B-side “Timeline” is Joe’s spotlight on today’s social media-obsessed society delivered in the style of his musical hero Mose Allison, the legendary Mississippi born/New York-based jazz/blues musician and singer whose wry and intelligent lyrics married to amazing original music shone a light on society and the world from the mid-1950s until his death in 2015. Mose was a huge influence one of Tatton’s favourite musicians.
