I’ve decided to post a few posts from my old blog which I had before I installed WordPress, they have been languishing in the database completely unreadable. They may be complete trash but I figured I’d post them anyway.

At the time I was working as a “Roadie” doing technical and non technical stuff at gigs across Glasgow

The only editing I’ve done to this was to correct the abysmal spelling…

So this is officially my uh first blog post, that’s nice I have no idea what to write here apart from that this is officially my first post on my very own uh blog. Isn’t that nice…

What did I do today, very little to be quite frank, woke up got phoned and asked if I could be in King tuts for 2 (this was at half 1) I looked at watch and realised this and said no… I went back to bed and got phoned again asking if I could be in tuts for 8 to this I said yes…  So I went to Tuts at 8 exactly what happened between 2ish and 8 is beyond me. I know that I left the flat at seven and I know that checking my email was involved possibly even some Slashdot might have been involved as well bumped into Gav outside Buchanan street underground and uh bought 4 doughnuts for 40p (I think they were gonna go off in a day or so, oh well they can go off in my belly) gave one to the homeless guy outside Sainsburys and went to Rufus T-firefly for a pint of Cola. I got to Tuts and found out who was playing it was Damien Rice supported by Carrie Tree. Was not impressed Damien Rice is playing the Academy early next year and thats about the only time I had heard of him.

I usually hate the bands that I work for, for instance The Cosmic Rough Riders were terrible on Friday although it was funny seeing the bands family members enjoying the gig (they are a Glasgow band).

Anyway back to today: Carrie Tree was inoffensive, quiet hippie music single guitar one little girl in a sari singing about stuff that make hippies happy it would seem. Stuff she wrote in Australia and India, sleepy music like I said inoffensive not bad but not particularly good. Damien Rice however was actually quite good this was the first time I have been pleasantly surprised by a gig I have worked at that I had never heard of the artist before since Gerry Cantrel played at the Garage a while ago (even then I just didn’t know that he was the front man thing from Alice in Chains that was quite a good gig too) Very calm mellow rock with and amazing voice and some funky effects, Damien Rice that is, the guys Irish and they can all apparently sing so I am lead to believe…

Um after Tuts I went to The Cathouse with Chuck and stayed there till closing, walked most of the way home with Chuck, Roland and Roland’s Girlfriend Caroline, theorising about the ways of taxis and you know it never rains but it pours 40 minutes and an obtuse route home and we find 5 free taxis in the one place took one to byres road, paid for it and walked home, had to slow down because of scary drunk man who was actually cutting a zig zagged path accross the road, waited till he passed by the door to my flat and made a rush for it.

Home sweet home found out that Sam had sorted out my webspace, cheers Sam. and uh have been fiddling with it ever since.

I’m going to go to bed now as it is 6:15 on Sunday morning and I have to be in King Tuts at 4pm tomorrow to do The Jeevas I managed to avoid them last year at The QM’s Freshers week but then again then I thought they might be quite good I have since learnt that Kula Shaker (of whom the Jeevas feature Chrispin Mills) are more stoner crap music than the banging hip hop dance trance that I thought they might be for some reason I got them mixed up with Leftfield who are quite good. Any way need to sleep…

I only have one hope and that is that all the Html links in this are parsed properly, well that and that I get to sleep in a reasonable amount of time. Um thats two I could go for the whole Monty Python joke thing and say well I have only two hopes and add a third one but to be quite frank I can be arsed and I cant think of a third hope apart from something miss worldy like world peace and that’s a shit hope because it will never happen.

Good night.
