Interview with Rik
Which Bonfire Society do you go to?
I don’t actually. I went to one Bonfire Night a few

Which newspaper do you read? The
Argus. I also get Music Week, the record dealers trade mag,
Are you pro or anti the Phoenix development?

What Lewes really doesn’t need
is… Another coffee shop… or another second-hand
From 29 September Rik will be DJing every last Friday of the
