About

The world is going to hell in a hand basket!

This composition has three distinct sections, first the slow build with the spoken word of Nik Cox, second the double time jazz 'head' and electric guitar solo by Joe Callwood, third the ballistic collision of Baritone Sax - Jeff Henderson and Drumkit - Chris O'Connor, with the ensemble adding a riff to end in a rattling halt.
