Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 1996 / #8 and #7

MetalCatIt must be true that opposites attract. I live in Africa in the summer swelter and winter mildness of Zululand, South Africa. It’s never snowed here. There’s never been frost. Yet so much of the music I love comes from the frozen north or is about the myths, legends and heroes from the top of Europe.

Maybe I have Viking blood. That is questionable, though, because I get seasick.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
