About The Pleasures Of June
Funny old world. Strange old carry on... The Pleasures of June started out 12000 miles away in Blighty unknown to one another and some decades later came together to exercise good use of their given earthly reason for being. They might be really good one day. They might even draw the attention of someone influential. Hell, right now they don't really bother from one week to the next about the shallow trappings of seeking the wrong kind of attention. Come find them and enjoy the flowers while they last.
