Just received my ticket for the Stiff Little Fingers gig here in Minneapolis on July 18th. It's only the 2nd time they've played Minneapolis. Looking forward to it as it almost coincides with my birthday.

Haven't actually been yet but...

 

Got my tickets a few days ago for the Ramblin' Man fest in July, it's wall to wall with dodgy DL fodder - Ian Anderson, Blue Oyster Cult, Greg Allman (yeah, really, him!), Camel and The Scorpions - so if the bands are shite I'll grab the binoculars and study them carefully to try and spot the tell tale signs of diabetes out of control or heart disease, then report back.

 

That does seem like a really good value festival looking at the line up. Maybe next year.

Probs best to post this on the music obsessed thread.

 

Mr Weird and Wacky's free download emporium is offering up the gloriously unlistenable Metal Machine Music by Lou Reed as today's gift to mankind.

NNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

 

 

I feel your pain Lardy, Glasto have a sporting chance (and form in this dept) with regard to a late replacement, but I'm guessing your O2 shows go back about a year now. Dave Grohl will come back and honour the deal, he's that kind of guy, right?

 

STADIUM Mary, no poxy 02 for Grohl!

 

I have no idea, haven't had any news from the promoters yet about rescheduling.  I will just have to look forward to Madness in September, not quite the same though.....

 

 

Maybe you can pursuede Suggs to throw in a few Foo Fighters covers into the set list.

The young 'un is partial to a certain amount of low rent ironic humour (fuck knows where he gets it from). Anyway, with the same mirth that makes him record old episodes of Bullseye and piss himself laughing at the shite prizes, he expressed a wish to watch the Status Quo movie. Our DVD has just arrived, assuming nobody else hereabouts has actually seen this famous shite-fest, we'll keep you posted!

Why, thank you, Mary.  No indeed, although I did pick Alex Higgins for my first DDP team.  I never did again though, because my friend told me he would never die.

 

Anyone who thinks a chainsmoking alcoholic won't die is stupid. Everybody dies some day.

 

 

:unsure:  Thank you for those wise words.

I think it was the death of George Melly that led to my discovery of the DL.

 

 

That was a good day hereabouts, then.

 

Not to be confused with the death of a certain snooker player from cancer!
