busy time for C&K

September is shaping up to be busy for Steven Clark and myself. We're performing the Clark and King show (in part or in full) at the charity concert mentioned elsewhere here on the 5th; we'll be at the Linlithgow Festival on the 12th for some workshop fun and a concert; and we're playing at Uisge Beatha in Woodlands Road (Glasgow) on the 18th.

more info...

12/9/09 http://www.linlithgowfolk.com/index.htm

I'll post details about the 18th later.

If we carry on like this we might end up really knowing what we're doing.[/url]

I think there is a definite likeness.  Even the guitars look like the ones each player actually plays... geek

You don't think the instrument the guy on the right is holding is a wee bit wee  for a guitar?

Rid Sonja

Of course it could be a Mandy, (which C also plays) but it could be a tiny guitar coz his guitar is wee.  It is a cartoon after all...
Catskinner

Like a kind of Les Paul "stumpy"?

Just so long as you're not suggesting his guitar playing is wee.

It's a fuckin' mandolin.

Do you mean like Linseedy Paul?
Catskinner

We know it's probably a mandolin, coz Steve plays one.
But although it's unlikley, the object in the engraving couldin fact be a half size LP type electric guitar or a pignose mini, depending on how crap the artist was.

I think worrying about whether it's a cartoon mandy or a cartoon guitar when Steve plays both instruments is a stupid irrelevance myself.

Nine days to go.

Just thought I'd mention it lest you'd all forgotten.

That's this Friday, 18th September.

And I'd like to add that for the fashion conscious we will be offering this season's must have....

The Tougher Than Suet T Shirt (limited edition).

Yes I know, it's amazing isn't it.

On first glance I read that as "wet T shirt competition".

This gommy eye's getting worse I tell you.
Jim King

I'll gladly put the word out to see if there's any interest for such a contest.

Though I doubt the management would approve, they're not pleased if the floor gets wet.
Onny

It might be an event best kept for Morrisons. We could invite the neighbours.
Jim King

You surprise me. I didn't think that Archbishop Conti would be interested in such things.
Onny

I was thinking more of

although it occurs to me that Maxwell Plums (was the other side of Maxwell Street from Morrisons 20 odd years ago) was a wet T shirt venue.
Catskinner

You're out of touch with the seedy side of Glasgow Onny.

Legs & Co is gone.

The Maxwell Street striporama is now in the building previously occupied by Fury Murry's and now trades under the name of "Forbidden".

I've only ever seen the bouncers turning drunks away from the door. I don't recall seeing anybody actually going into the place.

They must get a turn though. They have one of those wee L shaped fences out on the pavement at their door for herding the queue.

I knew the venue had moved but I'd assumed it was the same folk and I'd guessed it was under the same name. I'd thought (or rather hoped) Glasgow City Council had set its face against 'new' clubs.

I've only ever passed on Weds evening and I don't suppose that's their busiest time. I pass the one next to Baby Grand at Charing Cross quite often and it has folks coming and going all the time Smilie_PDT
