Two knackered old warhorses have some life beaten back into them this month, as Liverpool's Picket venue re-opens in the new "Independence" zone, an area set aside far away from the Duke of Westminster's new shopping centre. Related, Liverpool Now is making a comeback in what may be its third or fourth version - now, rather than the pan-Merseyside musical celebration it nearly became before in-fighting and territorial battles ripped the heart from the festival, it's going to take the form of a few gigs and a collection of seminar-type events for those slippery folks, "young people".

Amongst those being invited to provide seminars teaching the kids that working at their music is a great way to avoid trouble and secure your future are the people behind the So Solid Crew. Well, they should know.
