T IN THE PARK SPECIAL 2 (published 3 August 2002)
Hot an' hoachin' wi talent

Once again the Reckless has selflessly went and gone and had a great time at the annual Let's Get Pished and Stoned fest they call T in the Park.

This year we can triumphantly declare that The Hives were without doubt the best thing since....well anything. They blew us away with a show only Green Day came close to topping.

Oh, and also honourable mentions to Mull Historical Society and Portugese punks, The Parkinsons, who also made us rock and laugh heartily. Oh yes. The Chemical Brothers were shite in a bath.

Pub chain Wetherspoons have taken on giant Meerkats to guard their premises due to a shortage of human type bouncers.

A spokesman for the company, Flaarty Bagsmetch, said yesterday, 'These guys are good. I'm all for scientific mutations if they come up with fellas like this. They're alert, cute and cheap. More huge rodents please.'
