My review of psych-rocker band Purson, who visited Brighton's The Hope & Ruin in promotion of new album 'Desire's Magic Theatre'.
Promoting their new album at the Hope And Ruin, Purson whipped up a psych rock storm of their own on Easter Sunday.

"When powerful men tell a woman who might just become the most powerful in the world to smile, it reminds the rest of us that no matter how well we play the game, it is ultimately rigged against us."
Even the potential next POTUS isn't immune from having her face and tone policed.

As someone's who's freaking out over piercing/make up removal more than potential paralysis when and if my back surgery ever rolls round, I GET THIS. (And beauty helps women in recovery too, at a time when they're feeling pretty shitty about their body and want to regain some control over it).

Wowzers.
A POLICE officer told a Croydon nightclub owner to "change the music" in his venue and questioned why he had been playing drum and bass, an audio recording passed to the Advertiser shows. ...

Tattooist didn't carry out my design to instruction and refused to give me a refund when I pointed out that what was inked on me was not what I had specified. Very poor customer service, bad attitude when I was trying to politely point out the mistake and would not even negotiate a partial refund when I suggested it. Gentleman who had booked my appointment understood what I wanted but failed to communicate this to the artist who ended up doing the inking. When I attended my appointment they didn't seem sure of what I wanted or where I wanted it, despite having explained all this when I booked the appointment a week beforehand. Bad levels of hygiene too with people eating in the tattooing area, knocking into the chair as they were doing so. Enter at your own risk. Make sure that they know what it is you want. I wasn't trying to dispute the artist's knowledge and experience (as was implied by the lady in question), merely asking for a refund as that's what businesses are supposed to do when they haven't met standards required. This reasonable request was met with derision and aggression.
