Earache - 2020 January

for those with their finger on the pulse

New Year's Greetings.
The turn of the year bought welcome news for those with poor sight for it is the year of 2020. What a universal blessing that will be.
Harking back to 2019 we would just like to point out that the CD produced at the Eel's Foot in Eastbridge in aid of the Minsmere bird reserve is now available from the pub for the princely sum of £8. (Or ask us and we will be happy to procure one for you.)
earache 2020 01 p1Produced and directed by Doc Cox with typical Yorkshire generosity. Who could have believed that the county of deep pockets and short arms was capable of such a polished production?
Through the wonders of modern technology we have managed to reproduce the front and back covers of the CD. Led by Doc's number “The Foot of the Eel” (work it out yourselves), the company drives it along like a 4-6-2, up to the mark, with 14 on, thundering up Shap summit. Buy now to avoid disappointment, £8 for one or the special price of five for £40.
