Anything more over your way ? There used to be a good rock pub on the south side of Croydon town centre - I saw the Quireboys there before they changed their name from Queerboys, so I was glad to have the choice of several walls to lean back against !!
Bollards? WTF are Bollards? is that posh speak for Orange Road Cones? hahaha!!!
Waste of money was that bloody art gallery.......it was the council's way of attempting to make the town more cosmopolitan or something........their was a lot of controversy over the one thats gone up in sandwell, with lots of locals wishing the money to spent elsewhere, hospitals , education ect.... but the whole reason behind it was to make the place a nicer place for the locals to live in?? hmmmm.......wouldn't planting afew tree's or creating green area's been a better idea than a hideous building that most the locals will probably not bother with and vandalise!......the whole regeneration of Wolverhampton is based not just on modernization but on creating a greener less concrete atmosphere! its a big job hahahaha!
Maybe we could play a show at the Walsall Art Gallery, what a smashing idea !! Having done some contract work on their ventilation system and had a look around, I would say the whole collection of artefacts are insured for at least £35.00, so a bit of damage wouldn't be too much to woory about.
Sorry, I didn't realise we had to be politically correct about boll.. oops, er traffic cones. I blame the Liberals, as usual.
Err, what was the original subject of the thread ?
It would probably be the most exciting thing thats EVER happend there!!!!......£35 is probably been a little generous Craig!.....i wonder how much Noddy Holder got paid for been the "Voice" of the elevator? "were all crazzeee now on floor 3!!!" hahaha!
er the orignal subject was it something to do with a Band called Tara's summat playing a little show somewhere or summat?
Just to finish the thread off, the Christchurch gig went extremely well. Yes, the stage and sound systems were superb and we played to a few hundred, even in the on-off rain and amid forecasts for torrential rain and thunder.
The best bit though, was seeing a mostly non-melodic rock audience really getting into our original melodic rock. The local radio station had been playing our newly recorded song "Homeland" on heavy rotation and we could hear the crowd singing it back to us - even over the onstage racket we were making. We shifted a load of CDs and the local newspaper were all over us - why can't this enthusiasm have the opportunity to grow with the national music media ?
Brand new song "Rock n Roll Beauty Queen" had its first live airing and was very well received and the surprise on many faces as we got to chorus on our rocked-up version of Kool & The Gang's "Ladies Night" was great fun, as everyone realised just what we doing.
