It's COMING!!!

Wednesday, 28 October 2009


We've started up a new band - City Shanty Band - providing a fine excuse to get lots of friends together and drink gallons of rum. Then, loud and joyfully, we sing songs about drinking rum.

You can become a 'fan' here, or at least have a good laugh at the spectacular photo's first mate Land Leave Losing took of some of us...

my favourite line still remains...."arse of lard and face like pig" leading onto....."my uncles pick-up trucks not that big" - pats on the back Captain Benseye!

Killing bankers with anchors is in there somewhere as well is it not?

Probably not.

Barny's Backdrop

We took our backdrop out for an airing last week and stuck in to the side of our house. I forgot how good it was! Barny really knows her way around a sewing machine.

Hey, just a quick one to let you know a little bit about our proposed Bad Taste Carnival, as per attachments. I think it's important to put up posters and info a good few weeks before hand to give people a chance to think about preparing their costumes. An event like this needs people making an effort. We're thinking of having a subtle Roman Theme, banquets and bumming that sort of thing.

Here's a few questions for you to....

Can we do a prize for most foully dressed?
Can we put a cage around your bar?
Can we install a vomitorium, perhaps in the back yard?
Can we cover the floor with hay?
Can we have a real pig's head as part of the banquet installation?

I wish all emails i sent where like this.

I'm on my way over to yours to steal some meat so I'll see you in a jiffy

If I had of been sent to Jerusalem to build crucifix's Jesus would probably have died of old age.

Meet Cilla Zack

Every Wednesday night the Stags Head (55 Orsman Road) plays host to an inspired event called Blind Drunk Date, hosted by Cilla Zack (real name, Zack. it was meant to be!). The game is remarkably similar to the TV show I remember from my youth. There's the mysterious Graeme, the cheesy title sequences, and even a screened video of last weeks winning couple on their date, which from what I could tell was basically the two of them getting drunk for free in the beer garden.

The Sea Mistress

Ain't she beautiful!

Burslem - A Town That Time Forgot

I've just spent my weekend in Stoke-on-Trent. I was staying on my girlfriends barge, the Sea Mistress, which is currently being pimped up and resides in dry docks 1 mile outside of Tunstal (birthplace of Robbie Williams) and 1/2 mile away from Burslem. These are strange places. There's little or no up-keep happening here. Most of the pub's are boarded up, the street signs are either missing or falling off and a lonely Woolworth's sits empty, appearing not to have been touched since it's closure 9 months ago. I met twins Mick and Morris at the Middleport Environment Centre Recycling Shop, who were happy to have their photograph taken. They gave me a giant rainbow pencil. They told me most of the shop windows have been replaced with perspex because 'youths keep kicking them in'. A fairly typical small midland town.
These photo's are the first installment from a new project called 'Towns Time Forgot'

Rhythms Of Life

For the past week I've been helping out at a charity shop/soup kitchen in Dalston. I work in the shop during the day then at 4pm I go to collect all the un-sold sandwiches from Pret, eat a few, then take them back to the shop. Then we make huge pots of tea and serve it with a slice of cake, donated from an EAT shop. Everyone gets 2 sandwiches a night and also a bowl of soup. It's a fairly rank brew that I have only dared to eat once. They asked me to cook but I said that I didn't have it in me to make anything nearly that foul.
