17 Aug 17, 00:06
Che: I therefore have to go to bed too or stand up
17 Aug 17, 00:06
Beerman: Awww gnight Boo Booo xx :R
17 Aug 17, 00:05
Che: Aliboo has been nodding off for the passed age and has decided it is bed time lol
17 Aug 17, 00:05
Beerman: It still looks liem someones front room lol
17 Aug 17, 00:05
Che: Well we changed our minds about the place by being honest , let's hope others do too
17 Aug 17, 00:03
Beerman: But if that's what it costs to keep the lights on, anything else is gravy to him and Phil will come back and the lights are kept on for another day
17 Aug 17, 00:02
Beerman: Lmaooo that is true
17 Aug 17, 00:02
Che: I can take £300 over any bar in the world in half an hour, even on a Monday morning hahaha
17 Aug 17, 00:01
Che: £300 haha
17 Aug 17, 00:01
Che: But funny at the same time
17 Aug 17, 00:00
Beerman: Venues need to work with promoters and bands give incentives
17 Aug 17, 00:00
Che: I think it is beautiful
17 Aug 17, 00:00
Beerman: That is how it should be though
17 Aug 17, 00:00
Che: They charged phil walker a deposit fee for venue hire and his deposit was returned when they hit £300 bar takings pmsl
16 Aug 17, 23:58
Beerman: Lol I had a promoter at Cogs add me the other day, 20 seconds later an invite to "like my promotions page" added to my special group and deleted
16 Aug 17, 23:57
Beerman: Like I said earlier 30 years ago I could and would go to a gig most nights, that is not possible now, and when people do go out (they younger ones anyways) they will favour the club nights with cheap drink deals and a DJ
16 Aug 17, 23:57
Che: I am not impressed when a small band tell me they played the o2
16 Aug 17, 23:56
Che: But I am never going to book a club venue
16 Aug 17, 23:55
Che: So I make no promises
16 Aug 17, 23:55
Beerman: Yep there are less venues and more bands, venues do not take the chance, but on the same note people do not go out like they used to and favour club nights
16 Aug 17, 23:55
Che: That and "getting a reply from someone you respond to , who has shown an interest"
16 Aug 17, 23:55
Che: "Getting a gig" is the answer I get whenever I ask bands what their toughest problem is
16 Aug 17, 23:53
Che: If he ain't heard of scruffys, then he is doing something wrong
16 Aug 17, 23:53
Beerman: Lol don;t blame ya, in personal experience (been putting gigs on nearly a decade) if bands are not eager right away they can be a real pain
16 Aug 17, 23:52
Che: Don't dismiss me just cos you ain't seen me before hahaha
16 Aug 17, 23:52
Che: I shall not be in touch hahah
16 Aug 17, 23:52
Che: Oh get in touch I think we could sort something out hahahaha
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: I said
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: Brum
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: He asked where is it?
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Beerman: There are ego's out there
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: I think he misunderstood haha
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: I had no answer
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: Hahahaha
16 Aug 17, 23:51
Che: He say he said, I quote "no I don't think so, this is our bread and butter band and we only want to be playing the club scene"
16 Aug 17, 23:50
Beerman: Incredulous I aint coming in for freebeeries
16 Aug 17, 23:49
Beerman: I aint been to Scruffies in ages lol, I think Flynn is worried I have fell out with em lol

16 Aug 17, 23:48
Che: Hahaha I asked the singer in passing if he fancied doing a gig at scruffys
16 Aug 17, 23:47
Che: That shit one lol
16 Aug 17, 23:47
Che: After the first band
16 Aug 17, 23:47
Beerman: Oh I agree, many of these little places just die and it is criminal
16 Aug 17, 23:47
Che: The sound in there wasn't terrible either
16 Aug 17, 23:46
Che: But the place is struggling along and needs support
16 Aug 17, 23:46
Che: They only had two bottles in stock hahah
16 Aug 17, 23:46
Beerman: No befiore they ran out their bottles
16 Aug 17, 23:45
Beerman: lol
16 Aug 17, 23:45
Che: £1 corkage in the lab hahaha
16 Aug 17, 23:45
Che: Hahaha I have suddenly realised a way of making those £15 party barrels cheaper than in bottles
16 Aug 17, 23:45
Beerman: Befor thet ran out
16 Aug 17, 23:45
Beerman: How much was the ale in there\/
16 Aug 17, 23:44
Che: I suggested £1 corkage and they accepted, I will go back there and hope they have more ale next time
16 Aug 17, 23:42
Che: So we were drinking for £2 a bottle and everyone was happy
16 Aug 17, 23:42
Che: We had bought loads from Morrisons for a quid a bottle
16 Aug 17, 23:42
Beerman: That is damn cool respect for that
16 Aug 17, 23:42
Che: They had no ale
16 Aug 17, 23:41
Che: The manager allowed us to drink our own hob gob and pay a quid for every bottle we drank. I thought that was cool
16 Aug 17, 23:41
Che: It is really like a set from trainspotting
16 Aug 17, 23:40
Beerman: I am not sure I am ready for that regression
16 Aug 17, 23:40
Beerman: Ha haaaaa
16 Aug 17, 23:40
Beerman: Well the software didn;t tlike that Iron Monkey track
16 Aug 17, 23:40
Che: We joined their private member club hahaha
16 Aug 17, 23:39
Che: You need to visit the lab in Northampton Jim hahah it grows on you
16 Aug 17, 23:39
Beerman: Somethings froze
16 Aug 17, 23:39
Beerman: It's all a bit shitty these days but then kids today can't affoed to be out every night of the week like I used to
16 Aug 17, 23:39
Aliboo: Scene, not place
16 Aug 17, 23:38
Aliboo: Northampton has always had an excellent & well supported place, though x
16 Aug 17, 23:37
Beerman: I think there were gigs just about every day of the week
16 Aug 17, 23:37
Beerman: we had loads of punk pubs plus loads in the mid range too, honestly we were spoiled for choice
16 Aug 17, 23:36
Aliboo: Very few pubs did live music. Well, of any quality!
16 Aug 17, 23:34
Beerman: We had loads in Brum was great
16 Aug 17, 23:34
Aliboo: I did that too. I've been going to the craufurd since I was 14. And we had another great place called the pitz
16 Aug 17, 23:33
Beerman: Ahh ya see, I was happy in the little dive venues a quid in ha ha
