It's not often that Astragal spends Sunday evening at a popular music venue, but he will make an exception for a Grade II-listed building and a good cause: this was a concert in aid of the charity Body & Soul that took place in the cheekily named 'Koko', the one-time Camden Theatre in Mornington Crescent, designed by the prolific theatre architect WGR Sprague. Astragal was busy admiring the Classical proportions of the interior when he noticed that the rather loud rock band on stage appeared to be fronted by an adolescent, apparently called 'Lil Chris', who quite clearly should have been in bed. It is an occupational hazard of growing old (111 years and counting) that pop stars, like policemen, appear to be getting younger by the day. Nonetheless, Astragal could almost be observed tapping a foot.
