The earth slows down a little right before spring. It feels like everything grinds to a halt and any forward movement is imperceptible. Winter has pushed past its allotted time and is acting all entitled. So to keep things interesting in the basement of stately Elky Manor, the Elkys decided to officially add 2 new songs to the set list. Crafting a set list is a complicated task, much like Off Track Betting, you have a list of potential options and you have to rate them according to an arcane set of criteria that changes in context to location in the overall set as well at location and genera of gig. After much hemming and hawing and hand wringing, it was decided to throw rational to the four winds and allow chance to dictate the song you will hear at any given show. The songs were placed into Oona’s charming green porkpie and pulled one by one until 12 songs were selected.
How do you keep yourself from going stir crazy? Keep them guessing!
