Highlights of last week included my flatmate, Miguel le Singe, dropping in to murder a pint after a 14 hour shift; a remarkable backhanded compliment from a girl who was trying to excuse herself and ended up saying, “I’ve got really terrible taste in music, but I really like what you’ve been playing tonight”; a pleasant contrast to the heathen harridan who turned round during KRAAK & SMAAK to inform me, “this is sh!t”; meeting a bloke called Steve who’s a comedian touring with Steve Coogan; two girls, right at the back, waltzing incongruously to YOUNG KNIVES; being rewarded with cider by the boss for playing MARCUS NIKOLAI; a very considered bloke politely requesting PINK FLOYD and feeling a bit sheepish that I couldn’t oblige; and, after a generally quiet night for The Eagle, still finishing the evening with a random bunch of people who didn’t know each other, dancing until 1am.
