    2. Was it Las Vegas again Norrie?

      You missed yersel when you wis away! Scotland got beat at the rugby and the same themes are repeated on the wireless!

    3. Och come on, keep up. He crossed the world to see Broooooce.

      And it rendered him speechless.

    4. Thanks folks. Trip was utterly fantastic and best Springsteen gig in a long time, very luck with the set list. Lots of catching up to do with work and stuff... Vegas for Thanksgiving DC and yes the more things change the more they stay the same!

    2. I've only heard them once on GIO. A song that nobody had requested strangely enough!

      Delete
    3. Tom Morton played some Gong a few months back..

      I keep asking for some Jackie Leven, one day, perhaps.. Although it fits tonights topic quite well..

    1. Mr anonymous above. He turned up a few months ago then disappeared. Reminiscing is the theme tonight I think.

    5. I've asked for There Will Be Fireworks.

      Hahahahhahhahhahhahhahahhahhahhaaaaa

      hey, Billy, forgot to tell you, Kevin McDermott was in our school on Monday working with p6 on the Absent Voices art/music/whatever project (it's to do with the sugarsheds)

      Delete
    6. Was he dressed up as Tate, Lyle or Cube?

      Delete
    7. Great choice Gaie. Sounds like an interesting project.

      Delete
    8. It is, Billy, several interesting people are involved and it seems to be reaching far into the community. The sugarsheds were used for live music at the Tall Ships and the vague (I think it may be very vague) idea is that they should be transformed into art space (a mini Tate) and possibly a music venue too. Maybe - I doubt if there's money available, with Riverside Inverclyde under close scrutiny now. The spin-off just now is very enjoyable however!

      Delete
    9. I was there for the Tall Ships.

  8. The boy stood on the burning deck,

  12. I can think of an awful lot of songs that make GIO feel uneasy, in fact I could do a list of McCafferty proportions.

    But there's a rainbow outside, maybe I'll go chase it instead.

    2. I blame the negativity of those Better Together types.

    3. We believed we'd catch the rainbow
      Ride the wind to the sun
      And sail away on ships of wonder
      But life's not a wheel
      With chains made of steel
      So bless me, oh bless me, bless me
      Come the dawn

      Ah Ronnie James, you and your whips and chains.

      This morning BB ran so fast on MacAulay's show he forgot how to add up.

    2. Hey Jx, how long a walk you up fer? If it's the coastal walk, there's great wee stretches of anything fae a couple o miles tae, well, right round the kingdom!

      Try Elie tae Anster at about 5 miles and finish wi a fish supper. Or even better, Crail tae Anster passin Caiplie Coves and intae Cellardyke (pint at the Haven) then a mile onwards tae..... A fish supper

      Loads o walks!


      Delete
    3. (Don't forget yer fish supper)


      Salt an tammatty sauce by the way

      Delete
    4. TOMATO SAUCE! No thanks...that's OK for chips at home or whatever but I'd take my own wee bottle of chippie sauce if need be. Thanks for the suggestions though. Thought I might be going walking in Fife tomorrow but I'll be getting ready for a wee trip to stay with my sister in John O'Groats instead. Great wee walk to Duncansby Stacks in the offing...and lots of others. I'll definitely try one of your suggested walks once I'm back home. Jx

    5. (Shudder runs down spine......)

    1. Aw, Scotch, fancy you remembering that.


      Just checked tonight's playlist for an alleged trip around the world. Trailing away to Leith and down to Newcastle, Liverpool and London while carelessly avoiding Africa. How parochially typical of GIO. I'll be making mince next Friday. That should go with anything on their playlist.

    1. I'm too busy trying to acquire the taste for Conor Oberst's flaky voice in the hopes that it'll seem worth £25 come July. Either that or he gets struck down by a 24 hour virus leaving Dawes to fill the night.

      Norrie, were you havin' a laff or is a boy thing, like Neil Young and Bob Dylan?

      Delete
    2. You can leave after Dawes or have some fun by heckling Oberst and being ejected.
