There has been an outbreak of man flu at Crotchety Mansions. In the interests of public safety Crotchety Man has cancelled all public engagements for the time being. A number of restrictions have been put in place on current activities, too. This Track of the Week was chosen simply because it was the stand-out track on my Release Radar this week and R.E.M. have not featured in these pages before. It has been written without the benefit of research of any kind.
And now I’m taking my coughs, sniffles and shivers back to bed. Please send in the night nurse.
