Mammal’s 21-Year Hit Parade: 2010, #16 – #13

MetalCatAgalloch, possibly Dark Metal Cat’s favourite band, sing about midwinter fires. I’m about to kindle the spirit of a springtime fire. It’s hot, sunny and anything but midwinter here in Zululand.

I’ll be using litchi wood, branches that fell off an ancient tree in the garden. It’s hard and burns for a long time. The last barbecue fire still had glowing embers after 13 hours. That’s even longer than I spend listening to music most days.

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.
