One of my friends just contacted me, I'd not heard from him in about 7 years, so it was neat to have some vague contact. Anyway, I'd kept some kind of track of him through another friend - who'd pointed me to an EP that he'd released. The EP's called 'Stay at home', the music is electronica/ambient. This release and the later ones (which I've not listened too yet) are available for free. Anyway, I wrote a chunk of the book late at night, and I ended up doing a fair amount of the final sections whilst listening to Redpoint. So, thanks Ian!
