Blues Club Theft
31st March 2005

Geoff Achison


The very well known Bottleneck Blues Club host to some of the finest contemporary blues artistes playing around the world today was the victim of some mean-minded, greedy little simpleton's thieving ways when 300 quid was stolen from the Club's cash box this week

During one of the best gigs of the year - Geoff Achison and The Souldiggers - the club was packed with members and guests when the cash went missing. John Adams, proprietor and highly respected Blues Promoter, impresario and producer said "only one thing soured last night for me.....unfortunately someone nicked over 300 from the cash box.....thankfully I had money with me which enabled me to pay everybody but what a shame". He went on to say "My fault.....I must be more careful". To accept this so philosophically is yet another sign of these times that we now live in when the victim of crime, not the perpetrator, accepts the loss as his fault. What kind of justice is that?
