A couple of positive developments on the Romanian benefit at the Rockin' Horse. First off, the bar will be open late. (Notice how this is becoming something of a trend at Wilson's Northampton performances? This town is on the move, subtly shapeshifting into the new Barcelona. Oi, New Yorkers - you can smoke in the pubs here. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ooooh-Ho! Ho! Ho! Security!)

Second off, because there is more time, we're adding another band to the bill, namely the very fine young band called A Fat Dog Sound.

So for your fiver you now get 4 top groups, a magisterial DJ and a late bar. Beats Live Aid.

Headstone Says..

Well, the Romanian benefit at the Racehorse passed off well. It was a warm and friendly night out, with an awful lot of faces rallying round to raise money for the Fred Ryan's guerilla hospice-building operation and the Lovelight Romanian Children's Project. There was even a raffle!

(Prizes included quality cigars from Switzerland airport.) All the bands played well, with Good Cop Bad Cop being particularly fantastic, like an enormous truck coming at you at about thirty million miles an hour. Awesome shit. After P-Hex's riotous set, Andy Skank rocked the house until the small hours. The night raised something in the region of 800 for the hospice. We await the second leg, at the Wyeside Centre in Builth Wells, with keen anticipation.

(There is film of this shit, as, indeed, there is of a lot of Wilson performances. We're going to try and get some of this to the site before too long. But this one is particularly scary, coz E-Man is centre stage. Eek! How did that occur?)
