Some of you who know me elsewhere will be aware the Squeeze made a respectable man of me on Friday. Our celebration included this piece of music, during the signings, so, imagine our surprise when we visited Chester today. As we took a short cut through an alley I could hear violin playing, seeing a busker at street level below. Smooth tone? Check. Long hair and gothy? Check. Hell, purple violin and effects pedals aplenty? Check and double bloody check, for yes, it was he. And he seemed please to be told he had soundtracked at least part of our day. We were in 8th heaven! Couldn’t have planned it if we tried.
