Oooooh. The Inverness one looks like a wee maybe from us ... tis but 3 days after Changing Stations' 50th birthday, so looks like a fine way of extending the celebrations ... hmmmm!

DCA sounds good, will definitely make it along. Will need to think of a searching question for Des

Kwaing dearest - we would love to book 4 tickets for the Eden Court date on 6th Sept. It's not up on their online booking yet. Any tips?

faction north is the film company dealing with these screenings, and is usually bang up to speed when it comes to announcing dates etc. with twits & facepokes ... hence me knowing nothing about any of it  :)

Still nothing up on the Eden Court site, or the Faction North one for that matter, but our mate Stewie has found another vague reference to it somewhere or other ... enough to make that our official plan for the weekend. Hurrah!
Feel free to insult Changing Stations about his age. He'll be approaching SAGA territory by then...

Just saw this at The Filmhouse tonight. I'd highly recommend it.
KC was there and played (part of) a song that was axed from the film, to do with kids playing with toy weapons and wanting to be mature and then growing up and ending up in the trenches wanting their mothers.
I was just wondering if anyone knows what the song is called and where I might be able to get a hold of it. I'd really like to hear it again.
If he's playing at the other film screenings and he starts playing it, for god's sake, tell him to play all of it!

I shall indeed attempt to play, what feels like, all 17 verses of it as the tour goes on - I saw a few folks leaving and thought I should probably move things along, give folks a chance to make last orders in the Golf.

The song title is "(unaware of) the grip", for now at least, and I'm hoping that Catriona McKay and Chris Stout like it enough for our February collaboration in the Queen's Hall.

As it turned out I missed last orders in the Golf by 10 minutes - despite it being only 10.45pm I was told with a smile that "the bar shuts at 11 o'clock tonight, Darlin'".

If it's any help I don't think the bars ever close in Nottingham.

See you Thursday Des.

Really enjoyed the screening in Nottingham last night and was really pleased to see how well attended it was. Loved the songs that didn't make the film. Especially "the grip" :'(
Thanks KC and Virginia - now where on earth am I going to put that massive poster??
