1 (Spoken in a voice much too posh for Jacky)
This minimalist drum kit actually duals as a drinks cabinet. I've stocked it up with "Broons" & I think I'll ask the sax player to my right to help me consume it
2 If we ever do a gig at the Elephant together tell them I'll do it as long as there is a roady to carry my gear
3 "Gordon - how could you ever let these guys sit in with the River city?"
