Hey everybody! The sun is actually out...!
Avatar 3:14am Bill Mac:

Andrew! and Martyn, wherever you are! and Brian, Jay, Looms, dubbuhyuh, KP, Stanley (and Mrs). Surely this doesn't cover everybody but a huuuuge hello and Happy Saturday morning to you all. No sun, lotsa rain -n- muck this early morn. Wake up, earthwerms!
Avatar 3:20am Jay/London:

hey I am Here Bill just woke up .. got coffee at my side ears at full
Avatar 3:20am Mike from MPLS:

Friends by Tubeway Army?
  3:21am Fran:

Hey Bill
No sun here either but its Rochdale!!! Great show last week - early Gal Costa a treat - Gal the 1969 is a gem! Saw Mott the Hoople in Manchester in November - not too shabby at all. Last week gigs by the Magic Band and Lonnie Holley and next week The Pyramids - who needs sunshine huh!
Avatar 3:21am Bill Mac:

Yo Jay! Hi Mike, Friends eh? Let me have a looksee...
Avatar 3:23am Mike from MPLS:

I need to look into it...that Visitors track sounded just like it.
  3:25am Martyn:

Good morning to you Bill (and all). Here as usual but computer not happy this morning.
Avatar 3:26am Andy in Berlin:

So I had to run out to get some milk only to return and find out I had no coffee!
Avatar 3:28am Jay/London:

we are electric Friends !
Avatar 3:30am Mike from MPLS:

I was talking about Friends on the 1978 self-titled album
Avatar 3:30am Bill Mac:

Hey Fran, greetings! I wanted to check the dates on Mott the Hoople - wish they'd do something here. I guess Buff didn't even show up for the shows this time around. Sounds like you had a pretty satisfying November, show wise. Now if Brock can get Hawkwind back over here I won't be bitter.
Hey martyn, knew you wuz still about!
Avatar 3:31am Mike from MPLS:

That and Replicas are both fantastic albums
  3:36am Fran:

No Buffin sadly but the shows are so good I'm sure they will come to visit you soon! The Brockmeister - maybe do the Waynes World 2 thing - if you put the show on they will come!! Bitter ye not as the not so late great Frankie Howerd would say!! Gary Numan followed by Brigitte F - respect is due Sir!
Avatar 3:39am Jay/London:

where's Brian? ... walking the dog I guess
Avatar 3:42am Mike from MPLS:

I thought it sounded similar enough that one of them has to be a cover of the other...I couldn't' find much about Visitors. Any idea when that track was originally recorded?
Avatar 3:43am Mike from MPLS:

I'll have to listen again when the archive becomes available.
  3:43am Fran:

Robyn Hitchcock does a good Are Friends Electric but you won't get it mixed up with the original!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am Brian in UK:

Hello Bill & folks. That's right Jay walking Spencer.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47am Brian in UK:

Did you say Martin Chambers. Blimey.
Avatar 3:47am Jay/London:

too early for Comedy Brian maybe in a hour would be good
Avatar 3:48am Jay/London:

if you have another dog Brian you will have to call it marks !
Avatar 3:48am Bill Mac:

@Brian - Yep, I think Chambers is from the same area as most of the rest of MTH
  3:48am Fran:

Yep Martin Chambers - he'll do anything for Brass in Pocket. Comedy over!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48am Brian in UK:

Jay. Agree. Just a hint for later. Can you get snippets of Spinal Tap.
Avatar 3:49am Bill Mac:

@Fran I'll need to check the Hitchcock version of Friends out.
Avatar 3:50am Jay/London:

that was on tv the other night Brian
Avatar 3:50am Jay/London:

how about a bit of steve martin ?
Avatar 3:51am Bill Mac:

Thanks for the ideas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am Brian in UK:

He'll do anything for $50.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am Brian in UK:

I need one of Jelly Jim's bacon butties.
  3:55am Fran:

Anyway Bill its nearly Christmas so are there any humbug humdingers coming soon? I can now officially start playing my fave Christmas song - The Three Stooges - I want a hippopotamus for Christmas......
  3:56am Fran:

Brian - just stop your sobbing about this.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56am Brian in UK:

Fran do you know The Four Kings 'I Got a Present for Jesus'

Last man standing more like.
Avatar 3:58am Jay/London:

why scream three times bill ?

Leipzig. Hilversum. I loves Colin Bass.
Avatar 4:02am Bill Mac:

@Jay According to something I read on snopes.com:
a Very Special Dish that can be ordered in certain Very Special Chinese restaurants, but only by certain Very Special (and trusted) customers. The dish (served only in privacy) involves litters of live newborn baby rats, hairless and blind, brought to the table along with a vat of boiling flavored peanut oil, and some tongs.

MMMMM - hairless.....
Avatar 4:02am Jay/London:

ahh great waking up happy music :)
  4:02am Fran:

Brian - don't know that one?
Avatar 4:02am Bill Mac:

@ Brian - I miss 3M3...
Avatar 4:06am Jay/London:

omg Bill and people pay for it, sounds crass ... if its true I would scream more the three times, if they brought that to me.
Avatar 4:10am Jay/London:

gee thanks bill ! now its put me off my breakfast ... well still need to eat
  4:11am andy in berlin:

breakfast ruined - mission accomplished. thank god I wasn't eating baby sausage!
Avatar 4:11am Bill Mac:

Just cut down on the mice...
Avatar 4:11am Kurt Gottschalk:

  4:12am Fran:

That put the rat in ratatouille
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14am Brian in UK:

Hairless and bible black. That's Dylan Thomas for you.
Avatar 4:14am Jay/London:

don't need to cut down on the mice they are small enough to eat in one bite
Avatar 4:17am Bill Mac:

Hey Kurt's here! So there's another chapter in the book about how 11th century Arab men over 70 years old would volunteer to give their bodies to subsist only only honey til died. They'd then be placed into a honey filled coffin for 100 years where they would decay into a medicinal confection. Look up mellified man when you get a moment...
  4:18am Fran:

Is there a line here about coming to a sticky end????
Avatar 4:20am Bill Mac:

My job is to set up the joke...
  4:21am Fran:

Yup..............job done...........I'll get my coat.....
Avatar 4:22am Bill Mac:

Thank you and good night....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23am Brian in UK:

Is that where the term mellifluous comes from. Sweet sounding.
Avatar 4:23am Bill Mac:

I think 'mel' is Arabic for honey
Avatar 4:25am Jay/London:

here one way with mice... Alice Thomas Ellis, in Fish, Flesh and Good Red Herring, reports on a woman who cooks mice to her own, distinctly non-Zambian, standards:

In 1920 when I was four years old an old woman who lived near my family in Radlett and whom I used to visit on every occasion I could find, would give me sugar mice to eat. These were made by skinning mice, which she had caught in an ordinary mousetrap, emptying them and then tying them by the tail to a wooden spoon where they were suspended into a strong sugar syrup in a cast iron saucepan over a slow heat. After some hours (or days) the mice became crystallised and, when they were cold, she would give me one to eat. They were delicious and even the bones were crisp and edible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am Brian in UK:

Busy time Bill. Four gigs in four weeks. Loving it.

Jay you must use a cast iron saucepan.
Avatar 4:27am Bill Mac:

Some times you just gotta skip the junk food and get some home cookin'....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29am Brian in UK:

Radlett is a rather la-de-da place or thinks it is.
Avatar 4:29am Bill Mac:

@Brian You never know, deep fried nice could rival Jelly Jim's bacon butties.
Avatar 4:30am Bill Mac:

@Brian Who did you see? I know you were up for Lonnie Holley too.
Avatar 4:30am Bill Mac:

@Fran - You saw Magic Band too?????
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30am Brian in UK:

My favourite is a toasted smoked bacon sandwich. Hmmmmm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32am Brian in UK:

Jason Isbell
Ballake Sissoko Quartet + singer
Lonnie Holley
to come Richard Buckner.

All for the price of ten minutes in a Madonna show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32am Stanley:

Hello everyone.
Been hesitating to join in the banter as its made me feel rather queasy
Avatar 4:32am Bill Mac:

Now you're talking - a big dead hairless animal!
  4:33am Emile:

Hey Bill and Bill's peeps. Saw Sabbath last week, it was worth every extorted cent!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am Brian in UK:

Killin' it, Bill.
  4:34am Fran:

Yep the Magic Band at Leeds Irish Centre - they played for over 2 hours and it was a stormer! Lonnie Holley in a small converted mill space in Salford - a genius at work. Pyramids next - and lets put this in comedy perspective - all for the price of a faint chuckle or 15 minutes at the Python reunion shows!! Brian's diary sounds good too!!
Avatar 4:34am Jay/London:

@ stanley well they eat haggis up there I could never eat that
Avatar 4:35am Bill Mac:

Sorry, Stanley. It started off as a book club thing... honest....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36am Brian in UK:

Fran I guess I saw Lonnie the day after you. He was special.
Thumbs up for Mother Earth.
  4:36am Emile:

This Blind Shake shreds
Avatar 4:36am Bill Mac:

@Emile - Hey man, you gotta see the masters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Stanley:

The Monty Python reunion - And Now For Something Completely The Same!
  4:37am Fran:

Indeed Brian - quite hypnotic really
  4:38am Fran:

Always reminds me of the classic question to Cleese - i.e. could he remember the last time he was actually funny!!! Well the prices at the O2 Arena had me in stitches!!!
Avatar 4:39am Bill Mac:

@Fran - You're killing me, but I so happy that guys 60+ years old kick it hard and long. Right you are Stanley, I love the Pythons but I would only catch them on TV at this point.
Avatar 4:40am Bill Mac:

@Fran badapuh! (Futile attempt at rimshot sound)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am Brian in UK:

Tommy Cooper played it right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42am Brian in UK:

Sorry Bill, English comedian he could raise a laugh by just looking at you. Messed up magic tricks. Died on stage. Really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am Brian in UK:

How do you titilate an ocelot?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43am Brian in UK:

You oscillate its tit a lot.
Avatar 4:43am Jay/London:

@Stanley yes I do not see any point in the reunion .. if they are not doing anything new
  4:44am Fran:

Sorry Bill - perhaps if I lied about my gigs would that help? So this week I'm going to a Kenny G tribute evening followed by a lecture deconstructing the songs of Bon Jovi in a geo-political context?? Sorry Bill - you'll have to live on that prayer. Cue a Carl Palmer sized far too fast drum roll....and Tommy Cooper - I walked into a bar and said ouch...it was an iron bar.......genius!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Brian in UK:

No it was on national TV. Please confirm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46am Stanley:

@Jay - Its a cynical attempt to make money. Balls to them.
(Tho' I still hold the Life of Brian as one of the funniest films ever made)
  4:46am Fran:

That's right Brian - wasn't it a Royal Variety Show or similar?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46am Brian in UK:

Horse walks into a bar.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50am Brian in UK:

Got me laughing, Jay. Need a good belly laugh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Brian in UK:

Bill, Stanley knows already but I got meself a rotavator.
For those in the know it is a Howard 350 with Kohler K141 engine. Knew you would be impressed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53am Stanley:

"I'm on a whisky diet. I've lost three days already" - another TC classic
Avatar 4:56am Bill Mac:

@Stanley - The Pythons can do no wrong to me. If people want to pay to see em, let em pay. Life of Brian - I can't think of many movies that even come close to that in terms of funny.
Avatar 4:57am Bill Mac:

Just reading Frans Sarcastic Post. I like how you use Carl Palmer and Kenny G in the same sentence. If I was eating soup I'd be blowing noodles out of my nose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59am Brian in UK:

Bill ofcourse that film owes everything to the title.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:00am Brian in UK:

Glad you are hooking up with some dubness.
Avatar 5:00am Jay/London:

ahh sly Bill you remembered from last week
Avatar 5:01am Bill Mac:

Oh but of course. You know I almost forgot MP and the Holy Grail, another classic!
Avatar 5:01am Bill Mac:

@Jay, the memory is a fickle thing....
  5:04am Fran:

So long as it's not small mice coming out of your nostrils that's good with me Bill!!! I now have to see a man about a lawnmower - no really - this isn't a lead into a classic 1970's television joke although I will sign off with the immortal Colin Crompton from the classic Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club - Gents, the sign in the toilet saying wet paint.....that's not an instruction!! Well done for playing some solid sounds through all this ancient mirth Bill. See y'all soon

Fran has it got a seat?

Avatar 5:14am Jelly Jim:

Hi Bill and everyone, Here at last, just back from the land of nod. Sorry Brian I have allready eaten all the bacon butties, on to the sugar mice or as I heard a kid in a sweet shop call them once "Rat Candles" groovin to the sounds, sorry I missed M3 though !
Avatar 5:18am Bill Mac:

Hiya Jim, I was lookin forward to some bacon.... sigh....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19am Stanley:

@Brian - the toilet or the lawnmower?
Talking of which, I've always had a secret wish to emulate the fella in David Lynch's 'The Straight Story'.
Avatar 5:22am Jelly Jim:

Rat candle anyone ?
Avatar 5:24am Bill Mac:

I've already had three...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24am Brian in UK:
