Outsider In – Miss Roberts

Its was a hot humid evening, the smell of the two dogs’ breath wafted up from under the desk. Facing me was the lovely Miss Roberts and her faithful slave Cos Chapman.

Miss Roberts defied all opposing forces, patiently answering questions prepared for her from a card index. There was no time to waste. Included in their live performance we heard “Mercury River” not heard before in this country. I think they might have played it in their tour of Germany last month.

Please read her excellent blog
