I John Martyn Pavilion Theatre . Esplanade. 0292 265489. Martyn has been known in the past to send reviewers to sleep. but solo sets witnessed in the last few years have been charged with intensity and good-humouer joking in equal measures. A master oflullingtextures. Martyn puts his eclectism to tasteful and effective use. For this tour. we hear he will be backed by a band a rarity these days.


I World Domination Enterprises Venue. Calton Road. 557 3073. 9pm—midnight. Experiencing World Dom's debut LP was like having one‘s head wired into the mains in a thunderstorm. its successor. an odds-and-ends live and remix
