Sneaked a band in tonight....

Mrs Smiffy was out tonight on a works do in Manchester - so we sneaked out on the train to Greenfield and watched "Decoy" at the "Railway" pub - a covers band but very good at what they do - Paul Weller, Ian Dury, Coldplay and Pink Floyd to name but a few - truly an eclectic mix !

    Stay away from Leeds fest in future you creepy old fool, i've been going for 4 years and we don't need bigoted arseholes like you going

    People who keep their wristbands on after the festival has finished are just attention seekers "yeah i went to Leeds, aren't I rock n roll!" Sounds to me like a sad twat approaching 50 trying to reclaim his lost youth. At least some people I know who kept theirs on don't fucking take pictures of it and post them on the internet "Hey world, look at me i went to Leeds, aren't I rock n roll!" I hope to god I don't end up like you

    Oh and did I mention you look like a melted Bob Holness

    Glad to see you signed your post "Wanker" - I assume that's why you left a gap at the bottom.

    1. "I've been going to Leeds for 4 years" - 4 whole years - WOW - I went to my first Reading Festival in 1973 - and have been to Reading / Leeds / Donnington on a regular basis ever since - and am now going with my three kids who were brought up listening to "our kind" of music (just think - they could have grown up to be chavs !).

    2. "Bigoted arseholes" - I can live with the "arsehole" (!!) - but please explain your reasoning behind the use of the word "bigoted" - a person intolerant of any ideas other than his own - do explain how that definition fits into what this blog is all about - i.e. a bit of a laugh...

    3. "just attention seekers" - I thought it might just be a bit of fun keeping it on - it also gave rise to this very blog what you have deigned to read. The one person who I've met so far "still wearing" was young enough to be my son - so "attention seekers" as you put it come in all age groups.

    4. "trying to reclaim his lost youth" - see 1. above. Believe it not, you are still allowed to enjoy rock music even when you're approaching 50. It's great to see bands like Wolfmother - new - and Pearl Jam - not so new - banging out stuff that I like (and that's the nearest you'll get to me being "bigoted" - I know what I like) - and festivals like Leeds and Download still have something to offer to "sad twats approaching 50".

    4. "I hope to god (sic) I don't end up like you" - what is your wish for 30/40 years on then ??

    5. "a melted Bob Holness" - be warned - you'll get old one day - we all end up looking like that ...

    Keep rocking "Wanker" - maybe we'll meet at Leeds next year - always happy to discuss music with others.



    (PS I forgot - people who DO keep their wristbands on are able to claim free beer next year - always a bonus...)

    (PPS - you from Manchester ? Going to see Dragonforce in December ? See you there - or maybe - just maybe - Arctic Monkeys et al is your bag - that's the nearest I can get to an insult - cus I'm a really nice guy - really)

    FAO Mr. Wanker

    You must have a really full and interesting life if you spend your free time looking for people to insult.

    I intend to rock till I’m 100. Festivals are for everyone but twats like yourself.

    Hopefully you’ll be too old to go next year.

    dear wanker,

    its a sad day when you have to get your kicks out of insulting someones hobby, trust me i know, i was 12 once. you dont see us slandering your name because you a level 9 warrior elf (probably) but thats just the way the world works. Not many people go to gigs and festivals with their dad but i think its nice that me and my siblings have no problem doing this. So if in the eyes of small minded fools this means im going to gigs with a 50 year old bigoted arsehole i couldnt care less (your welfare is exempt from this statement btw)
    All the best, Dunc

    oh, and bob holness doesnt have shit on my dad

    Who's a bigot - the man who enjoys music and has a joke around with his blog, or the anonymous writer (aka "wanker") who thinks that people shouldn't be allowed to go to Leeds because of their age?
