Tues evening 8.30 Sloop Inn, Waterside Road, Barton.
   Make sure before you set off that you know a member to get signed in as a visitor. Remember it is the licensee who gets the £3000 fine if we do not conform to the rules of a club exactly (the room is not all that big either). If several musos can bring digital cameras along, my friendly press man would like some pics emailing to him (he cannot get a press photoman there). It would be nice for him to be able to pic a pic of a muso being refused entry to go with his article.
It was suggested to me that the music police do not move in on our kind of operation without a complaint. This was confirmed by my press contact who got a statement from the licensing department that the MPs acted after "SEVERAL" complaints. I can think of a couple of candidates: there is for instance a pub up the hill that has a license and many costly acts well supported by paying punters. If this candidate is guilty, and I would not dream of laying such a charge without absolute proof which I have not got at this moment in time, it is despicable etc. I don't think I shall be going there again unless they are cleared in my mind.
