One for Jake

The genius of the late Jake Thackray will not be forgotten.  Sadly you can't get to hear him live for obvious reasons, but the next best thing is John Watterson who has been doing the rounds as Fake Thackray for a while now.  John has a new song out, a tribute to the great man himself, which is embedded below.  Enjoy.
