Meeting No. 11 – Food + Drink

smorgasbord
Turning 45 is a significant day for a vinyl addict like myself, so with the misses away (in Cape Town for a family wedding) I used this auspicious day to get the guys round for a meeting with Food + Drink the remit. A veritable smorgasbord of musical delights was served up, piping hot with plenty of booze to wash it down. Roger couldn’t make it but QUIMS newcomer Mike did a great job with only two days notice. Mikes son goes to the same primary school as my 2 youngest and earlier in the day they came home singing “Agadoo”. Turns out that Black Lace had visited the school to promote their new single (!). It’s okay its for charity (As Alexis Sayle once said “You can do anything for charity! If Hitler had invaded Poland for spina bifida, no one would have mindedĀ”). I felt obliged to teach them The Chicken Song before they went to bed to give some political balance… After that, I was in the mood for some good tunes and by the end of the evening, was Brimful of Asha!
