I was breaking free of The Leicester Underground - my musical Homeground - into international collaborations - JJM et al. I wanted to do one last spectacular, for our 16th and quite probably last Album, our farewell performance in 'Leicester Old Grey Live'. It's a mood, it's a temperature, it's a state of affairs, It's a City, it's a Venue, We are Elemental whilst all around us was a stage, we are the players, live, who strutted and fretless and are no more. Wrapping up our heroes into one - the Beatles at the Apple Building - Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. In Legendary homage, from the rooftop of the now disused Leicester Council Buildings, the Old Grey [also of whistle test]. We plugged in and Freaked out. We made so much noise that day we blew two city blocks ! So leaving the city almost in ruins, we shook hands at the crossroads and went our separate ways - the Devil, lamenting the music we'd tricked him out of. This is not the way nice classical boys behave - but then D'juil are not really 'nice' classical boys. Oddly enough when alot of ground had settled we came back with a string of classically focused albums, beginning at our number 17 - 'Elemental String music.'
