I played before billy nasty one night- he came on at 1 and upped the tempo from about 126 to 130 straight way. He opened with this

followed by loads of sourmash and prolekult stuff..

The fourth flyer massively re-enforcing my prog credentials there wink

That masters at work night was one of my favourite warm up sets actually, quality night...

So the transatlantic total is about 280 quid (300 if SeanC's is found )?

How are flight prices looking? Can't imagine they'll have got any cheaper over the month we've been talking about this..

Same here.

The rest of the 'pledgers' who haven't coughed up yet need to pull their fingers out PDQ!

tbf, the 'boro gig should be co-sharing some of the flight costs. I just hope that they'll be sorting out a decent hotel for Friday and a reasonable flight time back to the city to meet the pre-fabric gig.

It's nothing special... Just a small gig for an old mate that pays £40 and his couch.   It's more an opportunity to play than anything, because transport will likely cost me that much too and from the Big Smoke.

The train fare alone will be more like 80 quid, if it's booked well in advance.

no comment - see games thread wink

Given the company you'll be in in London, this is a bold statement, and one that will be put to the test. wink

Right..funds transferred.

I'd better start thinking of an excuse to get out of the social gathering my Mrs had planned for the 19th!

Send one my way then, chief..

Has it been sorted out where Jay is staying, should this actually happen?

I'm guessing he won't be able to afford a hotel, has someone volunteered to let him slobber all over their sofa? wink

Oh yes. If loopy is in the smoke I'm out, all guns blazing, kitchen sink ahoy

I'm in!

More than happy to chuck in 20quid for this!

The company I was interning (BPM) with took care of all the marketing and PR for the US release. got to hang out with the director, Paul Kaye - watched the premiere etc etc. So maybe a soft spot. The coke badger was pretty cool, gotta give the movie that at least. I remember GU life enjoying it at the time.

Eh Rhouses?  The film was directed by Michael Dowse.  Kaye, while he  he did so quite well, just acted in it.  The people behind It's All Gone Pete Tong were the same people behind FUBAR - which is a bit of a cult classic.  Canadian of all things.

I'm surprised Berlin Calling hasn't got a mention here.  Quality film.  Quality music.  Actual DJ/actor doing the acting.  Probably written off by you lot because it's not in English.

Paul Kaye is often to be seen in  tescos, Finchley Central. Trufax.

Bollocks.  Got quite a lot of time for O'Dowd but let's not pretend he ever had anything to do with 'prog' in any of its various definitions...

I'd say the closest Boy George has come to prog is when Quivver remixed Time


Given that he co-wrote Zee - Dreamtime, I'd say otherwise. That said, I'm not saying he's a prog legend..

But he may have the drop on smallman when it comes to prog credentials wink

I thought he wouldn't be able to get a visa with a criminal record

He'll probably just be on a tourist visa, which doesnt require a criminal background check as far as I recall.

He's the owner, not the chef..;)
