Well I live here :lol: And in a very small village, not near where you were. But I've been up there a few times I think.

Cool. Whare abouts in the lakes do you live? And how do you get to gigs?

Dunni if anyone remembers my post about me DJing to one man and his dog a couple of weeks back, but tonight was our second attempt at pulling it off, and it went quite well, managing to draw a decent crowd, even though all the punk kids left during my set and came back shortly after...

Anyway, it came in 2 parts, one early, and one late:

At The Gates - Slaughter of The Soul
Naglfar - Unleash Hell
Children Of Bodom - Needled 24/7
Epica - The Last Crusade
Nightwish - End Of All Hope
Crimson Tears - My Plea
--------------------------------
Iron Maiden - Run To The Hills
Edguy - Lavatory Love Machine
WASP - Animal (Fuck Like A Beast) [request]
Metallica - Enter Sandman
Dio - Holy Diver
Sinergy - I Spit On Your Grave
Judas Priest - Breaking The Law

I actually wanted to play Season's End instead of Crimson Tears (played them last time), but the decks wouldn't read my mix CD I made.

Cool set. Glad it went better than last time. If you think about it it's better that the punk kids left rather than starting a fight or giveing you abuse. Well done anyway. :yes:

Cheers :yes: It's looking like a semi-regular thing too, which should be good.

It's a bit scary though - a very drunken girl kept cheering and yelling she loved me at half the songs I played. It turned out she was my housemates scary ex-girlfriend who stole his wheels when she broke up with him :o

Well, we don't actually know it was her, but it's a little suspicious to find your car propped up on bricks a couple of days after breaking up with someone...

Congrats to Hull on it's victory on Channel 4 last night. Didn't actually see the programme but was accused of being from about 4 of the top 10 this morning at work. As it happens I don't live far from no.4 now.

BAND GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO KEEPING YOUR MAN

(by those who know)
==================================

-Don't try to be the "manager", do not get involved with band business, that is for the band.

-Don't ask his bandmates for relationship advice.

-Do Not complain when your (insert holiday here) date gets cancelled because a show has been scheduled. Holidays are no longer yours. Even Valentines Day!

***-It's NOT mandatory that you are at every show.***

-Do not get jealous when your boyfriend talks to groupies. They are the one's buying the CDs and merch, not you, so let them have their time. And remember...you get to go home with him!

-Babies don't make men quit bands....especially if you were a groupie.

-No, the band does not want you to go on tour with them. Like your going to sleep in the back of a van and eat ramen for 4 months strait!?

-Don't make the following introduction: Hi! I'm _____. My boyfriend is in ______.

-Don't follow him around at shows like a lost puppy, he is taking care of business, find your own crowd.

-Don't go to band practice. And it's normal to have practice more than once a week.

-Do not assume everyone loves your boyfriend's band.

-Don't make out with other band members girlfriends at the bar. Save that for the after party.

-Don't turn yourself into a walking flyer for your boyfriend's band. The shirt is fine, but must you break out the hat, the hoodie, AND the stickers on your ass?

-Do not stand in front of your boyfriend while he is onstage and stare at him like he is the greatest singer in the world.

-No rumpshaka dances during the show, that is unless your man is in 2 Live Crew.

-Do not change your style based on the type of band you date. Going from preppy to Nu to hardcore shows you are not your own individual.

-If he calls while out on the road, don't complain about when he is coming home. You're lucky he is using the quarter to call you, instead of buying gas or food.

-Never say anything negative about your man's band that you cannot say to him. It will only come back to bite you in the ass.

-If you’re a stripper, keep work on the pole, not at shows. Not everyone wants to know you shop at FREDRICKS !

-Never cause a fight right before your man goes on stage. Relationship problems can be dealt with after the show.

-If they have a show out of town, don't drive just so you and your boy can have "alone time". Because you want to "talk".

-Don't buy your man a new instrument so he and his band mates can match

-You cannot drink on the band's tab! Buy your own The Tour Manager works for the band, not the girlfriends. Get your own ass into catering, etc


-Keep the band separate from your everyday life. That's your boyfriend's passion, find your own



:D

We bought a second hand drum kit this afternoon. Only cost £35 and sounds great once you put t-shirts over all the drums.

So far I've learnt the intro to Run To The Hillos, and realised that the Where Eagles Dare intro [i]really[/] is impossible to play.

Any got any hints on good songs to learn, bearing in mind I need tabs and only have 1 bass drum, a snare, 2 rack toms, and a floor tom.
