WELCOME, FRIEND!

The Punchary, Al Mansoura

The Punchary- but what is it? An establishment that turns out bespoke metal pressings, an unsubtle martial arts centre, or just somwhere to have your burst tyre patched? I suspect the last. But it is still a good addition to the lexicon.

Always good to check first

Norly wasn't playing. Red at first thought he was but then found he wasn't, because of Eid al Adha. But Melrose was singing in CityMax al Barsha, and Golden Star were playing in Seaview, so a good night was had. Can't be sure, but Mel's drummer seemed familiar from a million years ago in York? Maybe someone can confirm.
