JANUARY 2020: A MESSAGE FROM THE CFZ
Everything has gone wrong over the last month, and all of our carefully laid plans came to nothing. We had intended to have a series of bits of seasonal tomfoolery featuring Wally the comedy rhinoceros and some cultural shout-outs to Mr Biffo and all the other jolly nice chaps at Digitizer. There were supposed to be several episodes of On The Track Xtra and – as always – there was supposed to be a jolly episode of On The Track on January 1st.
But this didn’t happen. Why?
Corinna was taken into hospital suddenly, and only a day or two after she was released, Mother died. With the ensuing complications of both of these, I do hope that you will excuse us for not having either the time or the inclination to make silly videos featuring rhinos.
Sad, but true. But here, in an unexpectedly brief little video, I explain what happened, what is going to happen next, and – together with Mike Davis – sings a song which manages to mix the ethos of Stray Cat Strut with the content of an A-Level physics lesson, and still manages to make it about Mother, Paul Whitrow, and all the other friends of the CFZ who have gone before in recent years.
Normal service will be resumed as soon as wassname.
