So - anyone had any more thoughts on their itinerary for Friday night?
Any changes of heart/allegiance?
Already got tickets to your gig Bobby. I'm a loyal dog.
I will give you a badge on Friday night. (Does PWL have badges? Bet he doesn't)
I will recive your badge as if it was an oscar.
or Bobby for the first time. Oh well... *sigh*
Cross over... We are your friends...
YAY. I'm going to that. Sorry. He does have badges, he sent me some.
Except the triangular metal Polysics ones.
And the orange !!! one.
But that's it.
Can someone explain why they'd rather see some weirdo fiddling around with "electronics" than 5 weirdos making an unholy cacophony?
they've already heard the cramps and don't want to hear them again.
however nice your suits are.
But they must be better than your mis-placed ring-tonery.
i'm sure i'll do something, but right now enthusiasm is lacking for being awake.
Stick with it. We can do this thing!
the buffalo bar sell strongbow, so i'll likely be there.
It's like the worst kind of cider.
Don't full stops look wierd?
I give in.
heheeee. I love full stops.
Can you stop trying to lure people to PWL's gig?? He seems to have some sort of hold over the people who are going to his gig... It's witchcraft I tell you!
as others have said, blackthorne is a million times worse.
and that's only talking "proper", non-hobo ciders.
of still cider in a Wetherspoons the other day. The equivalent of two pints of the stuff, served in a big glass jar/bottle with a little handle like a teacup. I loved it. Fidel hated it. So I ended up drinking all the flagons.
Pear cider is the new cider, by the way.
this is nice isn't it Bobby? Why not make it personal?
I'm sure everyone will try and make it to both. Although obviously mine will be the priority.
you're at the luminaire, and the fog band are at the buffalo bar, right?
the silverlink train line runs right next to both venues, so post stage times and then if it isn't possible, go for the jugular!
I may come to yours restlessboy. LOOK forward to seeing your band.
No! You can't do this to me! Please, Marilyn? I thought we had something special!
But I'm coming to The Fog Band, because, like, I have tickets already.
BUT my loyalty is fading away slowly.
And yes, my real name IS Marilyn. Why would you think otherwise. Rhetorical question.
Guntrip, come with us.
and a fool. I'm not full, no.
My band is the most ego-less organisation ever. Hence our lack of gigs and nervousness/reticence/kindness/generosity. So I'm always flattered that anyone would come and see us.
PWL, on the other hand, is just in it for the money and sex.
i don't knowwwwwww.
The (Pagan) Wanderer (Lu) returns...
but I'm going to see Restless boy!
Nice to know I have a friend in this den of vipers.
My loyalty that is.
I was speaking generally.
I might go to neither.
Out of protest.
Pagan Wanderer Lu!
I need to be protested against?
Getting desperate or something Bobby?
Just got a general feeling of angst.
I'm might stay at home and listen to linkin park.
I've already seen you and I haven't seen PWL!
And my New Year Resolution is to see as many new bands as I can!
I'll make it up to you
Is it good?
Band is great!
You're the same person aren't you?
You have the best real name on this board.
We got asked if we were twins outside koko on Friday night!
i remember that.
those girls were totally in love with us. (but they were about 12 years old)
I too love standing outside Koko's chatting to 12 year old girls. There's also a free mini bar where people have left half empty cans right by the door before they have gone in.
As I love 'em and they're my mates
The presence of Restlessboy and other DiSsers is merely a top bonus.
Without the Luminaire I'd probably have to go to Silver Rocket anyway: Souvaris and upcdowncleftcrightcabc+start in one gig? Yum...
happiness shall be your reward.
what are atoms for peace like?
Check the MySpace. Kind of like the melodic side of the Pixies back catalogue, I suppose...
If I was reviewing that and it was bad a would just say DELETEDELETEDELETEDELETE DELETEDELETEDELETEDEL ETEDELETEDELETEDELETEDELETE
I know youre a PWL-lover!
I believe they are associates of yours...?
rename yourself BobbyNamedrop?
stop it - you're embarrassing me!
Listen here, then you can make the RIGHT decision!
where you can actually download the tracks for free! rather than having to track down some wanky 7".
who's in it for the money now, Bob?
And the winner gets the audience.
5 million vs 21,000
let's scrap that idea.
that proves the Fog Band are already stupidly popular and therefore need no new fans.
if you do it in "quotes" Fog Band get 876 and PWL gets 419.
not sure you're doing yourself any favours here.
to paint myself as the underdog.
Restlessboy is like Wimbledon in the Cup Final, like Eddie the Eagle Edwards, like...other underdogs.
cup final I watched. Years when the underdog actually won. Brilliant.
but I'm going to try and get to the Fog Band too. PWL gets priority, because I haven't seen him before.
However, to make up for it, I was amused to see Bobby's name when I was actually doing work!
Whether you're there or not, I'll still dedicate a song to you... :(
Is that The Fog Band are already recognised as a band of excellence, and thus have gained greater popularity and online coverage...?
that you are grovelling for sympathy like this, restlessboy, it really is.
Just wrestle already!
enjoying this too much.
But we and John find it arousing.
There is no we in me. Is there Marilyn, er no.
a Royal we?
I've seen ET.
maybe you should lay off the sci-fi a bit. All those beeps and clicks are a bit old hat..
"firmly rooted in 1962" - which would make me an even older hat.
All that retro 80s electro jiggery-pokery is recent enough to be old-hat by now. 1962 hasn't been mined nearly enough!
Or do you deny that you bought our 7"??
im going to this
as they say.
i don't have to chose !:
I won't be there.
but you don't like either of us anyway.
I've been listening a bit more to your music recently and it has grown on me.
I thought Lyle was obsessed with PWL! He's always posting myspace links to it...
between me and restlessboy...
Well how smug and self-satisfying for you
but you still don't like the Fog Band.
Will try the Fog band again ( perhaps...)
I age like a fine wine. they're more like old cheese.
cheese and wine gig together.
Is there a band that sounds like Jacob's crackers?
can Junkplanet do a conceptual set.
suggested song titles:
'Music for Carrs Water Biscuits'
'The Tuc Sonata'
'Why are those Hovis Digestive's always packaged with crackers when they don't go with cheese?' - a balleta in four movements and ninety seconds.
You don't have to constantly try and make me look like a dick.
I don't make up my own press quotes unlike Mr 'The Fog Band are, in their own words: "a quivering rock disgrace".'
I thought she was a Hot Puppies creation!
you are now six years old.
I should be able to make some music like yours on my Fisher Price music box.
using a washboard, a thimble and a dressing up box.
and not very good.
Jeez... Let's just get a grip guys. No one's going to any gigs they don't want to go to.
We're all intelligent and aren't easily swung by pointless propaganda.
Now let's all have a GROUP HUG:
So why are we on DiS ?
Emphasis on "pointless propaganda".
supposed to mean?
That your propaganda invariably leads the reader on a wasted journey.
that we've all basically made our minds up for whatever reason and attempts to draw us to different gigs by any party are likely to be redundant.
Though lyle is right. I'm not sure I count as that intelligent. Ho hum...
tell Grindrod that, he's the one who started this thread.
I was trying to get everyone to go to both.
I don't see how you can claim that! I was just kidding about the whole "rivalry" thing... I wanted people to come to both! It was you who tried to create a divide in the first place.
Or something. I don't think we can do both unfortunately. Isn't one at Highbury Corner and the other at Kilburn?
'Bobby vs Restlessboy' doesn't count as creating a divide?
You could have just posted on the Announcements board like I did - but oh look someone had to have a pop at me!
I thought we were just kidding around, you seem to be taking this more seriously - saying I'm making up reviews and dissing my music.
I'm willing to just be nice if you'll stop sending me those PMs.
It was merely referring to what I understood to be light-hearted sparring! Turns out you had a bigger axe to grind...
Bobby's complimented your massive chopper there and that's not something you do to an enemy...
i'm right !
I'm not coming to either. Now give each other a hug.
I'd forgotten the Silverlink goes straight from Highbury and Islington to Brondesbury. Supposedly it's a 17 minute journey but the trains are only every 30 mins so it would require excellent timing and nerves...
CAN YOU PLEASE STOP BEING SUCH A FUCKING WANKER AND REALISE YOUR BAND IS SHIT!
From restlessboy | 03 Jan '06, 13:08 | Reply"
cos I actually sent that, didn't I?
you know I actually like your band THAT'S WHY I BOUGHT YOUR SINGLE.
So you're now saying I made that PM up??
So why are you going mad like this??
we're all bored.
It's only January 3rd and this thread has made me laugh more than most of last year.
Man...I need to get better jokes. :-(
But fair. :-(
you keep reading the thread...
"Re: Social Board
Look, why don't you stop making yourself look like a tit? There's a reason we're HEADLINING our gig and your on the bottom of the bill.
From BobbyGrindrod | 03 Jan '06, 13:20"
Anyone who knows me will confirm that as far as my vocabulary is concerned, the word "tit" is strictly ornithological.
all those homophobic comments on the other PMs? I don't even want to make those public.
What homophobic comments??? You are completely mad!
get crablin to pass them on to the police.
I won't feel safe in london this friday.
Who CAN we trust nowadays?
Bobby: I know it's still the prohibition in your head, but treat yourself to a mint julip and get yourself down to the local Dance marathon to calm down a bit.
RB: 101110011 BEEP BEEP!
You are a massive gayer, with thunderthighs and a GAY face. I hate dem gays.
From BobbyGrindrod | 03 Jan '06, 13:34"
Pete Waterman though.
gay as the ace of spades, or the Queen of Sheba, or whatever the bloody quote is.
Sorry, my brain is currently on a twenty second
until restlessboy told me in a PM.
Pete Waterman. Elton John. Floella Benjamin.
From restlessboy | 03 Jan '06, 13:24"
If restlessboy comes anywhere near Buffalo Bar on Friday, I'm gonna ruin him like my winklepickers got ruined at that dance off at the speakeasy.
From BobbyGrindrod | 03 Jan '06, 13:05"
please please pleas stop being such bastards STOP let's all go back to talking about shoes and dolphins and stuff STOP
It didn't even have the time and date or "reply" for added authenticity.
it was a telegram. a nice man brought it to my desk.
Are they like cotton pickers? How many does he employ? Man, it sounds painful.
I made that whole PM up. Sorry, I'll go and repent.
a lot of Bobbies faking PMs today.
There's always safety in numbers.
Makes me think of PWEI.
I wanted winkel pickers to go down the shellfish pun line, jst to lighten this shit up like.
So I'll begin:
Stop trying to mussel in on this argument
this is between me and BobbyFinCod.
leave it to BobbyFinCod and restlessbuoy.
is my mortal anemone.
That is turtley ridiculous.
by who I think has argued their case better in this thread.
So far it is BobbyGrindrod: 21 gold spheres, restlessboy: 19 gold spheres.
acquire a gold sphere?
Do I get one by encouraging people to refer to them as the FRog Band?
BobbyGrindrod: 21, restlessboy: 20
I'm literally chewing the tension.
re-christen him SoggyThinBob?
You'll have to do better than that. Lazy restlessboy. Lazy.
Than the bands will be.
has bored me.
It's put me off going to either now. maybe I'll see the longcut. hah.
but, see you there.
well, either that or Broken Family Band. How can you wimp out on this popularity contest?!
Broken Family Band but nobody ever wants to go and see them with me.
but it's sold out now, boo.

14th London The Broken Family Band, doors 8.30pm, FREE entry with voluntary whip-round - What's Cookin' club night www.whatscookin.co.uk
not. i think they're a bit boring live. hehe.
if it wasn't in Leytonstone.
who's being lazy
is it not in London?
it's on the central line i think but i might be lying.
I can do that, I reckon. I'll see how energetic I'm feeling!
zone 3 or something. maybe even 4.
as theo will be there, and we can laugh at his drunken dancing.
and that's unlikely, let's be honest! ;-)
we'll just make a pretty girl dance, that'll get you going.
I MEAN DANCING.
It's my new years resolution.*
*Note: I'm not attracted to men either. I intend to avoid the whole messy personal hell that such feelings bring with them entirely!
It's my new year's resolution.
*Note I am attracted to men either. I intend the whole messy personal hell that such feelings bring with them entirely!
if it made more than a Prole-level of sense.
and if you can do it, i'll respect you :P
I am myself, not a scarf wearing witty CUNT.
Surely not, on this SOCIAL board?!
if/when i get my label's website online, i'm going to put boards on it and have a sarcasm board. purely for sarcasm. I WILL RULE IT.
I'm SURE you will.
Fucking hell it's hard typing sarastically.
because you're oh SO special!
it's easier with italics and bolds and stuff.
I guess some people have SPECIAL NEEDS.
Where's Lyle he's the king of French sarcasm.
But a bit late apparently...
"yay! i'm special!"
GET any funnier?
"The Fog Band are the Hitler Youth of contemporary Rock & Roll. They are like Joy Division if Ian Curtis was trying to be Eddie Argos and had never had a girlfriend. When I listen to the Fog Band it reminds me that I have to put the bins out. My three year old daughter toddled into the room halfway through side B and instantly burst into tears. I had to play her the entire Winnie the Pooh DVD to calm her down - she was inconsolable. If the Fog Band were a car it would only have two wheels, which would obviously be grossly impractical. I resent taxpayers money being spent on things like the Fog Band when we can't even get the trains to run on time. The other day I was five minutes late for work. I blame the Fog Band and so should you.
yours, Disgruntled, Tunnbridge Wells.
There were loads of bits I missed first time round.
DiSers should get together and write a sit come.
Had fun with this today. Hope it raised a smile with all o' y'all.
but not as much as mine and Jez's war. Which I won.
