How convivial, I can pop into a gig on my way home from work  8)

The Montague Arms looks like an intereting sort of place too 8)

I had plans to make this one. Then my Mother-In-law fell over, bruised her ribs and broke her arm.

So, nursing duties it is. :(

It is. Not only has it hosted shed-loads of gigs over the years, but it has a great stage and accoustics and a soundman who really knows his stuff.

I think I've persuaded a few of the regular Deptford/New Cross mob to come along, which'll be good. Nice ladies and gents, so they are.

Looking forward to it.

Just back. A bit early as work dictates an early start.

Fairly decent sized crowd as this was a benefit gig rather than a TV one, so the punters took a little while to warm up.

TV on form right from the off as usual and got good appreciation straight away.

I spotted a red Mowhawk-bedecked woman pushing her way to the front halfway through the set and recognised her from plenty of other gigs. I've seen her turn up with her leather jacketed dog at some of them and, although she can be a bit of a pain in the arse at times, I think she means well. Anyway...Tim starts going into his regular spiel about the environmental changes and climate problems when Ms. Mowhawk shouts out:

"...Hippy!..."

Tim looked genuinely taken aback.

"...Who?...Me??..." he said, stunned.

It was a bit of an awkward moment to be honest. But he talked himself back on-track very quickly:

"...Look..." he said "...I've come here to do a benefit gig...and you're calling me a hippy?...you're the one with the long hair!..."   

Which was a pretty decent get-out line, I thought   :)

Still a good gig. Support were rather lame though, imo.

Set list was pretty similar to previous night, but with no encore sadly.

Had good chats to both Tim and Gaye, lovely people that they are.

Gonna try and make Croydon gig :)

Nice words Slaughterboy.. that woman did mean well - just a bit mad!!
TV was on top form - Mrs F has the setlist so I am sure she will post it later - the pub is absolutely awesome - will be going back there definately. Nice to see Tom,Dave,Gaye,Lee there and I really hope we get some down to Croydon on the 15th- TV playing with Leigh Heggarty is always awesome, and with Dave Sharp from the Alarm on the bill and the talented Mav Picken - should be a good un
(not that I may be trying to promote it in any way of course  ;D ;))

Thanks  :)

You're right about the Mohawk woman. Tim said that she apologised and said she was having 'a bit of a laugh', although he reckoned she was off her trolley! ::)

Is 'Tom' the lead singer of The Phobics?

If so, we've probably met. I've known that Tom the best part of 20 years now (he used to be my neighbour in Deptford) and we must've attended hundreds of the same gigs.

Yes Tom is ..
I was the 'well rounded' chap wearing a stagefrite Tshirt and sat at TV's merch stall table for 1/2 the set - before going to the loo (as advertised by Mr Smith .thanks Tim :)) then stood at front singing my heart out - ha ha
seen the phobics a few times - remember going to that little gig on the estate a few years back

Ah. Can't say I definitely saw you, as I was standing at that narrow bit where the bar ends and the gig-area starts. I was going to say that I was the bloke in the jeans, black coat and the black t-shirt but, as this also applied to about 90% of the audience, I realise it would mean nothing. The t-shirt was a St.Pauli 'Turbojugend' jobbie...which probably won't help, either  ::)

Was that the one where they pulled the plug on TV about 10-15 mins into his set 'cos they ran out of time?! He was bloody furious (and quite rightly so) in the pub afterwards. I was embarrassed, even though it was nothing to do with me, but just because my old estate had cocked-up and I so wanted Tim to enjoy it there as he'd busted a bollock to get back from somewhere in Europe specially to do the gig...I think I've got a DVD of that truncated set somewhere. Actually, I know I have. Haven't played it recently, though. Think I'll dig it out and give it a watch again, sometime.

I'll try and get Tom to go to the Croydon gig.

Maybe I can throw off my cloak of anonimity there!
