about

This time a couple of years back we released Area Code 303, our loveletter to the road to Glastonbury, acid house and Denver, The Mile High City.

Just before setting off to play this year's free love festivals (including Glastonbury), we present FIVE MILE HIKE in the hope of summoning the Third Summer of Love into finally arriving and wrapping us together in an impassioned, blazing embrace just when we all need it most.

As well as being a right summer belter it contains the original CBS news report on the first time Woodstock caught the hearts of the world.

lyrics

What happened at White Lake this weekend may have been 
More than an uncontrolled outpouring of hip young people
Struggling as they did to survive
Twenty mile traffic jams and five mile hikes
Then the intense heat and sudden rain
The thirst and hunger from the shortage of water and food
Just for the opportunity to spend a few days in the country 
Getting stoned on their drugs and grooving on the music

People of all ages are capable of compassion
And while such a spectacle may never happen again
It has recorded the growing proportions of this youthful culture in the mind of adult America
