The Streets - what a name. Alan Kelly on bass and Dick Laing on drums. We didn't quite take the world of rock music by storm, more a kind of fine drizzle. Some of the songs I wrote were OK, but they soon got dropped in order to play safe, please the punters, get the gigs. We turned into a covers band.
We used to play the BBC bar at the Open University campus (Dick and
Alan both worked for the BBC), Woughton Campus on Sundays and The Vaults
in Stony Stratford, as well as anything else that turned up, pubs, weddings.

a small frog in a big pond
chasing after a newt
you got the pride, I got the glory
let's make this a true love story
As nervous as a kitten
I thought I knew all of the angles
