'TEXTILE LUNCH' FROM AMAZON.CO.UK
"...arrived in Lowell 11:05 p.m. on Trauways bus
from New York- took approximately 6 hours
through New Haven, all of Conn., then rest-
stop in Worcester (Chas. Olson's birthplace)
and on to Lowell, where we walked first up
Central to Merrimack St., then left towards
City Hall to see Moody Street bridge and
Kerouac's residence at 736 Moody (when he
was in highschool), but it was cold and we
needed a hotel room (at first figured we could
get one on Moody somewhere) so I stopped at
phone booth (first looked up Sampas' bar where
K. hung out in later years, but no listing) and
Marshall suggested looking up hotels, and only
one in downtown Lowell (as advertised) was
the Kenmore, on Bridge St. We looked on map
of streets and walked back up Merrimack to
Prescott, turning (after mistaken turn past
Lowell city auditorium and across scummy
canal on bridge to Bridge St., two blocks down
being the old redbrick Kenmore (like most old
Lowell buildings). Taciturn crewcut skinny
Canuck in bedroom slippers cut in front of us..."

"A cool school vocalist and pianist of considerable ability...impressive sax hero...uncluttered production."
"One of Britain's most original bands, proving yet again that restraint and intensity make a uniquely compelling combination. Ingham's vocals are as cool as ever and Flanagan's saxophone even more piquant."
"Like Zanzibar, it warrants much praise...wit and irony abound."
"Melody, good-humour, warmth and swing in a contemporary setting. An extraordinary suite...These guys have really captured that New York, small group witty song style."
