I Terrorists hijack the llueen Well not quite. but this week our letters editor received photos of old Queenie’s portrait. which was stolen from the RAF club in Glasgow.

The photos show the twilight organisation known only as ‘The Goodfoot Appreciation Society‘ standing in masks below the portrait. N0t exactly what I would call ‘appreciation’. getting the club closed down. not big and not clever and most deﬁnitely not getting a bottle of tequila. I Squid opens at La Belle Angele. Edinburgh on 14 May.

With DJs Andy Williams and John Gianni playing a mixture of bouncy balearic tunes alongside their guest for the night DJ Lofty (Boys Own) from London.

The musical jamboree will be DJ’d by regulars Scott Ferguson and Andy Williams. with occasional guests. Of course expect complete Carbolic decor and a friendly but ﬁrm door policy. ensuring a good night out for all you kings and queens of the danceﬂoor.
