It's a Friday, it's not at Frog. What else do you want??
Don't answer that.
just to spill Ribena on your sta prests
I am in credit with you so if you come on weds I will ahve two credit points fomr you!
I don't think I'm going to be able to come, sorry. I will try though.
allowed to plug on the social board 'cos he's a regular?
I'm just letting my nearest and dearest know first. That's you guys. :D
Or I'll resurrect the Alex Mack thread.
And by the way - is it really possible to swim through a pool of money a la Scrooge McDuck??
Be like that.
I think someone has to add this to the listings thing, if it's not in my calender, IT DOESN'T HAPPEN.
The Longcut are playing that night too and I think I am going to that.
No - it's been confirmed. You're not going to that.
to go to The Luminaire instead.
Is that the public generally...?
Pagan Wanderer Lu is playing! Curses! The people's choice. Is he really cute and fluffy or just a better musician?
so sorry about that.
can be discussed here:
Or should I say:
PAGAN WANDERER LU!
which is actually crap. Because you know if one was the day after the other I'd have stuck around for the Fog Band.
you've played in London before, so everyone must have already seen you.
But only a few from here have seen us. What time are you on?
In Aberystwyth everyone goes to every gig.
what time I'm on. Ask shadyadie.
but that depends whether or not i get a 4th band to play.
You've already pledged allegiance! (See earlier post)
should help you decide
That's tough talkin'!
Cos that has another tune...
though I have seen the fog band already, and I haven't seen pagan wanderer lu. I can't decide. Maybe I'll go to neither :P
Come see The Longcut, myself and accidental are going.
I won't feel so desperately depressed and wounded by lack of my BEAUTIFUL DiS FRIENDS WHO I CARE SO MUCH ABOUT that way.
If so, I'll come and see The Fog Band first.
you were in the Fog Band.
I thought maybe you had some gimmick where you were all called Bobby...
can you download this one?
Buy it! It's the least you can do! ;-)
See - I'm a man of the people. Join me.
time are you on?
and where is this place?
I'll try... I say we meet up at the venue of whoever plays last...

are near each other then? That's good.
will turn brother against brother.
The Clash of the Titans!!!
in the Red corner: with their sharp suits and angular Cramps backing Nick Cave RnR... The Fog Band!
in the Blue corner: with his array of bleeping boxes, sharp wit and electro-indie packed with 'ohrwurm hooks'... Pagan Wanderer Lu!
Which will you get drunk and forget to turn up to?
Either way - if we continue the pretense of being in conflict, we can keep this thread bumped up.
I think I've said I'll come to both. What shall I do?!
The Fog Band gig will doubtless be nought but pedestrian snooze rock. everyone should instead go to see
WORLD DOMINATION LEAGUE
PAGAN WANDERER LU (http://www.myspace.com/paganwanderlu)
electro indie songwriting majesty
and Atoms for Peace -who I've heard are good
The Bridge Gang - who are probably just like the Fog Band only miles better.
6/1/06 - be there or I'll bring back the blank thread.
maybe I could come see you there...
I'll be playing in aber again unless someone asks me to.
Come to mine, it'll be like nothing on earth.
the fog band are like five people. so if no one turns up to their gig they won't be lonely.
not like poor little solo artist me.
The PWL gig will doubtless be nought but pedestrian pseudo-80s casio-myspacery. everyone should instead go to

All of the above AMAZING bands are the original bands that restlessboy imitates in his pale tribute show entitled "Pagan Wanderer Lu".
6/1/06 - be there or I'll bring back the Alex Mack thread AND the one about Scrooge McDuck's coinage! Could you live with yourself??
I'm sure The Bridge Gang will be fed up that they are playing the same night cos at least one is a Fog Band fan!
I'm in Wales :0(
my tribute show is called 'Trapped in the Closet with BobbyGrindrod'
It reccounts my childhood where I was forced to tailor suits with my milk teeth for a callous rock singer and his band of pirates.
I love the Bridge Gang, am gonna put them on at my next night I think.
It would take 15 mins to get to the Luminaire from the Buffalo Bar if there was a handily timed train, you should try and do both!
you can get the silverlink train from highbury, no? they're sometimes a bit unreliable tho.
so this is like - after xmas and new year? that's a whole lifetime away, my friend. ask me when the hangover's gone.
I don't know Marilyn.
if it's not this Friday.
Please don't frighten me.
proberly be more frightened of you Bobby.
I'm very dull in real life.
Actually I'm pretty dull here too.
you on Bobby?
you already answered this. Well adie says I'm on at 10 so I'll try to come to yours for a bit if i can.
Only to see how shit you are obviously.
I'm mildly confused.
Friday the 6th of January.
There is also another gig on the 6th which i am playing at. So Bobby and I are competing for DiS attendees.
Obviously everyone who goes to his gig will be sorely disappointed but you can't blame the lad for trying.
the headline...woops...well I'll be at Bobby's do because I have a strange loyalty to him. Sorry restlessboy. Dam I wish there was more of me to spread around. Dang.
Finally - an ally! Thanks Marilyn. I trust you're not one of Restlessboy's spies.
I nearly got arrested once for stalking a certain person in a band in a bush in Reading.
it's friday 6th of january at the luminaire.
OMG this just like Blur vs Oasis.
Don't be scared. Would your band like to play a rock/indie night in late Febuary/ early March? It's in Putney, South-West London...
is your band very picky and ilitist these days..? ;)
I hope you get AIDS you fooker.
Oh wait, that was Noel.
*gets shit haircut and spends Â£1000 on a parka*
Please add yourself to this!
I'll go to Matalan instead
"Bobby Grindrod is unique outside of a Matalanâ€™s menâ€™s clothing catalogue"
I put myself down as 'possibly' for both.
Bet ol Pete Waterman doesnt.
outside Duck, Son & Pinker in Bath- you looked very tired on it
I did my year 10 work experience at Duck, Son and Pinker in Swindon.
What ARE you talking about??
Mr Duck had lots of sons
but WHY are you talking about it?
What is this 'plinth' you speak of? Was it in a graveyard?
there's no 'fat chance' button.
what are the other bands like? anyone seen myspaces...
unfortunately he had to turn down the appearance with the Fog Band (they begged him) cos he was playing a much better, cooler, gig up the road where there will be celebrities and pirates and superheroes.
Me ol pal, me ol buddy! How annoying is restlessboy??? You should give im a piece of your mind!
nah, I've turded over a new leaf. Now I run over squirrels on my pushbike instead of ranting on here. Should change my name to 'Grockle-lite'
I tried loads of times to write my own blurb but it either felt tacky or came out like a particularly dull recipie book.
to come to the gig?
Try to go to mine. Just ask You and the Atom Bomb! They're fans!
It's Fortuna Pop. The 'rule' you speak of is born of a bitter rivalry between myself and retlessboy. Think of it as a tactical move..!
I'll see what I can do!
Or should I already know? I'm confused!
I heard him calling you names at break time.
Is it a Saturday/Friday?
I thought she was a made up character for the HPs website.
has it? If so this one is for Besty...
but your posts don't make a lick of sense.
was i up past 3am? no wonder i'm tired again.
you were wrong in that assumption.

THE FOG BAND
Fronted by the startlingly-monickered Bobby Grindrod, a sophisticated
sartorial throwback firmly rooted in 1962, the Fog Band are, in their
own words: "a quivering rock disgrace".Think Neon Boys
(pre-Television/Voidoids), MC5 and Captain Beefheart rolling down the
track with no breaks, about to derail, listening to early Who and
Yardbirds. Their debut single 'The Law Of The Sea' was released last
year on Purr Records.
THE SPEED OF SOUND
Quirky organ/guitar multivox combo featuring:
* Medway magus Kevin Younger, the man behind Fifty Watts of Power
* legendary singing drummer Debbie Green (Headcoatees, A-Lines)
* the mysterious James out of Baby Birkin
* indie guitar henchman Pete Momtchiloff (Heavenly, Would-Be-Goods,
Playing selections from their brand new double album Tomorrow's
World/The Mystery of the Gable End
MELODY! ROMANCE! DRAMA! CATCHINESS! HUMOUR! Just 5 words to describe
the heart-breakin', romance-makin' new old-fashioned POP sound of Mon
Fio. To which add a mean vibraphone and a singer who is so chatty that
the songs sometimes gets in the way of the jokes. Tap your toes, laugh
in the right places and realise that a vibraphone is basically a huge
Influences? All the great, genius sixties freakbeat/psych/pop acts
(Wimple Winch, Screaming Lord Sutch, Beach Boys, etc...) had one thing in
common. They wanted to sound different. It would be foolish to 'copy'
the sound of any band.
