    I am sure the Gaels could do a set based on those guys for you if you ask them

    Any chance this big gig could happen in June while I am home

    I am willing to volunteer my artwork services for free if you need it just hit me up with a message.

    this forum sucks, i now officially retire from this so called "musicians forum"

    bunch of stuck up fools, with rubbish ideals and rubbish morals.

    stuck in the seventies and eighties with disillusioned newcomers.

    thats barring (killarifts, docrock, and possibly clash 67, he fights for a good cause.)

    but the rest of you are bossy stuck up people. god, i dont think i have ever been so disgusted by a forum in my ENTIRE LIFE.

    your either self indulgent, or so negative or selfish that well.....well im not sure where im going with this but i guess i just think you all suck.

    seriously, your no help, and this is by far the worst forum ever. and i refuse to have anything to do with it. not that, it really matters but none the less its a decent declaration.

    TOODLES YOU STUCK UP MUSO'S

    Would be really interested to know!

    Yes, I feel partly resposible for K Dragons previous outburst. He always appeared to be easily offended or rubbed up the wrong way (a true sensitive artistic type no doubt!!)

    I did raise an eyebrow (or two) when I discovered that he was taking over the running of the Big Gig event from Googglebox (who is a high energy, hyper, type individual).

    From my limited experience of running the Edge of the World Music Festival (EOTW) for 7 years running some time ago (1991 - 1997), one's personality needs to be VERY robust with lots of entheusiastic energy etc.

    Somehow K Dragon never struck me as this type of individual. He appeared to bemoan most of the Caithness music scene and most of its participants (that contributed to the org anyway).

    I hope I'm very wrong and wish him all the best with the big gig venture which I witnessed first hand last year (and brought back lots of good AND bad memories of the EOTW type gig)
    All the world's a stage and we are merely players . . . . .

    You could always try The Police? They're reforming in May, just in time for the summer festival season. I'll see if I can get you Sting's number.

    The Police? My singers pop is a singer and was in the police. Thats right folks, none other than Retired cop Robert Sutherland from Northern Constabulary. I'm sure he'll jump at the chance to participate!
