Can you arrange for my friend to have it off with Tim Wheeler?

Went to see Ash last night at Brixton Academy, and it was very nice - mostly because of the way they played. Every song was played far too fast, and all at exactly the same tempo, so it was just like seeing The Ramones, it was ace.

They did a huge encore of their older songs (Petrol, Uncle Pat, Jack Names The Planest was in their somewhere) and also did a cover of the John-Peel-tastic "Teenage Kicks".

Got tickets from my friend Geraldine, and she refused to take any money for them. She is a stage manager or something similar on that television, and is looking for work for January, can anyone help? Or can you just send her free stuff, because she is so smashing? Email geraldine@popex.com or just send stuff to the address on the homepage...

Went to the pary afterwards at Mass, the only notable "celebrity" is in Stalking Heads, but there was plenty of free Absinth, I am absolutely stinking of it still - not looking forward to sobering up...
