The August List Trivia

Hightown Crow: The August List wrote a song called Hightown Crow and used it as the title track of its 2013 EP and featured it again on its full album O Hinterland. The opening lyrics are "From his perch above the town, he can see what's goin' down". The August list originally hail from Dorset. On the edge of Dorset are two small villages near to each other named Hightown and Crow. If you drive down to Bournemouth along the A31, near Ringwood you will see a road sign pointing to an exit reading Hightown Crow.
