Dildo Tango in the Witches (sic) Kitchen.

Is the headline of the century? A slightly misinformed, but positive review of the legendary Ludus gig at the Hacienda, in which Linder Sterling staged a protest against the casual showing of porn at the venue. This is the moment when Linder wore her famous 'meat dress' which she whipped off to reveal a large black dildo. The protest was arranged in cahoots with Liz Naylor and Cath Carroll, then of City Life.

Next to this we have a review of Sylvester's PA at Hero's. The reviewer is somewhat underwhelmed.
