The Ship of Theseus Paradox, or ‘Triggers Broom’……
Trigger: “This ol’ broom… has had 17 heads and 14 new handles in its time.” Sid: “How the ‘ell can it be the same bloody broom, then?” Trigger: “Well, ‘ere’s a picture of it; what more proof do you need?”
Now in its 10th incarnation, Rapsquillion was formed in 1998 when, as a result of a strange celestial juxtaposition, Keith Thomas and Trevor Hedges met and decided that they would stand more chance of surviving the monthly folk session at The Miner’s Arms, if they presented a united front.
Rapsquillion tries hard to be democratic; we have no leader, and anyone can say what they like at any time (e.g. “I can’t bear that song; let’s try it with bagpipes”). Everyone mucks in – Kay deals with fashion matters, Jen keeps the wine topped up, Dave provides expert critiques, and Trevor handles complaints.
Rapsquillion has also press-ganged some fine musicians to give us a hand on the many occasions when we bite off more than we can chew…..
