Uli - how did the "pants" sneak into the translation? Did they mean "perhaps"?

I can only imagine it originated from "Die Toten Hosen"? Hosen = trousers or pants?  ???
That part of the translation is really strange...

Good to see TV Smith is coming back to Leeds in November.

Thus time it's with The Bored Teenagers.

If The Library is where I think it is, it's the old Feast and Firkin pub where Dave Sanders of Elland (now at GreyHawk) started his brewing career. The World Just Got Smaller Again. :)

Great gig at the Boar's Head in Kidderminster last night at a new venue (both pub & town) for TV. Nice friendly place although I couldn't figure out what the "Pirates of the Caribbean" decor had to do with the pub's name. Perhaps it's a local thing although I didn't see many galleons on the river Stour! Perhaps next time, we'll get the whole of "Crossing the seven (red) Seas!
Till then, we were treated to a 33 song set including (as well as the usual suspects) some rarer live outings such as "Haves and the Have Nots", "The Servant", "The Beautiful Bomb" and "Fire In The Darkness".

So, Mrs Taff fancied a trip to Hampton Court Palace...  which nicely tied in with a visit to Kingston Upon Thames..  And a bonus was seeing Stones Heroes and The Morgellons for the 1st time..

I had deliberately avoided links to Stone Heroes stuff as I wanted to hear them live first and.  (and I am not beiing "lickety-spit" to Mr Fleagle) what an excellent band they are.  A 35 minute set was well received by a healthy audience, the sound was just about right, despite Mrs Taff sitting right by the speakers!!.  The chance to purchase their 2 EP's and a T Shirt did not go amiss either.
The Morgellons did a 30 minute set, which was also very good, especially for a first-timer like me..

Our man Smith came on stage at a couple of minutes to 10 and produced the usual great set, this time of 20 songs, mainly due a 11pm curfew.

Flavour, 21, Replay, CTIL, 3rd Term, Cutbacks, Future, Wait, Lion, Delete, Expensive, Have & Have nots (1st live hearing for me), Imm Rich, GBM, Gen Y, String, GGE, BT, OCW and an encore of RTD (despite Fleags not being available for a Conga (he was manning the Merch!!)

Nice to meet Sylvia (Haas) at the gig, she recognised  me from EB2011 in Essen, when I was roadie for Vom's cymbals as they raced acrossed the stage, persued by a "drumming monkey"....  Steve The Fish was in attendance as was (of course) Mrs Fleagle.

Also, I was asked by another young lady if I was "an original-punk" as she liked hearing stories of the "old-days"!!!!  Turned out she is Andy Tracey's (TRB, Faithless etc) "other-half.

Anyhow an excellent evening  and  even Hampton Court wasn't bad..  despite being there for almost 6 hours.....

Thanks for the review!  8)
And for saving us from becoming the Adam Ant Forum!  ;)

I liked it, been there in 2012.

I didn't even remember there were TV & BT shows planned when I first heard about BBQ (he's on the mend, but has to stay in his hospital bed for a bit).
Here's TV announcement from FB:
Quote
Some of you following me on Facebook may already know that my good friend, and bass player for the Bored Teenagers, Jonathan "BB Quattro" was rushed into hospital over the weekend to have emergency surgery to treat an intestinal perforation and to have his appendix removed. The operation went well and he is doing fine but has to stay in hospital for the foreseeable future so obviously this means that the band are unable to come to Germany for the planned gigs this week. And now the good news...I've agreed with all the venues involved to come over anyway to play the gigs solo - and for the first of them in Duisburg I'll even be joined by my old mate Vom Ritchie for a rare TVOM! show. So here's the full list, hope to see you there! Wed 29/4 DUISBURG - Steinbruch (TV Smith & Vom Ritchie) Early show - on stage 20:30! Thu 30/4 BREMEN - Lila Eule (TV solo). Fri 1/5 HELIGOLAND - Rock'n'Roll Butterfahrt festival (TV solo - I hope to bring the band back for next year!). Sat 2/5 CUXHAVEN - Musikbar Franzler (TV solo). Sun 3/5 ESSEN - Anyway (this was always planned as a solo gig and still is!) VERY EARLY show because it's Sunday. Doors 17:00, on stage 18:00!!

Hi,
is anyone in Düsseldorf for the Gig tonight and might can save 2 places for us? We're driving there from Karlsruhe, but might arrive later than planned due to work trouble at my friends place and the venue does not reserve tickets :(
Don't fancy driving the long way there and then not getting in...

It's free entry so will be difficult to reserve places! Hope you manage to squeeze in...think I'll be on stage quite early.
