March 6/7/8, Swanage Blues Festival. Free gigs. Good atmosphere. Look out for Maxx and his red leather jacket. I'll be at the open mic at the Red Lion on Friday, and at the electric jams at the White Horse Sat/Sun, armed with the YellowBitch (l/h Strat).

Swanage is an old fashioned town on the south coast of England, west of Bournemouth (a town known for it's welcome of "Pink Gentlemen", check it out if you don't believe me). Access is not bad by road, flights from many places cheap on Ryanair into Bournemouth International. Trains to Wareham, then bus or taxi for the last 20 miles.

The festival runs on donations, so dig deep when the Official Bucket comes round.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

Wish I could go. Mayhaps you'll have someone take some video and you'll post it?

If you feel brave enough to give me an address where you can collect it, I could send you a dvd of the White Horse jams at the last festival. Better still, I'll talk to technologically advanced people and see if I can't get the footage on Youtube or similar.

Failing that, mug an Indian, steal his canoe and paddle like hell?

I was going to drive over to Stirchley tonight and get up at the Roadhouse open mic, but my other half is terified some dumb bunny will drive into me because they can't understand snow is slippery. The other option is to get a bus into town and do a slot at the Island Bar's open mic. The Island is just along Suffolk Street from the Alex. Can you get to Long Itchington at all? There's a folky/acoustic thing once a month at the Green Man, and I think (will check) they were going to be doing electric jams some Fridays.

There's a charity bash happening in the next few months where I'll play (mostly rocky stuff) with the community organisation I'm involved with, and I'll probably also do a session at the same event with my fellow blues conspirator, Clive, and that's where my heart lies . No, no, not with Clive, with the blues.

It's on the A452 anyway, so finding it won't be that difficult.

Did you get anybody to put you on Youtube?

I am making enquiries in that direction, more news soon.

The community band seems to be pulling together well, except we risk losing our bass player to the "employment system" soon. He'll be required to attend this "New Deal" thing all day, every day, for 3 months.

It's stupid really, what he's doing now only costs the state his benefits but he reaches out to people who are at risk of falling ill or those who are ill and need help to re-establish themselves as human beings. He accepts that at 57 with only specialist qualifications that will not be required much, he doesn't really have much hope of getting a job at all, so why not let him do something of real value to society?

Hey ho.

Sorted: dvd going in the post tomorrow to JT in Leicester, he's going to load it on to Youtube (video footage) and Myspace (audio tracks). Terrifying, ain't it?

JT says that unles I can find the other players to give consent for the video footage, all he can do is load the 3 audio tracks to Myspace.

Meet tyou by the bridge, Pam, shades, collar turned up. It'll be one package and you didn't see me, OK?

Ha
Well is it on Youtube or Myspace yet?
If it is then I've clearly missed the bit when you told us!
