yeah, and he played on the first Neutrons Lp ! (credited as Pique)

And he probably played on the first Sain single by Ac Eraill (credited as Pic)

Sorry it took a while Joan but there was a problem with loading images.

 :) Rang Pontardawe Arts Centre this afternoon and got through to a very helpful lady who sold me a single ticket for the Sep 18 concert and charged only an extra 50p to post it. Top marks.  ;D

She said very few balcony tickets @ 15 remain, but there are no problems with the downstairs standing tickets @ 12.50 yet.

See you there folks!  ;)

As no-one has said anything yet I will.
The scrolling gig guide for the tribute part 2 says that tickets are "avaliable".
Aaaaaaaaaaah. That's better.

Yes, and I've found ICEBURG lots of times.
Even in a concert ticket!

"Warning - High Intensity Noise" - Excellent

A very early example of litigation blockage.

In those days you would have expected "Warning - High Intensity Noise - Or Your Money Back"

Think I might have been at that one - Tweke just joined? I don't remember Vyv though. What did he do - was it poetry?

Was this venue litigation proof or just boring..........

I remember seeing this show line up, sort of.  It's been a while...  Don't remember what Spiv did in the September tour, but...

The Christmas Party had Vyvian (Spiv) Morris [apologies if I've spelt the name incorrectly) doing what was loosely described as a Panto.  I think it had some sort of chemical theme and have some recollection of a hugely oversized syringe. 
Don't remember much else apart from the police sirens at the end of Life On The Road (which needs to be written in full as this could end up being sidetracked into a film about Hobbits and rings - don't remember any police in that, though) being so loud I couldn't face getting up for school the next  morning.
Oh yes, school.  As I said, it's been a while.

Just wondering if Life On The Road was inspired by Lord Of The Rings.  Some similar themes, particularly if you consider the content of WR&L!

This line-up was the first time I saw Man, so I remember it well. Spiv did some fairly crazy stuff with a giant Rizla packet and (I'm pretty sure) a huge phallus, and almost certainly the routines which crop up on Happy Daze. Iceberg were fabulous, John St Field a bit self-indulgent (wasn't he being billed as a ridiculously talented multi-instrumentalist? it just seemed like showing off to us!) and Man of course were mind-blowing, at the height of their powers. This was all in the Caley Cinema in Edinburgh. I had slipped away from boarding school to attend, sneaking out through a studyroom window. Because I was supposed to be working late, I was in my regulation issue schoolboy slippers and forgot to change out of them. Made stamping the cinema floor to demand an encore a bit of a waste of time. But I still have the skeleton t-shirt I bought that night. Happy days indeed.

Couldn't even hazard a guess as to how many times I've listened to that, but it still never ceases to amaze me.  Can't imagine how impressive it would be if I actually understood how to play it.

Roll on the 18th.

Pink G still the preffered meeting place for Saturday?  If it looks as if it might be the last meet, I better get my butt up there for my first.
