Thanks for dancing to it, Ian. :)

I felt like I was in a weird dream all night and not just because I was drunk. Thanks to everyone who made it, it was brilliant to see you. xx

Gah, we should have done the indiepop-discos-playing-the-same-record-at-mudnight. I love stuff like that :)

In fact I may just scour your track listings to see if we did. That'd be quite funny.

Glad it went well, I *will* come to one someday...

Hmm, looking at the playlist I think it was somewhere around Lazy Line Painter Jane-ish. Nearly.

This was a lovely moment - It made everyone in the room dance even though it was dead early still.

Saturday was great, I loved the crowd we had in and the requests were amazing. Peolple I'd never seen before asking for Pooh Sticks and Free Loan Investments - wow!

It was great having the music pumped upstairs too. I actually lingered in the bar for a while and witnessed the upstairs bar staff bopping away to Le Tigre!

Wow, this was the most wonderful fun I'd had in a long time. I'll certainly miss the club during the summer months. Thank yous for playing my requests too!

Excuse the old thread revival, but have you set a date for when the next Spiral Scratch going to be (I almost wrote 'have you got a date for the next Spiral Scratch?' which could have been open to misinterpretation!)?

I knew we had forgotten to do something important! We'll sort it out next week, Colin, and I'll let you know. Are you planning to come along? That'd be fantastic.

I'd like to, yeah. The only thing is, I had September in mind for the first night of my club so it would depend on that not clashing.

Spiral Scratch is usually on the second Saturday of the month if that helps.
