Can't think of a more appropriate venue than the Citrus for Monuments first outing either!!!

Keep that date in your diary people, fingers crossed, it's gonna happen!! I can hear the sharpening of pencils and the rustle of note books already.......... wink

Hope that sideyways dancing is being worked on Mikey....... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Sleepwalker... What a perfect timing. That would be exellent time for me. I am on my summer holiday that time and I could spent few days in Scotland and have a little time just for myself. Everyone married with kids, knows what I am talking about.
I was hoping to visit Glasgow, but Edinbourg is as fine. I have been once in E.(1986-87?) but never in G.

Well, are we talking about voxgate as well? I quess it is obvious wink

Please Folks, participate!!!

I am looking forward to hear from you Sleepwalker (Monument). Just as soon as you know for sure the date, IŽll reserve ticket. I have to be sure, Žcause I am going to fly cheap excited no money return, no flight changes what so ever ha

Cheers, ari

If you need professional photographer to capture that evening or/and some Monument "press shots"(for free), please let me know. Perhaps you could find me some cheap hotel to stay in return.
It is no way problem to me to carry some of my stuff. Believe me, I am used to do it smile And IŽll carry some camera anyway...

Sam,
I'll be practicing the sideyways dancing in Florida for a couple of weeks before the gig...
I'll either come back tanned, toned and tripping the light fantastic smile
or sunburnt, sozzled and suffering.... icky
Either way, the sound of Ultravox will be blaring from at least one car on the east coast of the US........I really should get my hearing checked...I think it comes from rehearsing with Monument on Saturday mornings...I always end up "Deaf in the Afternoon".... zzzzz

Auld Reekie is an affectionate term for Edinburgh borne from their neighbourly habit of projecting toilet waste out the windows of tenement buildings on to unsuspecting passers-by below. Since the core of Edinburgh was concentrated on the hill that makes up the Royal Mile, the said effluent would run in rivulets down the hill to the site of the former Nor' Loch (now Princes St Gardens) where they used to drown Witches. evil laugh

Whilst the above is true , it isnt why Edinburgh is called "Auld reekie". Reekie in old Scots translates as "smokey" rather than the current meaning of "smelly" . Got nickname because of dense population on the Royal Mile creating lots of smoke from fires and creating a permanent haze over the city.

Re: Monument gig!!! - Thu, 24 Jun 2004 04:40:00

We're not exactly painting a desirable picture of Edinburgh here in a thread that is trying to get people to come and support the Monument gig.... confused

Surely we could come up with a slogan that would project it in a good light...
Something like -

"Come to Edinburgh for a laugh and go back home in stitches"
smile

Seriously though, Edinburgh is a beautiful city.... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Thanks for the information David L....That's a right guid willie-waught I owe ye' (If ye come up fur the gig of course....) excited
