LOL sh** yeah! ... when we first played the song he used the harpsichord at the start AND shifted to the f*ing alto sax later on. Now it's just the Lurch impersonation. Small mercies. Hopefully another epiphany is on the way ...

Obviously none of us are perfect, even our wunderbar vocalist. One clear area where we could improve is there's too much tendency for the players to play ALL the time through every song. I'd like to see more dropping out at various times to give the band different flavours ... say, a guitar trio or a keys trio ... especially during verses. Then we can all come in for the chorus and there's instant impact and tonal variety.

Having said that, I think our keys boy would play at least twice as many notes as everyone else - he works damn hard for the (lack of) money.
