Charlatan 16-jan-04: review JL (part 1)

It is friday. An atmosphere of anticipation and wonder hangs over the great city of Ghent and its many towers and spires. The camera slowly zooms in on a club called "Charlatan" as the source of this anticipation becomes clear.

For those that have read the Discworld novels of Terry Pratchett, I think there was a small imp inside drumming his little demonic heart out. But soon, it was blissfully over, and there appeared on the stage those Masters of Monki Punk, the Lords of the Stage, The Marquis of Mesmeration:
