Ian Anderson – Homo Erraticus (Sample Edits)
In advance of the release date, you might like to hear some snippets from the Homo Erraticus album. I have edited these to give you a good idea of the main elements of the material. I can, of course, sing the rest of it to you right now in the shower. Or, you can more safely wait and buy the album. Pre-order online here.
From time to time fans ask whatever happened to Gerald Bostock, the boy who penned the lyrics to the classic Thick as a Brick album. Actually we didn’t know but we just happened to hear from him and he is now even on Facebook and Twitter. Be sure to say hello to the nearly 50 year-old.
Homo Erraticus Lyrics
All the lyrics from Ian Anderson’s new studio album ‘Homo Erraticus’ are now available online in English, German and Italian.LYRICS PAGE

Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue Centre
Blakehill Nature Reserve Leigh, Malmesbury Rd, Cricklade SN6 6RH
If you have a fondness or a passion for wildlife, or simply vague feelings of guilt about the plight of our many UK species of wild fauna, please consider helping with a donation to Oak and Furrows.
We, the human species, have made life and reproduction difficult for our many indigenous animals through our creation of roads, railways and the encroachment of agriculture on the wild spaces of our countryside.
As a result many animals are found injured or lost by members of the public each year. With the help of and redirection by local vets, Oak and Furrows receives, cares for, nurtures and releases back into safer habitats, hundreds of creatures every year. The Centre with its small overworked team of dedicated professionals and volunteers relies on donations and the goodwill of you, the public.

The Polyphony Foundation
I have worked recently with Polyphony to raise funds through my recent concerts to support this valuable and very worthy cause. Polyphony brings together young students of Classical Music from within the very different cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds of Israeli Jews and Arabs.
Showing cooperation and team spirit between communities in this way through both artistic endeavour and cultural mutual respect surely has to be a great example to young and old – whether in Israel or far-flung diasporas.
If you wish to help encourage this non-political, not-for-profit organisation please read all about their work at http://polyphonyfoundation.org
Your help will provide hope for a young generation in allowing them to demonstrate the values of living and working together in peaceful harmony.
Join me, Ian Anderson, in giving your support now to the Polyphony Foundation. A most worthy cause and an important cog in the wheels which grind all-too-slowly towards peace in the Middle East.
