Yvonne Cleland……Brilliant!

Sarah Harvey…..Never tried playing a shovel…. hey Tony, can you give me shovel lessons? Were you playing ‘Ace of Spades’?

Philip Meston…..Broom lessons will be a must..?

Phil Gill…..They obviously have a time machine. Is that a tuning fork?

Andy Qunta…..LOL, Phil Gill!  We were actually miming! If you look carefully, you’ll see our fingers aren’t even on the right notes!

Terry Pack…..Andy’s playing the great Lindisfarne song, “Fork on the Tine”. Lol’s playing Gram Parsons’s “Cash on the Barrelhead”, Jaff’a’s getting bluesy on Elmore’s “Dust My Broom”. As for Tone, it must be “The Harlem Shovel”. I’ll get my coat!

Mick Mepham…..Phil, it’s obviously a pitchfork ….

Geoff Peckham….”Proof that Factory’s music is a bit wooden and in ruins.” The Daily Post

Andy Qunta…..It’s kind of like they went back in time, you know, like in a Time Machine or something, and that’s all they could find for instruments in those days, or something.
