A recent CD purchase came from that posting. Here’s what the buyer had to say.
“Looking forward to hearing the album very much. I heard of your music through a FB group called Pomp Rock where pomp rock fans discuss bands from the pomp rock fraternity down the decades. One of my musical acquaintances Willy V. who is a huge pomp rock fan posts in the group and your band featured last week – he uploads a few tracks on his “aorpompy” YouTube page – so I heard one of your tracks there and really liked what I heard and read about you – it can be really tough to track/find out about stuff so I’m glad he posted your band!
The freshly remastered version of For The Ones We Love is now available on Youtube.
This tune was a collaboration between Mike and Robin. A great thing about the Dayze is that we would try anything that anyone brought in.

Some tasty playing by the Magik boyz.
