I don’t have time for this

Sitting down is good. I’ve spent so long on the back foot this past week that I’ve worn the sole out. My own fault as always, I’ve even left someone without heating for a week because I forgot all about them. Jesus.
However, by this time tomorrow I won’t be so worried as I’ll be watching the last of Gary Numan’s set at the ABC in Glasgow. Really looking forward to it as he’s playing songs I haven’t heard him play in 20 years or more. Aye, Gary Numan, I’m not all about metal. In fact you’re as likely to hear me listening to swing or big band music as you are metal. Benny Goodman rocks. 
Since I got into music in the 70’s I still like almost eveything I ever got into, maybe only Father Abraham and the Smurfs doesn’t get as many plays as other stuff these days. And the Doctor Who sound effects record too, it’s a bit dusty.

I’m pretty sure I was the only person I knew who had a Tubeway Army patch sewn onto the denim cut-off I wore over my biker jacket. That’s something I was thinking about the other day, I’m pretty sure my cut-off is somewhere at my folks house, still covered in badges, patches and autographs. Tony Iommi is on there in black marker, and in a roundabout way that’s why that came to mind, Sabbath played in Birmingham the other day and I didn’t go. I saw the YouTube footage and I’m not sorry I missed it, three out of four original members isn’t Black Sabbath it’s, I dunno, a satanic Pacman? Think about that analogy…

This weather though, it’s kind a nice, what’s the chances of it sticking around I wonder. Thinks about tents ever so briefly and inappropriately given the current scheduling shambles.
Still had to time to fanny about with the blog style sheet though. Oh, the fonts I have in store for the logo.

  1. I know how you feel, always something else to do. Doing some panic training at the moment as off down to Wales to try and keep up with Kelvin this weekend?!?! Along with everything else I’m all over the place.

    Looks like the weathers about for a little while, better make the most of it. Don’t know when it’ll be back. I’m always thinking about gear and being outside when I’m supposed to be doing something else.

    Enjoy the concert, whens yours BTW? (comments from previous post) Catch up with you soon…

  2. Have fun down there, I’ll look forward to hearing all about it.

    Hopefully rehearsing with the bass player next week, if it goes well and he sticks it out (we have a bad track record with bass players) it shouldn’t take us long to get ready to play. We’ll have to hurry before I get any older.

  3. Me too! Contemplated leaving the customer with no kitchen, so I could go climbing, but just felt too guilty, so didn’t. Trouble is, by the time I get chance the weather will have gone.

    Re- Gary Newman.-Liked the popular stuff that was put out, ”Cars” and ”Our friends electric”, but never bought anything. Did catch his interview with Johnny Walker on R2 a few weeks back and found it very interesting. Brought memories of my teens rushing back. Hope the concert’s good.

  4. It was great, played both of thoses songs and plenty more besides.
    Six blokes on stage, great light show, perfect sound and an hour and forty five minutes of music for £25. Add the enthusiam in the performance and it puts many others to shame.
    Cuppa then bed though, I’m kanackered.
