Billets Doux

You grow up in the suburbs

You picture a life for yourself, right?

A life of danger,

late nights in smokey jazz clubs,

beautiful women everywhere.

Django Reinhardt with the

Hot Club in Paris 1939.

You're listening to "Night Duty"

at St. Joseph's Hospital.

Only then, you do grow up

and you're not living that life.

You're poor

you teach in the school

during the day

and of course you like it,

though you can barely find

time to play the bloody trumpet

Ricky...Ricky.

while you hope against hope,

to reach those kids who remind you of you.

So you end up watching, not doing

waiting for something to really live for.

Now the closest I come to a

smokey jazz club

is the DJ booth at

this broken down hospital.

The only place in this town

my kind of records are welcome.

I work the night shift

alone and listen

to Django and Coltrane play the pain.

This next one's for all you

romantics out there.

Get well soon!

I'm Alan Furnace,

and you're listening to "Night Duty".

My name is B., B. Monkey,

they call me that because

I can get into anything.

These were Frank's rules,

we all worked for him.

The first thing you do is torch the car,

then you lose the gun.

After it was home to Paul's house.

We were a family,una famiglia.

Bruno and I did the jobs

and Paul looked after us, when he wasn't

selling drugs to rock stars

and putting the profits up his nose.

Now..

They Can't Take That Away From Me

Scotland Yard says it has as yet no

further leads on the series of robberies

which has taken place over the past few

months in leading West End jewelers.

They are still appealing

for any information

from the general public.

The number to call is:

0171 387

But the highs grew shorter.

And the emptiness took over.

I knew I had to grow up

I decided

it was my last time.

Love Anybody You Want

I needed to leave it all behind.

It was a long time

coming anyway.

Beneath the action we were all a bit

fucking frayed around the edges.

I felt my past dissolving

and that felt good.

Bravo!

Bruno now you're 18 uh?

Well you were a bit long in

the tooth for my taste but

congratulations anyway.

- Come on, drink up

it's my round.

Can I have three

more beers please?

Three beers!

That'll be six pounds please.

Thank you....very much!

There you go!

I feel so bloody drunk already.

Cheers!

Cheers,

to Bruno!

So what were you celebrating last night?

The destruction of your last brain cell?

Oh fuck you, you hag!

Now you little shit

you can get the fuck out

of my house, right?

You bastard Paul you can't just kick

him out like that!

Oh?

Where is he supposed to go then?

Wherever he chooses Bea.

It's not as tragic as all that

change can be a glorious thing.

Besides I'm sick of you.

Stealing my silver and

fucking vomiting on my piano.

Bruno!

I've really had enough of this!

Andy?

Yes mate?

The birthday party over there,

do they come in here a lot?

Till I find a way to bar them, yeah

Bar them? Why?

Because they're criminals Alan.

Bruno!

Will you get your fucking

feet off of my car!

This is exactly why we have

to live without him.

Shit!

So he doesn't know whether he wants

to kill me or kiss me do you lover?

Fuck you Paul!

Just remember one thing, I took you

off the street you fucking gutter...

You fucking wally!

What's that?

What more rubbish? They don't seem

to teach you nothing at this place.

Come On! I thought I told

you to wait outside.

Bad day?

Oh it's Ricky Sturge again.

Oh no.

I asked him to sharpen the

pencils, they all want

to sharpen the pencils.

It's a great honor.
