    if you've never seen the Spatial AKA thing live before, you're in for a treat.

    They are very good fun, pre-, during and post-gig.

    Thoroughly music'd up, I'm off to find some appropriate clobber now.

    i thought bits of the article were interesting, bits very silly, journalisitcally sloppy (like the word journalistically).

    in the end though, i feel it was a good use of those 5 minutes of my life.

    getting Sun Ra into the grauniad is always worthwhile. i see Dammers snuck him in today.

    Not sure that Sun Ra is really an unsung musical hero - but maybe that's just me!
