Thanks again to Patrycja for this. It's nice to see a video of us that is not predominantly red.

Slight Change

Today's running order has changed a bit. Guns or knives are on first and we are now on third as opposed to last as advertised below.

Where's That Copper When You Need Him Badly?

Nitkowski have had to pull out of this weekends London and Brighton shows because Dan can't leave the house due to his broken ankle. Ed has said that if he catches the driver he is going to kill him. Plague Sermon are not playing the Brighton show either as the venue is being petty and won't let them play. The shows now look like this

Saturday, Brighton;
9.45 - 10.15 Lamp!
9.00 - 9.30 Silent Front
8.15 - 8.45 It Often Takes a War
7.30 - 8.00 Fat Bicth
6.45 - 7.15 replacement band

Sunday, Brixton;
9.30 - 10.15 Silent Front
8.30 - 9.15 Fat Bicth
7.30 - 8.15 Plague Sermon
BBQ Break
5.30 - 6.00 It Often Takes a War
4.45 - 5.15 Lamp!
4.00 - 4.30 replacement band

At least, that is the running order that I read in an email. It's gonna be a banger, just a shame that Nitkowski can't play it.

Bite My Tongue And Do It For The Dogs

Phil and Gareth were involved in a bus crash last Friday night, Phil broke Gareth's fall and Phil got a cut on his head which required some stitches. Gareth has a sore arm. I would have been on the bus too but I stayed home as I couldn't walk after sustaining an injury to my left foot whilst walking. Nothing hit it, I didn't turn my ankle or anything like that, just walking at normal pace for five hours. Also, Dan from Nitkowski broke his ankle in a cycling accident earlier the same day and had to stay in hospital for a few days. He's had some pins inserted to hold the ankle together and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Just to summarise, I've made a league table of the injuries.

  1. Dan [broken ankle, required metal pins to hold the ankle together] 10pts
  2. Phil [massive gash on his head requiring stitches] 8pts
  3. Gareth [bus crash, injured his arm falling] 5pts
  4. Russell [sore foot from walking] -1pt


This week has turned into something resembling a tour with six shows in nine days! The only difference is we are still going to work.

Saturday night in Halifax was a banger and the crowd, Cuss Words, Juffage, Andy, Tom and Jay [the promoters] were ace. Tom [Cuss Words, not promoter] showed us his little fella. Sunday night was also very good despite the rain. It was good to see Common Deflection Problems and Cutthroat Convention again and have a bit of a chin wag with them. Also, Bogong in Action were brilliant and very nice people too.

The four shows left are Guildford - The Backline w/ Clean Kitchen & Poino, Kingston - The Fighting Cocks w/ Nitkowski, Clean Kitchen & Poino. Then we have a London to Brighton [and then back again] six band weekender. First show is in Brighton at The Green Door Store then it's back to London for the Brixton Windmill show [includes BBQ]. The bands on the weekender are Nitkowski, It Often Takes a War, Fat Bicth, Lamp, Plague Sermon and us.

Hopefully see you at a show.
