I got me a beer and sat down in the back garden to RELAX, which I DID. I did me a soundcheck, had some TEA, chatted to Andy Who Does The Graphic Design, and soon we were joined by Charlie Of The Fighting Cocks. There was a good while of LITERARY DISCUSSON, also more BEER - they had bottles of ORGANIC beer which had ACTUAL Bits Floating In It, it was ACE - before it was time for me to go on and do THIS:
The Peterborough All-Saints' Wide Game Team (Group B)
Hey Hey 16K
Never Going Back To Aldi's
The Gay Train
Do The Indie Kid
The Lesson Of The Smiths
Boom Shake The Room
It was a festival, The Pop Art Weekender, and HENCE I did my Festival Set, and it seemed to go down quite well. It got off to a RATHER slow start but I think people came round quite quickly and there was a good lot of joining in and SHOUTING by the end. It was GOOD!
Afterwards there was more BEER, also INDIE BINGO. This was a GRATE idea as the compere, Rob (who i think I'd upset earlier by pointing out that, despite his claims, he wasn't from Leicester AT ALL "because people who really ARE from Leicester, they don't like to show off about it") put on a CD with 40ish SNIPPETS of Indie Tracks which a SPECIAL GUEST (ME) then put on random. We all had BINGO cards with random of the tracks on, so from then on it was like BINGO. There'd be some discussion amongst US (and also,it turned out, the organisers) as to whether it would be better NOT to tell people the names of the songs played, as this would make it double as a QUIZ but then this would DENY the chance to do Inevitable Bingo Gags i.e. "Two Fat Ladies - The Magic Numbers".
It was all rather excellent, even the PRIZES had comedy value (mostly due to BEER and the fact that one prize was "A New Morning" by Suede about which, apparently, EVERYONE says "Ooh, I haven't got that" because NOBODY has). When it was over i watched the EVER Marvellous Ten Foot Nun before heading home, comfortably filled with BEER, GRUB, and GOOD TIMES!
