Can this include scurrilous speculation?

A colleague and I were idly wondering the other day what had happened to local one-hit-wonders EMF. What do they do now?

We decided that most of them had long since spunked away their royalties, sinking back into ordinary blokehood albeit with a bit more property or pension padding than is typically enjoyed by the average joe

One of them, perhaps the lead singer but not necessarily, leveraged it into something else, like that keyboardist fella from d:rream. Our conclusion was he has invested the dosh in something 'up front' like a private members' health spa on the outskirts of Cheltenham, but also set himself up as a tantric sex therapist with a coterie of devoted suburban disciples. The two spheres of interest would overlap, but not enough to invite unwarranted attention
