Cosying up with Business

Mike Edwards of Jesus Jones was once a fairly close friend. He's as witty as ever in this Guardian article about being asked to play a corporate gig.

The offer was for three shows in under two weeks, any costs we could dream up, accommodation (one person per room) in the same five-star Florida hotel as the conference delegates and a fee that was in multiples of the profit we'd make on the tour.

A "show" was the one song, twice. That would have been seven minutes a night but without the too-wild-for-commerce guitar solo and an abbreviated last chorus I'd call it an even 360 seconds.
