During his years in the RAF, Max formed Die Lustigen Jager a "German ompah band", for which he arranged all the music. Max formed a living-history brass band, based on the bands of the American Civil War. He has written several books about the history of Leicester, including Musical Leicester, a history of musical life in that city. Wendy Thompson studied piano and violin at the Royal College of Music, London, and then musicology and French Baroque opera at King's College, London. She subsequently moved to publishing, working on the New Grove Dictionary of Music and the New Oxford Companion to Music, and was Editorial Director at Faber Music Limited from 1986-91.
