mmm happy lou. tired, sore, happy lou :)

well didn't this one go off a treat?

at last the audience got a life and had a bit of fun...it did make a
difference you know... :)

no set list from me, obviously the batting of the eyelids didn't work on
this security guard, dammit. John M got one - did anyone else? post it please!

new songs again - Capricornia, Overpass, Golden Age, Too Much Sunshine,
Tone Poem...was there another?

old songs have in fact slipped from my brain as I type...don't ask me, ask
them...oh, Weapon again, Only the Strong...ummm...

that pesky Worker standing centre front caught a stick again :)
hello Rob and Dominique, pleased to meet you!

and hello to Michael, as opposed to the other Michael :) glad you spotted
Little Miss at last...

Jim was wearing a hand-me-down from Krusty, who thoughtfully put herself on
the opposite side of the stage so that I could hear the gig this

we decided that we liked power drummers better than lazy-arse drummers, but
that was made easier by dint of the fact that Rob was the power drummer
being used as an example :)

Martin was in fine form and even cracked a smile at one point...no really!
I was thinkin', at one point, that these guys must really like each other,
or something - there was Peter, slapping his chest and making sweat fly
bloody everywhere, standing right next to Martin, who just took it and kept
on playing...you know, there's very few people I'd take that from! :)

Ollie was quite obsessed with Bones' footwear - can anyone confirm if they
were, in fact, Homy-Peds?

Krusty has been sworn to secrecy in regards to Ollies Incident, but I
haven't...there was a very very VERY drunk chick up the front at the gig
who took a very strong fancy to Ollie...was it the goatee? was it the
accent? she was very...ummm...persistant, by all accounts...heh...he spent
the rest of the night dodging her. I don't think he had to worry much - she
couldn't focus beyond the end of her nose...

Peter did an excellent rant, quite a long one and even part of it written
down, culled from previous rants and expanded...nice one...the audience
were the best behaved during that than I have experienced for quite some
time...but I think there's a lot of people who want to hear it at the
moment. it felt almost like a return to the mid-80's, if you know what I
mean? there should have been Hari-Krishnas handing out green cordial a la
Palm Sunday marches :)

hope whoever gets to the Parra gigs has fun...I wish I was going now...

but enough of this self-indulgence!

it was triffic,
the boys went off,
the audience went off,
we had a tops time.
nuff said.

...but will be finishing off at Wyong....will see some of you there!

over and out,
