 	OK, this is enough to bring me out of my silence. Firstly I had 
managed to miss this, and I am torn between being cross at it being still 
another retread and delighted by what it actually *is*---I shall go for 
the latter, I think. But also this got me looking at Mission Control for 
the first time in a *long* time, thankfully still in time to find the 
notice about Hawktoberfest and go, "The PINK FAIRIES?"

 	Sadly, Wikipedia, for want of a better source, tells me that this 
Pink Fairies contains neither Larry Wallis nor Paul Rudolph (and not Twink 
either, possibly for the best but he is apparently active again as I 
learnt from Jerry Kranitz's Space-Rock Radio in Aural Innovations the 
other day, leading me to webpages that say he is now trading as Mohammed 
Abdullah in the name of a newly acquired Muslim faith!). In fact, it's 
basically the last Deviants line-up, including Jacki Windmill, a second 
drummer and Andy Colquhoun on guitar. Apparently this line-up did a couple 
of Fairies gigs in May; did anybody see, was it fun? I would probably pay 
a quid or two extra myself to have Ms Windmill not turn up, but otherwise 
I want not to be too disappointed...  Yours all, still out here,
