I just loved this description of our resident Official Court Music Reviewer,
Nick the Bookman's latest review:
DJ Jimbrowski @ Open Space:
"Using in some places, foul language, inaccuracies with people's
names/songs and straying off topic here n' there - Nick has nevertheless
written a sparkling review of 'Hinterland', a house and techno party put on
by yours truly exactly 1 month today. Enjoy...."
All of these ... are some of the reasons why many
people love Nick's reviews! I love publishing them, only lightly editing
them for grammar, spelling and his atrocious punctuation! ;~}
P.S. Next gig coming up on Monday,
Jungle Bun Down 2 @ Open Space (halfway up to the windturbine, but
well worth the little stroll! There's even a new, cute, little bridge
over to Cable Road!)
"Featuring EXACTLY the same DJ cast from last time. (If it works...
just rinse it!)
Um, so anyway - it IS up a hill, on a far away island etc etc.. but
