way through waiting for the song to start. And so placid that he once taught the local 7 year old ruffians how to use the saws they were hacking away at my front wall with.
So here’s a song for our Dad, Buddy Holly fan and all round good guy.

Buddy Holly - Raining In My Heart
