Exploits of the Frictionless Man as it wanders around the world like some kind of slippery hydra. Music, words and pictures a speciality.

Paint with glue first, then hit with a hammer. Not that hammer though.

Good gig on Saturday night, despite having to walk through some tropical storm to get there. A cold tropical storm.

We played pretty well, despite being a bit nervous. The Singleton is not as relaxing a venue as the Tavern, or maybe it was because it was the first time I have ever played there. The audience is higher than you and the playing area is a pit like affair, which made it seem a bit more like dog fighting. I think it will be more enjoyable if we play there again.

The King of Despair were very good, they played two lovely sets with a bit more rock in it then usual, perfect for the atmospshere I think. They pulled a decent crowd as well, which was good to play to. The audience seemed to like what we did and we got plenty of applause after every song. How gratifying. I think it is time to cast aside the last vestige of my humble protestant up-bringing and start revelling in the adulation. That's half the point of doing it after all. The other half being money and the other half being able to afford maths lessons.

Next gig is in the Tavern on the 13th supporting Satori. We should have a couple of extra tunes by then: "What Kind of Rock" and "Save from Any/All/Some". And we will have CDs for sale at £3.00 each featuring Car Crash, Hotel Whose Name I Forget, Lay it Down and Substance.

Is that enough?

But I left the band ages ago!

The monkey was real?

It talks?

It types?

It's really a moose?

My mistake... I always assumed that the monkey was a hallucination brought on by too many live yoghurts. I shall immdiately desist in my monkey requests.

Did you ask for that? I bet you did...

If someone has posted that in response to my request for Sandy, Pigsy and Tripitaka then I am deeply deeply concerned about the type of porn that must be available out there...

They must search for posts with overtones of desperation in them and, naturally, offer porn!?
