Place Settings
Avoiding social disaster is clearly uppermost in the mind of Jeremy Nicholas’s dinner party hostess in Place Settings, a song that is also striking for the strain it imposes on the singer’s memory. It is among the hundred and fifty-odd songs Nicholas has written for the BBC’s Radio 4 programme ‘Stop the Week’, every one of them an astonishing example of speed-writing, written and composed from scratch between Thursday evening and Friday lunch-time.

from notes by Roger Vignoles 1988
