  1. Chuckle Brothers? For a man making a career out of pub demolition you've got a lot to say for yourself.

  2. Saw Lucinda Williams last Friday. Great band but very few laughs.

    2. Would like to see her, some great albums and songs. Were you at Patti Smith?

      Delete
    3. Visiting son and family in Boston. Don't announce it for burglars like Norrie does. Lucinda was on at Cape Cod. Usual whooping US audience and song dedicated to gun massacre victims.Missed Patti Smith. Did she have more than one record? Passed within 111 km of Asbury Park.

    4. That sounds like a fantastic trip Glen - hope they are all doing well. So near to Asbury park as well.....Patti was outstanding.

  3. I see EZ shares a birthday with Freddie Mercury and Debbie Harry. Uncanny that.
    Do you think The Proclaimers share a birthday?

    1. In Edinburgh they'd be lucky to share a father.

  4. Norrie, Toyah is on "Sounds of the 80s" (available on Alison Again) this week.
    Looking fit!!

      14th. - 26th. is good for me.

      Wherever suits.

      Delete
    2. Give me a time & a place please & I'll confirm one way or another.

    3. Any time in July apart from 11th and 12th. Glasgow preferably.

      Delete
    4. I think we should take turns having it in our homes - Norrie first.

      Delete
    5. Who knows where I could be living by then...

      Delete
    6. I'd think Glasgow since we were in Edinburgh last time? Weekends preferred? Don't ask me to suggest a venue, I'm completely unacquainted with Glasgow's pubs, but if it's somewhere I can hear folk talk in that would be a big plus.

      Billy,

      You do know the Billy Boys will be marching on the 13th. this year?

    8. I'll try again. Glasgow Fair Saturday is 18th - my guess is that would be best avoided? So maybe 24th or 25th if a weekend is preferred?
      FFS could someone give me some input other than 'whatever'? Please.

      Delete
    9. 24th would be better for me.

      Delete
    10. 24th is ideal Gaie. If we get concensus I will sort out a venue and get in touch with some who are not regularly on here.

    11. What have Franz Ferdinand and Sparks to do with it?

      Delete
    12.  
      24th. is good for me.

      If concensus means identifying as Jedi on an official form, I hope we get it.

      But let's not Force the issue...

      Delete
    13. 24th seems good. Paolo Pablo's in too and I've pm'd Henri on FB. I don't seem to have his e-mail.

      Franz Ferdinand and Sparks said they'd come along and do a couple of songs for us.

  6. Can we assume that the Liquid Entertainer is on her hols??
    Some stellar posts tonight. And she's just ignored!

    I would extend an invitation to her for the 24th.

    1. think we'll wait till you come over, Adam, she can entertain you for the evening...

      Delete
    2. I have pencilled in the 24th but it will be a new experience as I'm only used to cheap Chinese and entertaining Norrie as half of the Chuckle Brothers.

    3. Ah, the "I'm a poor pensioner routine".

  7. "would love to be Suzi Quatro in a 6 man tent!"

    Barry Cryer used to make a living out of lines like that. Peter Kay still does.

    1. Actually I was at the Riu Imperial Mahraba in April, I'm still in shock at what happened. Sympathies to those most directly affected.

      The Tunisians are a lovely, welcoming and helpful people.

      Cannae imagine why anyone would think of doing that to innocent folk..

    2. Apologies MacK, my rather sober message nothing to do with your comment!

      Just me and thinking...

  10. Billy, Mac and you other FBers.

    I dont think "wanna" should count. That is how you spell it.

    3. the old grumpies on FB Apollo page don't seem to have been very happy with last night's gig - what say you, Billy? Mind you, they're never happy except when reminiscing about the wonders of the Apollo and if only it could be rebuilt and how tickets only cost 2/6 and what fun it was wondering if the balcony would finally come down tonight.

      The Balcony Scene...

      Romeo! Romeo! Wherefore art thou, Romeo?

      In the stalls!

      Ah'll be doon in a minute!

    5. I thought the gig was excellent apart from the bammers trying to push their way to the front. Probably the same folk moaning about it not being at the Apollo...
