Exhibit 2: Crawford Of The Town (2001)

YY: This song is from the album Unconscious Arithmetic by Chrysanthemums. It was supposed to be released on the US Flamingo label in 2001 - but they went out of business before it was pressed up. This is quite a mysterious song which references alot of childhood memories - increasingly common these days. In this case, 1960s Ipswich Town footballing legend Ray Crawford is thrust into the film King Kong. There are also Phantom jets from the American airbases at Woodbridge and Bentwaters, and 'The March Of The Gladiators' - the tune that always used to play over the PA when the teams came out at Portman Road. Camel's Andy Ward played drums; I did everything else. You can listen to an MP3 of the track right here... when I get around to uploading it.
