Leeza, Helen2, Rednik, Electric Blue, Susans,
Spaceface and Dick Mac set the record for most
BowieNetters in the Heddon Street phone box at one time.
Hey man, oh Helen get off the phone...
Tomorrow (Sunday) is your last chance to see the superb 'Darkness and Disgrace' before its Edinburgh Festival run from 13th-27th August. A group of us went along last night to see this edited-for-Edinburgh version of the piece, and both those that had seen the full version and those that were seeing it for the first time agreed that this version really is worth a look. It was a pleasure to meet several other BowieNetters there and if you are in the area tomorrow, you really should make the effort to go along. Further details can be found in previous posts here on BowieNet. (07/24/01 NEWS: DARKNESS AND DISGRACE TICKET WINNERS)
After last night's show and after we had all enjoyed some small amount of liquid refreshment, Spaceface managed the impossible task of herding eight of us into waiting vehicles with a view to visiting the Bowie shrine that is the phone box in Heddon Street. Once there, much merriment was had as we attempted to set the record for most BowieNetters in the phone box at one time. Rednik made a feeble attempt to become first BowieNetter on top of the box, but failed miserably.
Bemused tourists and late-night revellers looked on as the drunken raggle-taggle squeezed into the groaning box. I did the decent thing of greatly increasing the chances of success by not taking part and staying behind the camera. We rounded off the evening with a trip to China Town and a bellyful of noodles. Thanx for a lovely evening folks and good luck to Des De Moor and Russell Churney in Edinburgh.
