In junior school I was drawn to the percussion section of the school orchestra. Of course I was, banging, hitting, generally making a racket was something at which I was rather good. So I spent a few years messing around with triangles, cymbals, tambourines etc. although they wouldn’t let me loose on drums because I was considered somewhat “undisciplined”.
Since the age of 15 I have transferred to the “concussion” section in the pit. I began by fracturing my skull and have been working on it ever since. Following the last crash when I wrote off my ex La-Poste van “Custard” I have had all the signs of head injury for two months.

Forgive me, friends, colleagues and publishers. I’m trying to come back xxxxxxxxxxx
