It has come to my attention that Subo covers Wild Horses on her first album. This was a song written by Mick 'n' Keef when the latter was inspired by the great Gram Parsons. It is, I note, 334th in the Rolling Stone list of greatest songs of all time, a list which mysteriously excludes Schubert's An die Musik. Wild Horses is a fine country song with exceptional lyrics. I text Nige with the Subo news. 'I wish I didn't know that,' he replies.
