King of the gypsys
Since hearing it at our first pier, the music of David Essex has been a constant staple of our tour. Hold me Close is favourite, but Rock On too. There’s a bit of a That’ll Be The Day/Stardust vibe to the trip — there’s been times I’ve felt like running off to work the fairs.
We started with a preconceived idea of what the music of our isle was, but what we’ve really been listening to is: Essex, Fleetwood Mac, glam rock, and hour after our of banging tunes from Funky FM in Essex itself.
