Hey, d'you get my order for the O's 'On The Go' LP and Donnie Howland/Jeff Evans Split 7"? I've emailed you a couple of times but got nowt back. Think I may have blocked you by mistake. I ordered through PayPal and I've got confirmation from them folks. Cheers.

Sounds like a cheeky Manc credit card scam to me. Bleedin' northerners...

Did you see the Ponys? Good, innit? In fact, I think I may well go and see them again on Monday.

I did see the Ponys and they were absolutely fantasmical. I made the trip down to the Birmingham show and it was well worth the drive, even though I got my car kicked by a filthy brummy bastard on the way home. Jered's a really sweet guy. If I could make it on Monday I would surely be there. They played a new song which was pretty special but I dunno if they're gonna be releasing it as a single. Jered said they were hoping to release a UK 7" at some point and that they're gonna be working on the new album in a couple of months.

Next show to look forward to is the Buh Buh Buh Black Lips in Leeds. Woo hoo!

Shit, guess I did block you! So sorry! Thanks for sending it out so quick. Am I really gonna get barfed on? Can't wait. Although I tend to wanna throw up when I see such things happening so it might turn into a 'Stand By Me' barfathon! See you soon.

Why did a brummy kick your car? Was it because you nearly ran him over? He was probably angry because he has to live in Birmingham. I know I would be. 'This toooown becoming like a ghost town'...

what's a brummy?

No fucking reason whatsoever! Must be a brummy thing. I left the show about 2am and was parked down a rather dodgy back alley. I had to walk passed a group of 'lads' (you know the ones - white, short sleeve wearing, get your tits out for the lads shouting types) and they began to jeer. So I upped my walking pace a lil (I was alone) and eventually got to my car. As I was driving passed them, on the way outta the car park, one of them ran over to the car and kicked it. So I drove on a bit further, then stopped. The kicker ran towards the car, expecting me to get out and confront him. As he got within smelling distance of me I drove off again, only to stop a further few metres down the alleyway. He began to run again and once again I drove off as he gained precious metres on me. He was clearly annoyed and embarassed in front of his friends, so I beeped the horn with wild satisfaction as he was left stranded with egg all over his face. I then realised I was heading towards a dead end and had to turn the car around and drive passed them all again. The urge to knock him down was overwhelming, and I woulda got away with it, but my conscience took over and I merely continued on my journey homewards. It made up for a night that was almost ruined by winessing someone wearing an Evanescence t-shirt at a Ponys' show. Although I think he may have been a little bit reatarded, so I'll let him off. Actually, I won't. I couldn't give a shit if he's a reatard, he shouldn't be wearing such a vile garment. It was about ten times too big for him aswell. Jeez, what a reatard. And a fucking brummy reatard at that.

NB: Brummy - slang for a resident of Birmingham.

good morning...oooh Brummies, my favorite is pineapple.

There will be no brummies on the board. They still point at airplanes when they see them.

Sounds like you came across a highly volatile combination of chav/brummy hybrid. You really ought to carry an item of Burberry clothing so that you can wave it and distract them should such confrontations arise in future.

Saw the Ponys again last night. It was good. A band called the Mint Chicks also played, and they were rather good. Hyperactive spazzy singer who jumped behind the bar and threw ice at people. Nice.

Wish I had the option of seeing the Ponys twice! You London folk get all the breaks. I've been enquiring about places to rent in Harrow. I got a chum that lives down that way. What's it like? It ain't posh is it? D'you think it's affordable for someone in my humble position?
Posted: Jun 9, 2004 1:01 pm
It's quite suburban up there from what I remember. A friend of mine used to rent up there. Search on the net for places to rent in that area and call a few estate agents if you have time.

If you find a decent agency you should end up being paid a lot more than what you said you were on up in Manchester, that's for sure. Or you could scour the Guardian job pages for something, like I'm probably going to today. There's plenty of work here, it just depends on how choosy you are. I can help you out with that if you want.

Cheers Mr Guy. My lease for the place I'm in at the moment runs out at the end of August so I may well start looking for places to live/work. Things are a bit crazy at the homestead right now but it should be better in a few months so I won't feel as guilty about leaving. I may request help at a later date - thanks for the offer.

I've just realised that the orignal Napalm Death members came from Birmingham. I take it all back.

Hey Joe,was that the guy at last year's Dot Dash that was wearin' a Sun Ra shirt and hangin' w/ Tim? Big guy,long hair and beardo,looked 45-50 ish?
Posted: Jun 17, 2004 1:08 am
Yeah, that was either him or his boyfriend George! They look alike but Keef was probably wearing a fisherman's hat.
Joe Pestilence
Posted: Jun 17, 2004 6:40 am
Cool shirt! Funny,he didn't look like he had a giant eyeball for a head...or a skull!
Posted: Jul 5, 2004 6:46 am
Jeezus H. Christ. People really do think I walk around with an eyeball on my head.

Yeh, I was at Dot Dash (dropped in to wish Tim a happy 20th with Crypt), probably wearing my black Ra shirt (the purple one was a gift from Sunny himself, so I probably wouldn't have worn it if I thought someone might throw up on it). And I never go out without a fisherman's hat (don't want my head to sunburn, and since I don't have any eyebrows it's a lot better than a headband, a kerchief or a doorag). And yes my partner (he's much more than a boyfriend) George was there too, but he doesn't wear a hat and I think he was wearing a Stereolab shirt, or maybe a Jon Spencer shirt (that's who he wanted to see). Funny how we look alike considering he's got a permanent tan and I gotta go out into the sun and roast to a bleeding crisp to get one. I hear when a couple gets older they start looking alike and I'd rather look like him than me, so that ain't such a bad thing to me.

Oh yeh we got a whole lotta years ahead of us ... Tim's older than us by about 12 years, believe it or not. I thought it was kinda funny because everyone who was in a band there thought I was with some record company and literally threw CD's at me (thanks).

You mean you DON'T wear an eyeball on yer head all the time?? Bummer!

Yeah,that was a bitchin' shirt! the fact you got it direct from Mr.Ra himself means i probably can't buy it at a store or nothin' though...dang. Not that i was in any condition to look for one in the 2-Day Hangover that followed that show! I even missed a chance to go to Coney Island 'cuz i didn't think i could ride in a moving vehicle w/out barfin'! Some tourist i am,hahaha!!!

Posted: Jul 6, 2004 8:14 am
Thanks man ... I love the Sun Ra shirt because all I have to do is wear it and instantly cool people come up to talk to me wherever I am. Kinda like DK's buttons were in the 80's.

One thing I never wear is old Rz shirts. I don't even have any more having given most of my Rz stuff away. I found when I did wear them all these weird people would come up to me and I'm not talking the cool people that were into the Rz -- you know, the ones that didn't buy into the rock star stuff -- the ones that got it. It was always some nut who still believed in all that rock shit scaring me to death, wanting to tell me stupid stuff about how all the Rz ever drank was raspberry beer.

But those costumes, man -- my reaction to them was always "I gotta get this thing off now, cuz if I don't people will think I walk around in it."

Man I should have pulled out some of my Ra goodies while you were here because I gave him a big bag of gourmet jellybeans once decorated with planets and stuff having found out that he loved jellybeans -- we're talking about $40 worth in the 80's. He was delighted and never forgot me again, and always came up to greet me after the show usually bearing a gift of some sort. The Arkestra, man -- they were my Grateful Dead in the 80's and 90's. I *always* made an effort to see them as often as possible.

They still make the shirt though. Catch them the next time they hit Maxwell's or Columbia University and you can get one. The one that I was wearing was one that I got from Malcolm Tent in Danbury, CT. I do wear the one that Sunny gave me but not to a punk gig. I didn't want the Black Lips guy pulling that pissing stunt that he's notorious for wrecking it, in case I happened to be the one that he hit with the stream. I remember loving their set because there was all this tension whether he was going to whip his dick out and do it but he didn't.
