Coffee ? Check. Rich Teas (4) ? Check. The sweet goodness of a Natures Valley Oaty Crunch Bar Thing (1) ? Check. Scraps of paper that an inky spider has crawled over ? Check.
Right – I’m about ready to relive last Friday then. Instead of attempting to make sense of my ramblings I shall merely type what is scribbled on the sheet of A4 paper from my camera bag. Lined by the way – aye posh A4 like – and scrawled, it appears, soon after arriving home on the Friday night/Sat Morning !! See Above. It’ll be utter bollocks but it will at least be on a par with some of the April Fools crap that recently did the rounds. Its also lifted verbatim from the page as much as possible so forgive some of the grammar. (In fact just forgive the actual idea – lazy lazy lazy bastard that I am) There are more photos of the events I attended on the faecesboke page here and here. If you are still awake after reading this drivel then please head over to the following websites and do some clicking, liking, donating and whatever else is on offer for the doing of. Cheers.
“BUS INTO TOWN. HUNG FOR HOHALO – PRAWNS, VEG SUSHI (?), RED VINO. EMMA MITCHELL. A DISCUSSION. IF VINTAGE IS THE NEW THING WHAT ARE VINTAGE THINGS KNOWN AS NOW. MORE RED WINE. HOLLYS WEBSITE DOESNT DO HER WORK JUSTICE. AT ALL. IT HAS TO BE SEEN. ITS REALLY REALLY IMPRESSIVE IN REALITY. REALLY” (That last bit is absolutely true. Get along to the gallery at Hung on Lombard Street and have a look. It’s all pretty damned cool over at Hung – they do T and coffee too )
“CEOL NELLYS FOR CHARITY. GOT THE CRAIC WITH DICKIE BILLS. ALWAYS INTERESTING. SAID HI TO DJ DAN THE MAN IN THE HAT. WATCHED EMILY AND BEN. SAW JEMMA TWEEDIE. SAID HELLO BETWEEN SONGS – IM TOLD THIS IS THE ‘NEW WAY’ TO DO IT ROUND HERE. DYLAN JOINED FOR DUET (I have since discovered this was one of Jemmas own compositions, You & I). SPOKE SHITE TO ARCHIE OXIDE AND SAW ONE OF THE BIG HITTERS OFF OF ABC. PUT THE MUSICAL WORLD TO RIGHTS WITH WINNIE AND JACK DANIEL – ALWAYS ENJOYABLE. LJP’ERS. HOW FUCKING DIFFICULT IS IT TO TAKE DOWN FUCKING DARTBOARDS WHEN THERES MUSIC ON? MAKE AN EFFORT PUBS. OTHER THAN THAT NELLY MOR FINLAYS LOOKS PRETTY DARNED GOOD”
“RAN ALL MA WEE FEETIES BACK OVER THE BRIDGE FOR TO SEE THE HOMEWORK. NO MORE BLOODY ACOUSTICS TONIGHT. FORGOT THERE WAS A COMEDY THING ON. IM STILL NAE SURE ABOUT THAT. BOTHY WOULD BE BETTER MEBBE. JOY OF TALK EVEN ? NAH. PHIL FUCKING KAY. SAW THE MAN AT THE LEMON TREE ABOUT A MILLION YEARS AGO. FUNNY. COULDNT REALLY BE ASSED WITH HIM TONIGHT – TO START. WAS IN #13 TOWERS MODE. WANTED HOMEWORK. I WARMED TO HIM – EVEN BOUGHT THE FUCKER A DRAM. (Jamie Netsounds will tell the story that I bought the cheapest whisky in Hoots and proceeded to drink half of the dram before giving it to Kay saying he wasnt that good – simply not true. Ok it is)
PK DEALT WITH SOME UTTERLY UNIMAGINATIVE HECKLING KNOWN TO MAN – YOUUUUURE SHIT – REALLY, THE BEST YOU COULD COME UP WITH. SILLY COW. EVEN TOLD THE ATTENDING SECURITY TO LEAVE THE HECKLER THERE – GOOD MAN OTHERWISE YOUD HAVE LOOKED BEATEN. BIG D RAMSAY MOVED HIM CLOSER TO US AND HE FINISHED SET”
TAKEOVER #9. PARIS TO PRISON (From Paris to Prison). JUST DIDNT GET THEM AT ALL. MAYBE JUST WRONG NIGHT. ANOTHER TIME I MIGHT HAVE RAVED BUT NOT TONIGHT. HAMEWORK MODE. THEY DID HAVE TWO BASSES AT ONE POINT AND A LASSIE THAT SEEMED TO LEAN AGAINST A WALL WITH A GUITAR – ALL VERY LEATHER. ILL RESERVE JUDGEMENT TILL A SOBERERERERER LESS HOMEWORKY EVENING. (I have since listened to some of their stuff online and there’s bugger all wrong with it, just downloaded their EP – obviously too excited about the main event on Friday)
“RED LIGHTS RED LIGHTS RED LIGHTS. ALL I SEE. WHY IS THERE A BIG JAGER SIGN ON THE WALL WHEN THE ALBUMS CALLED 13 TOWERS. THE EDGE OF THE BAR WAS BLACKER. HOMEWORK” There you go – that’s all that could come out of my wee brain about Homework apparently. I did also get two videos on my phone which sound fucking awful – shame – they look great. Nothing to do with ‘Hatters I hasten to add – merely me being almost on stage when trying to film. Wee HTC couldn’t handle the power that the gents put out. Blinding set as ever including a new untitled track called Untitled No Name Track or something. Drummer, Rich Kass didn’t know either so I don’t feel bad about lack of knowledge. Lol. They also knocked out Thoughts, Edge of Control Was Black , All I See, It’s all Over and Cairo. They then had to put up with the ramblings of Jamie Netsounds and Houdi Dontblog. Poor Bastards. Thank you Homework. Thank you Netsounds.
