From the article:
"On 13 March, I saw Elvis Costello at what I still think of as the Hammersmith Odeon. The spectre of the newly announced pandemic hung over the concert, which Costello had expected would be cancelled. It ended with the audience pumped up and cheering, but it felt like the last hurrah for some time, which it was. The 10 days that followed were our “phoney war”. Then came the lockdown.

Our parents and grandparents danced through the Blitz, to Vera Lynn singing with Ambrose and much besides. Yet for us the band does not play on. I fear it won’t strike up for some time."
"Can't you see? My band is up there."
