All posts for the month March, 2021


Joining me in The Attic for this episode is Lee Spreadbury of GU-RU, a lovely lad and mahoosively talented to boot. We talk bobbins, of course, and find time to play a couple of tracks from the new GU-RU EP ‘Zenith’s Privilege’, as well as a tune from the debut album ‘Tales From The Ashram’.



It’s safe to say we love GU-RU here at from The Attic, so check ’em ‘aht, won’t you?
