Time For A Political Party
Yes, it's conference time again for The Official Monster Raving Loony Party, this time they are off to the picturesque town of Llandrindod Wells in Powys.
The venue is The Hampton Hotel on Temple Street and will run from September 26th to the 28th.
Llandrindod Wells is reasonably well served by rail to it's own station.
There will be entertainment on the Friday and Saturday nights, featuring BB, The Big Fibbers, Buster and The Gonads, The Hurricanes and a morris group by the title of The b.u.m.s.!
Should be an interesting weekend as BB have acquired the services of Gripper and The Gurnards drummer John Ferguson, whom many of you will remember fondly as a previous member of BB.
In a reciprocal arrangement both Dale and Molly will be joining members of The Gurnards to play as Buster and The Gonads, confused yet!
Those of you who were lucky enough to have been at The Brothers Over The Hill bike rally a couple of weeks back may well have noted that drumming duties were being undertaken by Gladstone's Dave Hutchins and many thanks to him for the contribution.
All of which i am sure leaves you wondering where Axel is at the moment. Well he is currently taking some time away to consider his position within the grand scheme of things.
Whilst it seems a little strange without Axel's pink glad frame behind the skins, ever presnt since BB became a gigging entity, please join us in offering him the space to make his deliberations.
October currently looks to be a quiet time for BB, interspersed with a couple of solo gigs from Dale at local haunts, The George and Dragon on Bridge Street, Belper, Saturday the 4th and The Fishpond in Matlock Bath, Friday the 10th.
Even closer to home, the Monday night "strum wot yu brung" sessions, featuring Dale, continue weekly at The Bulls Head, Belper Lane End.
