Punk Rock Nursing Home





Every year, on the anniversary of the death of hated 1980s prime minister Margaret Thatcher, the elderly residents of State Retirement Home SY-379 hold a festival of celebration. Balloons and bunting go up, raucous punk music is played, memories are relived by those who still have all their faculties, and a good time is had by all.

With the thirtieth anniversary of Thatcher’s death coming up in just a few weeks, Colin Baxter decides to make this year’s Thatcher Day something to be remembered. He contacts octogenarian punk band Sick Bastard and books them to play live at the retirement home, promising to pay them in free beer.

There’s just one problem: how to get the band, their equipment, and the beer, past the Gestapo retirement home manager who lives upstairs?

It doesn't, by any chance, sit across the road from The Fletcher Memorial Home for Incurable Tyrants and Kings* - does it? (That was the first thought that went through my head when I saw the title and cover combined.

* For anyone that doesn't get the reference, that's from Pink Floyd's "The Final Cut" album.

Sounds like an interesting read. I couldn't get the link to work. It might just be my junk computer, or user error.
