Subject:        August Follies: A call for musicians
 
In a moment of Folly brought on by the August heat, a friend of mine and I are
forming a Shakespeare Heavy Metal band, to be known as
 
"Nick Bottom and the Rude Mechanicals".
 
We are hoping to replace the long-breathed "Hey Nonny Nonnies" at the Malone
Society Dance next year. Our repertoire will include our signature tune
"Sleepin' with the Faerie Queene", along with such staples as "The Bee SUCKS!"
(a hard-hitting number about the commercialization of the modern vacation
industry), "Fancy Bread" (a blues about ill-gotten gains), "Little, Tiny Boy"
(a gut-ripper about child exploitation), "Duck Dame" (about a woman with
unusual erotic appetites) and "No more Ladies" (a woeful ballad).
 
If you have any interest in joining this group, either as musician or
songwriter, please reply by private email. Snug and I will reply pronto.
 
Knavishly,
Tom
