It'll be loats of fun, see?
Because we're Pocus Whiteface, y'see? It was for New Year's but we tested them out the gig before and discovered they were almost impossible to wear and play with so we were happy to leave them on the floor after the New Year gig!
Theo, I hope to be there.
If I get more sick than I already am after trundling to the MIDDLE OF FUCKING NOWHERE to attend Rich's birthday drinks tonight though, I may have to just stay in and hug the radiator instead.
Anyone would think you lived in a Dorset village and walked everywhere.
That's still Zone 2!!!
I missed 'Dave Berry's Monster Mash up' or whatever it was called during Freshers week to go and see Spellbound.
It's actually really awkward to get to from East London if you're able to ride a bike or take a cab, even though it logically shouldn't be.
Hey the Luminaire's apparently no further north than the Barfly but that's not really the point is it?
who isn't "able" to get a cab?
also: it's basically two tube trains from the east end. moany moany moan moan.
Cabs are expensive.
Anyway, what's wrong with central, eh? Eh?
given that Rich has to get back to Borehamwood afterwards.
ps I might come tomorrow.
Though Soho's probably much of a muchness if you're comparing Covent Garden to Turnpike Lane, surely? Old street isn't really my idea of central either, though the 271 probably gets there about as quick as the 8 does.
it's not cause of you though, it's cause of action beat.
You should call the whole thing off
What time am I on, Theosaurus?
We're on at 5.30.
Luckily I mailed myself the info from hotmail this week. Is it still as follows?

We're playing RoTa on Saturday 7th February Afternoon - FREE
Yeah, RoTa. FREE and in the afternoon, 4pm 'til 8pm so you can still go off and party hard later. See below for the full details.
Date: Saturday 7th February, 2009
Venue: Notting Hill Arts Club
RoTa MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/rotaclub
Okay, we're putting this one ourselves with iShotTheDeputy.com.
We've got four bands for you playing between 4pm and 8pm and it's FREE to get in. Between the bands music will be provided by iShotTheDeputy and Boy Howdy from Hired Geeks and Oroku Saki.
Headlining are the amazing Action Beat who have anything from 6-9 members and hail from Milton Keynes. According to their MySpace they sound like, "Raping de-tuned guitars. Abusing old drum kits. Molesting golden Basses. Dean Gaffney," or maybe Dean Gaffney once descrbed them as sounding like, "Raping de-tuned guitars. Abusing old drum kits. Molesting golden Basses." There's definitely some of that and there are also some great tunes that Sonic Youth would be proud to own. They'll be fantastic in any case.

Before them will be the rock antithesis in terms of instrumentation, the two-pice that is Jack Mountain. Jack Mountain's music varies from Smog-like, fuzzed up folky numbers, to Hot Snakes style garage rock noise. He'll have Bow Howdy on drums so we're expecting a set that leans towards the latter. All Jack Mountain's music is free and there are four albums to download if you've the time. Alternatively you can see what he's got to give away at the gig because the CDs are professional stuff.

Then it's us, Pocus Whiteface. You know what we sound like.
Stairs to Korea is a new one-man outfit from singer in Horsebox which means he has 'pedigree' and, like with dogs, pedigree counts for a lot in music. The performance apparently utilises, "a guitar-synth, harmoniser and backing track". There was only one track to listen to on MySpace and that sounded pleasingly like Super Furry Animals.

Did we mention it was FREE already? Yeah, probably...
can i DJ?
was gonna try get there for 5 but can get there earlier maybe?
i'll aim to get to for quarter to 5 then
seeing as it's probable i'll take the wrong exit from the tube station, wander the wrong way for a few minutes then go "haaang on a minute"
but may be unable to do so due to soundchecking on the other side of London :(
It's pretty much accepted behaviour.
AND I'M COMING!
If I'd've seen this earlier I'd be en route. I haven't showered or eaten or dressed or any of that kind of stuff yet. How deeply rubbish.
