Our comment:

A riff on a Last Ward, boozy, bittersweet and aromatic.

History:

Created in 2017 by Tom Sherring at Piano Kensington, London, United Kingdom. Name: 'Loose' as in playing loosely with the original ingredients, 'Talk' as in a synonym for word. Echoes the WW2 propaganda slogan (riske nature of the activity of gossip,) and of the pop band Gossip, and the alternative identity gender politics that they stand/stood for."
