ROB SEZ: If you don't know the band's music, think of the Lilac Time as what might've happened to Nick Drake's music if he'd survived his melancholia, recruited a couple of bandmates, and found some contentment. This is rustic, folk-based, England-centric, classy pop music. The Lilac Time is still making music as a trio (above photo), and currently working on a new studio album. A strange-but-true fact about main dude Stephen "Tin Tin" Duffy: he was a founding member of Duran Duran. MASSIVE THANKS to John (R.I.P.) for recording & to Don for sharing. This Lilac Time two-fer is courtesy of the old ASH blog (may it rest in musical peace!).
