Rehearsing with the Fishes… Again!

Yesterday was our final rehearsal before the forthcoming Sheffield gig. We went through the usual stuff, and had a couple of runs through Delicate. The decision stands that it is officially in the set! Also compared body sizes… Paul has huge hands! But short arms! I wonder if that means he’s a particular creature? IContinue reading “Rehearsing with the Fishes… Again!”

An 80th Birthday

It might seem unusual to have a rock/pop band for an 80th Birthday, but the birthday boy has followed us for a number of years now so it seemed apt. The hotel it was held at was a great place. Top end of Heckmondwike; a place called Healds Hall. It was an early start asContinue reading “An 80th Birthday”

Double Banger again.

Bank holidays seem to have this strange ability to become two gig weekends, this was no exception. Saturday was Ingoldmells – a tediously long drive out there, followed by a rather questionable gig, followed by a tedious drive home and a 3am bedtime.

The new one represents me as I now am due to my rather dramatic change of hair (or loss of…).Continue reading “New photo”

Five things I discovered this week:

1. Tesco’s Mobile Phone Shop in Wath is crap. 2. Volvo drivers are blind. They must be, cos they never see anyone else on the road. 3. Apparently, you have to tune your bass weekly… damn. 4. Something I posted a month ago came true recently… read between the lines… you know what I mean.Continue reading “Five things I discovered this week:”

Cough… Oink…

2/281:365 – Back to Acoustic It seems I’ve succumbed to Swine Flu. I blame the pigs. I feel pretty damned rough, and it’s not helping the fact that my old injury of my broken pinkie has decided to become sore again… I may end up having that one checked out… I know I’ve not brokenContinue reading “Cough… Oink…”
