Fresh tucker for pampered bunnies.
I Flood, Pariah and Eurythromycin Cluny Church Centre. Morningside. 7.30pm. You're not going to believe this. but here goes. This is a charity gig for the church roof which is in danger of collapsing. Once the bands crank up. i suspect that the damge will be beyond repair but never mind. The publicity for literally bringing the roof down at a gig will be immensely valuable.

Despite being the oldest teenagers in town. the Poppies retain their vitality which nowadays is tempered with a bit of PC bile. but despite their collaborations with The Prodigy and Fun-Da-Mental. they remain intrinsically student fodder.

New kids Drugstore have just released their ‘Starcrossed‘ single on Honey Records. Sound City

When the music stops they charge at their partner . . . head down. boots and ﬁsts i1ai1ing.’ Seems a bit unlikely that the kids will continue this tradition into 1994. but it's likely to be a lively night nonetheless. 999 have got a new album out for the diehard fans entitled You Us It. Features all new material too.
