How could Edinburgh Council even consider letting somebody turn the Cameo Cinema into a "Super Bar"? Read about it here.I don't have time to go off on one here about what I reckon to such a proposal but I'll be lodging my disgust with the relevant parties.

If you're from around here, or have ever visited the place during a visit to Scotland, then you should too.

Also in the capital, STUDIO 24 is still in trouble and I'm not sure how long The Venue will exist in its current mode. Things are not good.

In the early 70's, rock photographer Bob Gruen and his wife Nadya purchased a portable video recorder. In a period of three years they shot over 40 hours of New York Dolls footage. Now for the first time ever this footage is unveiled. This feature length documentary captures the band during early performances in New York at Kenny's Castaways and Max's Kansas City, then follows the Dolls on their tour of the west coast, including footage from the Whisky A Go Go, the Real Don Steele Show, Rodney Bingenheimer's E Club and much more. Intercut with revealing interviews, backstage banter and late night debauchery, this is THE definitive document of the New York Dolls.
