Another Kickass Setlist

What can I say. If you can’t join em, wallow in the mysery of photographic evidence.

Gig Setlist, 2002

As I commented on the original Facebook link, “classic after classic after classics after…”.

Fear of Literacy

First, there was the Mailing List. It ended. It ended again. It was quickly resurrected. And continued running, even to this day – to get on it, I forget, email Owen or something…

Next, there was the Tour Diary, firstly on their official site, then mirrored here, like practically half the interwebs last decade.

Then, there was MySpace. What? No, I dunno either… Apparently it’s a socialmcsomething. Whoever.

Not content with one social space, the Facebook took over from ‘Space’s reign, bringing even more socially-awkward and commentable musings.

Having spent the last 15 minutes clicking through a near un-navigable hell-hole of a MySpace blog design, I can honestly asure you this really is the complete collection of all Davey’s MySpace and Facebook blogs to date, starting from just after the afformentioned Tour Diary, running through the entire MySpace blogs (starting 9th June 05 through 1st July 2011) and all Facebook post following through the current July 3rd 2012 one.

Frankly, it’s even better formatted than the previous blogs, with some entries I can’t find even on them. So, the heck to you, social media – Tumblr ftw!

Or just waste another week of my life reading it all again :) Only thing missing is those ever wonderful comments, but hey, what do you think this site if for, eh?

New Gig Media

Yes yes, lazy etc, bitches got houses and lives to sort these days you know… ok, maybe not the life bit. And hey, there’s always time for Crimea :)

There’s was time back in 2006 when AAA Photography snapped the guys at Oxegen fest, at Punchestown Races in Ireland, 07/07/2006.

There was time a couple months ago (time flys…) for someone other than myself to take some vid of the band playing at Union Chapel. The current entire vid collection is here, or just the new ‘un:

And a coule people – Rodger Button and Michelle Mendonça managed to catch Davey (and Tara) at the charity Fear of Sky gig last week – the latter even getting the below video of Lottery Winners (I know, again):

‘Sall for now, but lots (and lots, and lots) of background reading coming up…
