The new The Wirebender show with an interview and tracks is an excursion into the warm world of Junior Dan, best explained in Simon Wade’s words:
“Wise up rise up from your slumber, it is time to make a stand,
Wise up rise up from your slumber, are we building bridges to nowhere?
This world is in confusion too many living with delusions, not knowing which way to turn.
We make such rash decision are we building bridges to nowhere?
Is this all a big mistake?
No money can fix times that’s past or wipe away tears that’s been shed
no way to fix yesterday or change the thing’s that’s been done
Wise up rise up from your slumber, it is time to make a stand,
Wise up rise up from your slumber, are we building bridges to nowhere?”
-“Wise up Rise up” from the LP Visions, Hi Try records

’72 Studio One classic ‘Easy Take It Easy.'”
