Excellent!!!!!

Probably be heading to this place for some grub and a couple of beverages before the gig ... it is in Wells Street ... just off Oxford Street and fairly near to the 100 Club ...



Named after a notorious bodysnatcher and boxer, Ben Crouch's Tavern makes a valiant attempt to live up to the full Hammer horror of its namesake's legend. The pub's gloomy Gothick interior is more in keeping with a film set than your average public house - dark-stained wood panelling, dingy nooks and crannies, ironwork, gargoyles and cabinets displaying mysterious objects. To add to the entertainment, Boris Karloff and other horror legends appear on the TV screens behind the bar, (although the big screen usually screens Sky Sports News) and you can get "seven deadly sins" cocktails in test tubes. More mundanely, there's a couple of real ales on the hand pumps, a pretty standard range of other beers and lagers on tap, an average wine list and pub grub. It's all very reasonably priced for the area and is a handy refuelling stop for tourists and shoppers during the day. By night (especially at weekends), it's not, as one one might expect a gloomy gathering place for Goths, but a meeting place for fresh-faced young things, who gather here for a cheap(ish) top-up before heading for the pricier bars and clubs that abound in these parts.

Looks okay to me. I'll be there about 6. Doors are 7.30, so I will be going to the 100 quite early.

Here's a map:

So, the dTb winds up in Spain tomorrow (Sunday 26). Does anyone know what Derek's plans are? Back to the US or hook up with Susan? They are playing at the same festival.

It would make sense for him to play the last three shows of Susan's tour - Paris, London and Cambridge - and go home together.

I seriously want to see Derek and Matt having a jam at close quarters!

So who's all up for Saturday at the Betsy to see the Snake Oil Rattlers (Barry(Hippy 69)'s band). I'll be there from about 5.30. (pm not am!).

Enjoy Susan's gig on Wednesday, guys!

Aaaaaargh... just been told by work I have to go to Wetherby on Thursday. Wetherby! Damn it. So I'm going to get up ridiculously early to try and get there at 8am or so, do a days work in half a day, then get back to London in time for the gig. I will positively spit blood if this crappy job means I miss Matt and Derek possibly playing together... Damn damn damn!

Just a quick advisory to you guys going to Susan's show on Thursday: Her guitar player, Dave Yoke, plays a Gibson SG. So when you see that red guitar on stage, hold your excitement about Derek being in the house until you know for sure.... then take lots of pictures and get some good recordings, so we can all share the experience vicariously.
