Blog Software Recomendations?

If anyone knows of some decent blog software that can accomplish what’s currently being done here (just the main page (fully customised template and CSS) and archive (don’t really care, just needs custom CSS), the rest of the site is hand-coded html), but has decent comment/spam controls and is reguarly updated, then please leave a note on the message board. I’m thinking of ditching the current software, Greymatter, unless I can find a decent hack for comment spam control (such as a random character generator), and it looks like it’s way past it’s sell by date in terms of software updates. Plus, my hosts seem to hate it :o P

Happy Christmas :o )

Oh What The Fuck…

…it’s Christmas. Which means 2 things: 1. Ya’ll need presents. 2. Owen won’t get mad at this post for at least.. ooh.. a day?

Sorry, Christmas is over for another year. Come back later for more Crimea moviefilms :o )

Trust me, if this song doesn’t sound bloody great, it’s for purely technical reasons…

C&C Drums

For the guy from C&C drums from Canada or whever it was… Gimme a day to wake up and I’ll put a link here link below, for what it’s worth. All my photos are cunts. They prolly got white paint on them too…

Meanwhile, here’s something else… and like the dickhead I am I assumed as taking photos sideways works perfectly fine, videoing the stuff sideways would work too. Fuckit…

C&C MAN!!! rack it up… they’re shit. but whatever… Owen / drum pics. If you need bigger / better quality versions, god forbid, then email me. Maybe i’ll stick the rest of the gig pics up later… or maybe i’ll stick up more vids up instead ;o)

London Sprawling! Fancy A Slice?

Bethelehem! Madrid! Riga! Ashby De La Zouche! Can you hear us?

We’ve a few freak-fests coming up before we pile on the pounds at Chrimbo. There’s the Snow Patrol date, a show at swanky new venue Neighbourhood and our own XXXMas show at The Enterprise. Here’s the details, spread the word of the lords…

18 December – Neighbourhood, London
Free before 8pm, a fiver before ten and seven after that. We’re on-stage at 10.15pm. There’s even talk of some record spinning, but ask yourselves one question: are you ready for Saxon’s ‘Wheels Of Steel’ or Budgie’s ‘Breadfan’? Of course you are. More details about the club here:

19 December – Wembley Arena
With Snow Patrol. All hail Gazza Lighbazza. This show is sold out though. Sorry for getting your hopes up. We’ll probably be getting jacked up and hitting the stage at about 7pm. We were born to play arena rock.

20 December – Enterprise, Camden
As we don’t get invited to normal Christmas parties, we make up for not being able to photocopy our arses or make inappropriate passes at our boss, by having it large at Camden’s finest jar emporium. Tickets are ?5 on the door, in advance from the pub, or on the phone: 020 7485 2659. It’ll be the stuff of legend. Again.

Buy Now! Pay the morning after.

Lots of love
The Crimea.

Also from that page: “We Love You – Lats And Lats”

“We’re in Latvia. The album’s almost done. It’s bloody freezing. Still, there’s a table tennis table upstairs, a hardy Welshman (Greg Haver) mixing downstairs and a lot of hair-pulling as the final bits of recording get done by everyone else in the live room. Seven more days and it’s done. In the can. You’ll be blown away. And that’s a guarantee, chief.”

And one other thing from Myspace…

News that the Coopers Arms has reopened under new ownership:

Okay, make that two…

People who’ve been to gigs in Aber within the last few years might be familiar with Pagan Wanderer Lu, purveyor of fine back-bedroom indie with a nice line in lyrics. Everyone else should check him out too, as he finally has a label-released CD out — details and sample tracks here:

10 Minutes Of Crimea Love

Finally you can all get a piece of the Crimea’s best double figure visual performance. No, they’ve not given up the day job to become strippers; Adria Petty has uploaded her 10 minute long Tragedy Rocks EPK to YouTube. Check it out below…

They’re also still on tour with Snow Patrol. I would ask for pics on the SP website but if they’re anything like the Ash crowd they’ll chew me up and spit me out. Nah really I’m just trying make myself look like I bother anymore…
