Another schottisch, another tune from a signalbox… This one emerged almost fully formed while trying to recall how to play Cliff Stapleton’s excellent tune The Man In The Brown Hat. This link will take you Blowzabella’s version on their album “Dance”.
The title comes from the other thing on my mind that day – my new job, working for a software house in Daventry, Northamptonshire.
