pastiche

back

Someone had asked us, in all innocence, what we did during the day…
"We drive from Penzance to Birmingham," had been the answer…
It could have meant only one of two things.
We were either truckers or musicians!
On this occasion it was Crazy Rhythm doing yet another grueling haul along the M5, from the West Country into the heart of England…Working their way back home, you might say…Although "home" and the Whitby cliffs were still a good way hence…

Enough said…

The journey turned out to be one through time and space, beginning with Django Reinhardt and finishing with Mozart, with a few surprising stopovers en route - much like a whistle-stop tour, zig-zagging the way you never thought it would at the outset…

Eight years on only the pictures have been changed to protect the guilty.
