llory Weller answers those crucial queries.
I flame? Mcgadog. I Age? Been around in various guises since 1985 when they held pysehedelic rock gigs as Club Dog.
I Occupation? fix-hippies turned providers of an alternative. spiritual. New Age. 90s ambient-techno festi- club crossover vibe.
I Eh? You heard.
I So, a load of old crusty long-hairs on acid then? Au contraire. my friend. I So, less dog-on-a-string, more handbag-on-a-gold chain then? They've come a long way since the inevitable dog-on-a-string jokes.

I Sounds too good to be true. Well. maybe it’s time to bury the hatchet wilh the Megadog people and lay all those ill-founded ‘they must be crusty" misconceptions to rest then.
I Why should I? Cos they‘re making an effort to move on and so should you. you sad old bigot.
I Steady on, mate, they‘re only hippies, not worth arguing about. Give it a rest. this is I995 and it's time to
I But, the whole thing‘s so wierd, it’s just not the same, it’s just different . . . Get a life tosser.
