Second careers corner
April 2, 2012 Calverts


Calverts own Arthur in his new role with the Shangri Lads, who played an outstanding debut gig at Canning Town's prestigious Bridgehouse II club. Blending glam, punk and classic pub rythms, Arthur penned six new songs in the preceding weeks, including the instant classic 'Shoulda Woulda Coulda'.

 

We'd like to claim that Arthur's development of a cultural hinterland was due to Calverts encouraging its members to pursue self-realisation, in line with the fifth co-operative priciple, but the truth is he was pouting and posing on stage as a teenager in the early 80s. According to our female camp follower sources, there was rarely a dry seat in the house.
