weird.. actually someone told me that Calibre never plays west of Brighton anymore.. don't know how true this is..

what sort of contracts are those? can't really figure out any particular reason why a contract could say sth like this...

So they have exclusive booking rights. Grin

Not unusual over here. MCD here in Ireland had/have a deliberate policy of destroying any and all competition. They'd knowingly lose money on a gig by running a similar event on the same night as their competitors. Even U2 manager Paul McGuinness (not exactly a man of the people) was heard to complain about their antics - and their eventual total domination of all Irish music events.

They also have robo-trolls on the internet tracking down any online critics (on forums etc.) and threatening legal action. So expect an MCD-shaped cockface to turn up here any minute now. Lol

Funnily enough, I was listening to a lot of old Bukem sets from '92 and '93 lately and was surprised how energetic and "hard" those sets of his were. I only knew him from his "Atmospheric" times starting to listen do Junge myself around '97 and would never have thought he used to spin that "rave-y"
