 Paul Van Dijk didn't come! (23/12/1999 -- tekst: a friendly regular Noctis user)
By a regular Noctis user: "I can confirm your suspicion on Paul VanDijk not coming to Zilveren Spoor in Moorsele. There has been a discussion about that on Belrave mailing list and I'll paste some of the posts. "Regarding Belgium, we haven't confirmed a new gig. Maybe in April / May but that's not confirmed yet. You can find Paul's next gigs on our homepage Paul van Dyk will spin in Sheffield for Gatecrasher on NYE and not in Belgium." "The promotors asked PvD about 7 months ago whether he would play at their Millenium Party. They got an 'okay' from the booking agency "If the artist agreed". And 'the contract would be send in due time". They heared nothing 'till end of October so they figured this would be okay, and they made the flyers WITH PvD's name on it. Not very smart without a 100% confirmation... In November they get a fax stating that Paulie boy will not be attending... So they give a flyer design WITHOUT PvD on it to OutSoon. Hence the confusion. So, PvD is NOT coming." "Paul Van Dyck and Psychogene are not playing and are replaced by TC Brain and myself. The organisation apparantly is not planning to do something about the information (mistakes) on the flyer. I was already booked three months ago, so they knew it already in advance." (Mail from DJ Spacid (FGA)) U can draw your conclusion about PVD (not) coming, and about the organisation."

Just get the information on the BoupsRadio website... or call on friday the 31st at 0496.31 28 08 (or 0495.35 55 70) after 20:00.

 The Scene is closed (22/12/1999 -- tekst: Nicolas)
It was first a gossip (25th of November), then it has been confirmed by BCM members... the club of Zzinno has been closed by it's official owner: Le Carré. Scene club still exists, but as a commercial mainstream club and with another name. It seems that The Scene did not get enough cash to please the boss. Mmmh... The Scene - Oudenaarde. Link to their site here.

 Hilarious razzia at Obelix club (21/12/1999 -- tekst: Nicolas)
The Police of Antwerp did last week-end an unexpected control at Obelix club located on Frankrijklei. They found six laughing gas bottles, and noted that the owner of the club was distributing balloons of this gas to all the customers. To own some of this gas is not prohibited in the country, but its sale and its distribution are prohibited over the Antwerps district because of its explosiveness and the absence of information relating to it. The only thing is: I would give millions to be there at the moment police arrived... hehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe hihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihihi hohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohohoho hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ... what a funny razzia!

 Never Underestimate the Unscrupulous Nature of Sony (21/12/1999 -- tekst: Nicolas)
Once, a guy from Sony Germany bought the "Knights Of The Underground" EP written by Rolando on U.R. famous label from Detroit, including the tune "Knights of the Jaguar".
That A&R manager just immediately wanted to licence it for a Sony compilation. But... problem was that UR strictly refuses any work and any relationship with the majors. What you have to know for understanding how far it goes is that UR means Underground Resistance, and is a symbol of integrity in the whole electronic music industry. They never accepted to be commercialized just as common music stuff since they started, back in 1990. Then... what did the Sony manager? He just covered the track note by note and made it done by another musician under the name "Jaguar". This is a sample of the email he sent to Rolando and Mike Banks (the creator of UR): "The philosophy of Underground Resistance not to cooperate with the industry is well known. Your title names like 'Message To The Majors' and the liner notes on your records are not misunderstandable. I understand that you don't want to have any relationship with companies like Sony. Nevertheless we have tried to license the track for a compilation via our vinyl partner Discomania but we did not get a response. As we don't want to be seen as guys who rip off or bootleg a well known track, we have chosen the way of rerecording the track tone by tone. Indeed the new version has lost some of the typical Detroit flavour, what makes me still prefer the original." And he pushes the dark humor saying "I still prefer the original". What a bitter and unrespectfull sense of music business. The only question is "who's next?".

 We don't want another Zero (20/12/1999 -- tekst: Nicolas)
The millenium bug works well! Will Mad max begin on January first? Nobody knows, but some already take their precautions. First: Goldie (the Jungle Master from London) which will spend New Year's eve in a bunker, somewhere in UK. Then Jérôme Bonaldi (French TV speaker, here talking on Europe 1) who also announces a travel in protected area, just the time of the new-year... or of apocalypse. Take care! Limited seats available!

 General Shabba flew away (27/11/1999 -- tekst: Nicolas)
This time, it is a very sad news. You know the ROC soundsystem? A band of Reggae & Ragga deejays and MC which has made lot of gigs for three years. R.O.C. is 5 people. One of its principal members, General Shabba deceased last week. A tragical history of heating, gas and sleep. Respected by all, Shabba had given his life to the music and particularly to Ragga. He flew away before beeing thirty. The Brussels Ragga scene cries along with Sekel, Jah Lion, Keya and Lady B. May him protects us where he is.

 CyberTheatre owned by MCM? (27/11/1999 -- tekst: Nicolas)
Last gossip in the nightlife: after beeing searching for a new owner for monthes, the notorious Cyber Theatre has been bought by MCM television. Will it be a common tv studio, or is it gonna be an event place? ... no one knows yet. Created in 1996, Cyber Theatre was supposed to be the first reel website theatre + cybercafe of a european serie... Brussels first, then Madrid, Paris, Berlin,... But the project seemed to be too expensive for the profits generated by Nirvanet (the official owner). Slowly, there was less events, and less people in the hall... less advertising... a soft disappearance... until this purchase by MCM. CyberTheatre: 4/5 Guldenvlieslaan/ la Toison d'Or - 1000 Brussels --- Additional: since then it has been a sport place, then a restaurant, and now sortof tavern (2003).
