  • Byker Groove!

    Good grief, I do feel most unwell..

    But what a great weekend! Wonderful to finally put some faces to some otherwise familiar vultures, and what a splendid bunch of righteous dudes you all are too.

    Thanks to Sie, Sayers and all for organising yet another fine mess!

    Oh, and some great music too! Might follow up with a tracklisting when I get my poor head back together..
    Let him have the lot for £2.00 - we were only going to throw 'em out anyway...

    Mr Sayers informs me it was very good. He's even been carbooting today with Towny (that's true dedication!)

      Had a great time, I can't believe I managed to play pool (and win )
      the state i was in!

      Great to put faces to names, even though I was introducing myself to
      the locals as, Chris..... scriptfliper, much to their bemusement
      How did you all do in the nightclub??

      Great music! can't really remember peoples tunes but our james
      has the CD's, looking forward to hearing them.
      (not sure about mine, I was convinced i could here the record i was cueing
      up through the monitor, I mentioned it to James this morning and
      he said the crossfader didn't work! )

      Cheers to everyone involved!

        I am shattered!

        A cracking weekend, though I must apologise, once more, to anyone caught up in one of my rants! What can I say - it was a "zero tolerance" weekend. But Star Wars III *was*shit...

        It was great meeting everyone, and I particularly enjoyed walking the streets of Newcastle even more so when we actually got the directions right...

        Tracks I played:

        Blackanized ft MC Mello - Ham n' Cheese
        Jerry Beaks ft Sense Live - Hungry
        Jungle Brothers - Jungle Brother (Stereo MC's Mix)
        Rahzel - All I Know
        Gunshot - Colour Code (Melanin Vocal Mix)
        Gutter Snypes - Who Fell
        Hero No.7 - Cut-up Party Tune 201

        I have already forgotten virtually everything that everyone else played! Any chance I could get a copy of the CDs you burnt?

        So, where and when's the next one?
        Don't call it a comeback... H, N, and the number 7.
        Ok, it's a bit of a comeback, I suppose...

          What a top night - cool tunes, top geezers and waaay too much beer!

          Cheers to Mr Sayers for sorting it all out. I'll post up a trackie once I'm better
