In an attempt to broaden my horizons, I took up my good friend Fergus invitation to a gig. The gig in question was at the “Grosvenor” pub in the deepest darkest depths of Stockwell. The headline band was Sex Vid, who are a punk band from America currently on a European tour. If skaters think they got it bad on tour they should chat to these guys!
To summaries, it was a good gig, the sets where short which I thought was good. The atmosphere was aggressive, yet friendly. I think the music focus’s and distributes the crowds tensions well. Anyone looking to let off some steam but doesn’t want to go to the gym or kill someone should check out one of these punk gigs. The scene, in it’s structure resembles that of our skating one, it’s close knit, the people are dedicated, it’s mostly DIY, and people looking at it from the outside generally think it’s shit. Most importantly what I think we share with this punk scene as is the case with most scenes is that we think what we do is the shit. It’s that belief that keeps things going and I was suitably impressed with the dedication of the bands, the crowd and the promoters.

FUN is a little zine that you can get hold of, I don’t actually know where. I found it in a pub and at some zine fare. Anyways you should read FUN because it’s really disturbing and impeccably designed. I have some how managed to collect all four issues, and recommend you do the same.

Art’s Bar is a new venue in the deepest darkest part of Camberwell, which just so happens to be the upstairs of the infamous Funky Monkey Bar. My good friend Matt and I have been fortunate enough to DJ there on many occasions, and we where given another shot at it the other night for a private view they had on. Here are some pictures from the event…..

I discovered these tiny zines in my room the other day. Does anyone else remember the supplement zines that came with the early VGs? Does anyone have the ones from VG 3&6? They’re actually really good quality and must have cost a mint to make. If anyone else has any of these zines or information about them please contact me and send some pictures.
