Too exhausted to wash the dried paint off my hands I unboot and flop in chair . Soon though , Al Tuck's new album comes on and all weariness is transformed , carbonated , and effervesced , with optimism and relaxed reverence . Had to pause after 6 songs to take it in . And write this . Al Tuck's Food For The Moon . Man , do yourself a favour , it's a work of art .
