    haha betsy tinkler

    i'm in the band itself and you'd be surprised about the confusion with the name lol there is a long story behind it tho

    hogmanay was great crack and it was a testament to the community that so many folk turned up despite the cold weather and the rain later on so thanks to all who were present and made it such a good night

    I had a listen to the songs on myspace, excellent, your right the recordings aren't great but the songs shine through, remind me a lof of the early days of "The Jam" ... great stuff (maybe Chobbers can get you in the studio). Hope you get another bass player, if I was back home I'd help ya out

    thanks jeemag - the recordings were done very basically on the PC at home jus for the sake of gettin them down really... thanks for the feedback tho, much appreciated.

    cheers chobbers - kowalski kinda died a death really lol its only me an perry left here, the rest of the lads moved onto pastures new so we jus picked up the pieces an carried on!

    as for hogmanay, we got a shot of a PA that we use for giggin from a mate in the band Colin and Camra lent us somoe monitors and off we went - was a good ngt in all, a few younger bands played as well... how did the thurso party go?

    It was Mark "Patty" Patterson. The band was called "Funkinstein" and all I can remember playing is Superstition and a picture falling on Steven Donn's girlfriends heid! I gave my Marshall and Laney to Magee I think, cannae mind. I am more interested in my electric guitar which has gone missing, I might enlist your services as a detective to find it for me!

    I can't believe someone remembers that LOL

    That to date was my one and only gig, but just you wait, I am cookin up someting
