Living in the Past

If you come here often, you must have seen how I prefer the individual to the chain, the quirky to the bland. It's cities like London that allow places like this - All Flutes Plus to exist. That's what they sell: flutes. I confess to knowing little about flutes but, at a guess, this little shop must be the best place in the UK, perhaps the world, for a flute. As Ian Anderson would have said - That's living in the past. If you feel the need there are a few Jethro Tull clips here and here.

Oooh wasn't he Woodstock and all that? What a great photo this is, Ham. You've captured the beauty and classic nature of them.

The only Tull I really know is "Too Old to Rock'n'Roll, Too young to die" which is an excellent album.

Nice FLutes!

Nice flutes!
I love Jethro Tull. Aqualung is one of my favourite songs... although it was a bit before me time, my dad passed it on to me...
Your blog made me go and put on one of his old records.

The first connection I made when I saw this photo was to the Giger work "Birth Machine" outside his museum in Gruyères. They're not really similar, except for the cold metal look, but that's what I thought of. Link to my post about the museum:
