Re: Simon Gallup

Totally agree with this. :notworthy: Along with Hooky he's been my favourite bass player for the last 30+ years (not quite the 40 they've been around!). Awesome bass player. I remember my 16-yr old head imploding one night in Brighton at the first notes played. Been a fan since. (Although i do reca...

A true originator, a mad genius if there was ever one. I love so much of his work. We were lucky to have him.

Did you get Pfizer?
I'm living in New Zealand, we're getting Pfizer - it's the only one available to us. Had the first one now, apparently we're the lowest vaccinated country in the first world (but then our Government are like children playing at governing).

That's really sad.
No it isn't. He wasn't good enough, so on he goes.

His behaviour during a game against Leeds Utd was simply unacceptable, won't be forgotten.

Invite yourself to theirs or twist their arms on their backs until they invite you, this film is worth losing a friend. More a collection of short films than a singl...

Frank Turner in Auckland on Friday night was superb. Amazing energy. Surprised at the size of the venue considering the size of arenas he plays elsewhere. Played a lot of the last three albums which is Ok by me, plus a sort of segue of older tunes.

Thanks everyone. As I type this, Bday was yesterday. Got a fine bourbon as a gift from Mrs B and a box of Thorntons from the mini-Bs (not easy to find down in NZ)

Go Olivers Army. Cmon Leeds. Lay me down the long white line.

I researched a few links to recent Peter Murphy shows, and I have to say I will not be going to the Auckland gig after all.

Also, what about The Dead Kennedys (without Jello)? Any thoughts? I've heard bad things. Not seem 'em myself though. Yeah, I thought I'd give it a miss - was asked to go with a friend. I'm fairly over going to too many 40th Anniversary type gigs - Undertones and SLF recently (both good, but still)....
