Oh bless you, you Brummie lot.

Eat more gray pays and drink more mild, that's my advice.  You'll see the world more clearly then.

P.S. yow dow spake as proppa like we.

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

Bostin'

in answer to the other thread (seems logical to reply here!), The Station doesn't really do gigs....yet!  I put on a quieter affair last month midweek, and it went well and the pub was happy.  So now trying this, Friday night with more riffs and volume!  I'll see how it goes and hopefully the pub won't get annoyed at volume levels then Bingo! New gig venue.....

Looking forward to it though, see you guys there!

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

I salute you for opening up new territories.

Better put the word out to make sure everyone is extra-careful not to break any furniture or anything, though.  That can come later.

haha, loving the reference for the zine name!

...tis all in peeces, all cohaerence gone...

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

Living in Birmingham now. Can only get to Saturday or Sunday gigs at the moment because of work. Anything coming up?
Still wanting to make a band with people, but probably in the new year now.
Also, what is everyone's favourite pub?

I'd rather haemorrhage my own head into a cesspit of gimps.

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

not much on gig-wise off the top of my head. napalm death at HMV institute next month, and kylesa are playing in january..
I'm still up for a jam at some point.
I like the lamp tavern in digbeth, and can usually be found in the goose in selly oak on weekends, not sure why though

The Barton Arms in Newtown is amazing - great ales, amazing Thai food and absolutely gorgeous Victorian decor.  It used to have a website that I was going to link here, but that seems to be dead now.

The Lamp Tavern in Digbeth in great too, though, as a few others have said in this thread.  Most of the pubs in Digbeth are good, in fact.

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

My lady works in Digbeth so hopefully get to check these pubs out soon!

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

never been to the bartons arms, had some hairy experiences in the surrounding area when I was young(er) and stupid(er) though.

tommy, I really want this band to happen. if you're ever bored/stuck for something to do give us a shout

Re: Birmingham (/West Midlands)

Aye, definitely! Send me your email address in a pm and will try sort something in the new year. Doing evening work at the moment and ain't even free any weekends till after xmas now anyway! Been talking to chaz too. Don't know if you know him? I hope you're not arch enemies.

I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
