Are we talking tip the Kool Aid over the coach, or Nike sneakers and a long nap Kool Aid?

It actually wasn't Kool aid at the Jones town massacre. Apparently some other raro-esque offering. Kool aid hasn't tried to play it down tho because there is no such thing as bad advertising.

Truth is, raro will kill you too. Just slowly

Just wanting clarification on the speed with which your provided beverage will kill the attendees.

Probably not as dangerous as that bridge pickup on your Gretch.

In further news, I drove past the dogs bollix the other day and its gone, first time that way for ages - another sad passing of a venue, to be expected though. Think we've done a couple of forum gigs there, one with the ARSE on the line-up and a couple of gearfests.

To be fair it went downhill a few years back when they shut for awhile, then came back with the dancefloor gone primarily as a 'venue'
That's a shame. I remember watching Reb Fountain performing at Dog's Bollix. Glad to see her signed with Flying Nun now.

I remember there being a dodgy as Bitcoin vending machine that was always out of order before the whole world went apeshit for crypto.

Have a look on the studio website, I think just sticks and cymbals needed. But bring whatever you want obviously.
