Social Skills - Seaside Tales 2

The 2nd Social Skills seaside concept album. The Emperor of Abyssinia Haile Selasie arrives in Worthing in the 1930s, on the run from Mussolini. He sings a lament for home/decent weather, whilst searching for a legendary fountain of youth his Sussex girlfriend had told him about. Rather usefully for some, there is in fact a fountain of youth in the basement of the Beach Hotel, an establishment occupied by the Squadron Leader, who is ageless but by no means young....the potent mix of the various intoxicants provided by the Abyssinians and the Squadron Leader leave their mark on the underbelly of this seemingly quiet seaside town...

Social Skills is mostly Rupert Latimer. But there are numerous other wonderful people on this album.
