"Clutching at straws. The Guardian says blogs can solve the problems of the world so here goes: Can anybody get me a Pisastro Chromcord D string for a Double Bass for saturday morning?"
They'd have to be reasonably near Canterbury, of course. Annoyingly, I've got loads of Pisastro Chromcord D string Double Bass strings, but I won't be able to post them in time. Tch.
PP then added:
"I will be in london tomorrow and am willing to do tricks for strings."
Worth considering, I'd say. A PP in the hand is worth- (transmission ends).
UPDATE - PP says"
"I am now a proud owner of a Pisatro Flexocor D string- not a Chromcor to be
found in central london. I also bought a new case which looks like a giant sleeping bag.
Then I had a nose bleed- with blood down my shirt and with something that
looked like my bed in my arms I looked like a street person- just the right
tone to be set at work..."
And here's another music video involving small woodland creatures. And Sigur Ros. Awww.
NB. I've just remembered how, when once I was round at at PP's flat with a friend who had drunk slightly too much. She suddenly murmered 'Oooh, I think I'm going to have to be sick', at which point PP got up, walked to the hallway way, turned his double bass round so that the hole bit faced the wall, then walked back to the front room and resumed the conversation. Most impressive.
