Most years I go and help out homeless people’s samba band Cardboard Citizens to play in the Thames Festival Parade. Some of them are good drummers but have lost the plot due to various reasons, generally alcoholism, drug addiction or mental health problems. Or all three. Most of the drummers however are beginners, and need a bit of support.
Anyway it’s provided a great deal of entertainment on Facebook with L having to justify herself to all her right-on mates. Sometimes activists can be sooo humourless. Boris looks a bit grin and bear it though, doesn’t he?
On this march the surdo section started out quite ropey but by the second half they’d got it, they were in the groove. Doing a march like this is like doing a 4 hour practice session. You make so much progress.
