Astragal bumped into the arb in the unlikely setting of a London record shop last week. No, not the Architects Registration Board - this arb is a little-known Motown soul outfit, which has an album out entitled The Hard and Soft. That just about sums up the other arb's attitudes to the riba. Tracks include 'Gonna Make You Sweat', 'Bump 'n' Grind', and 'X Marks the Spot'. Appropriate.
