And so it begins...Monument Gig - Fri, 05 Nov 2004 07:11:00

Folks,
we have secured a small gig which will give us the opportunity for a technical run-through of our live set in front of a real, live audience...

The date is November 26th.
Location is The MacGregor Bar in Gourock (28 miles west of Glasgow).

Support from my very good friends 'The Ten Gallon Bratz'

If anyone can make it we will be thrilled, but rest assured, all being well, we will take ourselves on the road and hopefully appear in various places in the UK and/or beyond....

We'll let you know how we get on... smile

Flyer from Davy B!

I'll put this out on a mailer on Sunday night, it'll coincide with the site relaunch, so it'll all be big news. No really. It's actually happening this time. I swear! ;o)



The McGregor is in Shore Street in Gourock (20 minutes from Glasgow).

I can't make this one, but the very best of luck guys - knock 'em dead! We want some dates a bit further south!!! excited

Re: And so it begins...Monument Gig - Fri, 05 Nov 2004 22:00:00

Yes, pics would also be highly appreciated!!!!
Sleepy, will Your ARP be fixed until then or will You use the NL for those parts? Hell, I wish I would be in Scotland that week!!!!!

Mike, just for interest: is the "y" in "Lyden" spoken like the "i" in "little" or the "y" in "Lynott"?

Re: And so it begins...Monument Gig - Fri, 05 Nov 2004 22:15:00

Nils,
its pronounced as a 'y' as in 'try' and as in John Lydon of PIL and the Sex Pistols (albeit with a different vowel).
I've always pronounced Lynott as with an 'i'. Guess that's why so many people mispronounce my name also....especially in Germany... smile

Davy,
if you're going to pick me up on the fact that the venue is upstairs from the bar at the MacGregor, then I will pick you up on the spelling....It is MacGregor with an 'a'....heh heh... excited

Re: And so it begins...Monument Gig - Fri, 05 Nov 2004 22:19:00

For Reference..... My name is pronounced Davy 'Bee' as in the wee thing that flys around and can literally be a pain in the Ass.

Just thought id let you all know, in case you were wondering.

I'll get my coat.........

Davie B (Bee)

Hi Mr. Bee and Mr. Lyden with "y" like in "try"!
I know that "Lynott" is spoken that way, maybe it wasn't recognizable that I used the name as an opposite example for "little".
The fact is that the right pronounciation of "Lyden" in german sounds like "leiden", which means "to suffer". I just wanted to ask if that's right smile .

Your flyer (with "y" like in......okay, I'll stop it) looks great! I really wish You the best for Your gig!!!

Do Danny and Colin come there, too?

Cerise: What's the best format to save a CorelDRAW file so I can send Davy a decent copy of the logo? I've tried .PDF and even copying it as an image to Word but, in both instances, the text came out with incorrect spacing (no doubt due to the fact that I don't have a specified point size for the text).

Davy: No offence mate, but the logo looks cussing . It's just because you've used a copy of a copy of the jpeg I sent Don, I suppose. It's way too elongated and the text is pretty fuzzy. If I can get the original to you in some useable format it will look much better (sorry for being so picky but Monument does have a high standard to live up to... especially now that the music's there! wink )

Thanks for any help/suggestions.

Best of luck for the gig, Chaps. Lack of cash would stop me getting up to Glasgow anyway, but I also have a wedding to go to on the Saturday, so no chance of splashing out on the CC and getting up there...

Hope it goes well! laugh

Re: And so it begins...Monument Gig - Sun, 07 Nov 2004 02:36:00

I'll be there. 'Bout time I headed north again.

To fly or to drive, that is the question. Flying is certainly easier, but then it's just me and a bag.

I can send a decent version - actually I'm about to get them up in the Media Archive anyway after launch, will try to do them today if I can. Davy - can you use an Adobe Illustrator EPS (vector) format logo? Or do you need good quality JPEG/TIFF (raster) version instead?

Hi!
Sadly I can't afford to do that. I'm a student for four years now and money has become a foreign word for me.

Re: And so it begins...Monument Gig - Mon, 08 Nov 2004 04:41:00

As the date mentioned is a Friday I won't be able to make it either. The place where I work closes for good that day and I can't see me getting the day off. frown After that I'll be working permanently in Mackemland near to where Piggy works.
Next time lads.....Saturday Saturday Saturday. wink

The HIghland lassies have been having a few problems in their lives for a few months which have curbed our roadshows some what. The problems aren't over yet but both of us would really like to be there for the first gig - only problem is we may have to bring all the kids, dogs, cats, hamsters etc with us eek Mind you if the pigmeister turns up he could bond with my menagerie wink

No, it's just if I brought a bit more stuff with me I could fix the ARP, and be a bit more roadie-like, and less of a ligger. I could bring the Trusty Transit, which is all kitted out for sleeping in. There again - Scotland in November - is that wise?

Dear Chaps,

Hope you have a great gig! If anything goes pear-shaped, don't worry about it too much - it takes awhile to iron things out. And that's what next gigs are for.

Best wishes to you!

Sleepwalker, Dave B...

Well - life is sometimes.... my trip cancelled - have to try January ´05 Voxgate.

My beloved GrandFather slept away last night. He was 95! He´s mind worked perfectly till the end, but body became too weak. His wife lived also over 90 and past away 2 years ago.

It´s not so long time ago I met him, he was so happy to see my youngest son for the first time (he lived quiet far from Helsinki) and we had very interesting conversation about time before our indepence, watched old photographs (he as a child!), laughed, I took some photos... cry

Have to be there with all my GrandFather´s 4 daugters, their 6 children, and their 11 kids (oldest is 17) to prepare him in his last journey... where ever it is....maybe to see GrandMother again... who knows...

Well, I'd love to go, since we were headed that way (well, England) sometime next year anyway! We just don't have enough money saved up yet! I believe we have just enough for the flight, but that's about it. It's still a couple months away though. Anything's possible, I hope! laugh
