As the decision has been made to not try and flog a dead horseresurrect Club Octaine again, we will give you the opportunity to say good-bye properly.

We (hopefully all three wise monkeys) will be at WUS this Tuesday and probably also at The Avery beforehand so we can cry into our drinks and, more importantly, reminisce about the crazy experiment that should never have survived as long as it did.

How did it last that long? Well, it was all thanks to the Easter one in 2004 which made us enough profit to keep us going for another year. We never had any more people than the average (probably 30-40, max) after that so we never made another profit.

Why did it ultimately fail?
Because people are generally only interested in one genre of music on one evening and can't deal with change.
We had a handful of die-hard fans who loved what we were doing but there weren't enough of them, sadly.

So, thanks to all of you who did believe in us and we hope you enjoyed it. Come along and say goodbye tomorrow, we'd love to see you.

(others to follow, [livejournal.com profile] raggedy_man's scrawl is a bit of a challenge)

Industrial, EBM, Electro, Dance, Noise )

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke and [livejournal.com profile] littlelightbulb for the loan of some CDs and to [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and [livejournal.com profile] b00mer for the demos.
Apologies to [livejournal.com profile] kmrikky for not playing the EBM Remix of Embrace, the decks wouldn't accept my CDR, despite using a high-grade Audio one. Bloody things. :o(

We're back on form, sort of. We didn't break even on the night but we managed to not make any losses with the money we had left over - just. These means there will be another one early next year, watch this space.

[livejournal.com profile] raggedy_man had to leave early, so I did the last 2 hours and 40 minutes on my own. Thankfully, I had packed various things so the set wasn't just EBM, Electro and Noise (although I finished with loads of the latter).

Good night, could have been better but wasn't a disaster. Bed now.

- Rock School on Friday was pretty cool, although I find nobody at that school ever having heard about KISS rather unbelievable. "I wear more makeup and higher heels than your mother!" Hehehe.
- Did some more photo editing. Generic photos from ARA and Manchester should go online today. It'll be a while until the full collections will be online, though. So many photos to sort through... (the gargoyle in the userpic is from the fountain in front of City Hall)
- Yesterday was a bit hectic, too as I overslept and then it took me 1.5 hours to get to the Holloways'. I was stuck around the Backs for an hour, no idea what held up the traffic that badly. The queue reached around the roundabout towards the river/Trumpington Road, too, but was gone towards Newnham, so something on Trumpington Road, I assume.
- Rose Crescent, [livejournal.com profile] jholloway's Unknown Armies game, was excellent, however. We're now deep in the Big Ritual and considering the other participants/adversaries, we're doing remarkably well, most likely due to sheer luck and bloodymindedness than actual skill but still. I think Coat has given up trying to understand what's going on and just rolls with it which seems to do him just fine.
- Got home and cooked dinner with enough leftovers for today and then headed over to [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke's to say Hi to [livejournal.com profile] ditzy_pole who had been to a wedding in the area and was crashing over. Was good to see and chat with you again! *waves*
- Did a detour via town because I wanted to flyer the Kambar but there was no way of getting past the queue so I went back home. I should have gotten there earlier but left Robin's too late.
- Did some more photo editing and watched H, another Korean thriller about a serial killer (which is OK but nothing special).
- Today, it's sorting out CDs for Octaine on Thursday and possibly some more photo editing. I need to finish the Manchester lot before my trip to Berlin.
