Why the hell do I do these things, it's not to get my skirt pulled up by some drunken goat
called Mark that's for sure.
If this had been in an office and not a nightclub then I would have you up for sexual
harassment make no mistake. Did I see you go around lifting up other girls' apparel?
No I don't f***ing think so. Where was my hero, where was my Gladiator to rescue me?
I am a girl okay. Asides from all this I'm still a human being whatever you may think
of me, and I have feelings and emotions like any other person on this god-forsaken planet.
The bouncers were so lacking in coinage they, couldn't even afford their own cigarettes,
perhaps they need to be paid more.
This said, tonight was a better night than the last time I graced Silhouette: with my presence.
I rushed like a mad thing to get there after spending all day at my P.C. and was greeted
by the sound of The Landaus: playing to an enthusiastic crowd. Stood beside a guitarist
from the Dreamers and a drummer from Park and Ride: I listened to the catchy
What you cryin for.
With the best jangly riffs you ever heard, The Landaus: looked like they were having fun.
The stage had been enlarged to good effect giving them the chance to move and create some magic.
I watched them play out the end of their set, surprisingly the applause was sporadic and lacked enthusiasm.
This Hull crowd really are spoilt.
I first saw The Landaus: last year and they blew me away especially Danny's guitar solos.
I can still picture him writhing the neck and producing glorious sounds.
They still have that same magic a year or so later. Long live The Landaus: that's all I will say.
As for the rest of the night it was to prove a mixture of the sublime and the surreal.
Immediately after The Landaus: the Sleaze Queens: kicked in and stamped their authority on the night.
Listening to them they joined records seamlessly and picked a few toe tapping tunes along the way.
With a little positivity and support these girls could start creating a buzz in this here city.
They are good, and given a free rein I am sure they could have the crowds whooping like Red Indians.
They do need to talk to their audience and say, look people right now we are your goddesses
and you better listen to what we have to play.
We are Sleaze! Kat's here to please you, Mel's ready to tease you, so get your funky
little selves on the dance floor and show us what ya got.
The second band on tonight was The Glitterati:, I hadn't heard of them but one Darren Rogers
assured me they were real rock n roll.
They had opening music, Frank Sinatra possibly or may be Tony Curtis I don't know.
Ready to give these guys a chance I knelt down whilst taking pictures by a P.A. :up close and personal.
They delivered a hard and fast diet of blistering guitar licks and screamingly good songs that lifted the crowd.
The front man has enough poses in his repertoire to keep any paparazzi happy.
He talked to the audience making them feel part of the show, and they responded in turn.
With his red shoes firmly on the floor, and the mic stand spun energetically to the ceiling
he controlled the crowd with expertise.

Music Reviews - Friday 4th March 05 - The Ga*Ga*s at Asylum By Andy Dykes, Photo Gallery By Darren Rogers
Its rock-a-rama at Asylum: tonight. Three bands, one bill, all about the rock.
First up, Disarm:.
Their cover of New Order's Blue Monday is superb, harking back to Marilyn Manson
and Dope's covers of new romantic greats.
Disarm:'s own material is intricate

Monday 28th February - Black Orchid, Diverse Unit, Second To Last, The Regicides at the Ringside By Harry Slater
It's cold tonight, not as cold as it was this morning, but cold enough to complain about.
The garish decoration of The Ringside makes a welcome change from the browns and greys of a city thawing out.
The outside door, as per usual, scares the crap out of me as it slams shut

The Black Velvets at Brighton Audio - 18th February 05 By Steve Rudd, Photo Gallery by Darren Rogers - Sweet n Sour at The Welly Club, Hull - 9th December 04
What's one to do when they are bored with Brighton's infamous Pier amusements,
and has then had their fill of the plethora of fashion and food-orientated
establishments that are packed into Brighton's cosmopolitan city centre?
Aside from any shows that might be playing in the few theatres in the

Sweet n Sour has a new home, a new night and a different feel. In order to take advantage of the Saturday night crowd the Sweet n Sour promoters have moved to Silhouette on Park Street.

Young Jesse Malin, trading New York for Olde York for one night only! I could hardly contain myself
at the prospect, for Jesse is one of the most exciting singer-songwriters to have emerged from
New York City in the past few years since the release of his beautiful debut album,
Music Reviews - Thursday 17th February 05 - Elobo at The Adelphi By Lucy Kynman
Many of you who go out on a regular basis will know the disappointment you get when you're
shakin' your thing on the dance floor and the music changes to your least favourite track.
Wouldn't it be nice for every song played to be one that you love, so you could party

Tuesday 25th January - Mike (The Bonnits) and The Last People on Earth at The Sesh By Daniel Laney Photos by Darren Rogers
Quite saddened by the fact that this was going to be my last trip to The Sesh in a while,
I hesitantly vacated the cars warm interior, knowing full well as soon as my battered
trainers hit the cold, coarse concrete, the evenings egg timer would be turned and
I would be left
