Elephant Stone - The Stone Roses #ElephantsForever

Visca els elefants! Visca la Republica Independent de Catalunya!
...
For those readers not up-to-date with the ins and outs of the Spanish Royal Family, the elderly King of Spain (who, by the way, accidentally shot and killed his brother when they were young) is still a keen hunter. So keen that he spends thousands of (our) Euros on Safari Hunting Trips de Africa to kill those pesty elephants. Anyway, on his latest adventure he has fallen and broken his hip.

  2. Wow! Great, thanks! Had vaguely heard of the group, but never listened to them before - and I must say this track is wonderful.
    So wonderful that it gets a quicky (wordless) posting on the blog tomorrow - especially as the "King and the Elephant" story is still going strong :)
