And now people, we have the Theremin spectacular - Why are the Dogs going crazy?'

Cult band, Clematis Wilt, have sold the thirty-fifth copy of their magnum opus, Boris Broke the Music Box.

Band leaders, Butch Arpeggio and Daniel Pretension, are said to be delighted. The 1973 album was supposed to be a folly, with the week-long album being responsible for the bankruptcy of the band's record label, the long-term health effects of practically every musician involved, and a series of unsolved deaths.

'It must be lockdown,' said Arpeggio, as part of a Zoom conference. 'People are willing to go to the edge of experience.'

'Or maybe,' said Pretension, 'it was a simple mistake, like my eight marriages, before meeting wife number nine.'

A country and western band, Clematis Wilf will also be performing a comedy version of Boris Broke the Music Box on Netflix, next week. If you have no sense of humour, and a week to kill, it will be excellent.
