Had no idea you lived down here.

They're not changing the promoters if that's what you're worried about, got more sense than that thank fuck.

Always wonder about these sniffer dogs, never ever seen them actually sniff anyone in the queue for anything - admittedly a lot of festivals don't use proper sniffer dogs but last NYE there was a beagle who didn't seem to give a shit about anything.

Prob too fucked to give a fuck Laughing out loud

Bit unfair on fabric. It's not as if they turned a blind eye to it. Got hauled into their office for a search once. That's only ever happened to me twice. Other time was at the misery of pounds who've been hot on it forever

Only ever had that happened to me once, for the crime of passing my mate a few quid to get a pint Laughing out loud

Yeah, in my final year at uni down here. That Matt B promoter has done wonders to the club since i've lived down here.

re: fabric. I've seen a couple of people get stopped by dogs at festivals but nothing ever happens of it. Plus they're now being made to use ID scanners, so there's a chance of our personal data being given out (which i'm sure fabric won't).

Yeah the house and tech scene has really taken off here the last couple of years. Wish his photographer mate would fuck off though, noone needs to see 10 HDR photos of themselves gurning their face off every other weekend.

I used to drink at a pub by fabric and every so often police would go HAM on poor teenagers coming out of the station. Pretty much a factory line of sending them off in cars Sad

'Sniffer dogs' do nothing anyway, these dodgy security companies who batter people and tax anything decent probably borrow the animals from the dogs home for the night.

Out of sheer boredom and wanting to 'tidy' up my soundcloud I have done my top 25 of 2014. Has took me 3 hours and is exclusively taken from songs I have liked on my soundcloud this year so I am sure I have missed a few bigguns!

Sad cunt I know!

Top 3 are
Murat Tepeli - Forever (Prosumer's Hold Me Touch Me Mix)
Daniel Jacques - End of My World
Jungle - The Heat (Joy Orbison Remix)

Might be of interest to someone

Real risk of this happening and would be a huge shame. Westminster definitely aware of it so will hopefully go some way to maintaining current feel.
