Old Friends & Exhausted Enemies
Seven Centuries of Poetry from Chaucer to Auden

Old Friends & Exhausted Enemies refers to the many poets whose work Luke has used produce some of the new songs on this latest album. Words, phrases and imagery from Chaucer, Jonson, Burns, Dryden, Browning and Auden to name but a few are all woven into new songs which as a result, reference some of our most beautiful verse in the English language. Luke slowly worked his way through a large anthology collecting anything that sparked his own imagination to pool and shape his own work. In some instances just a single word or as with Geoffrey Chaucer’s Prologue to The Canterbury Tales, setting complete verses to music.
