Quiet night for me and the Host with the Most aka Jamie Netsounds, this years compere without compare up on the Black Isle at Jocktoberfest. I only managed a pint – no wait, a pint and a half thanks to ABC Dave – cheers mun ! I shall get sausaged up today hopefully………….
Twas cold but they burned sticks. Folk were thirsty so they sold them beer. Folk were hungry so they sold them sausage. Folk wanted hip-hop to bounce around to so they gave them HECTOR FUCKING BIZERK !! Got to hand it to them Black Islers !! First year saw Stanley Odd rocking the rafters out in the barn – first of many times I’ve seen them and last night I was introduced to the wonder that is Hector Bizerk !! I’m thinking highlight already – certainly wont be the last encounter I have with them ! A fraught 20 odd minutes with zero power to stage almost fucked the whole job but everyone worked together and clawed it back just in time – I was ready to start a riot, I was !! (I wasn’t – Id have just went home, quietly, and nobody else was bothered either – WE HAD FAITH IN CMPS). Bizerk had a heckler to start with – all good natured but the stern warning did go out – “Dont heckle a Battle Rapper” – quality ! New album out 23 September too – cant wait !
STILL IM TRIPPING OVER UNTETHERED DOGS THOUGH – LOTS OF FUCKING DOGS AGAIN !! I don’t understand this !! Why do you feel the need to bring your dog to a beer festival where you’re going to be drinking beer-based beers and other alcohol and stuff and the like etc and what not ?? In the fucking bar too 😦 – don’t get it at all……….
Adrian and Lucy Telfer did a sterling job as All Cat No Hat opening the proceedings and Grousebeater Sound System, although dogged with techy hassles, got all ceilidh-techno on our asses. Butterscotch finished the night but alas we had done a runner for home. Back again today – lets see if anyone can top the Bizerkers. Special mention to Audrey Tait of HB – what is it about female drummers this year ! Sheila E and the dame from Glasvegas were all we had then BOOM, Audrey Bizerk and Kirstin Elk surface !! Brilliant !
Heres a few photos……………more over on faecesboke and flickr as always. Links are over there >>>>>>>>>>>
