Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest

I'm sorry I haven't written anything here for a while. I've been very busy.

It was my second gig night on Friday. It went very well, as many, if not more, people than last time and some great bands. Some excellent DJing at the end from Will and Jamie as well. Thanks to all my friends who read this who turned up.

The final band of the night, The Mules, are f'in great. They finished with an encore performance of 'The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down' by the Band. Absolutely incredible. On their myspace the Mules state that they like both types of music, country and western. A great country based party band. Absolutel legends. Go and see them if you can.

Some of the artists I played inbetween the bands included: The Boss, the Hold Steady, Lucero, The Stones, Kenny Rogers, the Lovin' Spoonful, the Kingsmen, The Stone Roses, BRMC, Wilco. Surprisingly I didn't play any Dylan. Don't know why really, just didn't feel like it. I should have though.

The night ended with much drunkeness. I ended up enjoying the night to it's fullest and got properly drunk, once all of my duties were completed. Before I went home, I decided to go to the toilet and thought that it would be a good idea to go, although I didn't want to be a chav and saw a builders portaloo on a construction site across the road. In my drunken stupor I broke into the site and used the portaloo. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but I broke the law to not break another. It did make sense in a bizarre twisted way.

My review of the Great Escape festival is up at Rockbeatstone. Also I'm aware that many of you are reading this through facebook. That's cool, just wanted you to know that I have a proper blog and this updates automatically...I'm not a facebook junkie or anything.
