introducing the lunch hour skiffle band

My friend Andy Claydon and some of his coworkers recently formed a band. They call themselves the Lunch Hour Skiffle Band. One hour a month, during lunch, they lock themselves in an office and make music. There are a few traditional instruments, but, for the most part, they play office equipment, like recycling bins and staplers. I think it’s brilliant and beautiful. (If you follow that link, you can hear them covering “Beat on the Brat”, and “Yellow Submarine.” Rumor has it that a third song might be recorded and uploaded by late tomorrow afternoon.)

    It’s like the MPT, but more often!
    I love it.
