I''m totally prepared for people like him to pay more tax so that I can go to London to drink beer. And I live Closer to London (1hr26 from New St.) than he does. I'm all heart.

The problem was to “take something” in every saloon between Oxford Street and Hampstead Road
If we were to count a 'saloon' as only somewhere with saloon doors, I think I could manage that without being hospitalised by the time I got to Euston...

Edit: Oh, sorry, I thought 'take something' was a euphemism for 'have a shot at the bar'.

And we can drink to our friends in the North and to a future of state-owned railways that don't punish us for wanting to be in the pub with each other without having to plan it six months in advance. Yes, I know how to make it fun!

See some of you later on tonight.
I was cycling home tonight after the pub, and for a change, since it was New Year's Day, there was hardly any traffic, just the odd taxi. As I was parallel to the railway line, there was just me and the COMMUNIST TRAIN. It was ACE.
As wrong as it was to do,

What, dress up as 19th century German intellectuals, get really drunk, then tell a pub full of people that Germany's great and England is shit?

I'm in.

We still doing this then? I can be there probably earlier than anyone, if I need to be, but thought I might get some scran first.

So basically, if you're DJing a drum and bass night and you fuck up the vocals or the mix or something then your general punter there isn't really going to notice what you've done, it's all about the other DJ's, they'd pick up on it straight away and would know you'd fucked up, your funky house though, if you drop a vocal in the wrong place, or screw the mix up then you know people are going to pick up on it, it's just too obvious with funky house, you havent got that deep beat running through it to try and cover up what happened.. If you can DJ a Drum and Bass night then you're pretty much alright to DJ anything else, Dubstep shouldnt be too bad as it's got a really low bass running through it with a kind of slowed down beat and again you can cover anything you do wrong and just let the crowd get off on it.. Its a big pill scene though, i mean theres a couple of regulars that are there in there in their 60s, shirts off, pure MDMA running through them, they're in week in, week out, it's just their lifestlye you know..

Same time next month then?

Dave - someone should teach him how to cut hair instead of this DJ malarky.

That was a lovely evening, that pub is amazing. And that tiger .....

Ooh, cutting (something Dannyboy should learn to do)

It's alright, it will grow back.

I still have most of that tiger on the back of my coat.

I think monthly Londons Pub Club is go, don't you? I could have stayed in there all night. We left at the right time though because half an hour later and I'd have been stranded in Elephant and Castle. No-one wants that.

Did we ever figure out whether tiger's dad was Billy Childish?

I think it was nearly Billy Childish. He didn't sound quite right, when I heard him chatting.

And yes to monthly pub club gatherings.

I'd be well up for monthly gatherings! I didn't get to stay long last night as I was being forced to go drink with my colleagues and I was scared by the dogs fighting cos I am a SCAREDY CAT.

yeah, that was fun! i'd totally be up for a monthly one too. i was more scared of the little dog and giant dog getting frisky. tiger was for sure the biggest and most eccentrically-furred dog i've ever seen though, it was pretty amazing.
