BACK WHEN SMASH HITS WAS VER HITS

We've been meaning to cough politely and draw your attention to the somewhat wonderful concept that is Smash Hits 7, which is a monthly clubnight in London, Middlesex dedicated to the music from the first years of Smash Hits life. (1978 to 1985, to save you having to research.)

It's on at the Nambucca on Holloway Road this Wednesday - 30th November - from 7pm, kicking off with a showing of Gregory's Girl. Admission is free, and five per cent of the bar take goes to Save The Children. (We think that means the charity, rather than funding a project to round up kids who buy Avril Lavigne records and re-educate them in some sort of camp pumping Altered Images at them.)

If you're not in London, you'll have to make your own entertainment

Saw GG again the other day. Had forgotten the bit where the demon Headmaster is playing the piano to himself in his study - some bizarre end of the pier stroke music hall tune with lots of trills - and turns around to glare at the miscreant entering without knocking. Fabulous.

Ah, yes, one of the greatest moments in cinema:

"On your way, you small boy..."
