Poke -1,170 (The C-men), known from his Airwaves chiptune radioshow (including the MSX scene episode) is to perform as a VeeJay during the internationally reknown Eurosonic pop festival. On Friday the 13th of January, he will show his VeeJaying skills in Simplon, and from what we heard he's bound to throw one or more MSX references in.

While we're at pop music news, the Dutch band LPG (of which yours truly is the manager) is to perform at the Eurosonic festival as well, whilst another MSX-related band, Dreadlock Pussy, has sad news to offer: after eight years they have decided to trhow in the towel. For those wondering, Patrick Smeets - singer of the band - contributed to numerous Parallax productions and was the main graphics designer of Future disk.
