"Get Rodgered" used to be Scream Blue Murder. and other variations such as Cider Metal Fite and Rumjunkie.

We is playing Saturday 29th at the Black horse Bridge st Taunton.
Haloween fancy dress optional. 3 on the door.

Hecklers more than welcome.

I'll be playing two songs three if I can learn one more by then. This demonstrates the gap in musical talent, Aaron lead guitarist learned a song at practice last week, he listened to it 3 times on a mobile phone and then played it.

Thanks for the encouragement I'll have fun and the Horse is always a good crowd and up for a party.

The gig went really well. A smaller audience than hoped for but there were lots of bands playing various pubs in town.

I got huge support from a generous crowd.

Great fun and I can only get better.

To put my afforts into perspective the rest of the band played from just before 9pm, till gone 1am without a break. Over forty songs.

A large contingent of gentlemen from 40 comando joined in the fun.
Never seen so many people with so little hair headbanging to "Rosie" and "Ace of spades"

Crackin' night.

Err can't remember their name... Graham (Nipper) was playing lead guitar with a girl singer, they had a mammoth set list too and the peeps I was with wanted to stay to the end. They were good, enjoyed it.
Then moved on to Wrantage and it all went to fuck...woke up Sunday afternoon with what appear to be stigmata on me forehead..

Haven't seen Nipper's new band yet.


Wrantage?

That wouldn't be a birthday party for a house would it?

I heard a discussion on redio 4.

'parently due to the internet and social websites they have now revised it to four degrees of separation.

But me and Smutty have more than that many connections.

We went to college together.
I went out with his sister.
Then he married my first wife's sister.
We both worked for the AA.
We both worked for VOSA.

Funny old world innit?
