    And see the enormous irony of it all as well, hopefully.

    I wonder what form that might take.

    At the LJ masterplan consultation on Saturday heard comments about Pop. The Council got funding from GLA to do a work based "Pop" at the Farm. "Learning from the mistakes of Pop" was one.

    The sooner Pop finishes the better.

    I've got a nasty feeling that whatever permanent structure replaces Pop will be no more devoted to the needs of the local community ... especially if it's to be set in a newly-spiffed-up chainstore-safe yup-approved Station Road. Believe it or not days may come when people look back on Pop as the lesser evil.

    Oh, I'm sure whatever follows will be at least as shit as Pop, but Pop will certainly have played its part in 'softening up' the area for something 'nice' to follow.

    Pop is just the lube ahead of the buttfucking....

    And the rest of Station Road is smothered in the stuff too. Brixton's going to be fucking dull in a few years' time.

    Not sure they are equipped with the care and attention required to get the sufficient amount of pleasure from the experience.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    That's because you're a moronic bandwagon-jumper.

    Flufftastic, extra-lite PR piece here. Peckham, you have been warned.

    Sooooooooooooo wacky! Totes quirkballs. It's like being at school again!

    'positive growth' is an interesting term.

    'Each individual will shit across someone and get the opportunity to draw and build a conversation with each other for a limited amount of time'

    Sounds delightful.

    Great news burger fans! The other Side are bringing their "dirty done proper fried chicken" to Pop Brixton from Saturday 24th September.

    So I heard that a local band wanted to put on a show at Pop on a Saturday night. They were quoted £270 for a sound engineer, £50 PA hire with - bizarrely - more for each mic, plus other assorted costs. Yep. That sounds like a community minded venue. Not a rip off at all.

    Thats a piss take. And really galling when you consider how many decent live venues in and around Brixton have closed or stopped doing music.

    Like the Canterbury upon which that pointless Pop Fields sports pub sits.

    I see that Beautiful Christian Books has now taken the unit formerly known as Carl Turner's Pop Brixton Town Centre Regeneration Management Office in Station Road.

    So where has the CTPBTCRMO moved to then?
