The first half of an evening of amp'd uke and bird mayhem, featuring the many, many calls of the northern mockingbird (mimus polyglottos). Recorded in thrilling stereo audio verité style at the Old Hairdressers, Glasgow, on the 12th of March, 2017. This could have been parsed into four separate tracks, but it wasn't.


released March 12, 2017
