We've been busy bears over the past four or five weeks. I managed to condense it into the phrase "Kasbahs, a Robbery and a Zulu" (around a hardcore Solitaire marathon and the prospect of a new toothbrush) which beyond being a potentially mint EP title actually does sum it up quite well.
The toothbrush thing I mentioned basically means I've sent someone out to get me a new toothbrush, because I've somehow managed to lose mine today and in the interests of dental hygiene and maintaining friendships, I feel it's best to replace it.
Kasbahs refers to our most recent gig at the very shiny "Moseley Arms" in Digbeth, with headline and all-round excellent gentlemen "Black Market Empire". A DJ from Walsall's "Wharf Bar" DJ's at the gigs and turned up with a box of vinyl gold, including The Clash playing Live in Jamaica. During 'Rock the Kasbah' a firework goes off, and is somehow panned across the speakers and sounds mint. It was a highlight.
Also, 31st January, The Stacks are playing The Kasbah again, It's never been a bad gig so get down!
At a battle of the bands at the Northampton Avenue campus, we met an awesome band called "Archives". Great lads with a great set and an awesome guitarist, and we'll be gigging with them again on the 26th November at the same venue! So Students, get yourselves down. Pints of Fosters for £1.80, bargain!!
The Robbery part of the title refers to my guitar being stolen with all my gear in it, which we recently got back so all is well. the cost of it aside, it has sentimental value, and i'm broke. The orange strat lives on!!
And Zulu simply refers to this. Another incredible chapter in "Dudley's greatest hits".
