Just good friends
Seven monkeys are reunited
I may have mentioned a band I used to play in - Shave the Monkey". The band broke up in 2003 and since then we have not got together, all of us... until now. All seven of us (including Steve who left the band in 2000 and was replaced by Fran) got together round Guido's house for a meal and, it has to be said, a jolly good nostlagia trip.
We had an excellent meal after which Nicole (Guido's wife, and Ellen, Kevin's wife - both non-members) made a discreet exit. We talked of the good times, of silly things that had happened, remembering peculiar gigs and funny people we had met.
It was a relaxed and pleasant afternoon, and just for the hell of it we took some pictures afterwards to show all seven of us had been together, at the same time!
Now before anyone jumps to the conclusion that this means Shave are reforming, it was just lunch! We are just good friends!
