In Brock's words, "Here are a collection of photographs and drawings of and by Andrew set to the music of A Thousand Wonders, the song we recorded just days before he died."
"After many years working apart, Andrew and I finally got back into the studio to record this song. We spent the day experimenting, laughing, wondering where all the time had gone. We sat in the garden dreaming back to tours of the states, Europe and Asia, my wedding, his, Kenny-- and by the end of the day he had put his mark on this as he does everything he touches . . . touched. He died this week and we're all sick with grief. The plans we made to start working together more regularly just fond wisps floating off into space."
"But he's captured here, one last time. If not the last recording he ever made, certainly one of the last. He was my friend, mentor and much more that defies any label. I'm grateful to have had this last chance to make a joyful noise."
"Which makes me the last of the Smogtones."
