Found out about a possible Crocketts tribute band, called Thick Crocketts. Sounds just like Owen’s e-mail address. Maybe he set up a tribute just incase the band kicked him out.

Lots of crock goings on, including 3 emails from the band, and 2 messages left by owen on the message board.

In all the excitement of being active and announcing a gig and stuff, we actually messed the date up a bit. Rather than Dan and Davy’s gig in Belfast being on March th 7th, it’s on April 7. Sorry

Sorry, we cocked the date up. It’s in April (7th or 9th – whatever the number was on the original e-mail).

and as for splitting up, that’s bollocks.

If you want to hang on a week or two, we’ll have a fully fledged merchandise page on the website with everything we’ve ever recorded (plus t-shirts etc.) on sale.

IT’S THE BLOODY 7TH! Incase anyone’s thinking of going. Well, it is according to the BBC.

Sunday 7, Turn, Desert Hearts, Kidd Dynamo, Kernal Krok, Limelight, Belfast, 8.30pm, ?6
From this BBC site.
That’s the Davey and Dan acoustic gig, at the Limelight, in Belfast, on Sunday the 7th April.
Would anyone else like to fuck up the dates/venue?

In other news, it’s Dan’s birthday. Happy birthday mr man, hope you get lots of cake, and presents, and a new record deal.

Ok, according to Holly it’s the 9th. Whenever it is, sounds like you better get yourself over to Belfast. Davey and Dan are gonna be singing all new tracks, and they’re looking for a keyboard player. Apply here.
