    (Extensive sleevenotes in album download and article)

    Around three years ago, I started a radio/podcast show: The Bovine Life Support System - a kind of mixtape-meets-mischief enterprise. The first one was with Resonance FM & New Media Scotland. Some of the shows were collaborations with labels such as Highpoint Lowlife and Benbecula Records (R.I.P.) – but in the main, they ended up being spoken diaries of my life augmented by a nice playlist. The main motivation in doing the shows was to spend more time with my ever- expanding music collection, and to fall in love with some great musicians and composers and search for ‘community.’

    On December the 1st 2010, I took a week away from my home in Ayr in order to catch up with work for my PhD and also to do some gentle walking as I had been in a car crash a month or so earlier and walking was part of my physiotherapy. It was also when the UK was utterly covered in snow and ice. But my nearest island bolt-hole, Arran, was pretty much safe and crossable. And crucially, cheap to get to as a foot passenger.

    This recording is the result of that week.
