DO YOU remember The Mighty Boosh? It was a bit of a surreal sitcom that started with a promise that you could join them on a journey through space and time.
This week, our Wokingham Loves Music playlist does just that, thanks to Flutatious.
Their new song Sound of Jura is from their new album, Through Space and Time, and will be a pefect sound for summer.
Why not have a listen? The playlist is FREE on Spotify. Make sure you have a listen at bit.ly/wokinghamlovesmusic and search for our group on Facebook to join in the music chat.
