The story they offer Mrs Munson is that they are a band of musicians in need of a place to practise their church music. But it fast becomes apparent that Dorr's gang - 'hippety-hop' enthusiast Gawain MacSam, demolition 'expert' Garth Pancake, Vietnamese ex-tunnel rat 'The General', and football jock Lump - may not be up to the mission at hand. Moreover, they have all seriously underestimated their upstairs host . . .
