Information Overload


Too much to tell you so here are some very brief alerts with more to follow on many of these things:

  1. My Resident Astrologer and I went to PME in the Guildhall today and put up the first stage of the new ’67/Summer of Love’ exhibition – currently fairly modest, pictures to follow
  2. Mr Greedy wants me to make sure you know he has EMPTIFISH for the release of their new 10″EP on 14th January at the Wedgewood Rooms supported by London freakabilly band Oh!Gunquit and local band the Gloria’s. Poster to follow
  3. Vinyl Tap are playing for the Rocky Aid Charity fund-raiser this Friday at
    The Sunshine Inn with a young vocalist called Chloe Anne
  4. MRA and I also completed the corridor wall with photos of recent bands including Phil’s Class of ’69, Kassassin Street, Tuxedo Junction, Vince, Hat-Trick, Strange, Bemis, the Avalons and the Elevators (many pix pinched from Mr Cooper’s fine site).
  5. Barrance Whitfield was a very fine and very popular act at Basins 30 years ago (!). Mr Greedy asks, would he get you out to see him on a Tuesday night

AND THEN – Just after I posted that lot, this arrived:

Entertainment at the Golden Eagle Southsea for January/February

  1. I did promise some pictures/posters/details to follow but I’m afraid that the Blog is misbehaving so at present, no new posts possible. Sorry

  2. I may have some photos that you could include. When we had our Ad agency: Flash design services we had an Entertainment Agency , for which we took band photos, I’ve got them somewhere and will dig them out!
