Keep on Rockin' .... Matt


The Song -

Marijuana Mornings,

penned by Shane, is the new single from Lost Ragas to
be lifted from their forthcoming album
‘ Trans Atlantic Highway ’.
It’s a song of longing, of journeying, of a moment, and how sometimes these
things can collide and deliver an epiphany, the clearest of views of something
important yet simple.
it’s also just a nice melody and some cool words and some blokes bashing some

Have a listen .... Matt
