More comedy gold

I've enjoyed Spicks and Specks ever since it first appeared on ABC TV last year, but this year has added Alan Brough's blog, a very entertaining set of (usually weekly) musings on music-related topics. Last week Alan covered the unfair assumption that rock music culture is based around drugs, and this week he gives a glimpse into his own music playing history. The final paragraph goes:
We never did a gig but did record one EP. The engineer and producer of this bit of musical history was one of our teachers Brother Kevin. He gave us a bit of advice that I’ll never forget: ‘Stop now, you are just awful’.
We were and we did.
Well said Brother Kev.
Definitely worth reading.
