    Until the Traffic Stops

    "4am strings and monster choruses" - The Times.  There was a lot of press for this one.  The title track was Radcliffe and Maconie's single of the week, I was in session on 6 Music with Tom Robinson with the Elysian string quartet, My Word What a Mess ended up being playlisted on Radio 2 for many weeks.  Scotland the Brave even got some breakfast slot plays from Chris Evans.
