  • A brief intro...
    Been to plenty of events up & down the country as well as Italy over the years. Enough to know what I'm seeing and talking about, not enough to be an expert on such though! Don't dance as much as I should, could but don't DJ, enjoying promoting the West Wilts Soul Club in trowbridge -4 nights this year 5 next year and an all-nighter (the first ever for Wiltshire?).

  1. Glad you're sorted Paul, JIC anyone else is reading this thread I can highly recommend the Kam RZ12A V3 active P/a speakers (1000w) which suit our venue (150 cap) very well indeed. Good clear sound and utterly reliable and a bargain at £120 (stands extra).
  2. Sure there are plenty of punters (dare I even say the majority at many places?) who'll not care if the record they're appreciating at a venue is original vinyl, official issue vinyl, fake vinyl, cd, mp3 or cassette! (in that order sliding scale I should imagine too). BUT There are plenty of travelling soul fans (by which I mean getting in your car and driving an hour or more -I know that's a shock to some -but many, like me, have to travel at least 30 miles to go to a pukka venue, my own club excluded, natch) who DO care very much and frankly if a venue wasn't, at the very least, playing genuine vinyl (legitimate re-issues) I would feel distinctly cheated -seriously I would, and I can include all of the crowd we meet up with at these places too. One of the overwhelming reasons we decide to go to a new venue (to us) is because we want to support what they're doing in the hope they'll do the same for us in return, few of these choices are made because there's nowhere else we want to go to -so you're burning your bridges by making such choices and that heightens the disappointment of course. I've actually walked out of these places and let the promotor know why before now, sure most shrug their shoulders and point to the full dance floor, but it's the same as a dodgy market trader pointing to his bulging wallet to me -a total sham carried out increasingly by people who'd rather make money from fakery than provide a genuine product. I know some take the piss -but's that why I'll defend the rights to any promoter to put 'ovo' or 'vinyl only' on their flyers/adverts, whilst I agree the default should be OVO, there are too many bandwagon jumpers to enable the poor sod choosing where to go to have a fair choice, be honest -if it's vinyl only say so, if you're going to play ska -say so, if it's got no dance floor -say so! Those that care can thank you and go elsewhere, those that don't care can enjoy the company of like minded individuals.
  3. I have to say I don't understand why anyone would buy a boot deliberately just because it's cheap. The sound quality is almost always absolutely dire, you can't play them out at any self respecting venue (certainly not a OV venue) and if you only want the track for home use why not download it/ get it on CD?
  4. Use a VPN- you can download and use one for a small sum annually, it'll then allow you to fake your IP location to any country. We watch Italian/French TV all the time by this means and we'll probably use it for watching British TV from wherever we retire to later.
  5. Geno Washington at the IOW ryde theatre about 15 years back. Awful, like a semi coherent pub singer on the karaoke. Even the most amateur of tribute acts did their performance with more gusto & talent.
  6. I take it 'Liberal' means Libdem? There are actually 2 separate parties -the Liberals and the Liberal democrats to be fair.

    1st time for us after 2 years at St Ives also, what a great line up of professional across the board DJs and some of the most wonderful music (and many surprises old & new!), laughter, good vibes and good times had by all. Good dance floor, excellent bar, great location. I'm actually quite loathe to place a review as I'd like to keep this all to myself -it's that good! Well done Sara, Dean, Paul & all the jocks and organisers, a top result! (unlike spurs but we won't go there).
  8. Keep an eye on ebay and make sure you give a list/photos to any of those pawn type shops in the local area also? i.e. cash converters, local jewellers that buy items etc? My sis in law in Italy had her house broken into with the keys by the cleaners mates and lost a lot of stuff, totally shite that.
  9. Basically I'd expect US import & customs charges to stay the same, the real difference will be we'll be paying customs charges from the european mainland. Of course, if the pound continues to slide against the dollar and euro the real difference will be that anything other than £ transactions will be more expensive in any case. I've stopped buying from the US unless I can get a good chunk of stuff due to high postage in any case.
