The Big Man Restless

I'm getting more excited, and at the same time more nervous about the new Windypops club night. I'm slightly disappointed to be given the 8 to 9.30 slot on the opening night (will anyone be there then?) but if it is quiet at least I won't have a lot of people complaining if they don't like it. Of course it's a great shame that they'll miss out on my well planned 6 record run of absolute guaranteed floor fillers but there you go.
This is now the publicity currently reads:
Windypops! - Super Dooper Launch Night
Monday, 8th November - 8pm til 2am
Brand new and exclusive to the area, Windypops is the East End's ONLY alternative club night, with an emphasis on fun and frivolity over cool and an absence of jollity.
The music policy is fun and funky, indie and pop from PJ Harvey to PJ and Duncan and everything in between - if you can dance to it; we'll play it.
Human League, Pulp, Soft Cell, Le Tigre, Tina Turner, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Beatles, Kate Bush, Shampoo, Voice Of The Beehive, Bowie, Radiohead, Kylie, The Jackson Five, Chicks On Speed and lots, lots more. Strictly no Travis, Muse or Coldplay.
Every week we'll be delving into a range of DJ's record bags and coming up with some of the funkiest, funniest frolics possible. This club is for people that enjoy good music and cheap booze without the hassle of having to visit the West End on a Monday night.
Anyone and everyone is welcome... you needn't know your A-has from your Elbows.
Playing the music that you'll be jumpin' and guzzlin' to, will be regulars Telco (aka RockJohn; Marvellous, Rocktronica), IanH (Retro Bar) (ooh that's me!) and JunkLady, along with other guests.
