Popping round to Slaughters

Slaughter and May is doing its damndest to shed its stuffy image. Last week one of Tulkinghorn’s scribes was hauled in to meet partners Christopher (Chrissie Boy) Saul and Andrew (A-Man) Ryde for a top-level, full and frank discussion. The topic: the merits of Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up.

This week the pop theme is brought bang up to date with a concert (Tulkinghorn believes the vernacular is ‘gig’) by The Chemical Brothers. Tulkinghorn, almost incredibly, is attending courtesy of the chaps at Bunhill Row. Whatever next? A lip piercing and tat for Tim Clark, perhaps?
