The RutlesWe can't help thinking that if The Beatles hadn't been called The Beatles but Four Nice Young Men from Liverpool and surrounding villages they may have got more public funding but probably wouldn't have been quite so significant.

ASTONISHER No.32:  Having been secretly sold by Genoa to the French in 1764 Corsica only became openly French in 1768 just one year before Napoleon Bonaparte was born on the island, he retained a Corsican accent all his life ... funny what you learn isn't it in the centenary year of Le Tour.

Alan Lomax  1915-2002ASTONISHER No.31:  Alan Lomax is a giant figure in American folk and blues music having recorded in the field Muddy Waters, Lead Belly, Sonny Terry, Big Bill Broonzy, Woody Guthrie and others.  Astonishingly in 1953 he made an album at the Blaxhall Ship with singers including Cyril Poacher.  Although muso Steph the Pirate hadn't heard of Lomax he correctly intuited that Lomax was in the UK to avoid the House Un-American Activities Committee back in his native USA. ♫

The Arandora StarASTONISHER No.30:  It didn't astonish or even surprise us that actor (he played Miranda's dad in the Christmas special) Tom Conti's full name is Thomas Antonio Conti or that his father Alfonso was interned as a belligerent alien during the second world war.  What does astonish us is Alfonso returned home avoiding the Arandora Star after his wife Mary gave a suitcase containing £2,000 to the highest ranking policeman she could find.

roller derby bout A Fistful of RollersHopefully in 2013 Fram market will stay a place to rant and drink good coffee, Earl Soham beer from its new Debenham brewery continues to bring its own joy, Maverick gigs proceed triumphally, the new Wickham co-op discovers it's not Ikea, roller derby find its way to coastal Suffolk (it's found Bury and the west of the county with a US military connection), the great and good get greater and gooderer and near the coast continues to madden and endear.  Happy New Year!
