Re: Obligations of Artists

I have interacted with FT three times but all were a while back: - he handed me a setlist after MD played Truck Festival in 2004(ish) - I cheekily asked him to watch my beer at Thee Parkside in San Francisco in 2009 when I had to leave the bar, having arrived early, to go outside and pay to get back...

Re: Rare piece of FT merch for sale (Old Rave shirt)

Yes! Now you mention it I remember buying it from the Pure Groove website, must have been left over. I had 25 in my head but that seemed too low, it was definitely either 25 or 50 though I'm sure.

Rare piece of FT merch for sale (Old Rave shirt)

Hi folks, I've just put this shirt on ebay and thought it may be of interest to someone on here. My memory is also completely blank on why this was produced, all I can remember is that it was a very limited run and possibly hand-screened, if anyone can remember the story that would be cool. As you'l...

Re: R.I.P Nick Mann

I never met Nick but I knew of him through Punktastic and a mutual love of lower-league football. I'd heard about the incident but only found it was him this morning. As Frank says, really sad stuff.

Re: Looking to Buy/Trade

I've got the yellow/black splatter and the softcore CD that I could probably let go for the right price. If you're interested email me on whereistherent at gmail dot com

Much to my dismay I can't find my 4 track demo CD, I know I had one but I've not seen it for about 6 years :(

Re: Love Ire And Song

It's commonly attributed to Churchill but no-one seems to actually know it's origin. Just had a scan on Google and this was the best link I could find, but I've definitely read a more thorough piece on the quote before http://katecarruthers.com/2005/02/alleged-quote-by-churchill-on-being-a-socialist...

Re: The Gaslight Anthem

I love them. I got into Sink or Swim which just blew me away at the time. I saw them play their first ever UK shows which was fun, including an in-store at Rough Trade East with a handful of other people. The only album I'm not really keen on is American Slang, Handwritten was a real return to form ...

Re: UK Tour April 13

Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, London sold out. Birmingham standing sold out. Why is the west midlands always the last one to go? I feel ashamed on behalf of my fellow citizens. Happens everytime, god only knows why. This may be wrong but I put it down to catchment area. London is obviously way bigger...

Re: London Show Tickets

The trouble with the secondary market is that if you do this... I remember Arctic Monkeys did something a while ago where you needed to present the credit/debit card used to buy the tickets to get in. And/or this.... Glastonbury have successfully beat the re-sale market. You need to register beforeh...

Re: UK Tour April 13

I know that, but judging by the demand for the pre-sale I imagine that the London show at least will sell out by half 9 on Friday morning. I find it hard to believe that the dates publicised so far will be it for this tour.
