Rate The DJ

The Jengaheads at The Living Room, Glasg Weekly Wed.

Fiona, Sam and Sarah (l-r), all students.

- I've heard them do much more lively sets than this, which IS more my kind of thing. I suppose that's what people want in a bar on a Wednesday, nothing too challenging. It's been good, though, not too hard, not too cheesy. For some reason, I've only ever heard one Jengahead at a time.

- I've heard them indiwdually hundreds of times, but never together. They seem to have a similar style to each other though, so maybe I JUSl haven't noticed

them swapping over.

- I think it's been a bit samey, really. All very good house and disco stuff, but I

could have done with a bit more variety.
