YOUR MISSION, SHOULD YOU WISH TO ACCEPT IT...



I'm looking forward with great anticipation to this gig, not least because its for The Mission To Seamen. We need that place. Bands have practiced there since time immemorial and sometimes you can find a CD you've been looking for for ages at one of their numerous table top sales.

It helps homeless people and supports the fishing industry, as well as being a meeting place used by many diverse groups. In short The Mission to Seamen is a resource worth keeping.

As well as The Forefathers (check out the new tunes they've put up) and The DTs, two well established bands, The John Does are going to be on. I've so far managed to miss them several times due to arriving late at gigs. This time I'm determined to catch them relentlessly pulsating in a trancelike way.

Here's a taster...



Throbthrobthrobthrobthrob...

Nice poster too.

STOP PRESS: The Forefathers have a new drummer called Phil Cochran (possibly with a different spelling. I've used the Eddie Cochran spelling there to keep things a bit Rock and a bit Roll) who'll be making his debut at The Rezz. Phil plays guitar as well, and the band have been rehearsing acoustic stuff together too. It'd be good to see a bit of that sometime.

Of course their original drummer Alan Boyes will be in action with The John Does, so its a perfect chance to contrast and compare.

ANOTHER EXTRA STOP PRESS: I have been reliably informed that Steve Scott of The Forefathers is in fact the John Does' drummer. If this is indeed the case, It means this blog has already fallen victim to inaccuracy after only two posts.

Sorry, three posts.

C'mon Everybody!
