    Episode 12: Wargasm by Daevid Allen

    Our takes: The Inspiration: “Wargasm” by Daevid Allen By Frosty1973 Each episode we take someone else’s music as the starting point for writing our own music.  This time we’ve chosen Wargasm by the wonderful Daevid Allen.

    Episode Three: The Lark Ascending By Ralph Vaughan Williams

    Our Takes The Inspiration by Frosty1973 The Parsnip and I were walking to Manchester Picadilly Station one day when we hit on the idea of doing a classical piece for the next Frozen Veg episode.  This might seem tad ambitious given that this is only Episode 3 and neither of us has any particular expertise […]
