Bookable on the internet

Hope it helps..

I thought the train station was called Waverly?

In the past I've used hotelconnect.co.uk and found them to be quite good. AFAIK you will find a few hotels around the Lothian Rd for £60 per room. The Caledonian is just down the road from the Venue.

I've booked into the Express Holiday Inn but will miss Breakkie as my flight home is 7am :( I have to work on the Monday morning.

Mercury Rev in Belfast on the Tuesday though :D

Hope to be able to meet up with some fans as I haven't seen TD live since a London gig in the Early 80's

Which is the contrast?
The Express Holiday Inn with The Caledonian
TD from the 80's with TD from the 00's
TD with Mercury Rev?

I'm bringing my Young Cousin who has just become turned on by Music and electronic music to be specific so it's great for me to point him in the direction of classics like Encore, Hyperborea, Ricochet, Atem and rubycon etc.

I'm sure the gig will be interesting and not in the slightest way comparable to the last time I saw them.......OMFG loud and crazy guitar from Edgar Froese....Hammersmith Odeon as far as I remember.

Premier Inn or Travelodges are always good but can be pretty expensive.
I have previously stayed at the one at Newhaven near Leith but alternatively there are dozens of hotels and B&Bs nearby.
