Happy New Year!

A message from Kelv.....


Well, here we are at the onset of a New Year, recollections of the passing 2017 still overshadowed by the loss of Adi, yet buoyed by the impetus gained (of which he remains a significant influence) to carry into 2018. We are further embellished by the addition of Amy (Adi's daughter), thus restoring the eponymous badge back to 'full measure'.

We have much to 'get stuck into' in the coming months - a catalogue of ideas, songs etc which stem from our soundly forged roots ('in the can' collaborations, a good deal of 'em with Mr B, plus new material).

So, from Andy, Ory & LeVynk - with added input from Amy - watch this space as the a2RK bus gathers momentum throughout 2018 - more releases plus some 'live" stuff.

Never deny those early doors.

RIP Adi Barrett (1956 - 2017)


...a few words from Kelv, echoed by us all.....

“Live On You Will, Live On You Do

In those you met and those you knew”

As the events of Friday 18th August 2017 proved to us all (members of a2RK and gathered family, friends and musos), as we bade farewell to Adi (don’t call me Adrian) Barrett, what an immense figure is now removed from our midst.

“So much to lament, so much to celebrate

No more to partake, no less to relate”    

           a2RK …. always  


Heartfelt thanks to Paul G. for the superlatively professional, yet personal, sensitive manner in which he handled the Affairs of A Truly Fitting Day.
