Lean and hungry
Back in the grim days of a blighted Liverpool circa 1980 penny pinching musos such as myself spent much of the time not gigging or rehearsing, sheltering in Brians café.Brian Mcaffrey an ex boxer of some national fame never seemed to mind the numerous weirdos that lingered for hours over a single cup of tea as he knew that when flush the said weirdos (me too) would splash out on one of his huge plates of sausage egg chips and beans thus making both parties happy. Nowadays the area is full of trendy bars along with coffee and Panini shops, not places conducive to the plotting and planning of world musical domination.....I just liked the chips and beans!
