"The gentry of old in their feudal tradition are sitting duck targets for live ammunition" ... from 'Blood' off the Astronauts' 1983 album 'Its All Done By Mirrors'. I think they were being ironic...
I've not heard this lovely album in years. I'm listening to it now at Kill Your Pet Puppy! Pop it in the search engine and have a listen. Particularly to 'Typical English Day' which is as tender and beautiful as anything I've ever heard and is actually relevent to this thread! Strangely.
