On Christmas Day I got an email from Foxing saying how moved they had been by a blog post I had written about their album ‘The Albatross’ and asking if they could send me something.
The blog post was gonna be a review but I wrote it at 5am while we were going through a difficult time, my son Thurston (who has ASD) had been going through some changes and wasn’t sleeping meaning we were a bit lost and completely sleep deprived. I’ve always turned to music as an escape when times are hard and ‘The Albatross’ was proving to be a great comfort.
Today a parcel arrived from America, so excited to open it and find this. Thurston’s very own Foxing T-shirt!! So cool of them to send it, love it SO much, they’re the greatest!!!!!
