The Editor's highly erratic inkjet printer miraculously managed to print out some half-decent copies of posters for the event.
Curious going-ins by the DJ Booth as a baseball-cap toting Scott warms up the crowd with his inspired 'Country Bass' set. Scott's set included: Lambchop: Up with people, Dottie West: Delta Dawn, Johnny Cash: Hurt, Alabama3: Hypo Full of Love and Lucinda Williams: Can't Let Go.
Adoring fans by the DJ booth. Well, sort of ;)
Quaffing blokes. On the left is DJ Blagsta, who played a fab set including Violent Femmes: Add It Up, Talking Heads: Crosseyed & Painless, Curtis Mayfield: Do Do Wap Is Strong in Here, Dennis Brown: Man Next Door and The Clash - Know Your Rights.
IanW from 'How Does It Feel To Be Loved' on the dex. His set included: Merry Clayton: Gimme Shelter, The Supremes: You Can't Do That, The Redskins: Keep On Keepin' On, Nick Drake: Hazy Jane II and Gladys Knight & The Pips: Heard It Through The Grapevine.

Actionette 'Tourette' spinning some 60s-00s girl/grrrl band tunes.
What's known in the trade as a 'DJ Handover'. Tourette plays out with Jonathon Richman's 'Road Runner', leaving the Editor to dust off his collection of post-punk 45s.
