    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    For some reason he was not allowed to sell it in the venue, as he made reference to having some in his bag, and to catch him on the way out if we wanted one, but he wouldn't be hanging about, or wtte. We had noticed that there was no merch stall. Because we came in during the support act and as there had been no mention of a support we didn't (and still don't) have a clue who they were. So I looked (as nobody else seemed to know either!) but there was nothing, not even merch for CC, which is unusual.

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    A friend of mine of mine saw them a couple of weeks ago; said pretty much the same.I'll also have to look out for them round these parts again. I used to vaguely know a bloke who used to come into the pub where I worked and I'm sure that he worked as a session musician with them and he hung himself in his kitchen. ETA It was the drummer https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Wilkinson- if I remember rightly his poor children found him. Yeah, things that amazed me about China Crisis 1 - They are funny in the sarcy and grim northern manner of The Smiths 2 - They are actually a damn good show. 3 - Their history is - to say the least - troubled, along with the suicide one of the main duo also assaulted their manager to the point that criminal charges were on the way before a mutual parting was agreed which saved a prison sentence but also did serious harm to their career (apart from anything else, it gave them trouble finding new management with any - no pun intended - clout). China Crisis came to our neck of the woods tonight, so I took up the recommendations since they were an 80s band I'd never seen. We really enjoyed it (although my mate could not recall a single one of their songs ). Great banter and entertaining all round. Going to Hyde Park on Sunday for the Radio 2 event which is a rather mixed bag to say the least. The people who talked me into going have dropped out but I shall be happy to see Bananarama and Status Quo, and intend to use the Westlife set to improve my position ready for the Pet Shop Boys. Woof woof!

    They Say We're Sick

    "Authored" ..... <shudders>
  6. Shouldn't that be in Political Frailty? Oh, it is.
  7. What about this then? Man goes on a business trip, picks up a stranger in the hotel and dies of a heart attack while having sex with her. The French court decides it was an industrial accident so his company has to pay compensation. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-49662134 One for the "you couldn't make it up" file.

  10. I don't think you can complain about that, there have been quite a few so far.

    Death Links

    I like that.
  12. One of his ancestors was possibly the father of one of my illegitimate ancestors. I personally am not convinced. I expect it was the butler, or one of the gardeners or stable boys.
  13. What an extraordinary statement.

    For once I agree with Robert. Isn't there a pop star thread?

    The Chequered Flag

    No, he had plenty of those, just not one so far that satisfies the DDP, unless I missed it.

    The Chequered Flag

    Since we're still waiting on a Robin Herd QO, I'd say so.
  19. Oooh! He could have gone in the Farmers thread.
  20. And the beeswax, don't forget that.
