Meeting No.18 – Futurama

With apologies to Be Bop Deluxe……

With apologies to Be Bop Deluxe……

The theme for this meeting was ‘The Future’ with most of us thinking along the lines of 50’s SciFi. There were 2 dollops of Hawkwind, in a heady mix of everything from the Rezillos to Kraftwerk via Nicolas Jarr and the Broken Family Band…….When Si played a song inspired by the ‘Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy’ Jez noted that that Futuristic piece of equipment (a small hand held device that could tell you anything about anything) was indeed with us already, as all the music was played on futuristic iPods or iPhones. Don’t Panic! Accommodation and fine cheeses were supplied by John M.
