You may remember the rock and roll act The Jimi Maxwell Experience - formed in celebration of Scope Ketchum chief executive James Maxwell’s 40th birthday - being mentioned here last year.

Last week saw the return of the combo at the crypt in St Martins in the

Fields Church. They even got 150 people to part with pounds 15 pounds

each for an evening of food, drink and music in aid of St Martins in the

Fields Social Care Unit for Homeless People.



The only disappointment for sticks man Maxwell was that the band

preferred to play with a drum machine until the final four numbers by

which time he informs me that ’everyone was too drunk to notice’.



When Maxwell hit the stage he drummed along to a rendition of classic

Beatles number Get Back and the Undertones classic ode to masturbation

Teenage Kicks.



Harry McFarland, director in graphic design, on guitar and Dave

Robinson, account director, on bass, tell me that they chose songs with

the same rhythm to make Maxwell sound competent. Ouch.
