Fun Facts:
* Lucky Stone is an intriguing track, with all its different styles and sound effects.
* Its moods encompass jazz, rock, reggae, funk and sea shanty.
* Lucky Stone describes a day at the seaside when George took his young son and new girlfriend to Sidmouth.
* There was a sudden thunderstorm and everyone was soaked.
* The sound of the thunder and the playing children represent those memories.
* The new girlfriend gave George a stone from the beach that day.
* It was a talisman for the duration of their relationship and lived in the dashboard of George’s car.
* Lucky Stone also describes a fortunate and unexpected encounter with a trader on the same day, who had an excess of goods he could impart.
* Lucky Stone started coming together the day Dave and George first played with Adi on drums in Bandspace in October 2000.
* Flicker were also auditioning a possible singer called Vince, and his mate came too.
* They were both sailors in the Royal Navy, on leave.
* Each had a large bottle of vodka and they both got absolutely smashed while Flicker were setting up.
