dont forget everyone - lots of bands and two big-hearted (not bigoted) djs as well
genuinely gutted about missing this. However, I shall TRY and have fun at ATP regardless.
where's everyone going/meeting up?
at Claire's house whilst she's off gallivanting with her fancy chalet mates
but it's bloody cold in my flat so I wouldn't recommend it ;) Help yourself to the random bottles of Breezer in the fridge left over from our housewarming!
Bacardi breezers? Wow, sounds like my idea of heaven!
just to see you Fellalady!
see my neighbours SCL and Fells so we can bitch about the bus routes and fall down dead-drunk on cheap beer
I'm a lot older than when I last saw you. I've gone grey now.
We won't be able to take the piss out of the DJ's very easily at the luminaire they tuck them out of the way in a little box :o(
ah but the BANDS can, so if you have something abusive you wish to pass on then i'm sure if you give a note to the bassist or something then they can give it to the DJs.
nowhere - you'll all come straight to my club and spend ALL your money on the bar there. WON'T YOU?
i want to go to the cinema first though. and is it a late one? kilburn could be a pain to get back to tottenham from...
dragging Marilyninthesky with me too! And a couple of friends from Uni!
for everything - I intend to play anything that Bamos doesn't - does that make any sense?
to you both on Saturday yes perfect sense!
Just you try and stop me.
Oh no wait, I wont cos i don't live in London :(
There are so many of you down there you could just hire a bus to visit shef...
Everyone, my 21st May 2007. Sheffield, Corporation Wednesday, School Disco Night :D
Commandercool, sadpunk AND thewarn are coming down for Friday night, and they don't live in London. You're just lazy ;)
You've got to come down on Jan 28th at the very least. I've heard there's a big party of fun happening down here. Oh yes.
yay! I didn't know that. I'll be there, of course, hopefully I'll have stopped being ill by then.
depends when my exams and stuff fall...
depending how late they go on for.
sound really shit to me
but bamos is going down tomorrow instead, or so he tells me.
Hands On Heads have sadly pulled out as one of them is going to be "away".
But fear not, as they have been replaced by the mighty boy/girl drum-machine-and-shouting act that is LEVELLOAD. so that's ok then.
come dressed as a monster, please.
my normal face do?
Yes, you can deffo come.
literally just exploded with laughter at that, you comedy bastard you. I've got to go for a fag to calm myself down...
his age, not his post count!
do we all have to have fake usernames today? I can't really be bothered...
this is not Droptones.
i guessed who this might be straight away.
nerd alarm go off? :)
I'll hold my hands up to ROFLcopter!
I'm shadyadie. Sorry guys!
I look forward to seeing you on Friday. I need to have a 'business' talk with you...
That was the last time. I'll stay as bobbygeorge now.
spilt something on your teflon slacks Grinders?
it would have slid straight off Teflon slacks, surely?
It's a nice mohair blend
what's your excuse?
What did he order?
He was playing. I shook his hand.
remember - I think like I write.....
PS - I am NOT gay4AlanMcGee, nor am i gay for alan mcgee
if he'd patted your arm affectionately, as he did with me.
'There there little girl, I'll play some nice indie for you. Coochy-coochy-coo'
That may be the best Alan McGee impression of all time right there
your catchphrase for friday night.
if you can avoid sexual harassment charges, i'll shout you a pint.
I'm going to wear a tie on Friday
Approach middle-age with confidence ;-)
going to wear it now did I cheeky
Have I set a trend?
a country squire look - couldn't get away with a skinny tie when yr my size!
like you'd stolen a Sylvanian Families wardrobe.
the tails always broke off straight away though, and you could never get the bows tied neatly again.
I had that trouble as well! Bloody tiny squirrel bastard families...
Oh, hang on. I've written this post as my sister. Honest.
can someone explain it to me what a Sylvanian family is - is it owt to do with Japan?
creature-type figures that young girls played with back in the day. Song on the advert threatened to break into the saxophone break from Tina Turner's mega-hit, 'The Best', but never quite got there...
they are girls toys. Little nuclear families of woodland creatures in rustic clothing. You could also get houses, shops etc. for them, including a windmill, a barge, a bakery, a mansion house. I have to admit, I think I had about 100 of them.
for some reason (insert smiling/winking but none flirting emoticon) HTMLcopter
if it wasn't for Sylvanian Families I'd be an aggressive hardcore bitch!
Council Estate Set - it was great but then it set fire to itself after daubing paint everywhere and trying to stab me once I'd swtiched the light out - my mum got fed up of seeing burnt out matchbox cars everywhere and kerbcrawling SpaceLego men being caught with their plastic legs down
a shitload of baby sylvanians work really well as shotgun-style ammo for nerf guns. Fact.
I have a feeling that will come in handy someday.
Right. I've done some surveying. We should meet for drinks at one of the many boozers on Kilburn High Road, because that's where the venue is. My survey revealed The Old Bell or The Good Ship.
Anyone been in these, and don't mind them? Anyone except Theo, who has an aversion to every pub in the world, obviously.
So. I'll be in one of these at 7ish or something, before me and Prole go and learn how to DJ.
now I'm a Deejay, just like my mobile disco heroes - yeah 7-ish seems good I reckon deffo -well done Bammy - Adie have given me some tips as well!
god will someone tell me what school was like as its clear I never attended one ever!
When I read books I mouth the words silently with a really gormless face following each word earnestly with my index finger - and of course I only read Harry Potter and Puddle of Mudd
okey, may be there then... at least for one or two.
a little bit nervous. I need a wee.
That's a pub. Me and Prole will be there from 7ish. Possibly. We will leave early though, so we can get to the Luminaire, just up the road, for when it opens.
i will be there.
i may be there for 7. however, that's only if i go out straight from work. If i go home first i'll be much later than.
it's tonight, omg. i hope i can find my records.
Looking forward to meeting you and hearing you play!
I will have been drinking since 1pm, probably up until when I meet you guys. I have also had a haircut. TRUE FACT ROFL.
I want to drink since 1
not the age.
wot time you go tonite bg?
What about you?
the quickest and easiest way to get to The Luminaire from Islington? Please? Thank you.
How much cut off?
I look a bit less like a girl now.
Have I just crossed the line?
Have I zxcvbnm? You should know!
be there about 8 I think
I can't find Kilburn on my tube map. Where is it? I'll be there about 7.30 ish.
I've got it. I've only got a zone 1 and 2 card and this looks far away. What do I do? Do I have to buy a separate ticket?
that'll be fine.
Kilburn is still in Zone 2 I think
.. has very detailed address/bus routes/tube stations/times/maps...
for about 6 easily, if anyone else was there. I'm going straight from work.
Bob g - I'm flattered.
I invited the whole night bus to my house last night.
how one can plye one with Italian spnoge alcohol stuff
was anyone at my house last night playing strip poker
nutter! Fun last night then!
through your front door.
yes you are funny. But like 20 randoms were getting naked in my vety small bedroom amazing. Swedes, russians, and a liverpudlian who had curly hair.
I need drunken support because I'm going to be wasted by 7 at this rate. I am also very tired - the alcohol is having a magnified effect on me.
i just handed in a dissertation about the repression of theatre during the fucking 80s. i have not been to bed, I went to this free place in tottenham court road then had a party and oh jesus anyone want to meet in pub now?
and the wolrd appears to be a dimly lit place!
was the power which controlled your drunkenness. In which case, you're in trouble...
i have this white gunk it it ew
I am in trouble aren't I?
why did youi invite back the whole nightbus mazintheskaz - on the off chance one of them might be famous? that's what I would do
i just wanted thier oyster cards
if i go straight from work or not.
if straight from work - i'll be there for 7ish
if not - prob about 8.
hannah - how the hell are you getting there? buses or tube? it's either bus to camden and another to kilburn or tube to green park then all the way back out again...
i saw you last night!
and asked if you wanted some drugs ops
it wasn't you
it was me indeed.
sorry i disappeared without saying bye - my mate's handbag got nicked so we ended up leaving rather sharpish.
top night though.
according to tfl we can get the hammersmith line from Kings cross then Jubilee line.
wants to meet for a pleasant pub lunch hmm?!
well hannah love call me and wake me up around 4ish i need slep x
babe! 4 o'clock I'll call you xxx
but am at nasty work and am poorly - I might malfunction tonight and play nothing but Employment by the Kaiser chefs
play Clor for me!
and practically falling asleep at my desk.
3 gigs in a row + awful work = x-| zzzzz
who's to blame?
lets all blame Kev!
might have to pack some beer for the trip then...
! work is dull especially in Brixton though i enjoyed watching a skeletal woman pretending she wasnt buying crack off a sinister man in a hoodie and cap - what did people think they were doing - discussing architecture? junkies eh - still at least they have something to do inbetween now and their pauper's grave
On a happy note I have decided what to play tonight and it will all be trancendental or something!
prole! Is random coming tonight?! Please say yes *fingers crossed*
violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes fugazi violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes violent femmes.
a bottle of pop!
that 'Alian' - I will play the exact set that Alan mcgee did the other night. But at ROFLrpm..
Random is coming indeed hannah!
that Violent Femmes nonsense on my shift Eddkevvy!
hannah what time are you getting there and also is everyone meeting at the Good SHip?!?!?!?!?
be there about 8 at the Good Ship.
not even if i promise to do my special Blister dance?
... that 'blister in the sun' and one or two other tracks from that album are on cds in my record bag.
but i have to find my record bag first.
which is somewhere in kilburn.
by 7:30 ish. Can you play Lovesick by Skyscraper please Bamos? Ta.
I'm only going to play indie smuggo songs that I'll mouth the words to knowingly whilst everyone walks to the bar and the dancefloor is deserted -that's right I'm going to play Fuck Forever. Forever.
I can't wait to see you dj tonight!
I'm not as populist as Bammers but I promise not to be gash - anything from about 1966 to now is my remit
my first LOL.
the bands are on then its us I think -proper post pub disco type thing - adie and her music partner are dj-ing as well so I think we are all mucking in - am not 100% sure what the 'SP' is jsut yet
All i know is that I will be playing nothing by the Happy Mondays.factX10
Maybe a bit of Stone Roses instead then!
Loaded - Primal Scream
Step On - Mondays
Debaser - Pixies
Blister in the Sun - v.Femmes
Fools Gold -S.Roses
Tis Chamring Man -Smiths
these records are banned from my turntable - overkilL!!!
so you're not ruling out mr brightside as an Emergency Tune then?
will you play some Dolly Parton? I'm listening to Jolene now, that'd fill the dancefloor!
I'd be there straight away - either Jolene or 9to5!! Please
i will be wearing a white fountains of wayne t-shirt and looking stressed.
version of Jolene
I'm off now so see you in the pub?!
I think I'm the first back.
Fucking hiccups. Was good to see EVERYONE again. Rah!
i feel like getting tanked up with internet people again.
Friday night was fabulous. I'm not going to go into how ace everybody is, because that would get a bit tiring. But everyone is brilliant.
Particular highlights included: playing name that tune on the kazoo. How the FUCK Random got CC's rendition of 100% I will never know. Inspired.
Miserabli. No more need be said. I fingered his belly button. Nice.
Sadpunk's knowledge of the Terrorvision back catalogue.
Going back to Fulham. For some reason.
And many more...whatever.
Bands - Levelload were really, really good. Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was very surprised, and really enjoyed what they did. Although putting a pretty Asian girl on bass is always a winner, let's be honest.
The Patty WInters Show - I'm sorry, I just don't get it.
Ladyfuzz - the sound was terrible, but I do really love that band. I think she might be the best frontperson in the bizz, and 'Monsters' is a fucking class tune. I love her. Real love. I've got her phonenumber. She touched me. I'm off for a lie down
The DJ's - fucking superb. Apart from the fact we were craptastic. I love Prole. If anyone wants to book us, please go ahead, because we are fun. One day women in bands will write songs about us. We're the male Queens of Noize.
I also met Toby from Transgressive, who's famous and stuff. So there.
Great night though everyone, thankyou very much.
Patty winters - erm...
I had an ace night, was kind of a weird one but anything that's DiSers + Party = FUN X 10000000000
Miserabli is the greatest drunk ever. And commandcool was indeed cool.
WHY??? although I am grateful for nonce squirrel's hospitality.
s rendition of 100%. Loser. Oh! How do I know? Um... he told me. BobbyGs attempt to breakdance resulting in him looking like a mournful spinning tortoise was my highlight.
Thankyou for sending the funniest text message I've ever seen on Saturday morning xx
you entirely for the Fulham thing. Rather than forcing me to the bus stop, off you go piling into some random taxi, where I have to follow. It's all your fault. That train journey back on Saturday morning hurt.
SHOULD WE, LIKE, GET THE BUS NOW?
but you were having none of it.
speculating on BobbyGs penis size.
What was the outcome?
I liked how they closed the bar because there were too many pissed people. Kind of like closing a prison because there are too many criminals...
SMEAR ME GARDEN WITH DIAMOND.
I did wonder why we were all leaving an hour earlier than we should have.
kilburn to tottenham is a long expensive way.
I worked out where i know the barmaid in the good ship from...
i was just browsing when i was bored at work the other day, ok??
Take the fifth, okay? It's for the best. ;-)
what are you on about?
It's the phrase used by Yanks to refer to keeping silent!
thanks - now i feel like i've learned something today. result!
i believe her name was sonia. i liked her until she started singing a smiths song at me.
the other one who was american. i was a bit drunk when i came in and having a nice natter with her, so actually said *do i know you from somewhere?* at which point her face turned to stone and i realised what i had done. and ran away.
the blonde one was indeed crazy.
he was just scared cos he took over Â£200 in half an hour.
200 quid in half and hour!
*collectively high fives DiSers*
considering we had, wot, less than 50 people there at that point?
so that's not bad, i reckon.
still, they could've taken more!!!!!
50 people buying 60 drinks in 30 minutes? God it's like everyone bought a drink each. How unlikely...
... no, guntrip had GONE by this point. to club NMweE.
Don't spoil my in-joke, Daniel-baiting, Shades! Bah! :-(
i got there, stood in the fucking QUEUE for about 40 minutes when it wasn't even THAT busy inside, ended up having to talk to some irritating fucking UCL students, missed about half of stellastarr*'s set and then went on to endure DJ "skillz" of the level that frankly made me wish I was back at the Borderline listening to Baldy McGee play The Greatest Hits That Alan McGee Released 1985-2000.
If Stellastarr* hadn't been ace, would've been a wasted trip.
Hannah82 and I did spend Â£20 on shots between us, in the space of about.. er.. 10 minutes :|
you *finger pointing*
i had a great GREAT time. very sad I had to leave before you guys got to do your DJ thang, but such is love.
i especially loved the Â£4.50 shots I was buying at the bar.
Levelload - ?
Patty Winters - ?
Ladyfuzz - ?
you lot - fantastic!
Dave & myself ended up stumbling into a Greek bar which appeared to be hosting a private party. Why they let us have 'one for the road' I'll never know
still pretending to be a catfish?
Maybe that's why. The greeks love a good catfish.
i moved onto dogfish (a superior fish altogether)
i moved onto dogfish a superior fish
Well, have you?
I recall nothing about dogfish
was being Dr. Zoidberg from Futurama?
favourite moments was your mate getting out of the taxi and realising he was in Dalston not Ealing...
Did you and Darcy evilly get him to split a cab fair with you to a place he didn't want to go to?
No idea why we got in your cab, not exactly on the way to Ealing! We payed Â£30 for another taxi for which I provided the princely sum of Â£2.50 until it was pointed out that it was a little more.
you donated something unlike some!
Thanks very much guys, you did wonders with the decks and rounded off the night rather acely. Cheers everyone for coming down, and see you next time innit!
You mean like Prole's 30 seconds of silence while he attempted to find the 'on' switch?
and to think my DJ training was excellent too.
"this is the volume switch for the decks. this is the volume for the cds. these's are, like, bass and treble and stuff. and DON'T PUSH THIS BUTTON! right, have fun. [buggers off]"
this night was shit because I wasn't there. </bitterness>
I had to go a bit early and just presumed I missed a triumphant late entrance. Up the Darce!
does THIS friday ngiht (sic) only happen in Kilburn?
if so, it means we're going to see Vatican DC.
which is Chris from Menswe@r's band.
that??! I wanna go.
I really did brain damage you, didn't I?
I'm up for another night out!
as I don't think I'll be around for either. I'm visiting Manchester.
I won't enjoy without you there!
to buy you shots. I remembered buying you that double vodka when he was telling me about it. That probably helped to make them close the bar! :-D
How much did I drink on Friday?! 2 Dolly Parton shots a double from you! ANd I bought loads too!
at one point as well.
there wasn't was there?!
then there probably was.
when you were cleaning the sick out of your shoes. Bleurgh to tequila.
a vague memory now that its been mentioned!
one of the uninitiated, i see...
tequila is fantastic. its effect on keveddies is somewhat akin to rocket fuel being put into the petrol tank of an ageing ford fiesta...
but Friday night was FUN. I liked the kazoo, the silly dancing, and even having lots of stupid boys in my house destroying my internet reputation. I have kept Sadpunk's hairgel as a souvenir. Patty Winters distressed me.
what's everyone's problem with patty winters show?
is that I always think he's Sean and consequently get blank looks when I talk to him... I'm afraid I didn't love them either, they had nothing to catch me up and make me wanna tap my toes.. I really liked that first band and was way to pissed for the last.
