Re: Is there REALLY no thread about the Eurovision Song Cont

8th year in a row 'we' don't make it to the finals. I'm not surprised. I am a bit - I was suprised that the 2010 entry didn't make it. Out of everything that I've heard in Eurovision over the last few years, it was probably the entry that most sounds most like a Eurovison song: http://www.youtube.c...

Re: Ace Bushy Striptease

Am I alone in believing that Ace Bushy song titles would be easier to remember if they were named numerically. Perhaps the band could just sing the alphabet to help us remember the words. They wont though because of EC political correctness gone mad. You couldn't make it up.

That was some top pop last night.

Although if you google Milky Wimpshake Birmingham, Shana Tova's myspace comes up third. Do they know about the gig?

Amaze. You've had loads of press. Are you doing proper promoting?

I had a feature on one of my gigs in the Metro once, but I had nothing to do with it and it didn't mention The Autumn Store once.

Something dancy with a beat to it. Maybe from the late 90s. I quite like European music.

Failing that, <3 Bearsuit and Half Man Half Biscuit and LC! and Menaguar at the moment.

Re: Birmingham

We're pretty much done with sorting stage times bar a band telling us they can't make whatever slot we've put them in! Once it's 100% confirmed then we'll post it here :) I've been trying my best to not post lyrics from Running Order Squabble Fest all over the internet, at you. I hope you know how ...

Re: Stone Roses

not heard garage flower. i remember it getting pretty duff reviews, which is probably why i didn't rush out to buy it If I were to pick up one of my Stone Roses albums out of the attic to listen to then it would probably be Garage Flowers, I quite liked it's rawness, the drums sound great on it too.

That'd be awesome Trev, if you can. I'm really looking forward to the Edinburgh show, it's with Starlets :)

Also we've managed to fill the 29th with a trip to Durham.Yay. I'll prob make a new thread for the tour once we have a few more details to pop online.
