Looks like a good night. They called Brainlove "savvy".
I should know: I've been recording all of them. I should be at this one.
There's a MySpace too: http://www.myspace.com/lonepilot
Savvy indeed! I'll be there, Napoleon is ace.
so stay tuned.
i'm going to see brigade, fightstar, sepultura and in flames
yes, it's gonna be a busy night.
i'm just gonna see 1 band
is where I@ll be on Wednesday!
I'd love to see Helen McCookerybook; I last saw her play live in 1984. She's wonderful.
Who, or what, is a Helen McCookerybook?
At the gig which you advertise above, Ms. McCookerybook is a support act, as is Hazey Jane who is equally wonderful.
Helen was in Chefs (early eighties seminal band) and Helen And The Horns (mid-eighties seminal band)
I think you're trying to wind me up by claiming that you've never heard of her.
Believe it or not, there is the occasional dark, dusty, cobwebbed corner of indiedom that I am yet to shine my apparently all-knowing musical flashlight into...
Thanks for the links.
John, I'm appalled you didn't check them out :-/
The dog ate my homework, sir.
that are about him.
Talking about bands from 1984, I saw John Hegley and the Popticians at the Water Rats last night - brilliant
we're running a night on Thursday at the enterprise with Faculty, No Bra, Scarla O and Swimsuit Issue.
A mere Â£2 with a flyer (of which slightly updated ones are coming soon, oh yes!
Sorry Theo, otherwise I would...
i'm running a night on monday 27th march at nambucca with a band featuring a whole load of exes, such as ex-symposium, ex-ikara colt etc. :-D
ps. i can't make it on wednesday. :-(
I was wondering what you meant about the 'exes'. I thought maybe they were all containing ex-boyfriends!
i'm not that groupie-fied.
Tomorrow Tomorrow TomorrowTomorrowTomorrow TomorrowTomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow Tomorrow TomorrowTomorrowTomorrow
Only several hours to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!one
I thought Hannah had caused a worldwide shortage.
Are you the OPEC of the exclaimation mark world?
I'd love to see Helen McCookerybook; you're going and you haven't even heard of her!
You know, someone being a towering success in your mind doesn't always equate with the level of awareness out there in the real world...
the Ranic Puke Of The Righteous Fuck would be the biggest Vom-core Str8edg Speedpunk combo in the world...
John Peel played all her music many times, she's done several Peel sessions.
Many, many, many people were played on Peel and did sessions, and many remained completely obscure. Junkplanet has been played by Steve Lamacq and appeared all over the media, but is still COMPLETELY obscure.
I'm going for drinks with Uni ladies first and then I'm making them come to their first gig!! Hahaha. He better be on form ;)
Number 70, hopefully that's the old st end coz it's quite a long road.... it goes past Hoxton Square.
I have to do some work stuff at home tonight but hoping I can make it to Napoleon IIIrd too.
70 Hoxton Street, LONDON, N1 6LP
Doors 8pm, Â£3
Napoleon IIIrd headlines
supports are apparently great...
going for noodles first. there in a bit :)
I think I know it.
What was it like?
Did Brianlove tell Helen that he thinks she's obscure?
a kinda boring singer lady. Sorry John. Napoleon was great though. It was a fun night until the end. We were waiting for a taxi while Napoleon loaded out his equipment, when Miss AMP got manhandled by an ape-like security man for not leaving and wanting to say goodbye to everyone in a normal fashion. Then when I intervened and told the apeman to back off, the manager of the pub came to 'sort it out' and proceeded to get really angry and throw me on the floor. That venue is run by a bunch of ignorant thugs.
i've never been to the macbeth. it sounds shit.
Much nicer atmosphere and stuff. The guy has good taste in DVDs too.
when I found out that the security guards like to rough up women and the manager doesn't mind and joins in.
and ended up just reading guntrip's comment.
I'm a bit confuzzled by that to be honest. It was relaxed last time I was there.
than a dickhead security guard who's just itching for some trouble.
but when I've been there I've had no trouble.
Bit confused about him going mad. He was getting irritated by a guy at the pool table.
Fuck. I liked that coat. It's messed up.
and then sue them. It could work...
people shouldn't get away with that kind of crap.
you shouldn't be able to manhandle someone out of yr venue just cos 'we all wanna get home'. yeah waiting ten minutes for people to say bye/have a piss is awful isn't it?
Sounds like a proper ruck. Did you get a punch in? John 'The Geordie Destroyer' Rogers, Welterweight indie fighting MACHINE.
I'm getting confused.
He's actually Bobby Robson.
Ho is Robbie Bobberson?
hope you're ok. Good job me and mrs left when they told us to - my centre of gravity is outside my body. I might have ended up in brixton.
I forgot I caught a glimpse of Miss B last night, I thought she was your imaginary girlfried!
Born a stone's throw from the tyne and all that.
There was no punching. Just hard stares and pushing and some grabbing and snarling from the goons.
