Many years ago, in the misty wastelands of northern England a strange traveller started appearing to local peasants. The simple folk feared the traveller but revered him also, referring to him as 'Rykard' in the stories they told one another by moonlight.
Rykard warned the people that he was the bearer of strange tidings; he told tales of witches and faustian pacts and sang songs of the sea.
Finally, after a time, Rykard cheered up and started going to the beach in the daytime rather than the pre-dawn gloom. He began watching re-runs of Miami Vice and Magnum P.I. which changed his whole outlook on life. After this he became known for providing the soundtrack to the best barbeques in the whole of the northern part of the central bit of England. And beyond!
