Snails aren’t racing, so why should we? Let’s slow things down a bit, and settle in for a nice relaxing time…

…featuring tales of a massive puncture, of sorts, smuggling, a-mazing research, a musical tour of the world (caution: bears!) ending in a good land, a quick glance across the northern sky, sailors being sailors, an excessive of verbiage in titles (Won’t somebody think of the spines?!), and a selection of whimsy from somewhere unexpected.

The Trudy are on their Twitter, but are also ever-present on Bandcamp or their home page. Curiously though, you can’t get hold of our theme tune in any of those places, as that’s from their first (well, halfth, but that’s another story) album, which isn’t available online.
