12 Bar Club Closure.

Some of you may have heard of the forced closure of the 12 Bar Club by property developers on January 16th. Not just the 12 Bar but the whole musical history of Denmark Street is to be destroyed to make way for a yuppie development. The original Tin Pan Alley, notable worldwide for it's music shops and it's history of recordings by the Beatles, the Stones, Hendrix, etc and the Pistols' rehearsal space (I'm guessing the graffiti covered wall there is also doomed). If Denmark Street existed in say Paris there is no way such cultural heritage would be allowed to be sold. Indescribably sad. Another example of this city going down the pan. There is talk of me putting on a final Blang night in the next month. I'll let you know.

It's been a year of very mixed blessings for me. I hope your's has been more peaceful. Have a great Christmas and New Year everyone.
