Marians and Van der Graaf Generator Reunited

This picture dates from 2005 and features Babs and I and three great Marian friends: Rog, Malc and Dunc, of whom at least two joined me on trips to Farchynys.

The Mawddach bonding must have been powerful because 40 years after we made the trip, I was  able to persuade them to join me at the Royal Festival Hall for the reunion concert of Van der Graaf Generator, a band which  was the Marmite of British 70s rock and not particularly famous for moments of easy musical mindfulness. We had a great night.

And today in 2017, it was wonderful to see the banter and the warmth as strong as ever amongst us.

Floreat!
