Oh Good Lord. What follows is a stag do, of sorts… a celebration of the impending marriage of Andy and Trudi Jarvis, who – rather than go for the traditional stag and hen celebrations – opted to hire out the Pussy Boutique (no joke), a strip club beneath the Fat Cat in Stoke-on-Trent (Choke-on-Stench) in order to put on a concert featuring a load of their mates, some healthily cracked music and a rather splendid disco. I tagged along as designated driver on the proviso that I could bring my video camera and field recorder to document the performances.
The day itself has been written about in some detail on Rob Hayler’s excellent Radio Free Midwich blog. All I can add to his account is my video which, while being nowhere near as much fun as the day itself, goes at least some way towards capturing this brilliantly odd occasion.
So, without further ado, here’s to Andy and Trudi. I’m sorry it took so long to post these clips, I wish you all the best, and I hope you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
