i should be at distant planet also i think. last one was great music-wise!

i don't really go out that much any more - largely because there seems to be far fewer things to go out to. part of that is me being out of the loop - and another part is that i don't really have any urge to go to squat parties any more, which used to be a part of my going out.

but i think there's also fewer venues to put on the sort of smaller rave nights I'd be going to, in London. and maybe less interest too, given that a lot of the potential crowd will just go to a big free party rather than a small club night. and even Bangface - which has always been my favourite, the one thing i pretty much never miss - is now only a couple of times a year pretty much, and isn't what it used to be.

kinda comes at the right time in a way given that i am now past the days of raving every weekend. and is also partly the fault of my unfashionable tastes :D but it'd be nice to have a few more things to go to!

Nowadays once maybe twice a year max to a club or rave and usually just drink and do a few lines, generally i run my own night Flashback had a great night in January, back in the day started off once a week as the years went on that increased to about 3/4 times a week,madness.:)

Hardly go out at all but my little town has a cool 150 capacity venue which gets some big names Saw Four Tet play a 4 Hour set last night (although i crumbled after 3 hours) and he did it 100% on vinyl. Mighty impressed in this day and age.
