Me and the lady will be there :thumbsup:

We live in London now but I'm originally from Donny and she's from the wrong side of the hills (Manc), so I hope we still count as Northerners :thumbsup: !!!

That reminds me of a bit from the film "Kinky Boots" A shoemaker helps a transvestite after a spot of bother in Soho. He asks him where he is from. Shoemakes says, "Northampton". Oh, from up North eh?. Northampton ent up north it's in the Midlands!. Look love, replies the Tran, Tottenham Court Road is in the Midlands! :yes: Well, it made me laugh! Anyway, I'm coming down from the Midlands! :lol:

We had 600+ in though 100 or so were of the hairy paisley variety so don't qualify for a SS survey.

All 3 rooms were humming with quite a few travellers (I got some cheap pegs). Cardiff, Northants Leics and some old Northern heroes like Leeds' Caesar and the ubiquitous Hoss. Jerry Dammers made it and might even spin a bit of ska in the R&B room next time. Lesley's pary were suitably larey and I ducked out of the after party due to old age.

The music was a good mix of rare and party favourites and everyone seemed to be pretty chuffed. Thanks to all the DJs who really delivered, Mick was a great guest and our own Stuart T managed to deliver his first set on one deck with panache and charm.

Cheers to the crowd for getting stuck in.

Really great night, some top tunes including three of my fave records of all time spun one after the other by Tony Smith, 'One way or the other', 'Philly dog around the world' & 'My little girl'!

Got to have a chat with the afore mentioned Jerry Dammmers which made my night being a big Specials fan.

This is the first Crossfire i've been to & twas very enjoyable, will deffo be back.

:thumbsup:

Simon

P.S. One small minus point, i heard the Gigi & the Charmaines out for the first time & i still think it's very average, i just don't get what people see in it i'm afraid, each to their own 'an all that though.

One of the reasons I enjoy Crossfire so much is the variety of the rooms. I always get my drinks in the "hairy paisley" room as I like the music so much. The bar staff were very efficient and all in all , a great night! :thumbsup:

Great night as usual, seemed a massive crowd in compared to a few recent ones. Enjoyed music in all 3 rooms. Nice to meet up with so many people from the forums.

Must admit the Psych room was rather interesting especially when it spilled out into the NS room, people with beards, Mohicans, Goths all mixed in with Soulies!

Si - sorry I didn't get to have a proper chat with you - was a bit messy later into theevening!

It was a good night, the only downer for me was certain elements of the sound - especially in the beat room, where the treble nearly painful

No worries Col, nice to see you out & about anyway, i'm planning to get out of Brighton a bit more so hopefully have a chat at a do sometime in the near future.

Didn't really go in the Beat Room but the sound did cut out a few times in the NS room but nothing too bad. To be honest too many djs (myself included) don't know enough about how the system works & end up turning the trebles & bass etc. up ending up with a wall of distorted sound.

And me it's on the same latitude as TCR so he's being oblique or perverse.

Or is it that I'm so dumb I was heading for the Rocket until Dave Greenhill pointed out the error of my ways and made me get off the tube at Baker Street. whistling.gif

You missed the swearing then?

Sorry 'bout that; the bar staff were meant to mop spillages up and the bouncers to keep drinks off the floor, we'll have an even tougher word with them next time.

You must have been on or near our table then mate! She took her time, but like you said, she just couldn't help herself in the end. :shades:

Pleased someone else saw the scuffle, thought perhaps I dreamt it.

That's how efficient the bouncers were! :shades: I saw, through half cut eyes, a couple of people having a go at each other on the rhs of the hall as you look up from the bar. I think it was a couple of blokes but like Clanger, I thought I'd dreamt it until my mate mentioned the next day. I was fairly late on, about 3am?
