The respected rockers claim the music simulation game stops young people from practising real instruments. Their opposition comes just a day before The Beatles: Rock Band title is released. Mason said: it irritates me having watched my kids do it. if they spent as much time practising guitar as learning how to press buttons theyd be damn good by now. by mark blunden Rockers nofansof theBand Seized: the Hertford Street buildings read1,ooosofpubandrestaurant reviewsandbookonlineat thisislondon.co.uk/lite Eattonight ...mezze KEnza This subterranean place is a hidden gem in the courtyards round the side of Devonshire square, not far from Liverpool street. When you descend into here it actually feels like walking down the steps of a Tube station, but once inside its all middle eastern magic. spoil yourself rotten with plates of baba ghanoush (mashed and deliciously seasoned aubergine, 5.50), caboose pastries (5.25), halloumi with chilli jam (6.50) or soujoc sausages (6.50). 10 Devonshire Square, EC2 (020 7929 5533) GEm Or hOW about going for some Kurdish varieties of mezeler? This charming little place in the heart of islington is cheap and cheerful and perfect for Kurdish cookery connoisseurs. They have authentic little dishes like patlican soslu (3) -- fried aubergines covered in their own special tomato sauce, or kisir (2.75), a salad of leaves, wheat, spring onion, chilli and spices. Just do try and leave room for the main course afterwards. 265 Upper Street, N1 (020 7359 0405) Chris Beanland squat fun in the 50m mansions of Mayfair... SQUATTERS are occupying two six-storey buildings in the heart of Mayfair worth a total 50m. The former Mexican embassy in Hertford Street and a building next door have been taken over by an artists collective known as The Oubliette. Inside there is no typical squat- ter squalor -- they have designer chairs and a coffee table, a com- puter, laptops and works of art on the walls. Spokesman Dan Simon said all sorts of alternative groups, from visual artists to burlesque acts, are invited to show their work, adding: If it doesnt involve vandalising the building wed love to hear from you. The group took control of the two 20-room properties three weeks ago, after squatting in former schools near Waterloo and Oxford Street. New Zealander Mr Simon, who has squatted in London for eight years, added: It was revolting when we came in. We bring the property back into functionality and stop it falling into dereliction. He said four people live in one of the buildings, while the other is occupied by three. Weve tried to negotiate with the buildings agents, he added. They have been empty since 2004, its prime real estate. He said the owners are taking legal action to evict the squatters, but they wont leave without a fight.
