You put me in mind of a slight variation on the theme from "I'm sorry I haven't a clue":

Humphrey Lyttelton: Oh dear, we've just received this note from Samantha to say she's been held up again. She's agreed to meet up with a gentleman friend at the Midland Hotel, where he's laying on a tasting of French white wines. She's hoping there'll be a better selection than last year, when she was disappointed he only had a Semillon. But she thought it would be impolite not to taste it anyway.

Incidentally, Mr Doors, I agree with you - semi-acoustic guitars look the business. Have you played ever played one? I've always fancied having a go, but was under the impression that they were rather prone to feedback.

Ah, that explains it: I remember thinking it was far too clever a joke for it to have been an original at the time.

Still funny though.

I think "I'm sorry I haven't a clue" recycled several variations of the Samantha/ Semillion/ gentlemen friends theme over the years.

indeed i have sir and am in posession of a Gibson ES355, to date i havent cranked it up anywhere near high enough anywhere to get any feedback issues but longer term i aim to do that. In fact i think there is a picture of it somewhere on here. I did a version of Radio Heads High n Dry and put it on here as well where i used it for a bit of noodling, sounds alright as well i seem to remeber, if i say so myself.

Mr Marr has damaged his hand i believe and put his gigs in jeopordy including the one at the Brude
