Catching up with old friends

A night in Fire Pit Rocks on West Street with old friends Mark Holmes & Angie Holmes, Robert Baker, Brian Webster, Wayne Furniss and Jane Civico. Lots of talk of bands, old times, anus t-shirt, teeth, and food. And several pints drunk including something that tasted like tar!

Carter Tutti And Wrangler

Carter Tutti headlined at a new venue – The Abbeydale Road Picture House. They played Chris & Cosey material and were supported by Wrangler, featuring Mal from Cabaret Voltaire.

Wrangler pulled a bigger crowd of people off all ages, some enjoying the new sounds others reminiscing the good old days.

Great venue. Met up with old friends Mark & Angie Holmes, Rob Baker and Kath Furniss

Clock DVA at The Leadmill with De Tian and PTI

ClockDVA flyer for Leadmill gig

Saw Clock DVA at The Leadmill with De Tian and Prior to Intercourse as support

Nothing could have prepared us for the visual experience on stage this evening. Billed simply as Dancing by Prior to Intercourse there was nothing simple about this “dance” The slow but erratic moving and semi naked body of Robert Baker emerged from beneath a floor of black plastic sheeting. Ripping through while releasing blood dripping inners across the stage, this dance transferred into the audience’s minds as we contemplated the masterpiece of art that left us either shocked, mesmerised or stunned. This was a genius performance, presenting us with something unique that we’d never experienced before and were highly unlikely to ever see again.

Had some African wholegrain rice meal and tried to smoke Bombay Mix through one of Mick Fidler’s Pipes

Strange days. Great gig
