You have to admire Blind Uncle Harry‘s approach to first world problems. Whilst others are trying to find deft answers to delicate problems, are looking for ways to unify different sides, are looking for ways to understanding opposing arguments and attitudes, he advocates getting stoned. It’s as simple as that. And he isn’t even suggesting it in a constructive way, that dope brings people together. All he is saying is that if you get stoned you can’t be bothered to cause any trouble. It’s sort of anarchy without any of the effort.

And of course, the music is suitably ragged and raucous coming off like a campfire busk or a cosmic jam after a night on the weed, and it is all the more glorious for it.

Bong ballads! Stoner songs! Mary-Jane music! Its the way forward. Or thy would be if anyone could be bothered to get off the couch and open the curtains. Just roll another one and after that, we can take over the world. Maaan!
