Competition – Panoptica

Ten chapters posted so…

I wanna play a game

Up for grabs. Four books. Two of your own choice from the Leg Iron Books catalogue and two more random choices from me. If you’ve actually bought any of them and are a member of that elite group, let me know so I don’t send duplicates. Plus a Leg Iron Books mug.

Second prize is a Leg Iron Books mug and a random book.

Okay. So here it is.

10538 was not a random character. He was inspired by an old song. To win this, I need the name of the song, the name of the band, the album it first appeared on and the instrument Roy Wood played in its first iteration.

It’s easy if you google it. It’s easier if you own the album.

Did you see the man running through the streets today.

Did you catch his face, was it 10538? Ah!

If this song didn’t chill you, you’re already cold.

  1. Hi leggy,
    The song was “10538 Overture”, the band was of course ELO, the album was
    “The Electric Light Orchestra” recorded in 1971 released January 1972.

    Roy Wood Played the Cello I think it was, on the video for the song.

    On the album track he played…deep breath……Slide Guitar, Recorder, Oboe, Clarinet, Cello, Bassoon, Bass (with Jeff Lynne), Guitar (with Jeff Lynne) and percussion (with Jeff Lynne and Bev Bevan).

    No wonder Roy Wood had such a luxuriant beard, never had a hand free to shave juggling all those instruments 😉

    I owned the album many moons ago and must admit I had to do the google shuffle to help the few remaining brain cells!
