    The ludicrously named faux music-connected The Edge is on its way.

    I meant to ask you: how come you stopped playing at Market House?

    I just didn't enjoy it as much. I was a bit burnt out with life, and had lost patience with the crowds that were turning up, and the constant requests for records I don't play, or wanna play, so I jacked it in. Brixton's changing, I am not, and I feel no desire to adapt to meet the shallow needs of the Friday nite incomers.

    It's the new place owned by a local resident (and other shop owner).

    Are they wankers or just making use of the wall space to push forward a political message?

    What was on that wall before the 'Nuclear Dawn' message?

    Surely walls can be used as canvases for people to express their views and with time, the messages change and new more current opinions need a space/ wall to be displayed on.

    'Nuclear Dawn' has served it's purpose, but surely we need to move on and let others express their views on what should really be a wall for the people.

    I think Nuclear Dawn should be preserved but the Heywood artwork went on top of a blank canvas that had been painted over repeatedly by wanker tagger dickheads who would rather bravely deface an important cultural icon than, for example, spray their stupid name on the blank canvas of a multi millionaire property developer's hoardings 2 metres away.

    I doubt very much if the people who are trying to restore Nuclear Dawn were upset by this artwork: in fact, I'm pretty sure it was done by the same artist who has committed to restore it.

    We have been open since late November. We only sell products from small independent producers and have over 20 suppliers based within a 3 mile radius - so doing our best to support the local economy. I personally have lived in Brixton for 15 years.

    Good for you! I'm glad it's doing well. If I'd been sent something when you opened I could have posted something on Buzz if you'd wanted, but it looks like you're doing fine now anyway. :thumbs:

    Oh and sorry, but I can't bear the name (I assume it's a trendy form of 'Guzzle', yes?)!

    Unfortunately domain names involving Guzzle were not available and it is very difficult to find anything that has not already been taken. i wanted to use something that stood for the healthy appreciation of good food, made by people who really care about what they do. Best I could come up with at the time. There may have been several beers involved!

    I was in a band once with a name so awful that we had to spell it out every time, even though it was only six letters long. How shit a name was Kau Tau?!

    Oh and please keep me posted if you need publicity on Buzz.
