After the reading, Edwyn and his band – edit
At the proceeding book signing, the opportunity to clear up a criminal matter was too good to miss.
FET: My friend was burgled at university. All her CDs were stolen with the exception of Gorgeous George and The Best Of Orange Juice. Can you account for your whereabouts on February 28, 1995?
GM: Oh, I can remember what we were doing that night. Hang on.
EC: I’ve not got much of a memory now.
GM: I’ve got it. We were coming back from Australia. Do you remember, Edwyn? It couldn’t have been us burgling.
EC: Perhaps the burglar already had the Edwyn Collins and Orange Juice CDs. Or just had good taste in music!
FET: Thanks, that narrows down my possible suspects. It was probably James Kirk.
EC: Yes, you should ask him where he was!
GM: You should definitely ask James Kirk. Not to be trusted…
If the producers of police procedural drama Cold Case would like to option this story, I would be willing to listen to your offers. The soundtrack, at least, would be amazing.
