Part 7- Things start to take shape.

Things start to take shape.
James and Marcel became fast friends.
Both were in awe of each others talent.
They would practice singing together at every opportunity with James sometimes writing new things on the spot to challenge the mighty voice of Marcel.

David would lie under the open window in the garden outside the music room with other brothers.
While the other members of the order where delighting in the God given gifts of the voices emanating from the room David was calculating box office receipts and album sales.
David had managed to find an ancient reel-to-reel recording device in some of the donated goods that the townspeople often left in the cloister of the Abbey.
David prepared the recording device and used old reels of tape he found in the box with it.

Unknown to David it was a 4 track recording device. So while he taped the brothers singing – playing along side it were the contents of the original recording. Recordings of unknown French punk rock bands.
David in his haste quickly grabbed the tapes and gave them to one of the truck drivers who knew someone who could transfer the music onto CD.
What happened next was a comedy of errors that must have been directed by divine intervention..
The truck driver gave the tape to his son who knew a guy who worked in a commercial recording studio. The truck driver’s son said to the recording engineer if he transferred it to CD there was 4 dozen bottles of St Benedicts beer in it for him.
While the recording engineer transferred the tape with all tracks playing in unison, the head of Shidot Records came into the room: Mr Sincerity .

Mr Sincerity’s only claim to fame was the fact he discovered Plastic Bertrand back in 1977 and had been living off that glory ever since. He longed for another great discovery and when he heard the chants of Marcel and James mixed accidentally with the punk music his brain registered one sound only

Part 6- St Benedict's Brewery - David

One way David stopped from going insane from boredom in the Abbey was to work at the Abbey Brewery.
Here he discovered three things.
1. He had a good job that was more like a hobby.
2. He had beer to drink
3. HE could take advantage of the Abbey and the Brother’s good nature and make an alternative living running his own distribution network.
David loved the Brewery.

The St Benedict’s Brewery was instrumental in keeping a usually impatient David at the Abbey

Meanwhile while he spread rumours of a million Euro contract for David.
Only days into his search Edward disappeared.

Part 4 - David's discovery

Marcel had left to do other chores when James came to and asked for the other Brothers not to tell anyone – but he did ask if they could they tell him where he could find the boy with the magic voice.
Outside the window David’s ears were transferring sounds to his brain
They sounded like this: Ka –Ching!
