Had to think long and hard about posting this but my wife has been bought two tickets (Birthday Present) for Tw*t That at City of Man Stadium next sat and her friend can`t go, so I`m getting nagged to go with her, it`s a bit of a dilema- would loose a lot of street cred if I went but on the other hand don`t want wife upset when she put`s up with me going to see TV and the Valentines 3 times in 10 days.
Oh Dear!!

You have my deepest sympathies - I'd say my wife would go with her but, you've guessed it, she's already going with her sister!

I'd have stayed in for the fry-up!

It sat uncomfortably with me for the whole gig.

As did suited & booted 50+ yr.old businessmen doing the 'Prince Charming' dance with their wives/secretaries/bits on the side.

My sausages, eggs and beans gave the odd gurgle of protest throughout - none more so than when I went to buy a round and found that a bottle of Newkey Brown was a fiver and a small bottle of Stella was 4!  >:(

Fuck me - London prices 'eh!

Adam was on the telly tonight and said he'd fallen off the stage - perhaps he saw the bar price list!

More likely to be his ego that toppled him over  ;)

He should have had a fry-up - then he could have had a chip on each shoulder for balance!

Looked like he'd had one too many fry-ups in the past though, to be fair, he had the appearance of someone who'd lost a fair amount of weight at some point. I just wish he'd get out of the habit of lifting the front of his shirt up to reveal an un-lovely gut. It reminded me a bit of seeing David Johansen's paunch a bit too close up.

It looked like the surface of the moon.

David Johansen's paunch?

I think he's the only person thinner than TV!

Ah, but even Iggy, an incredibly fit man, has a little pot around the belly area - I got rather too close for comfort to that as well last year - so I think it might have something to do with age rather than any excess in the Eating Dept. Being a Slim(ish) Jim meself and (just) the right side of 50, I haven't got any personal knowledge to base my guess on, but I don't think I'm too far out on this. DJ definitely has a little, age and abuse-wizened gut.

I sense some future research is required - age-related loss of muscle tone may be to blame.

I had a brilliant night at The Members gig in Romford last night. Only about 60 people but that was probably down to the bloody football thing. The small but enthusiastic crowd were singing and dancing along and a true party atmosphere was in evidence. JC's intersong banter was on top form. Very amusing. Danger's Close and Social Schism etc. did excellent support slots.

And Mr. Scabies drumming has lifted The Members' game. The dub reggae they do live is much improved. I had a nice chat with Rat and he was suprisingly a real gentleman. Not much sign of the hellraiser but some brilliant anicdotes that I can't repeat in case someone takes out an injunction. ;D

And Uli, looks like the German dates are at least a week later than we thought so there's still the possibility that I'll be on driving duties bring the guys over in my 7 seater. Hopefully we'll meet for a beer.

Thanks for reporting! Sounds like a good night.  :)

Well, I hope so too! If it's anywhere near Stuttgart, Ulm, Munich we should be able to make it. Places further away depend on timing, money etc.
Would be brilliant to meet Mr Scabies again.  8)
Some of the drives of the Jan/Feb tour were ridiculously long, hope they can knock up a more "comfortable" tour schedule for Sept!
Just around the corner and miles away...
