Marcus Bonfanti – High Fives 2013 (Motorway Services)

4

This is what happens when you ask a musician to give you a Top Five of “anything music-related”.  We’ve seen Marcus twice this year and we know all about his dry sense of humour and, as a touring musician, he’s obviously an expert in this field.  Here’s Marcus Bonfanti’s High Five of motorway service stations.

1) Total Station Belmos (Belgium) – handmade sandwiches when you’re so near Calais you’ve resigned yourself to the overpriced P&O beige food.

2) Tebay Westmoreland Farm Shop (M6) – once you’ve stopped laughing at the pie called “beef growler” you realise they sell homemade pies.Tebay

3) Medway (M2) – The inclusion of a Greggs is perfect as if you’re approaching Dover from the north it’s been an early morning, from the South it’s been a late night. Either way you all need a sausage roll.Medway

4) Moto Donington Park (M1) – there’s a girl who works nights there and if you turn up at about 2am she’ll sell you all the doughnuts for a quid.Donington Park

5) Newport Pagnell (M1) – Fruit machine always seems to pay out when our tour manager plays it which means we all get a coffee bought for us.Newport Pagnell
