http://www.portstreetbeerhouse.co.uk/ sounds pretty good. I've not drank anywhere in Manchester other than Sinclair's, the Star & Garter and the Roadhouse in the past 5 years though.

The Roadhouse has changed in that time.

I don't suppose there's any half decent bands playing tomorrow night, is there? I'm up there for work.

If I lived in/ were within commutable distance from Manchester then I'd probably go to se the Pastels play at the Islington Mill on Friday 16 November.

I can't remember the names of the support bands playing but they were good 'uns too.

Edit: here's the lineup:

THE PASTELS, SEA PINKS, FORMER BULLIES and BY THE SEA

Manchesters! How ace does this look? I've contributed to the 'Dreams without frontiers' 'zine so it's doubly exciting. DIY goodness.

That's pretty comprehensive, but there are some interesting choices for which one track from a band has been used. Good to see Fallover 24 on there. Wish I'd kept my copy of Pessimistic Man, but hey, you can't keep them all. Also good to see the early 90s rap bands on there. And the original Virgin Megastore version of The Freshies single. (Continued on page 124).

Awww, I got very dewy-eyed about this, what with working at Bop Cassettes as a child. Never thought I'd see Wonky Alice getting a cd release :^)))

I remember the time Bop included the title-track of Dub Sex's Time of Life 12" on a free cassette the week before the single itself was released. Not the most astute commercial move. What were the names of the two fellas who used to run Bop? I used to call in when they were based in 23 New Mount Street.

It was never about the money ;^)))))))
Ian and Jerry? (and also Mike was there and sometimes Steve). And if it was a school holiday, me labelling tapes. Bizarrely enough, I got back in touch with Ian through LinkedIn because he's a neighbour of one of my colleagues. Small world and all that...
