    I like everything except the Marfa who is too old by about 2 generations and looks like a Remuera "lady-who-lunches" who has driven her SUV to the wrong set.

    I'm enjoying seeing my little veal chop in a non-heroic role. He makes quite a nasty spoiled rapy boy.

    He's rather yummy isn't he. I'm always going to think of him as a little veal chop now.

    I hope you enjoy that version of Acide. Very well executed. Also, nice to know about Presto downloads for NZ, as I have never tried that (have just been buying physical medium). I presume it would also work for New Holland across the Tasman.

    I'm sure it would. What is nice is that I also got a full PDF of the leaflet, so I don't feel hard-done-by.

    Presto has some extended samples for each track, Kermes has amazing razor sharp ornament that she uses fluidly with great imagiantion and agility, she is so good here..........
