Had seen the FB comments and to be honest it is one of the reasons I detest
Faecesbook. I guess a lot gets lost in translation for some, but just gets

long run best ignored.
Well done to the band though, this album seems to be reaching a wider
audience and hopefully it inspires then to do a few more albums.
