Corpses from Hell
Today's guest is Maxwell Paternoster
who I met at Maurice Seddon's funeral. Maxwell made a motorbike from parts bought from Maurice. He is also a video artist and illustrator, besides being a member of Corpses from Hell
, a sort of postmodern Hell's Angels devoted to unique hand made eccentric motorcycles. The show features recordings of engines at Bonneville salt flats and reminiscences of Maurice Seddon's scrapyard garden.
4th April 2014
Today's show is a continuation of The Seddon Tapes in the aftermath of the funeral of Captain Maurice Seddon
Royal Signals (retired), at Slough crematorium on Monday 24 March. Erika informs Maurice in German that George W. Bush was an alcoholic. Maurice orders red clover and Emu oil. A social worker approaches me at the wake and offers me the ashes of Maurice's sister, Cecilia, discovered in a plastic bag on the mantelpiece of Datchet Cottage.
