    I'm still fuming about the Spastics Society changing its' name to Scope. PC gone mad!

    I heard they’re renaming the Ivor Davies, the Ivor Novello has been mentioned. Nobody ever thought of that name change before

    Errrr...off the top of my head I'd say both were extremely weak attempt at making music (pretty much the same as 'thrash'). Neither genres to me (and it is only myself that I am speaking on behalf of, of course) sound anywhere near musical enough to grab my attention.

    So when I went to hip hop concerts and festivals, old people were going for hip op surgeries? How different things are for the age groups!

    I know a few unusual ones;
    Tigers Head and Tigers Tail: 2 pubs on opposite sides of a junction in Lewisham. alwayus made me wonder which was there first!
    Ship and Shovel on the A13: A street corner pub of what used to be rows of terraced houses (bit like strangetown) now all that's left is the pub in the middle of nowhere
    Cow and Snuffers
    The Ely: only because it was in Salisbury road
    Frog and Nightgown: On the Old Kent Road, used to have a licence till 3 Am when pubs normally closed at 11 PM
    The Moon under water: Leicester Square. (Several Wetherspoon pubs in London have moon references.)
    The Half moon: Bow Road East End. roughly half way between two other pubs The full moon and the New moon. (Spoons pub but the other 2 aren't)
    The knights Templar: Fleet St
    The Beaten Docket: Belfast (Losing betting slip)

    I'm sure there are lots more if I could only think of them.

    I never noticed that the Half Moon was called that because if the Full Moon and the New Moon. Never thought I would find a fact about one of my locals on this website
