Shame I miss this date by a week or so. I have invited Kevin, Andy and Gary who are all local coachees of mine to this gig.

The must do pub in Maidstone is The Flowerpot EKtaff. Enjoy. :D

Good man..  Dont know what parking is like near the venue, I know Maidstone is a B during the day..  you could always park at "white Rabbit" and walk into town..  about 10 mins to venue.

Never had too much of a problem parking in Central London, even at the busiest of times, of a weekend. I know how much of a bugger Maidstone is for traffic in the day, but it can't be too terrible in the evening. I'm sure I'll be fine.

Fingers crossed...

Just back.

2 NEW SONGS FROM NEW ALBUM!!

Sorry - was I shouting? ;)

One was called 'Replay' and the other was called 'Carnival Of Fools', although I may have one or even both wrong. Taff wrote them down - I'm sure he'll confirm later. Don't take my word for it - I dont even know the name of the woman who played 'Ripley' in "Alien" (ask TV - he'll explain).

Other songs included GGE, Bored, New Church, GBM, OCW, No Time To Be 21, Lion & The Lamb, Only One Flavour, Tomahawk Cruise, CITL,, Arms Of My Enemy, The Future Used To Be Better...all of which went down very well with a small but vociferous crowd.

Pah he beat me to it....

Replay is correct, but 2nd one is Festival of Fools (but I will confirm that, and the full set-list later)

"The Wise Owl" was in fine form last night...  Indeed a good crowd, around 50ish I would say.

2 support bands, the first were good, but the 2nd (a trio), well... lets just say we had to repair to the bar!!!, where they tried to poison the Boy Slaughter.. when a pint of Strongbow turned out to be  apint of lager......

Anyhow more to come..  off now to TRB...

So the Weekend set-lists

Maidstone  11/01/2013

Flavour, 21, T.Cruise, Replay, CITL, Future, Lion, Useless, Expensive, Cutbacks, Imm Rich, GBM, Life, Festival of Fools, New Church, Prayer, Drink, Dang Playg, Arms, GGE, BT, OCW. 

My comment about "Wise Old Owl" is reference to TV's room name at the White Rabbit..  how apt...

TRB  Castaway  The Tabernacle, London  12/01/2013

Lion, Thin Green Line.   All with the TRB


Now a question for you completers..   i.e. you TJ!!!!

TV played on 4 other songs and also added "backing vocals", so would you add this to the list of TV songs???

Songs were though  Doing the job God put me here for,  War Baby, 2468, Power in the Darknes

Tim got an excellent reaction from the crowd (350+), which was received with his usual modesty.   Only 1 other TUT in evidence..  Mr Fish.. plus Gaye wearing the "we who wait hat!!!"

Early added news is that Tim is to re-visted Maidstone on May 6th (Bank Holiday)

That's all folks........
