...so there's no excuses!

Everyones favourite bunch of drunken punksters - the infamous My Gay Monkey are playing the legendary 12 Bar Club on Saturday 25th September! http://www.12barclub.com/

A bumper turn out is already expected, but don't miss the oppotunity to see West London's finest beer swilling axe smashing lunatics performing the usual collection of rubbish, plus a couple of new songs (wooo!).
This will be the first gig with new drummer Gary Dreadful (formerly of the Damned) who has planted his ample rear on the famously dangerous MGM stool following the bizarre departure of ex-simian tubthumper Andy (and his previous 4 predecessors :shock: ).

Even if you can't stand the band (and I wouldn't blame you if you did), it is also the night that Micky Bananas will be celebrating surviving another year of alcohol and self abuse. Plans are still sketchy at the mo, but I'm sure it will involve Rock n Roll, and probably a very late night either downstairs at the Mean Fiddler, Metro club, Collide-a-scope or some other dingy pit in town :wink: .

If that doesn't get your juices flowing, then you must be dead from the waist down! :D

As long as there's sex and drugs, I can do without the Rock 'n' Roll....

I hate to say it but with that name aren't you tempting fate a little.

Oh absolutely! We wouldn't want it any other way! (first rehearsal with him tonight :shock: - I'll let you know how it goes on Monday).

Anyhoo, any gig that passes without a major injury is a bonus to be honest, actually playing well is of secondary importance! :D

I have a punk band. Well, it’s not a proper band as such but all of my imaginary friends are in it. I’m the lead singer and go by the name Awful Alex. Then there’s Jeremy Appalling on guitar, Norris Reprehensible on drums and, on bass, Colin Shit.

So far we’ve done gigs the length and breadth of my flat and we’re hoping to tour the garden in the near future. Needless to say, I get all the (imaginary) chicks.

Hmm? Is self-abuse life threatening? After all, it is sex with your best friend...oh you mean the rock and roll lifestyle generally, not wanking! :wink:


PS Can't come sorry, up North at a wedding.

Tommorrow night suckers! Be there or face the wrath of the monkeys! :D

On at about 9:15 (off by twenty past! :wink: )

Stand by for action! Anything could happen in the next half hour!

isnt the 12 bar club a bit small for those kind of shenanigans?

Small but perfectly formed (one might say intimate). Nice to get up close and personnel with our adoring public - and it makes a change to be able to see just who exactly threw that bottle and my head. :shock:
Not much space for Weasel on the stage for his 30 seconds of fame during Scum - it's worth coming just for that surely! :D

Are you you are going to play if there is a negative result in the derby against Harrow Borough? Or will you be sobbing your heart out with Cock Weasel? That bloody Cockers is trying to get me to wear a Wealdstone shirt for the game - can't I just wear me O's one? :wink:

Wearing red tomorrow is probably not going to be a good idea! :D

As the old saying goes - win or lose it's on the booze! :wink:

Know nowt about the Millwall bloke, but Ian H seems to rate him. Norwegians are a bit weird apparently (so the promoter says) but have got the last slot which is around midnight when things are tailing off.
Know the Vas Deferens quite well. On their night they're quite good - but also seen them completely shite. A bit rocky with a few Oi'ish covers :shock: . Absolutely abysmal cover of Born to Lose.

I'm not really seling this am I? :?
It's normally a fiver at the 12 bar. It may go up to £6 as the evening goes on I don't know. Still, a poorly octopuss is a small price to pay to see the damned's ex drummer having a heart attack half way through our set (also it's open season in Spicer hunting country, so take plenty of junk along to lug at him!) :D

oh, I didn't mention that there may be one or two high profile members of punk royalty coming along as well (we've got friends in high places).

Not going to mention names but......
a friend of the drummer from a previous band who wears womens clothing quite a lot :wink:
a skinny bloke who used to play guitar in the greatest band ever to come out of west london (and as pictorial evidence will confirm a very close and personnel friend of myself) :wink:

Of course this could be a load of old bollocks - but would I lie to you? :D

Happy birthday!

I'm guessing... but is it a) Captain Sensible and b) Mick Jones?

Muchos gracias to everyone who came on Saturday night - good time had by all and we had the largest audience of all the bands on the night. :D
Sorry that my voice wasn't up to much - 90 minutes of uncontrollable screaming at footie in the afternoon had taken it toll by the time we got on stage! :oops:
