Re: Bumblebees, The Paraffins + more Bristol/Oxford 7/02-8/02

Sorry Rocker - The Croft had booked a club night starting at 10.15 so they wanted us finished early. They were pretty crap all round really. The DJing at the Cube does indeed generally happen at the bar rather than the cinema bit, but people tend to stick around the bar unless there's bands/films ac...

Re: I want to marry Charlie Brooker

I watched the repeats of Dead Set last week, nice how the real villian was the Big Brother producer rather than the contestants. Wish a bit more had happened though to justify spending three hours on it.

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey

Video was crap, song is nice but seems to end abruptly - is it just me or does Morrissey now have a very pronounced lisp?

the bumblebees says 'hullos'

Hiya. The Bumblebees, of which I am just under one-third, would love to play gigs. Anytime, anyplace, probably. I think a few people on here have put us on, and they will hopefully agree that we are, at the least, tidy and courteous.

Re: Veg*n & Vegetari*n (No Fish Please)

I just made vegan chocolate cookies (recipe from the PPK - http://www.theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=111) - they were kind of more like a small spongey cake than chewy cookies, but we did use oats instead of flax seeds. Didn't realise until after that flax seeds are an egg replaceme...

i would love to know of good places where i can put on gigs for CHEAP. the port mahon CLOSED after i had only put on one gig there, and everywhere else is a bit of a step-up, pricewise.

Re: The ""I'm trying to get gigs. Can anyone help?" topic

i feel a bit guilty coming on here asking for gigs, but this thread title is very tempting. the bumblebees have not gigged since september - now we are gigging anytime you want us, but especially may.

Re: establishing a diy, not for profit arts/music space

more people to talk to might be the people that run the cube cinema in bristol. they have been DIY/non-profit/community run for about 11 years now i think. although they often struggle to find volunteers to keep it open, presumably they have found the funds to pay the rent for all that time.

Re: A thread about putting on DIY gigs

i didn't even realise indie bands asked for guarantees until i started putting shows on! we have never asked for one because it is the other bands that suffer if a promoter has to give all the profit (and often more) to one band. generally when we have supported a bigger band, we haven't been paid, ...

Re: The ""I'm trying to get gigs. Can anyone help?" topic

we ( the bumblebees ) are trying to make some sort of tour for ourselves. it's kind of hard. the only gig we definitely have is in glasgow, on 6th september. if anyone would like to put us on a week or so either side of it then that would be ace - preferably the further it is from glasgow, the furth...
