The most surprising thing about the Tuborg Music website is that it's promoting Tuborg. Tuborg, which has been relaunched after - what - two decades off British shelves. Well, we say shelves, it tended to be more in dump bins rather than shelves. Presumably they had to wait until everyone who could remember what it tasted like had died before they could try to market it as a groovy, young person's lager, rather than the stuff you'd see reluctantly purchased by your uncle when he'd left getting the beers in too late for a family get-together.

It's presumably why is excited by the Towers of London - they were a cheap alternative to enjoyment that were briefly available a few years back, until they disappeared from a market that developed more sophisticated tastes.
