this song is about Mr Ludowski's deli from when I was a child in Clifton Bristol. He always wore a white apron or lab coat and every Saturday I went with my dad to collect mountains of salami, jars of sauerkraut and other continental delicacies unavailable anywhere else at the time. It features a magnificent violin solo by Nina Trott who very sadly left us all just now - she's very missed....


Mr Ludowski
Is passing the sausages
Over the counter
To customer A
While customer B
Is checking the cheeses
Seeing what pleases
Her palette today

Jars full of condiment
Jars full of sauerkraut
Here in his deli
That’s what it’s all about

Food is community
Food is the sacrament
Worshipful nourishment
For his clientele
Sniffing and tasting
Savouring everything
Mr Ludowski can sell
