A fold in an eyelid brushed with fear...

A man walking past a cafe from which the Kraftwerk hit 'The Model' was blaring at full volume, found himself unwittingly swaying in the quirky dancing style that was prevalent back in the New Romantic days of the early 1980s.

Moys Kenwood, then 19, was in Cala Mayor, Majorca, with his mates back in 1982, and passed an establishment which was playing the music of the day very loudly from speakers placed just inside the premises.

The song that was then playing was the chart-topping future-sounding synthpop hit from the quirky German synthesizer pioneers, Kraftwerk.

Kenwood immediately struck up a pose associated with the futuristic sound, and began to sway to the right then left, changing direction in a jerky fashion, palms of the hands raised and facing each other, knees bending then straightening, and arms moving ryhthmically in an angular mode.

Customers in the cafe looked up briefly from their beverages to see what all the fuss was about, then resumed slurping, as the music boomed on.

When the song finished and 'Sound Of The Crowd' by the Human League came on, he walked off down the street, even though he fancied the dark-haired bird.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
