good, bad and the ugly

What a day of immense shite. Raining down on me like a monsoon of inconsiderate piranhas hell bent on dragging me to Scunthorpe with chains of rose thorns...

No bike and no food makes breaking up that little bit worse!

Its O.K though as the world continues spinning. Each and every spin brings us closer to playing with these lovely chaps at bodega nottingham on one night in October (the 7th to be exact)

Yes the little comets, most looking forward to it.

Also looking into the idea of doing an alternative bingo night in Derby.. (yes honestly)

One more word of advice, if you don't know how complicated bicycles work.

A few top tips on procrastination.

Someone you might know once said something along the lines of 'time wasted enjoyed is not wasted' or something like that.

So you have something to do? And its really important? So important it needed to be done last week?

Well you better get on it with, why are you reading this rubbish? I'm guessing there are some other tabs open and someone is talking to you on FB chat..

Well sod it, just slack about a bit more. I suggest the best way to go about things is to wait until it is the absolute last minute, have a tantrum and a bit of cry before getting in done in half the time even professionals could do it.

The art of panic. May the power help you on your way. While we're at it, can anyone help me move house.....

Going to gigs

Going to gigs is never a waste of time. Yet it seems to be getting to the point where its dropping down the priority list, underneath such brilliant activities as 'spring cleaning' or watching 'shit tele'.

It seems the the most popular reasons for going to gigs is

1. A popular band who have made it and you know the words to their songs.
2. A mates band who you feel you have to go and see

or 3. You wandered in the venue mistaken it for your own front door in a drunken daze.

How many of you go to gigs not knowing what the band are like or even who they are? Just on the off chance you might discover something?

I mean why the fuck would anyone do that when you can just log on to spotify? I'll tell you why, because its better. Much in the same way sexual intercourse is better than surfing youporn.

In a exaggerated stance, leaving gigs to die and x factor to grow stronger year by year, the charts are going to be fucked over the hmv counter by jedward while credible artists give up writing songs as free downloads don't pay.

I'm sure its all different in London where the fog cleans your clothes and the cashpoints give you free money, everywhere else though, gigs seem to be loss leaders while the dubstep promoters rake it in charging " £7 DOOR TAX FOR DJ SPAZZCOCK'S BANGING SETLIST HE DID INNIT"

If you want to have a new favourite band in 5 years time and you want them to be good, then go to some gigs. Even if the band is shit you can slag them off, regardless of whether you're in a band or not.

(sometimes this is the most fun..)

2. Cambridge is full of twats.
3. Rainchester
4. Bowie is king.

And whats with this fucking hipster viral vid? Its fucking everywhere.

booze time.

But its not. The best way to start my weekend travelling about and doing some gigs, is to wait for weatherspoons to open its doors at seven to get my booze on.

Not serving till nine o clock in the morning. This is rubbish. I was well up for booze at seven.

Oh well two hours to go, then I will sober up so the rest of U.K doesn't think ttpf are borderline alcoholics.

Till the next pub with WI-FI!

Dance tax

As we all know, dancing at gigs is illegal. Not only is it illegal but its a massive social faux pas.

We buy fancy shoes so we can look at them during gigs, not so we can wear them out 'dancing'
Luckily our crowd are not ones to perform in such an outrageous way, instead behave way beyond social expectations by sometimes sitting down peacefully.

However I am getting worried that some people will break the rules, start letting go and wasting their bodies precious kinetic energy.

It has been proven in recent studies that dancing is contagious and will permanently give you chlamydia.

To protect you from this we will be imposing a dance tax at everyone of our gigs, all profits will go to buying 'Garfield' and 'Dilbert' cartoon books so you have been warned.

Thank you for your time.

the land of ttpf!

Its all good, that is basically the be all and end all.

Few gigs coming up. Taking our musical adventures to other parts of the land...
Been in 'talks'...

Sad to see that the summer, if it were to be a person, was a complete and utter twat who steals your food from your fridge and masterbates furiously all over your sofa. less said about him the better.

Hopefully studio time soon as we have better, harder, catchier songs.

We have also been approached by '' to write their new advert. exciting times!
