It's The End Of The World As We Know It( And I Feel Fine)
Could not resist the humorous take on Friday, shared by Gordon Stoker courtesy of an Austrian page entitled Athiesm. Since the prophecies of a people who did not forsee the coming of The Spanish Conquistadors should probably not to be overly trusted, a more festive offering from the BB archive. If you wondering what Mr. J Ferguson is up to now, more later.
A quick reminder of the show with Montague Jaques Fromage III at The South Sea in Broomhill, Sheffield tonight, details in last weeks edition.
Six more dates lined up to conclude 2012 on 118 gigs! Although, all remaining shows are of course, subject to the world not ending on Friday.
On Friday BB and MJFIII head north a little to The Black Swan, Bradford, which is on Thornton Road, serviced by the615/6 bus from Bradford Interchange. The bill for the night is completed by local bluesman Ben "Blue" Waters.
I suppose, it is one not to be missed, after all, if the Mayans transpire to be correct, then BB could be playing to a bigger pyrotechnic backdrop than Floyd/Muse and Ramstein could amass between them."Yes tonight, for one night only, The Black Swan, Bradford, you could be "The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe"".
Back in West Yorkshire on Saturday, for The Steampunk Christmas/Winter Solstice bash at The Snooty Fox, Wakefield on Kirkgate, just out ot the city centre. A good turn out already looking assured and the local Travelodge on Warrengate still with rooms available, so come and join us.
An afternoon start, with stalls, tea duelling and general antics. Music from early evening with a fabulous line up of BB, Montague Jaques and three bands who require no introduction, Birthrite, Cimson Clocks and Gladstone.
