What is it with Magners all of a sudden? People are fucking suckers for advertising.

I'm sure board members from bristol will know what happened to their record shops after Fopp arrived.
True - there was a really good one just opposite that closed straight after Fopp moved in. I got War Ina Babylon by Max Romeo on chunky vinyl there. There's still another going strong on Park Street though (I'm useless with shop names). And there's still Plastic Wax on Gloucester Road, where I bought my prized copy of 'John Kettley Is A Weatherman' by A Tribe Of Toffs.

There are three Fopps in Bristol now.

What is going to happen to the girl who worked at Fopp?

You know, when I picked up the courage to go in there I never saw her again. She was lovely though.

Oh, and I've been to Brighton once - I nearly choked to death on a herring rollmop on one of the piers. No-one bothered to help me, they just stood round staring, like it was some kind of fucking performance art piece or something. So just like London, then - chock-full of absolute cunts (I'm sure you're the exception, HF).

Imperial was opposite and closed a couple of years ago - a tragedy as it was a great shop, and Replay further up from Fopp on Park Street, closed earlier this year i had heard.
or is it still open ?
There was also, Disc-n-Tape on Glos Road - now gone, and Eat To The Beat, also gone.

I think along with the rise in rents that happened, Fopp have helped decimate the indies in Bristol.

The Magners thing: I'm sure in a couple of years time people will be thinking wtf was I doing drinking cider (essentially an adolescents drink) with ice??

"Slagg" ad campaign would be a freat new vehicle for Danny Dyer - "Slagg - for when it goes right off!!"

And I would have said London By The Sea was a stunningly accurate description of the place.
I played the Sunday night show at the Brighton Komedia a couple of months ago, and the compere asked at the top of the night where the 300-odd people in the crowd were from. They were overwhelmingly from London.

In case it's of interest, I spent my first year in a house on the edge of Moulsecombe and my latter two in a flat just off Preston Drove quite near London Road station.

A colleague of mine who was from London told me that Brighton was more dangerous because all the likely lads in London assumed that there would be someone harder than them around, whereas they reckoned they'd be king of the walk in Brighton.

Anywhere that'll have me. Basically looking to rent somewhere fairly central, so I can get to and from the railway station without too much hassle. I'll start looking in earnest in about a month from now.

it does get a bit hairy round the Real Eating Company on Saturday night if they've run out of artisan goats cheese (or something)
