    By the way the director of the radio program ” Cucamonga”, Zjakki Willems, organised – way back in the old days- a concert called Purple Cucumber. It was about Belgian classic & pock musicians performing the music of FZ ( string quartet adaptation of Inca Roads included). I was there when it happened in Antwerp – De Singel. Great & dynamic. Those people must have been rehearsing for months.

    Ah, so I reckon any one of you wouldn’t mind sending me a copy? I listened about halfway through, then went to bed because, well, I was dead tired…
