Everything needs a backing track and this tune is top on my list. Fitting for quite a few reasons.

  • It’s from Supergrass’ album Road to Rouen, which is pretty similar to our title of Road to Riga
  • Edd/Ian and I played the album almost non-stop on our first long distance trip to Slovenia. the first track is genius by the way, I’m listening to it as I type.
  • The album cover is pretty cool too and very fitting, that could well be a Rover 214 flashing by
  • The track St Petersburg as well as being superb is appropriate because St Petersburg is one of our primary places to visit. The song also really sets the scene nicely, for the build up over the next few months. “in a few months we’ll be out of here, and not a day to soon”.
  • Supergrass are from Oxford too

What more can I say but enjoy
