Just a little reminder. Coming up this Friday (10th June 2011) in Luton is the legendary Chickenbone John. Details here. If anyone from this area plans to go and is traveling round the M25 in either direction and fancies teaming up with others along the way then please mention it here. 

I am not sure yet, but if I go (which I would very much like) I will be traveling from J17 to J21 of the M25 and then north on to the M1. If anyone is doing a similar route please get in touch. 

Something else that caught my eye (ouch, must remember to trim those strings) is that the one and only StumbleCol is playing at the Bell Lane Solstice (near Cambridge I believe) which is a free music festival in Barton Mills. This is happening on the 18th June 2011 and more details can be found here

Hope this helps people to link up, have a good time and possibly save a little on travel. 

All the best. 

John

Thanks a lot...my first time at this venue, so I've no idea what it will be like..so any support greatly appreciated. It would also be cool to meet-up with any of you guys..also Home Grown Music Collective Tee Shirts & merchandising available on the night!!! Anybody know of a decent pub nearby for a post-gig natter and jam?

 

Legendary..blimey..OK. I'll go with that!!!

Looks like a fun summer. Looking at the links prompted me to search for The Surprises - I see Mr Chickenbone's single is a collectors item but I can't find an audio on the internet - hint hint John!
Wish I could be there!  You are all invited to open mike night Friday in Harlan Iowa.
Thanks for the invitation. If I still had my private jet I could make both due to the time difference. Unfortunately hard times have meant that the jet had to be sold along with the aircraft carrier (but I did get a good price for them on eBay). Have fun of Friday.

I'll see if I can set up the digital vinyl transcribing deck and get a digitised version done.

I've always loved "Flying Attack" and I've got an MP3 of it that I digitised off a tape of an old Peel show. However I think a vinyl transcription will be rather better quality - and if anyone's going to post it then it should be the man himself.
