Death of an Informer

Sad to report that the free listings magazine The Informer is no longer gracing the shelves of North East libraries, pubs, tourist offices and, of course, a coffee table near you. The magazine, edited by Peter Dixon, ran for 136 monthly issues before lack of advertising meant it was time to call "Time gentlemen please".
So, no longer will discerning readers be able to catch up on gigs across the genres, enjoy Joe Palooka's editorial or the Bebop Spoken Here column, written initially by myself and latterly by Russell, but fish and chips will never taste the same again.
RIP.
Lance.
