I know it's early days but will this be an all ticket affair?

Just booked to fly up so want to make sure I'm not saying goodbye from the Jamaica Street pavement.

What we're going to do is give people coloured bands valid for half hour periods and we'll all change over when the buzzer goes. Kind of like what used to happen at the swimming baths.

Will there be a fun run as well?

I remember a guy burst the fun run at Barrhead swimming pool circa 1995 before I even had a shot - one of the lowest points of my life. Punctured the palm tree if memory serves.

Apparently the last ever Optimo is also, coincidentially of course, the birthday of echatio legend, the one and only..... DDK!!!!!111

He will make an appearance to this epic Optimo finale.

He wants to thank all the Optimo crew for all the memories ( from what he can remember ) and wishes both Twitch and Wilkes 'all the best' for their future endeavours.

Cheers guys, 10/10 Koresh Stars, x

Onwards and upwards, that's what I say. It's been a helluva commitment to have put in for the last 12 and a bit years. Fuck me I've had some amazing nights in there.

I'm sure I'll drag my late 30s self out for at least one more fling before the curtain comes down for the last time.

Cheers guys - it's been a blast!

the second biggest influence on my life (after j. peel)....

not only have i heard some amazing music over the years, i have met some of the most amazing people...euan, davie, mr roque, the divine ms mingo-go, MC, emma-kate, danny, d. barbarossa to name a mere handful, not to mention your good selves who, it always seemed to me, could so easily have become wankers, having all these folk telling you how great you are, but always were so friendly, gracious and generous with your time and, indeed, records (thanks!).

i shall be down at some point between now and the end..i think some of us old bastards may find the last night too much. but i have to say that it feels like the right time and the future projects sound exciting!

thanks for the lost memories Wink

Second that Cara. So many of my best friends, people who i'll know for the rest of my life, I know through Optimo.

I've been looking through photos this morning and remembering some of the amazing times. The night I first met DDK and DJEuan the people who would get me going every Sunday. Nearly freezing to death on the beach at Skye with Mingo, Sam and Canadian Graham. Barry sleeping and leaking everywhere and Cara still somehow loving him. Meeting. My Birthday when we first got Sam out. The bus back from fabric and straight to optimo with Mozza, Sam and Jazz Funk. Oh, and first meeting my soon to be wife.

Thank you all

Loved Optimo since the first day I went, Liquid Liquid played and in my ignorance, didn't have a clue who they were or the significance.

So many memories. Particularly seeing TV on the radio, The Go Team, the night that the man in black died and was celebrated and also when Twitch stopping the music and ordered an obtuse wank out the door after receiving a load of verbal. That guy was lucky to make it out alive after the crowd turned on him.

Still have my team zissou costume from Espookio.

Really has shaped an era in music for me and am happy it's coming to a graceful end.

My ears love your tunes... always.
Dave.
