Ok, what is Henry the 8th famous for apart from the marrying wives then executing them thing and wrongly being credited with writing 'Greensleeves'? Yes, he was a fat bastard, and I can say that as I too am the porky side of having unwed parents myself. Henry was partial to a banquet or three, and I found this jolly description of the first course involved on www.the-tudors.org.uk) "The first course consisted of a civet of hare, a quarter of stag which had been a night in salt, a stuffed chicken, and a loin of veal. The two last dishes were covered with a German sauce, with gilt sugar-plums, and pomegranate seeds.... At each end was an enormous pie, surmounted with smaller pies, which formed a crown. Each contained a whole roe-deer, a gosling, three capons, six chickens, ten pigeons, one young rabbit. To serve as seasoning or stuffing, a minced loin of veal, two pounds of fat, and twenty-six hard-boiled eggs, covered with saffron and flavoured with cloves... (As for the second course) There was a roe-deer, a pig, a sturgeon cooked in parsley and vinegar, and covered with powdered ginger; a kid, two goslings, twelve chickens, as many pigeons, six young rabbits, two herons, a leveret, a fat capon stuffed, four chickens covered with yolks of eggs and sprinkled with powder de Duc (spice), a wild boar." Believe me, that was not the end of it, another four courses were to follow, and I am not sure that I could put together the same board of fayre but this mix represents my attempt to put together a menu just as fullblown, complex and over elaborate as a typical Tudor menu! Fullblown? Complex? Over elaborate? It has to be a Prog Rock menu!

Track 1 from Larks Toungue In Aspic
Length: 00:13:37
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Before carving into the livestock feast, let's start off with a tiny yet satisfying starter. Anything Robert Fripp/Crimson has done has pulled me in to some extent. This is no exception.

Track 3 from Animals
Length: 00:11:30
Year: 1977
Track Description:
The Floyd serve their pigs inflated, floating above Battersea Power Station in London rather than serving them in a pie complete with a bunch of other animals. I think that this avant garde course is in keeping with our feast. Musically, less interesting to me than earlier Floyd works, but the best track on the animals album I think.

Track 9 from Mr. Beast
Length: 00:05:13
Year: 2006
Track Description:
No evidence that Henry ever did dine in Belgium, but if he did, he may have chosen horse from the menu. Musically, this is one of my favorite Mogwai tracks, and there is a bloody long list of tracks I like!

Track 18 from Joe's Garage
Length: 00:09:05
Year: 1979
Track Description:
Some fruit would serve us well at this point, and Frank's serving suggestion is greatly appreciated. Musically, a beautiful instrumental, with rare feeling in the playing, although it maybe goes three or four minutes further than it should have done. Still wonderful though.

Track 7 from Heavy Horses
Length: 00:03:27
Year: 0000
Track Description:
In these more enlightened times there should be something light on the menu for those who don't want to get as big as Henry, so one brown mouse might just do the trick. Especially if it was light brown. This comes from the time when Tull were concentrating on music stemming from rural and folk orientated themes. I tried to ignore Tull at one time in my life, but I do keep coming back to them time and time again!

Track 5 from Warrior On The edge Of Time
Length: 00:08:18
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Yes, time for another fruit course, after all these rodents, cattle, etc. (I think they would be cooked, possibly inside of each other, etc, but even so!) Music wise, Hawkwind have been a guilty pleasure of mine since I was a spotty fourteen year old. They weree hard to take seriously when you sat down and thought about it, but after a few minutes of them in concert, or even just on the turntable, and disbelief was suspended for a while at least.

Track Description:
Some musical stew seems a nice way to finish the savory courses. Traffic were known for 'getting it together in the country' back in the day. Bet this included lots of homestyle country cooking. I'm off to throw up now before starting all over again. Bon Appetit!
