There's An Old Piano

Early in the decade that taste forgot, Fat Franny Duncan is on top of the world. He is the undoubted King of the Ayrshire Mobile Disco scene, controlling and ruling the competition with an iron fist. From birthdays to barn dances, Franny is the man to call. He has even played 'My Boy Lollipop' at a funeral and got away with it. But the future is uncertain. A new partnership is coming and is threatening to destroy the big man’s Empire...

Lizzie King just wants to celebrate her 18th birthday by escaping from her congested home life for one night, and the monotony of her new job sticking labels on whisky bottles at Johnnie Walker; a situation made far worse by being constantly reminded by tv and newspapers, that in Thatcher’s Britain, she’s actually one of the lucky ones…

Bobby Cassidy and Joey Miller have been best mates since primary school. Joey is an idealist; Bobby just wants to get laid and avoid following his brother Gary to the Falklands. A partnership in their new mobile disco venture seems like the best way for Bobby to do both at the same time.

Based on the book, The Last Days Of Disco, There’s An Old Piano…is the story of the night dreams were born under the sparkly glow of a glitter ball.
