I thought that went quite well. A reasonable number of people in (although mostly not until eleven or so) and a fair number stayed until the end. Thank you for turning up, those who did, and apologies for not timing it better to those of you who had other engagements last night.

The next two Gigantors are looking like being on the 8th of October and the 3rd of December.

I was slightly baffled by a request sheet left lying from (presumably) the Friday indie disco they have in the Park Room these days. Somebody had asked for Pixies, Weezer, Beastie Boys, Flaming Lips, Super Furry Animals, Breeders, Pulp, Pavement, Blur, The Clash, Idlewild, Rod Stewart and Meatloaf. Can any of you spot a couple of odd things about that list?

Glad to hear it went well. Sorry I didn’t make it. I wasn’t feeling too good. :/

I’ll try and make the next ones.
Had a great night, thanks!

But where will we go for good music between now & October?!?
Good. Thanks for coming.

Errr . . . don't know about the second part. Can I get back to you on it?
May be tempted to come along to the next one, looking at that playlist.
I'd been meaning to play a different one off the compilation (Rock the Casbah, in fact) but got slightly confused by the controls on the new CD player and jumped past the one I was after. That was purely my mistake, of course - I get the impression Lara and Seth make fewer mistakes than I do.
Hm, a decent amount of overlap there with stuff I'd expect to dance to at a KAOS party. Glad it went well!

(And would you like the URL to my husband's remixes of The Hand That Feeds?)
