Reasons To Be Cheerful

The first Sonic Vista bench was built as a memorial bench for the musician (and fellow RCA alumnus) Ian Dury (below); the title of one of his best-loved tracks, 'Reasons to be Cheerful', carved into the back rest to announce its intent. It contains on one side an interview with Ian and on the other 10 of his best-known songs.
