And so it came to pass.... That's right, Saturday saw the successful launch of The Khollected Khaki Shorts on home turf (namely the "Notecave" basement at the 13th Note Cafe/Bar).
At least 75% of the artists who contributed (certainly, all the core regulars from Neil Bratchpiece, Iain D. Smith, Martin Smith to Cheesemonster and Tolywoly) were in attendance, with Agent Johnny making a surprise trip (of sorts) from Edinburgh to Glasgog fer the party....
|Stack 'em up, sell 'em on....|
Timed to coincide with Adam J. Smith's birthday the event wiz soon 'bustlin' as the psychedelic soundtrack (from the likes of Pink Floyd, Tomorrow, Klan and Love) produced the expected "Blastor!" results. 'Our Man from Pester Whailes' wiz soon groovin' in the atom heart!
|The greatest Scots. Frank Quitely (YEP!) and Agent Johnny co-exist on the same plane!|
As the afternoon wore on (and the tunes just got longer and longer) things slowly settled into a contented swill, with the occasional sale providing a necessary boost to the proceedings (in between lengthy guitar solos from the likes of The Grateful Dead, Traffic and Aguaturbia)....
|Do not be deceived! Agent Johnny is the one out of focus here....|
And before we knew it "We Love You" by The Psychedelic Furs fair lowped from the speakers, signalling the end (more or less) of the afternoon's delights. 3 hours that had long loomed on the horizon were now but a distant past....

So thanks to those who came, who saw, and who khakied! Of course, big up the 13th Note for being able to cope with all our Diva-ish demands - cartoonists, eh? What a better way to finish than this....
