What a very great pity, it would appear the Worlingworth Swan is going to close and this week.

There were a lot good times being had in a tent at the back of the Worlingworth Swan last night. Friendly Misunderstood Rabbits (who seemed to have suddenly grown up since MSM) had a depping drummer but still gave the high energy (11.2 on a Marshall) performance you'd expect from young Turks whilst acknowledging their antecedents with a couple of Hendrix tunes, and even synchronised behind the neck guitar playing ... or maybe they're just big Joe Brown fans.
The O's came on to the theme from the Big Country, or possibly the Magnificent Seven or even Appalachian Spring (we can never sort them out) and two smoke machines. Though this looked great it did slow the rush of people entering the tent as they couldn't see where they were going:) The O's have got even tighter and the micro Eddie Cochran set went particularly well (maybe add Three Steps to Heaven fellas?) and as the evening progressed the struttings (and occasional falling overs) at the front of the stage got more and more charged. Like they say guaranteed entertainment.
... and oh yes, the lady in red did get to hear I Predict a Riot.

Worlingworth Swan des' dinners 24
On a rather grey, blowy day NaTCH collected John B from the Vic for a pleasant toddle through the lanes to where Hugh, recently released from Norwich prison, was waiting for us. The barrels are kept behind the bar at the Swan and one had a rubber tubing and an empty Jack Daniels bottle attached - giving the bar the ambience of an illicit still. Conversation included how sloppy the food is in Norwich Prison and why two out of three lunchers just can't see what's so great about James Brown. AfARs from Spadge (just got his bank statement) and Andy (will rejoin us when his present contract ends in December). (last visit ↓ subsequent lunch previous lunch)

Worlingworth Swan des' dinners 10
Yet another ominous start to a lunch with apologies received from Hugh and Spadge (pressure of work), new chum Mark, and Andy (Worlingworth too far) but NaTCH was readily included in the conversation at the bar of the Worlingworth Swan and, a little late, the attendees were John B, John FH and Malcolm. The Swan is very pleasant: Adnams from the wood at £1.70 a pint, open fire, sensible menu (including liver and bacon) and the food is served hot, AND a water jug on the bar! Conversation included "Are the lyrics to 'Jailhouse Rock' about a homosexual relationship". (first visit subsequent lunch previous lunch)
