record at the famous 100 Club. Tatlerís endorsement of them as one of the ten best bands in Britain to book for oneís wedding promised to be a breakthrough and, indeed, duly led to an enquiry. Such is the power of publicity.

In 2006 he teamed up with the noted misanthrope Mike Willox, famous (not very) for being someoneís son, to produce his second album, of groovy jazz standards in a quintet format named MGQ. These are in the

cupboard under the stairs.

Since then, the musical aggregation Custard has emerged to general disinterest amongst the general public. The highlights have been the annual big band concerts at the 100 Club where original arrangements by Felix Rigg illuminate the attributes of self-confessed singers, the Custard Tarts. It should be mentioned that many of Trumpetís under-achievements have been played out alongside the watchful glaze (he wears thick specs and drinks a lot) of the talented Mr. Rigg, his oft-time sidekick

who can read music.

To bring circumstances full circle the self-styled Lord Mayfair, landlord of the Grosvenor Arms, W1, has installed Trumpetís four piece jazz trio at his pub/folly where they are currently booked to perform on the second Wednesday of every month ad infinitum or until a better offer comes along. Probably ad infinitum.
