....before music took over I used to work in outback Australia 1/2 a mile below mining gold and uranium...
At times while underground I would switch off my head lamp and disappear into that utter blackness, just merge into a bodyless nothing .... naturally that got me to thinking . I left the mine and bought a guitar, went broke, busked the bodhran through Canada and Ireland, lost it and then found something more....
....what I found were songs in the paper-mill poisoned lakes of my home town, I found songs in the crystals I once dug for, I found songs for long dead & exploited Chinese pearl divers and in the blue coils of opium they smoked and songs in the obsessions we share most of all.. love and death....

uranium should stay in the ground.
