Long Live Rock

On the day that London’s legendary Astoria hosts it’s final gig before being demolished for a £16 Billion rail project that the country can’t really afford, this seems incredibly apt listening. We’re also at least losing the LA2 and the Metro Club (the Borderline doesn’t look too safe, either) in favour of a giant ticket hall at Tottenham Court Road, and it’s looking increasingly likely that there won’t actually be anything left to visit once you get there. Pretty soon the only places in London to see live music will be your soulless o2 arenas.

Rock is dead. Long live rock.

I’ll see you in the Keith Moon bar afterwards to trash the place. It’s what he would have wanted.
