I turned once to see him receding down Savage Gardens, past a wall of overlapping multicoloured gig posters of different vintages:

RHINOCEROS ARSE-SHAPED TROUSERS
CHARIVARI & MUMPITZ
THE NEFARIOUS PORPOISES
BREECHCLOUT & CAT SHIT BUNTING
RAOUL AND THE KERMADECS
THE BONELESS MAN
RAGGED SCHOOL
THE EMERGENCY LUMINAIRES
