As shamelessly cut and pasted from another thread... wink

Folks, just a quick note to confirm that Monument will be playing in Greenock (26 miles - a short direct train ride - from Glasgow)on Friday 21st July 2006. Hopefully we'll be able to see some fellow Vox fans at the gig. Full details, times and running order to follow...

We did ponder on an afternoon gig on the 22nd, but the logistics of getting a decent crowd on a Saturday afternoon coupled with staging the gig at a decent time to allow folks (and ourselves) to get to Glasgow for the John Foxx gig were against us...
Cheers...
excited

I've tried to get them to come up here, but I guess it would just be way too expensive. Ah, well, one day...! (No pun intended.) laugh

Well Ladies!

Monument would love to play over in your beloved homelands, but the logistics of it all would be a total financial no no, not unless you guys win the lottery & fly us ..(& the gear) over there!

Maybe 'One Small Day'..(Pun Intended!...lol biglaugh )

Ha! Ha! Ha! laugh

If I won the lottery, Mr. X and I would probably pack up our things and move over there so we'd be able to see you in your beloved homeland anyway! But, chances are if I won, it would be millions of dollars, so I could probably manage both. I'll see what I can do. wink

If it works, I am willing to pay a lot for getting your knowledge Tara. And will I get the exclusive rights for making a book, a film.... ?
For the book I have already the title:
"How to get the jackpot for dummies" (registration pending on this title already, sorry mates) laugh

If I win the next jackpot this weekend(which is over 100 million US) do you think I could get Ultravox to play a couple for all of us?

All together? Assuming you are meaning the RIE- line up,..... probably not.
But on one stage, nobody is able to see the others, seperated with THIN WALLs, it could work...
But your money is better invested in my "PLAN A" I think. Remember it?

You could try...but I'd want the original line-up with Foxx and Shears. wink

If you want the Midge line-up...well...keep in mind that ABBA turned down something like a billion dollars to reunite. Ultravox may be tempted for $100,000,000 but whether they'd actually go through with it is another thing altogether.

Hi Davy

Do you have a venue for the Greenock gig? Don mentioned the possibility of transport being arranged from Glasgow.. any more news on this?

On the Voxgate front for the Saturday - does anyone know what time and at which place people are meeting up?

Thanks..

I think the problem I had with them was not the synth itself but the way they were generally used - "ooh look at all these presets". yuk If I never hear the DX bass sound again I'll be a happy bunny. smile

I saw an Associates concert on BBC many years ago (after Alan Rankine had departed) and the keyboard player then had some exceptional sounds which were streets ahead of the presets. smile

By the way, good luck with the gig.

I'm not quite sure how we got ourselves to this point, but it seems that (after a mad game of dare last night) we've committed ourselves to both the Monument gig and John Foxx in Glasgow next month...

bemused

So, we'll be seeing you there chaps!

smile

On a slightly seperate note, a small message for Danny Mitchell. Danny, if you're reading this my friend, my assessment made in Edinburgh in January last year that you are a very bad influence still stands. Come and prove it on the 21st July by buying us both a pint you old devil!

wink

Roll on July...
