Ah, youthful innocence!
Still a great song.
and i'll be drunk 1000 more
to be the man that's been drunk
two thousand times and feel down the stair
DOO DOO DOO DOO
Oh, halcyon days (much shitting).
wrong board? Ban request.
Is this really music we're talking about? ;-)
a friend of mine went to see them at the Apollo a couple of years back. Tried to make me go but I just couldn't face it.
This is Red Berry Joy Town,this is clown around town.
One of the weekend night clubs upstairs at Jabez in Manchester used to play Size of a Cow, Dizzy and Madness song (I think) one after another EVERY WEEK, in the same order at pretty much the same time.
In fact I seem to remember most Indie DJs playing pretty much the same set every week in Manchester clubs. Clubs that tried to be different seemed to die on their arses.
Wonder Stuff, Kingmaker, Thousand Yard Stare, etc?
Little Grebo, if you will.
I think it was something to do with dreadlocks and not having a wash.
I'm not sure Thousand Yard Stare really count in that scene though. So I made a very poor waterbird pun to cover my tracks.
True. Thousand Yard Stare were in it because I remember they had the violinist from Wonder Stuff on 0-0 AET and so were irrevocably linked to that scene for me. His son was in the year above me at secondary school and used to get loads of Wonder Stuff, er, stuff to give away.
I wish I had a copy of the Thousand Yard Stare album still :(
Does that mean a PWEI fan with a mohican would be a Great Crested Grebo?
I just remember it seeming an unlikely number of times of being drunk to reach when I first heard it.
but say you got drunk approx 3 times a week for the 3 years you were at uni, that's what like 468 times? I reckon I've only been drunk approx 500 times. Theo, I think you might have a problem x
I have definitely been drunk 1000 times.
plus, I did a four year degree. I reckon I'm pushing the 2K mark now.
I need to invest in some milk thistle
Oi, hatfuck! Acknowledge my post.
Most of my mates got drunk a good 5 times a week, I'd say.
Why did you delete me from Facebook? :(
my estimates reveal that I'm not quite there... yet. Now I never went to university but have been drinking since the age of 13 and I'm currently 22. Based on the fact I do get drunk quite a lot, 1000 times is A LOT of times, unless you happen to be in your 30's, I guess :)
If they got drunk EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR. YOu mong.
you stupid cock
But if you go with over the limit for driving I reckon I must've been fairly near 1000 during my (three year) degree. I probably had about 21 days where I didn't drink at all in my first year, two weeks of which were after an operation. Good times. (Not for my liver).
and playing it all the time thinking I was so goddamn cool, I was.
Still a great album.
But when I sort it out or whatever (don't hold your breath) I'll definitely give you a copy.
It's the only one I have so Shine Too is very welcome :-D
and having a fine old time listening to some of them.
I'm currently listening to The Wannadies, oh man, that reminds me of a brilliant summer :-D
That was a fun gig.
but only hungover about 600 times, so it's all win for me!
And what the shitting fuck have Thousand Yard Stare got to do with this?
I'll tell you what the scene was called - bloody brilliant, that's what
0-0 AET is very Wonder Stuff, isn't it?
I've already fast forwaded a decade and am listening to Soulwax's 'muchagainsteveryone'sadvice' album and loving it.
there is no 'this' in the mobile site, aorry
Doesn't seem unreasonable to get to 1000 by the aqe of 30, so yeah, I probably have.
everyone in this thread has been a cunt. There's no way any of you have been drunk 1000 times*. Shut the fuck up.
*assuming there are no over-40s/alcohlouics/ex-holics here.
1000 times = once a week for 20 years = a couple of times a week for 10 years.
Have a few bevvies when you're 16 or so. Go to uni at 18 or so. Live a relatively normal 20s, going out once or twice a week at the least. Get to somewhere in your 30s. "Know that I've been drunk 1000 times". Simples.
I'm not even lowering the bar to a tipsy 2 pints drink-drive level of "drunk". I'm thinking something like 4/5 pints of decent ~5% beer, or so. Not wasted, but pretty much drunk by most peoples descriptions, shirley?
