Hugh of course meant to say "UNusual"

Actually, no, I meant unreasonable! I don't think I could stand up in a H&S hearing and justify testing that kind of equipment that infrequently.

Good God! Are there special H&S HEARINGS? And a special H&S police?

The legal requirement, surely, is to maintain equipment safely. Not to follow any particular "guidelines" regarding PAT testing and certification. This would imply checking hired or touring equipment after every outing (though not necessarily getting out the PAT machine and writing a label).

You don't have to write songs. The world doesn't want you to write songs. It would probably prefer it if you didn't. So write songs if you want to. Otherwise, dont. Go fishing instead.
