Pokey's playing a tiny (poky, even) cafe in London next month. Quite looking forward to going - it's one of those places where the band plays while you eat.

jack four ones-did you see them? how was it? i saw them last night in sein looie. they just flew in from scotland the night before but showed no signs of jet lag. there is cult material in this band. the new album comes out next month-the new songs are so good. pokey has a magic stage presence for someone so wet and wild and short and thin but he can squeeze out of any position you put him in. la la la

Aqua... he is such a fine young southern gentleman with such as warm disposition... his songs are smooth but his commentary is smoother... you will absolutely fall in love with him and begin to demand that he make some 78's if you allow yourself this rare treat in my opinion :wub:

OK, I have checked him out, and must admit he's very talented, though I'd prefer that he didn't look like Pee Wee Herman . .
