Singing in John Lewis, Norwich, Norfolk - 13th April 2019

Isobel's choir - Invidia Voices - is doing one of those "nobody knows about it really" Flash Mob sort of things at John Lewis in Norwich, so we wander up to town for that, followed by a roam around St. Benedict's Street and a visit to Pizza Express. As it's Record Store day, Nosher sneaks out whilst the boys are eating ice cream to nip up the road to Sound Clash records, only to discover that the actual Sleaford Mods are in there doing a signing. Their latest vinyl "Eton Alive" has run out, but Nosher manages to score a signed copy of the earlier Austerity Dogs album.

It's nice to see that some records shops are surviving in an age of throw-away streaming
