Since our outing to the Artists for Sport Relief exhibition, we have been on the look out for other culturally uplifting events that we can freeload.
Unfortunately, Taxation wasn’t invited to the Mojo awards, which I believe is a great lost opportunity (probably for me to be able to name drop as much as anything else).
Anyway for the hepcats amongst you, this year’s awards were something of a throwback to the sixties and seventies with Neil Diamond winning the best songwriter award, Led Zeppelin – best live act - and Duffy (aka the poor man’s Dusty Springfield) winning song of the year with Mercy (a word that entered my mind several times on last hearing it).
Also in the list – let’s go back, waaay back – were John Fogerty (hey, Creedence!) and John Martyn (and if you haven’t got Solid Air go and get it this lunchtime) amongst others.
While reading the list I suddenly realised that we were missing out on a marvellous opportunity here – both for a wizard evening out and a bit of publicity.
What about the Taxation award for the band or performer who has contributed the most moolah to the Exchequer over the last twelve months?
In fact this could be a timely gong to award, as I see that music sales have not been in such dire straits since 1985, when Dire Straits released Money for Nothing – a cultural high or low in its own right depending on your point of view.
So let’s get that mojo working for Taxation.
