Pete the Pick hasn't half seen some shite in his time....

Backslapping time. Well done us. We are fantastic.

Unfortunately, now that I do have something to report for June 17th, functionality on this board does not allow me to insert the entry in its rightful place on page 4, but instead means it's appended!

17th June
2007
The Draytones
The Deputies
Marner Brown
The BibleCodeSundays
Adam Norsworthy
The Vibrants
Dark Ska
The Mustangs
Strawberry Hill House, Twickenham

Billed as a Music & Fun Day, promoted by the RFU, this all-dayer was located within the grounds of a Gothic pile known as Strawberry Hill House, within the St. Mary's College site. I've managed to miss this event in recent years as it coincides with the annual Greek Odyssey, but I made it this time. Primarily showcasing local talent, it was a mixed bag. The Draytones came over as Strokes wannabes, while The Deputies were much more Americana-oriented. Marner Brown are currently tipped as local contenders for the "The Big Time", and were ceratinly useful enough, though not enough to float Swifty / Sledgey's boat. But then he is a fussy git! The BibleCodeSundays were announced as having some connection with the MacManus Brothers, who are oft to be found treading the boards at local hostelries, and themselves are indeed related to one Declan MacManus, late of this parish. So, it was appropriate Celtic fare from this lot, eg., "I'm A London Irishman", diddly-dee etc. Good stuff.The Vibrants took us back to the garage, while Dark Ska gave us Nutty-Boy covers. Unfortunately, in the warm light of day, "One Step Beyond" doesn't quite evoke the frenzied reaction usually forthcoming from yours truly when experienced under the cover of darkness! The Mustangs brough us Rock'n'Roll, but as it was beginning to cool down, me and The Lady decided to quit before bill-topper Tom Nolan and The Bluescasters took to the stage. Still, I've seen Tom loads of times (he's "musical Director" at the Eel Pie Club) so it's not a great loss. I'm certain to see him before too long. A good day out, and the presence of a stall from The Real Ale Shop in Twickenham helped lubricate events. Still, the star of the show was the House itself, which I'd never seen before. All proceeds were going towards its Restoration fund, but it does look grand......

Pete. I know you have followed the arc of one Declan McManus throuhout this thread. If you are the completeist I suspect, you will want to track down Elvis's acting credentials in an episode of the Guy Noir - Private Eye chronicles within the Garrison Keillor show on BBC4Extra from Saturday the 3rd December 2011 available on iPlayer now. Elvis plays a fallen cleric with a secret life, and he plays the part perfectly. Keep on rockin'. Takamine, all mine!

If I ever get a publisher, it'll be soooo much better.

Worked on it ever since.

Otherwise, my archival tendencies have been involved in Eel Pie Island's musical history: Facebook or http://eelpieislandmusic.com/eel-pie-island-roll-call or http://www.eelpiemuseum.co.uk and see what I mean
