THE CRIMEA

Live Blog #2

Testing 1 2…

Y’all there? Hopefully this works better than the last time i tried this live blog shinanigans. WordPress app sure seems easier to use anyway.

Currently on the way down to london town on ye olde eastcoast, postings curtosey gprs. Weather still looks gloomy in the midlands. Listing to old crimea live radio session recordings; forgot how grea Julz was ;) Now cant post shit cos the signals gone…. Lots of yellow flowers n pylons though. Pretty.

I think i see some sun. :) might not get soaked walking around london afterall. And thx joe for the SC headsup. We can all play guess-that-sandwich-filling again.

2.45pm
Wordpress needs a time stamp tag. Diy liveblog sucks :p. why did the greatness of little blue crunchy thing pass everyone by? Bonus points for guess-that-bagel-filling.

“heads i win…tails you loose”… Too many good crimea songs forgotten too. Speaking of which, forgotten just shuffled onto ipod. Humanity’s loss. This yellow oilseed-rudestuff seems popular. Fields still plastered in it. Gotta get me some – must be in wrong business selling games. Towns looking less characteristic by the mile. Hello generiland.

3pm
Parrado / rosevelt amazing too. Norweigian indie somethingorother. Will upload some tracks later cos i know noone ever got them off mp3.com / napster in the day. Oh and yeah, you are getting like 4 years of blog posts in a day here. Slap that blog back into shape.

3.15pm

Almost in kings x. Gotta go soon. Davy postin old song lyrics over @ his facebook. Back later with more. Remember, sandwich filling guesses in the comments. Winner gets one, if we ever meet…

3.20pm

3.26pm

Bang on time. Thats it for an hour folls. Off to trot round n get mugged n shanked. Like all the cool kids.

Big place. Big and cold. Super gig tip – bring a jumper.

5.20pm

Supposedly 500 people turning up to fill the place. Bagsy back row top floor. Always the best view :) better than back stage anyway…

5.45pm

6.00pm

Heating is go. Not so much need for coats anymore. Maybe a light summer jacket…

20120517-175724.jpg

Now for The Kicks to soundcheck. Crimea disappear who knows where, maybe to pray or something. Is it even legal to have a bar in a church? Meh. Maybe some sneaky pics from the stage in a bit. This would probably be pretty cool if anyone were on this blog to see them. Alas, even my mother has deserted the place. Ho hum. Kicks sounding decent. Apparently they won Xfm or something, so joe keeps telling everyone. What theyre gonna do with their own entire radio station, i dunno, silly prize if u ask me ;) whats wrong with a nice cake and sticky bun?

6.05pm

Owen drumming with the kicks. Have i missed something here, or is their regular awol?

Now that everyones fecked off but the cable tech and tea lady, it’s time for the ever popular guess-that-sandwich-filling game. Again, bonus points for the bagel type.
