Caws (2020)

As the Coronavirus rages, and with good weather on the way, the mayor of Calamityville insists picnics and sunbathing must go ahead, right in time for the VE celebrations. Says Mayor Johnson, “On days like these, my fiancée and I like nothing better than licking the inside of a tube carriage while draped in a Union Jack flag and singing It’s A Long Way to Tipperary, because that’s how we saw off the Boche and Covid don’t like it up ’em. God save the King and hip hip hooray.”

A longer version of this review will be published in this month’s print edition of Byline Times.

The Odeon of Death, AKA Ali Catterall, can be found on Twitter at @OdeonofDeath.
