I should have perhaps chosen Souvlaki, or even Just for a Day. I preferred to start from the very beginning, from the debut EP featuring the eponymous track and the two _Avalyn_s, that would have started the bright and maybe too broken career of these Reading guys, now up together once again like in the '90ies.

The scope of their music is so wide, I can barely name a few groups to write in such a consistent way from the start, yet to leave room for change and maturation. Emblematic was their choice to change skin to more intimate Mojave 3, where they could have instead indulged on the working formula.
