money for M E N C A P .



   So, how do you get involved? Get
a team of four to six people together
- Monopoly veterans will already
have started grabbing people so do
it now! And then turn up at Beit
Quad on Saturday morning
(tomorrow) from 10.00am. Each
team gets a set of clues that will take
you all over London and a
collecting can. Fancy dress is
optional but highly recommended -
a large rabbit can get away with far
more than Joe Student. Each clue
relates to a street on the board of
the original. This is especially
useful if you want to win a prize.
You need points and these can be
earned by solving clues, collecting
as much money as you can (rabbits
and long legs.help!), carrying a
team mascot and finally, treasure.



   'Treasure' does not mean turning
up with a hijacked police car
number plate or Eros from
Piccadilly - be original. If you can
get an arrest warrant by haggle and
grovel without a night in the cells
or beg your way into a Fast Food
uniform you may find extra points
finding their way onto your score.



   Now I expect you want to know
what you get out of it! Well apart
from having loads of fun M E N C A P
have got a storming set of prizes
lined up for the top collectors of the
day. These include a skiing trip in
Andorra, a week at Plas Y Brenin
watersports centre and loads of
other things from C D players to
record tokens. R A G also has sets of
Sightseeing Guides (very useful for
the Great Sightseeing Challenge
aswell as getting the most out of
London) for the winning five teams.
   So, it sounds fairly easy, but there
are some complications - to keep
your team on their toes. The C C U

 The Frank & Walters,
 Radiohead, Astoria 9/10/92
 Radiohead are not, as is commonly
 believed one band. They are two.
 The first band are noisy and crap.
 The second half are mellower,
 although not totally menace-free,
 and you can hear the words. This
 might not be a very trendy
 viewpoint to hold, and probably
 makes me sound like your parents,
 but that's just'the way it is. I like
 to know what is being sung about.
 Maybe I'm too old. This second
 half sings songs like 'Creep', which
 you will have heard, and not known
 it. It is (in case you can't be
 bothered to read the review of it
 elsewhere on this page-Poddy) a
 slow smouldering anthem for the
 lovesick. I think.
    The Frank And Walters were kind
 of crazy as per usual. A l l the
 favourites were there, Michael,
 Andy James, Laurence Olivier,
 Angela Cray, and what's more,
 they threw loads of plastic toys at
 the faithful after their traditional
 slaughtering of 'Funky C o l d
 Medina'. How can you live without
 this band?
