With this fine musical instrument, I would eventually play and fill in with my melodious riffs, boldly venturing into that musical genre known as, The Blues.

With my incredibly portable, compact, and most tiny organ, I would furtively play my music behind my mother’s back and of course, without her knowledge.

These highly illicit, underground musical endeavours would materialize in a basement, in the esteemed company of our prestigious blues band, of dubious and precarious merits, known to the world by the suggestive and highly evocative name of Unruly ‘till our death.
