What a night! Live music from The Applewhites followed by Turismo.
Then dancing into the wee small hours to blinding tunes with a packed dance floor.
Apologies to The Applewhites, I was at the Adelphi whilst you were on.
I am reliably informed by Sweet Assassin, that you rocked.
Turismo looked great on stage and although the sound wasn't quite right (some technical problems)
they played a lively Turismo set with all their best known tracks.
After the live stuff, the DJ kept the heightened atmosphere well and truly alive.
He played everything from The Libertines to White Stripes and Muse (this DJ actually
plays your requests, cheers!) as well as Chilli Peppers, Doves, Prodigy and up
and coming bands like The Zutons and Franz Ferdinand.
The music was f**king brilliant. Quite honestly, it was one of the best night club
experiences of my life.
Full marks to Sweet 'n' Sour for kicking off what could be the start of a new era
in The Welly's long and turbulent history.
Drinks were reasonably priced - under £2 for a double spirit mixer and bottled lagers at £2.50.
Girls could freshen up in the ladies with a full range of potions and lotions and
pretty scents for under £1.
It's nice to think the same kind of care and attention was afforded to the guys
also to make the night just that little bit better.
Oh, just remembered, the alarm was set off by the smoke machine which went nuts.
This minor incident was soon brought under control and didn't deter from the fun.
Some guy told me he'd lost his brother but I now know he was very drunk and hadn't
lost his brother at all!
The night was blessed by the presence of the Landaus and various members of Sweet Assassin
and The Last People on Earth. Message to all you musician types from Patrick Tobin:
He has just opened a rehearsal space with 16 track analogue tape recording for all you
old skool rockers to use.
Thanks to Steven Brough, photographer from Middlesborough for making the night extra special.
He was ducking and diving, snapping anubody who stayed still long enough.

Jesse Malin - York Fibbers 10/07/04 By Nick Quantrill
I have to admit it, I'm biased. Jesse Malin rules and I won't have a
word said against him.
Like most people I discovered Jesse's music through his association with

Blind Frog Ernie at The Cavern - Saturday 3rd July By Andy Steele
Blind Frog Ernie, in their current guise, were supposed to make their Cavern
debut some months ago but had to cancel at the last minute due to illness.
Tonight it was clear from the off that they were determined to banish the memory of that
missed opportunity and give the place a proper rocking, East-coast style.

The Mingers, Bosseye, The 30 Second Dead, Diverse Unit @ Adelphi Tue 13th July 2004 By Dick Spring
Bloody hell! It's about time! A proper punk band that had me rolling back the years.
I am, of course talking about Diverse Unit, a bunch of snot nosed punks all around the
age of 15 or so, with a passion and something to say.
The songs were there as well, and for a first gig it showed a talent and tightness of a
