Music to your ears


More enthusiastic TS readers will have been following our quest to hold an accountancy-based festival The Big Quill, featuring accountants in bands.

The idea was kicked off after we read about award-winning bookkeeper Helen Stafford, who also plays bass in all-girl punk pop group Compact Pussycat.

A flood of other budding pop stars/accountants then wrote to TS, fleshing out our lineup.

TS has since heard from Helen, and while festival season is long gone, she suggested that perhaps all the bands could play at an ICAEW dinner as ‘they need livening up’.

Helen has also provided TS with a copy of Compact Pussycat’s latest EP to pass on to one lucky reader. Write in, email or blog, with suggestions for the name of an accountancy-related band and the best one will win the CD.
