The structure of this one is all over the shop. I am not totally sure where all the bits should be or how many of each there should be. We would have to jam this one out a bit to see what sounded best. It should have brushed drums but apart from that I have no idea. I would have trouble not making this sound exactly like Scattered Black and Whites by Elbow whose finger-picking rhythm it entirely steals.

I watched Dolphins last year playing about just off Irvine Beach and some clever man told me what they were and that there is apparently a Dolphin that lives on her own in the Clyde. It was cool to watch them messing about and splashing and things. Shame I never had my binoculars with me. Shame I do not actually own a pair of binoculars.
