The Stuffed Mullet:

Jam Session review of the July 23rd schemozzle

With all the exuberance of a stuffed mullet, we leapt, joyfully but modestly, into the opening guitar extravaganza, all of us in awe at the manual dexterity, creativity and polish... err, that was setting the gear up, the guitars came later.

Not to be outdone, the rest of the jammers proceeded to cook their usual racket - an opening set by the Good Captain, in fine form, with Mr Curtis on stick bass, then keys; before the six singers took over - of whom I will invidiously pick Jane Little's set as a standout, closely followed by Annie, who can deliver a song stylishly, on a good day: which this, evidently, was...

Newcomers;: well, in a manner, Ed Adamson on trumpet pretty smooth, then Stuart played sax, probably for the first time - I can remember him at the Leinster, the Junk and The Post saying he was gunna, but he never quite did. A good start: come again!.

The Regulars: Drummers Martin and Mark kept the slap and rattle department ticking over nicely, Keith and Jeff dominated the saxophone division, Jamie returned on bass, clearly having saved up lots of notes to play; and the rest of us chipped in and had a good time.

The evening ended with some assured vocals from Gilbert: Good to see ya Mr G , welcome back! Even Oz at the Bar seemed happy - possibly even more so when we packed up and left.

Next week, the Fifth Scottish Regiment massed Bagpipers will be playing, hopefully a long way away. Or not, as the case may be. Hortense may or may not be there, Madge from Altona almost certainly not, and Ms Dora Trout will handle the correspondence with her customary dexterity. The stuffed mullet will be optional.
