In Camden a long-standing gig at La Brocca in West End Lane was busted and the licensee threatened with a 20,000 fine because a music student had been seen jamming with the regular duo.

A few months later, in Waterstone's bookshop in Hampstead, an eminent young string quartet was forced to sit in full concert dress with their instruments while a CD was played in lieu of their performance. The Council had intercepted the bookshop's flyers advertising the live music as an accompaniment to a book reading by the former leader of the Amadeus string quartet, Professor Sigmund Nissel. 100 guests, including VIPs, witnessed the non-performance.
