It wasn't till all the chickens had fled in fear that we stopped our performance.
We began squabbling over who had been the most out of tune. By the time our parents arrived the band had broken up, we'd all sworn never to sing together again and were sulking.
Later that evening my dad decided to share a bit of news he's heard on the radio with us.
He was of course making fun of us. But at the time we were so convinced of our own brilliance that we spent years thinking we'd have been famous if only the band had stayed together.
