Many, many years ago I wrote a short story that was a good idea but a bad short story. And for many, many years Alex insisted I shouldn’t discard the idea. Then out of the blue, he introduced me to a brilliant young rock guitarist from Hastings, Adam Nash.
Who would have thought a Caribbean storyteller and an English Rock musician could find common ground?
After hearing the story outline, Adam laid down some tracks and Alex added some EWI magic. The music inspired a reworking of the story and here it is, THE SHADOWS KNOW. An urban, Caribbean Rock folktale. A cautionary tale for the London streeet scene.
Oh, and we just had to add some visuals.
