    I don't remember mentioning a "creepy national provider". Its late in the day but I'm at a loss to understand what you mean.

    I made clear my views in post 1540 of this thread.

    I got thrown off that group because I kept asking them to stop stealing my photos and articles without having the courtesy to credit them so I can't see the chat.

    Sorryy, as a reminder you compared Gll to the sabre people.

    OK, so looks like they are also shortening the 59 - Telford Avenue to Kings Cross - as well (and reducing frequency). Presumably it will then terminate at Waterloo?

    That's the one I was asked to be part of. I do wonder how this is going to work. As I recall, some traders have complained about the noise from DJs in the market in the past, and presumably these new nights are going to be reasonably loud. And if they're doing it in the forecourt, then I can't see why they won't get the same complaints that blighted the Kaff project opposite - even more so now since money-grabbing Jerry has built new yup-hutches next door.

    And then there's the question of even more people being encouraged to come drinking in Brixton with no new toilets being made available. Or, in fact, any late at night.

    I would share some of those concerns but Mr Sharpe is something of a force of nature who should draw in a fairly large crowd being a cult figure and someone with good connections in this part of town and I imagine the music selection will be at once uplifting and thought provoking, as fo the toilet issues I don't associate him with lager swilling hordes by any stretch.

    E2a here is some of his own current musical output, still producing under his own aegis with no big label backing....

    I DJd alongside him this year. He wasn't my kind of chap.

    Like that tune though...

    I'm guessing that would be the Trojan night at the Social ?

    I wouldn't say we didn't get on, I just didn't warm to his personality.

    I think I asked him what kind of set he was playing and he sort of barked 'I'm only playing reggae, it aint hard, I only play A sides, they are all great, it's not rocket science'

    I was a bit like, 'oh ok' and thinking some of them records have great B-sides....

    ...and he had this bloke with him and they were dressed the same, and they stood in front of the decks with their arms crossed while another DJ played.

    I just found him weird (and arrogant)..

    That is odd behaviour. Bit disrespectful too.

    And Cyndi's given you a long reply to your same question on FB!

    She has indeed! I totally respect Cyndi but there's still something about a multi-millionaire socialite getting involved in Brixton that rubs me up the wrong way. I'll pop in and tale a look, but there's little to keep me hanging around Brixton Village these days. Not my scene at all.

    I'm looking forward to DJing in a mobile DJ booth....do you think it has pedals?
     
  29. editor

    editor Taffus Maximus

    I'd pedal it straight out of the fucking Village if it did.
