Pressure point

Sped over to Shepherds Bush last night to catch the wonderful Zutons at the Empire – cracking performance they seemed really up for it. Only dissapointment were the heathen bouncers who seemed intent on beating up anyone who looked as if they might be enjoying themselves. Long gone are the days when after a spot of crowd surfing you would be firmly (but not fiercely) pulled from atop and told to "clear off". Going on last night's evidence you can now expect a couple of jabs in the ribs and even a slap round the chops before being manhandled out of the auditorium. And even once you're out you can still find yourself on the receiving end of a few punches – as we entered we saw two bouncers laying into someone. One was holding him against a wall the other was systematically punching him in the stomach. They eventually left him, staggering and with blood coming from his grazed head. Bouncers are tossers.

I have lived in the area for the last few years and have recently bought a flat. My aim is to provide anyone who can be arsed with snippets of life in and around Clapham Junction. From a menu change at Tony's Cafe to amusing anecdotes from Mike at The Eagle, this is where it's at….
