The amount of emotion and personal connection the authors seem to have with their work is mind blowing. Here's one (out of many) that sticks in my mind:

    Spam away! No harm will be done at all and people don't have to look if they don't want to :)

    Big love for this thread. Just to report back many months later - Kate Tempest is incredible, if any of you get a chance to see her then jump on it.

    Just rediscovered this beauty - Harry Baker's Dinosaur Love via my Timehop feed:
