Dog-Like Sparky's great. I wish i'd been there now. That's BigShipIron (0:30) innit...?

yep and me and my girl at 7 seconds bottom left corner.

I find it kind of amusing that he was handing ballons for us to blow up, after all the times i have complained about him !

There are at least a couple of benefit gigs on the near horizon. If I was anywhere near London/Brixton I'd be all over this one - Dogstand! Dogbone! Claire Lemmon! and the mystery headliners.

Could be very interesting? Do you think they will say who it is before the gig is?

And if she only had stopped making that hissing noise . . .

Good to see Poino stepping in with their support for the Brixton line up. Verily, a direct link between ('the Deerhoof of Peckham') Buttonhead and Cardiacs, if ever there was one!

Benefit on 30th June nearly sold out. Just 20 tickets left.

Redbus Noface will be excellent as always and The Trudy will be playing some tunes that will be on their new album. I've heard alot of them and they are super fantastic. :mrgreen:

Is John Barnstable the bass player for Redbus Noface ? I kinda sorta know him, through another person and have seen him play before in another band. That guy is wicked good on a bass guitar. Seems like a really nice guy too, with a very dry wit.

Jon Bastable Jnr - yup. He's the ex-bass player of The Trudy and now performs with Mark in Redbusnoface.

Genuinely lovely guy and very talented - he has his own band too -:)

Hello. I just discovered the Windmill gig in Timeout just now. As it happens I'll be attending the IBYM at the Alexandra Palace at the time. I don't suppose any of you would know anything about the timetable? Any ideas when I'll have to leave the festival to catch the main event at the windmill?
