I assure you, sir, I am no relation of Mr Allworthy; and if the world, who are incapable of setting a true value on his virtue, should think, in his behaviour to me, he hath dealt hardly by a relation, they do an injustice to the best of men: for I--but I ask your pardon, I shall trouble you with no particulars relating to myself; only as you seemed to think me a relation of Mr Allworthy, I thought proper to set you right in a matter that might draw some censures upon him, which I promise you I would rather lose my life
than give occasion to."

And even with lead singer Harry McVeigh's "Happy Valentine's Day" wishes, nothing can prepare you for the sight of a group of fully-grown men - smiling and beers aloft in hand - hugging emotionally as they scream along to lyrics: 'if you tell me to jump then I'll die.' The song - EST, from first album To Lose My Life - played like clockwork.
