Being the 18th of July 2008

Awoken from your slumbers by a rude and hairy skymatelot grunting and gesticulating wildly, you pull on your Ruritainian Dirigible Captain's uniform and helmet to investigate the hullabaloo on the bridge...
A glance around the dial covered cockpit confirms your worst fears, the airship is going down...
Pausing momentarily to step aside as the first mate, his body alight, jumps screaming through the window to certain death many hundreds of feet below...
Stiffening your upper lip you brace yourself against the binnacle, make peace with your strange gods and await impact...
It is early evening when you regain consciousness. Your helmet, once burnished to a gleam, lies smoke-blackened and dented at your side, several spokes of your wheelchair are bent and and one of the buttons is missing from your jacket... Still, things could be worse... You could have missed this evening's City Folk Club...

So, put a bob in the jukebox and dig these crazy tunes:

Mary & The Gallant Soldier: Syliva

(+ Several examples of the Devil's music played by the ensemble...)

Till we meet again...

The '?' was Reynardine. Was it so bad as to be unmemorable?! Another thing, among several, who is Sylive? (That reminds me of a song!) Shall I continue with this critique?
