  1. Seems to be a little bother on this gig, didn't want to bring the topic back up but I felt it necessary to say something. For anyone (yeah, all three of you) who expected to see me play this gig, massive apologies for not making it. About two weeks before the show, my brother passed away in very sudden circumstances, meaning that I had to be around for my family. I couldn't get in touch with Ross (seems to be a common theme here) so I had no way of really letting anyone know I wouldn't be there, and just hoped that people who knew me might've been able to pass on the message. It's very rare that I have to cancel shows and sadly this has been because of the worst reason ever. But I'll be back in Aberdeen soon, promise. And hopefully by then I'll be a bit less sad. xxx
  2. People should go to this, it's going to be mega. Luke and Sam have been touring for ages and they're bloody ruddy good live. If you like Ben Folds you'll love Luke, and if you're into sorta Ryan Adams/Jay Jay Pistolet sorta thing, you'll love Sam. Check them out! www.myspace.com/simplylukeleighfield www.myspace.com/samisaac
  3. I think anyone questioning Jonah's sincerity has to question themselves, would they be as sincere having spent 30 hours travelling to one of Scotland's "minor" cities to play what I considered to be one of the best sets I've seen him do? You've got to be pretty fucking cynical to say things like that. I think Jonah is one of a very rare breed.
  4. I have to say I had an amazing time last night, it totally made up for the shambles in Edinburgh the night before. Thanks for listening and being an awesome audience, that's what I like! Quiet during the songs, then shouting shit at me while I'm tuning up in between. Perfect. If any of you didn't catch it, it's www.myspace.com/mistakesinanimation I have a recording of Jonah's set (which sounds fucking amazing), I might post a few highlights up here but I think it'll be at the discretion of the big man himself... He's staying at mine from Saturday onwards so I'm sure we'll sort something out. Once again, cheers for making it such a great night! I might be back in May, depends on whether I'm touring with Luke Leighfield and Sam Isaac at the time. Also, thanks to Phil for letting us crash at short notice, legend. xx
  5. This gig is going to be sick. I'm getting on the megabus in about half an hour... see you guys later.
  6. Literally, Uncle Fritz, good fucking call. I'm looking forward to this gig. xx

    That's not really the point though. Fairly sure Jonah would draw a decent crowd whatever the venue... still think Drummonds is th ebest venue in this case. *shrug*

    Jonah Matranga

    Just thought I'd come and see what the crack with Jonah in this thread is. I've pretty much got him confirmed for a gig in central London so we will see how that affects the Aberdeen date (I'm supposedly getting him on the 25th?! How is he going to travel?! The mentalist). In my experience of Aberdeen venues, I'd say Drummond would be best for the gig. Jonah knows how to deal with crowds and the vast majority of people who would go and see him aren't of the "i'm a prick that talks during gigs" disposition. Even with his stupidly high guarantee (which has got HIGHER since I put him on in November! sacre bleu!), I managed to put him on at a 90 capacity venue in my hometown just outside of London, and made a profit. The gig was ace. He's worth booking but make sure you get the right venue. Lastly, if you do book him, can I support? Safe-ting.
  9. Late-start acoustic gig at Cafe Drummond once the punk gig that night has finished. Should be a good'un. Please come down if you can!
  10. You big gay. We weren't that great anyway, I nearly broke my guitar. Again. del
  11. Well, it depends what our van situation is. Me and The Fez are sharing transport, there might not be enough room for an extra guitar among all their equipment (full backline including the added extras of a keyboard and decks...). But then again... there might be. I'll let you know. It's all quite stressful at the moment. del
  12. Ha yes. I'll be playing Drummond again. Can't wait. Please come down. Also, it'll just be me, no viola player, he's on.... jury duty. If you knew him, that's quite a sobering thought - 'crazy Dave' in charge of justice... :S But yeah, come down. PlZ. del
  13. Just to say, I'll also be sending up a few copies of my demo to One Up in Aberdeen so you can pick up a copy there in a week or so's time. I can't remember what I drank, but it was at least 4 pints of Tennents and 6 Tia Maria & Oranges... Oh, and a shot of Jaegermeister. How I woke up without a hangover is beyond me. del
  14. Haha yeah I believe I do. There's gonna quite a crowd... awesome. del
  15. I keep getting texts from people in Aberdeen saying they've seen posters for this gig everywhere, and from what I gather, it sounds like it's gonna be fuckin' rammed. Good work Katy! Only a couple of days to go now. del
  16. Katy, I put my 'knowing everyone' down to using far too many messageboards, and travelling fucking everywhere to go and see gigs. Gigs I get stupidly drunk at, thus leading to talking to too many random people, then totally forgetting the conversation/people as a direct result of alcohol consumption. eg, Ben's brother But yeah Ben, no worries, some people say "the 'i know biffy clyro' del" and mean it in a more sarcastic manner as though I go round telling everyone we're best mates (I don't, and we're not. But I do occasionally source 'herbs' for them when they're in London). Really looking forward to the gig, the whole week's gonna be pretty fucking special. And Katy, I hope you have my rider of 20 grams of crack cocaine ready for me. del
  17. Um, if you want to put it like that, then I guess. Do I know you? And are you going to be at the gig Mike? del
  18. Fuck, my retorts usually come along the lines of "your mum". I'm sure I'll be ok, my music will silence you. Or something. del
  19. Hey everyone, I'm del aka ..mistakes.in.animation.. If any of you lot are coming down to the gig, please check out my set, it would be rather ace. I don't wanna come all that way and just find myself playing to a bunch of apathetic Aberdonians you can hear my boogie-woogie online at www.myspace.com/mistakesinanimation. hope it's to your taste. take it easy amigos. del
  20. Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but it's amazing what you find on google, when searching for "Biffy" and "Inverness". Anyway, I digress. Mike, I don't quite know what sort of problem you have with me, but I don't have anything against you at all. Both times I met you, you were quite cool, but from what I've seen written online by you about me since I left SB has been a bit out of order. That's exactly it... Me summed up in one sentence. Spoke too soon there mate... Actually' date=' I picked up their split with Sevenyears in Banquet Records, when Jon Tolley from BR told me I'd love it. And I did. Then I saw them live supporting Jetplane Landing in... April I think it was? Good show, I was impressed. That August tour... I wrote a feature on it for my webzine, dunno if you've read it. If you've not, it's here: [url']http://www.thisisfakediy.co.uk/view.php?id=1335 Anyway, take care. del
