Old Dogs - Old Tricks!

Well you may not be able to teach old dogs new tricks - but at least they can still do the old ones!

Almost ten years ago Jon and James spent a pretty drunk evening writing a song called "Million to one shot" in Wedmore in Somerset just down the road from the Glastonbury Tor which inspired the band's name.

The story goes that they had a tape recorder running which captured them writing the song, which was fortunate because the next morning it was all new to them! For some reason or another, the song has never been recorded in the studio... until now!

The guys hope you enjoy it as much as they enjoyed reliving all those memories (or lack of) of those great summers in Somerset.
