The Music Pages

Originally, the main purpose of this website was to promote the band The Short Straw, while also providing pictures and information about other bands, namely The Stranglers during their CSE Tour of Cyprus in July of '99,  Showaddywaddy's gigs in 2000 and also to promote other bands from the Akrotiri Live music scene - especially the bands ManBitesDog and SortEd!. As The Short Straw no longer exists these pages are now simply a nostalgic and pictorial history of two superb years in Cyprus.

Some of the pages make take a while to load due to the numebr and size of the photographs, please be patient and if you are unable to view all the pictures once the page stops loading hit REFRESH and that should do the trick.
