An album of Rainstick Music, I must get one for all of the lads

Ivor Biggenthwaite, a Londoner, even though his comedy Yorkshire name suggests otherwise has yet to sell a single copy of his new album - Rainstick Seranade.

'It is a mystery to me' said the 37-year-old 'but I have put some real classics on here, a bit of Satie, a bit of Bach, some Beethoven, even an old favourite from Aaron Copland, and yet no bites'.

'I was following what Nicola Benedetti was doing, but it seems if you are a talented and successful musician, playing a proper instrument, who doesn't look like an ill bag of spanners, people buy your albums.'

We would have bought a copy of Rainstick Seranade, but then Ivor would have thought he was a successful musician.

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