While reading about tactics used by a number of teams in Ultra-cycling events there was some mention of WAR music. Strong beat, bagpipes, sonic energy for the rider. I was intrigued as I love bagpipes as befits my Scottish heritage (like you didn't guess from the name Duncan).
So I checked out some of this music. WOW, these guys rock, Albannach is amazing. I will have to order the CD. Damn, now I need an iPod and start managing my music the old fashioned way. I got too used to Pandora, but as I don't think they will be around much longer I need alternatives anyway. One of the ways my life has improved lately has been listening to music again.
