    Although sadly not the Deluxe edition which I've been dithering over for a while now, I was rather amazed to stumble upon a copy of Herr Trunk's mighty new tome for a fiver in the Camden branch of the Sue Ryder shop this morning. It's definitely now gone to a more caring, loving home than before.

    No sorry to disappoint Ian, I just meant ditto as in I'd be interested in seeing your pictures from the night. Too far away for me to be able to make the trip but sounds like a great night was had by all. I've seen your pic on various Charity challenges etc I'd have introduced myself!

    That wasn't me regaling Babycart with stories of my days on 'The Word'!

    It would be wonderful if Amidar was actually Katie Puckrik.

    Sonically arresting listening. Jaw-droppingly good, and as I looked around the room, I could see everyone else had the same reaction. There were a couple of numbers, ones that seemed to slow down and speed up (accompanied by THUNDEROUS drumming), that made me feel like spontaneously applauding. So, so good. The sets prior to his were all top notch selections, but he seemed to sculpt a set and a sound that was in a completely different zone.

    Well worth hauling myself down from Norfolk for that alone. I'd love to know what he played.
    Fairly sure he played this (or something which sounded very similar). I want to know what that electronic track with the synths building in pitch and speed to a terrifying/exhilerating conclusion was. I'm guessing it wasn't the theme to "Button Moon".

    Walked in to the strains of 'Half Forgotten Daydreams', grabbed a quick beer and ran.

    Was expecting a guest at home.

    Bit gutted really.

    Would have liked a few drinks... and the mirror ball.

    What a fantastic night!. Señor Trunk,Fuel, the DJ's, VG+'s ,BGWMC and guests made it a really special event - I felt really privileged to play some records and the book made the long journey home go in a flash. Great to catch up again with you both, Alan and Ian.

    So, Dammers, Godsy, Señor Trunk, FKers, VGPlussers and other shifty types.
    .....add the most excellent 'Godfather of 'Smashing' and 'Sound Gallery' author Martin Green to that list too.

    (Add him to the list of names that is...don't go shoving him into 'shifty types' now... )
