Iain Webb 'Shaking the Ether'

Lapwing, a small press based in Belfast, published this in 1995:

'Driving through rain sheaves weather's cloud-handkerchief wipes Napoleon's nose
Vehicle tuts, shakes its head philosophically, longing for the old London routes
Charing Cross, Cricklewood, Muswell Hill, Hornsey Road, Trafalgar Square.'

I like to imagine the 91 singing it.


  1. belatedly catching up on blog - the singing 91 is brilliant!

    1. Why thank you. One of the many books I am never going to actually write would be about the Number 24. The route hasn't changed since the 20s.
