Thanks for the message, Marc - it’s a great reminder!

And, for a little bit of extra soulfulness and a glimpse outside of what we normally get to see, here’s a short little video that also gives me a sense of hope: https://vimeo.com/150629677

Peace, and happy new year all!

> We may not be perfect, but we're trying our best and it has not been easy as many of you know. Yet, we always actively try and take on what people have said, whatever position, class, race or gender. Unlike some other groups out there, we've stuck to our guns while also adapting, and remaining grounded whilst being fresh and relevant. In fact, we’ve managed to continue a strong dedication to our shared values, humanity and respect for the world we live in, and our artistic contexts, ethics and socially informed intentions, in spite of the everyday pressures of neo-liberalism.
