Dunno if anyone remembers the Sixties/Indie club Magic Bus that became Scooter in the mid 90's but the man responsible for playing the Seeds and Manfred Mann at such nights, now cloaks himself under the name of DJ Astroboy and guests at MONDO a GO-GO in Edinburgh this Saturday 3rd December. In the Loft at The Venue, Calton Road. 11pm-3am.

Due to Hogmanay the next Mondo will not be until Jan 28th, so its your last chance to catch some GO-GO action of 2005. Admission discounts are available for Xmas nights out with a group of 10 or more, contact the_gogo@hotmail.com

Had a lot of communication today about the latest raft of R&R Hall Of Fame inductees, it was even on the Drivetime news. All part of the “corporate hospitality” vibe. Professional form-fillers flexing their committee, er, muscle. It’s maybe good for the acts in question to have a bit of a piss-up but it has less than fack-all to do with rock’n’roll as I understand that condition. The same way as "the best R&B album in the world ever" doesn’t have a morsel of r & bleedin’ b on it. The HOF is like the Queen’s birthday honours list and “awards” in general, these things seldom, if ever, go to deserving parties. If they do, then it’s by accident rather than design. “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated” – part 517b.
