Storyline

Whilst Martin and Mandy are out Matthew goes upstairs to complain about the noise made by rehearsing band Pro-Active but, on learning that they are in need of a singer, is happy to join them. He sees himself as a Rock God and considers raising the tenants' rents for the privilege of knowing him. However when the band is called upon to perform a gig at very short notice the mere act of having to leave the flat increases his agoraphobic terror and he merely moans and whimpers whilst on stage. Nonetheless rock magazine The Dog's Bollocks believes this to be a perfect interpretation of post-Modernist pain and praises his non-performance. Written by don @ minifie-1
