Notes

Well, now really is the time of a great big mother of a battle in the time of the end time. I bloody knew it was. On Sunday 28th August, I'm taking part in a Battle Royale.

Battle Royale takes place at a bar called The End on Bridge Street in central Northampton. It has been organised by the boys from The Shakedown, a DJ crew with even more Weekender awards to their name than Wilson. The idea is that everybody piles out into the rather lovely garden to watch and groove as DJs battle it out mano a mano, tune by tune, for an hour at a time. I find myself with an appointment for 4:00 in the afternoon, when I am due to go up against Kainerface, the mad monocled eminence-grise of them Retro-Spankees. It's free to get in and there are live bands playing in the evening, so if you're as curious as I am about the whole thing, why not come and see what happens?

THIS SUNDAY AT THE END - FREE ALL DAY

BATTLE ROYALE - BLACKWIRE AND THE NEW CASSETTES LIVE AT THE END

WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG Let's be honest: everybody hates somebody. We all hold grudges and we're all capable of detesting people we've only just met based on the flimsiest of evidence (example: "he once used the word 'Stateside' during a conversation about ten-pin bowling - verdict: twat.")

The Shakedown DJs have harnessed this suppressed rage and plan on unleashing it all over the course of a single Sunday afternoon. We've paired up all the Northamptonians with a beef and given them the opportunity to battle it out on the decks. By the end of the day we expect a feeling of serenity to descend as the sun rises over the Shire on Monday morning, bringing with it a new dawn of peace.

Until Sunday 28th August, let's make sure we can't get along. Shouldn't be hard. I mean, you're a prick, but I don't make a big issue out of it.

14 DJs battle it out and 2 live bands calm the nerves while we clear up the blood and put it on your hotdogs.
