Meeting No. 20 – Set the controls for the heart of the sun

June 2012 has been a wet miserable month but that didn’t dampen this sun related evening at Johns relocated living space – goodbye ultra modern city centre Leeds flat, hello beautiful old house in rural Keighley. John and Si had concentrated on tunes about the Sun whilst I made a compilation of tunes related to our solar system……couldn’t find a track for ‘Uranus’ but then found out it’s colour is described as ‘Electric Blue’ so went with that. I thought I’d done well…….until I saw Jez’s effort – a complete booklet with selected lyrics from each song designed to take you on a stellar journey – “It’s loosely based on Henry V”……! There was even an interval built in. A great night – watching Balotelli stick 2 past the Germans, playing an array of musical instruments, eating cheese and chewing the fat whist playing a tonne of great tunes on an awesome stereo system…..what’s not to like…
