Tracey Emin: What I liked best about the club was Michael

The Colony Room was a very eccentric place to hang out, quite mad. I would go there when pubs didn't open all day – it was great because it would be open all afternoon.

How do I look?: Brix Smith-Start, stylist & fashion buyer, 47

Fashion is an incredibly powerful tool. It can change the way you feel about yourself and the way people react to you. It's important to have your own individual style, to absorb inspirations from trends, and to always be creative – to play and test the boundaries. Style changes with age – there are certain things which cease to be appropriate as you get older.

Does the Female Ennuch still have balls?

It turned society upside down in 1970 and kick-started the women’s movement. But can The Female Eunuch deliver any important life lessons today? First-time reader Alice Jones gives her verdict

Leading article: Auld enemies

Why do Scots, or at least some of them, still feel they have to do it – define their identity oppositionally? The opposition, of course, is to perfidious Albion, a trait just highlighted by the case of an Aberdeen shop selling "Anyone But England" World Cup T-shirts. It was visited by the police on the grounds of potential racism, or at least, potential for causing a disturbance, which of course is a nonsense.

The Plastiscines, Shepherds Bush Empire, London

Gadget of the week - Electronic Rock Guitar Shirt (£18)

Take one part band T-shirt, two parts Rock Band, add a splash of air guitar and you get this, an electric guitar housed in the cotton confines of a T-shirt. There's a mini amp attached to the hem and once it's turned on, all the sartorial strummer needs to do is hit the buttons on the neck – each represents a major chord. They're all recorded from a real electric guitar, and by using the magnetic pick that the shirt comes with you can try playing your favourite rock anthems, or creating something new. No need to ask how loud the amp goes up to (11, duh) but rest assured – the electrical components can be removed so you can wash the T-shirt between gigs. Phew. Thinkgeek.com
