You may already know that the new regulations concerning public entertainment licenses will damage the music scene in Britain beyond repair. Essentially, while the overhaul will loosen up Britain's pub hours (the sweetener), any kind of public performance will be regulated to within an inch of it's life (the aftertaste). Venues already have to possess a live licence for a band to play, or to play any kind of recorded music to an audience (even house parties & the like will theoretically have to be licensed, & can be shut down instantaniously without one), but now the individual must have (purchase & be granted) one as well or they can be fined up to £20,000. It's just one more problem for smaller venues to deal with and will certainly make them think twice about having live music at all. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. There isn't one of us that this ruling wont affect.
Bye bye local music scene..
