A million things, but mostly Merry Hell.

Been meaning to write for ages, about Tom going abroad to not get blown up, me climbing all over the place and regularly nailing HVS leads again now, fun things like the Gathering and similar, but the thing that’s got me to here is the Merry Hell gig that I’ve just been to.
Think Tansads. But (as Oz pointed out) it’s like Tansads but at our age. Think reaching for a cup of tea at the end of the set rather than another beer 😉
The new stuff is excellent. Some bloody good vocal gymnastics – the new lasses voice is bob on and Andrews is as good as it was on the last album. Great new songs, only a couple of weakish ones, the rest rocked impressively. A bit more folky than Tansads, but very comparible. Well, there are 5 members still on stage!
They announced another gig in Wigan sometime in July – keep an eye on the Facebook page. Think I’m busy then but will shift what I can.
People – I can strongly recommend this. You won’t be disappointed.

Zooming about …

Busy weekend. Friday was a flexi, supposed to be climbing with Tom but after finding a damp patch on the wall whilst cleaning, had to resort to a house day of ripping bathroom to bits & re-sealing. We ended up on a dash to Southport to watch the Eagle – good moovie.
Saturday was a 30th doo down at Alton Towers. Charly’s joined the land of the aged, and we celebrated this by trying to to throw up. Did very well, and no tears from any of us (though some whimpering was occasionally heard). Some of them rides are a bit quick (0-100kph in 2 secs????). Back to Charly & Phlegms for a world of curry, then back home to get kip before heading down to the relatives nr Stourbridge today. Good run down and back, failed to get a usb broadband dongle working on a pc after several hours of working on it – resigned to the fact that it ain’t gonna work. Damn wierd DNS voodooness.

Off to the pub tonight, Gally’s back & are due a catchup. And Nige allegedly has bottles of stuff to sample on the cheap. Here’s hoping it’s quiet on the phones tomorrer.
