He really has that ability which I envy the most these days on a DJ. To be able to smoothly mix poppy stuff with "UG" sound.

UG?

my favourite track of the year so far...

I can picture a t-shirt wafting those insipid melodies around a disconnected room of hair cuts.

It was either that or 7 Ways To Love.

Exactly.

Trikk - Wardance Dub

They can have that one.

My stag weekend kicked off on a Friday night at Babelicious on Hastings Pier in March '95 for Tong/Digweed/Sasha - from any number of different perspectives the next 20 years are best summed up by saying the whole fucking thing went downhill thereafter...

Yet here we are. This is it.

Not sure if this does help.

Looking at Dubrovnik. Mainly because its the only place Ive heard of.

How much is the pint?

With Dubrovnik most people mean the Old Town. That's the walled in medieval place/harbour that was under siege for a time in 1991/2. It's surrounded by steep wooded mountains and overlooked by a Napoleonic era fort, topped by a telecoms mast. That was used by the defenders during the siege and the ITN news footage of the shelling around the mountains and the Old Town itself - I well remember.

The Old Town is busy with some days multiple massive cruise liners dumping several thousand extra people into it. You can check on the port authority website for arrivals.

You might be better looking at staying in Lapad. Dubrovnik is a very odd narrow slice of land cut off from the rest of Croatia, with the Old Town at one end - Lapad is the other end of the slice and will be cheaper and a lot less busy, in a good way. You can get a bus into the Old Town direct and takes about 10 minutes. There are loads of buses.

As you can tell, I do like Croatia. To answer your question...

Big cafe/bar on the harbour...

Always thought the Kenny Larkin mix was 6 minutes too long.

Vocals by Albert Ross of Albert Ross and the Otters.

Aren't the numbers of NHS 'managers' going up and GPs going down?

I was there just before it all kicked off & they started burying their next door neighbours. Stunning place. Really beautiful. Only beer was Tuborg & there were people selling their belongings at the side of the road. Scored some nice calipers & some brown Farahs.

When it was Yugoslavia?

Croatia was a part of Yugoslavia. The positive, friendly bit.

Never mind all that culture bollocks, lads. How much are the brasses?.

Not sure about the price of brasses.

All the ladies are very fit though, up until 40 or something.

It's got Irish bars now, fadass, and everything. Free wi-fi, beer, pizza, sky sports.

Hitachi tell us the craic with Croatia. I'm thinking of going in September.

They invented the Dalmatian dog and the cravat, Sean.

September is good enough for Roman Abramovich to mince around the Adriatic and park his yacht just outside Dubrovnik - it's good enough for anyone.

Hurrah for fucking more Politics. That's what Our Proud Nation NEEDS.

Croatia again, love it.

Will it be a mind trip or body journey, I'm wondering?

That Altern 8 track was out in 1991. The mind must play tricks.

If you haven't seen AC/DC live you haven't lived.

Agreed, saw them in '88 and they truly rocked it.  One of the loudest shows I've ever seen, but the setup was perfect, my ears were fine the next day.

How old are you ghostriddenhuffy?

Supersonic. A look at drug abuse in the UK during the early to mid-nineties. The twist was getting a random lady called Peggy to provide the insight from a Mancunian/Irish point of view. Soundtrack by Oasis, but strangely enjoyable 7/10.

My Scientology Film. Louis Theroux doing his thing looking at a rubbish pyramid scheme for brain wrong bullies. Pointless really as it had nothing new to say. 4/10.

He was signed from Sligo Rovers for 60,000 euros or quid - or something like that. He's been great since day one, slaloming up and down the right, going past whoever is put in front of him. A shithouse tackle on him, hopefully he will recover fully.
