Lower Coke Sun 21 Mar

05 Mar 10 - 10:07 AM (#2856749)
Subject: Lower Coke Sun 21 Mar
From: Richard Bridge

The last* of the Lower Coke Winter sings this year         Sun 21 Mar.

(* - it might not be the last, I am still trying to decide whether there willbe ne in April)


From opening time (noon) until closing time or earlier surrender to darts matches, darts competitions for the Sunday joint (meat, what else might I have meant?) foolsball on the square eyed God - usually till about 6-ish or 7-ish on March 21st.

The Nag's Head, Lower Stoke, Near Rochester, Kent, ME3 9RD.

Promises of a real ale, real fire, roast spuds, maybe some Yorkshire puds and little not-sausage rolls, all fit for vegetarians.

Great acoustics thanks to the wood floor.

If I like you selected invitees may, in my discretion, receive squidge in my gaff over the road on termination. Squidge comes in variants. Basically there will be veggie (actually I mean Vegan for the real fanatics) stoo, a meat stoo and a hot pepper sauce to turn either the meat stoo or the Vegan stoo into dragon fuel - stand back and strike match (at either end). At least that is the plan. Remember I have a dog and my lodger has a cat, so allergenists may be discommoded.

You will then kindly please F orf to assist me to be unpleasant at work on Monday.

Right... have told the main Fab Club p.a. person that we won't be at Grays on that afternoon. (Len is assistant p.a. person). Anyway it's Jim Bainbridge, who we have booked for the previous Friday in Orpington. So you will have two leopards in attendance but no cub.

I should prefer it. I am becoming increasingly concerned about the Mudcat.

If you do:

1. Go to gmx and get a discardable email address.
2. Use a false name that only friends will recognise you by, possibly a reference from a song you are known for.
3. Do not put up a picture, or use one of a camel or something.
4. Max out all your privacy settings.
5. Accept "Friend" requests only from identities that you are sure are really the people they purport to be and whom you know and trust.

Dear Riyad Rover

You use a known email (or mudcat PM) to ask the user if the Fakebook ident is him her or it. Doh!

Or you wait until you meet the person (for example in the pool of the hotel Triton, Torremolinos, doing the breaststroke) and ask.

Or you message on Fakebook to ask for a detail that you hope only you and the "Friend"'s real identity knows.

Lots of ways.

Is Faceache really the most efficient way of disseminating information? I'm rather reluctant to waste time on the thing unless it's absolutely necessary; it sounds more trouble than it's worth. And I've got things to do, people to see and songs to sing, you know! :)

I'm not completely sure why you don't want to use Mudcat, Richard, though I have my suspicions! PM me if appropriate.

From: Richard Bridge - PM
Date: 05 Jan 10 - 06:58 PM

OK, after much blandishment, and Paddy and the landlord Peter both having bribed me with alcohol, and having taken due account of the risk of re-appearing on the 'cat, here is the eagerly awaited announcement of the Lower Coke (Upper Dogsbotham) winter sings, on the ground that no-one else appears to be doing anything competitive. Folkies do not compete, they co-exist. It is the music of the people.

Right. Here is the plan.

From opening time until closing time or earlier surrender to darts matches, darts competitions for the Sunday joint (meat, what else might I have meant?) foolsball on the square eyed God - usually till about 6-ish or 7-ish on the following Sundays: -

Jan 31
Feb 28
Mar 21.

Where? Oh, silly me! The Nag's Head, Lower Stoke, Near Rochester, Kent, ME3 9RD. It's in Hogarth's diaries doncher kno?

Promises of a real fire (maybe 2), roast spuds, maybe some Yorkshire puds, proper beer under gravity on the bar, and great acoustics thanks to the wood floor. NB if you have specific real beer requests for Kentish Beers or Beers of Kent, PM me URGENTLY as beer arrangements are likely to occur on Monday 11 Jan. Beer ties being what they are suggestions for non-Sheps beers will be treated confidentially, hint, hint.

If I like you selected invitees may, in my discretion, receive squidge in my gaff over the road on termination. Squidge comes in variants. Basically there will be veggie (actually I mean Vegan for the real fanatics) stoo, plus the adjuncts to vary it: there may be a pot of meat stuff to turn the meat into meat stoo, and a pot of very peppery and chilified stuff to turn either the meat stoo or the Vegan stoo into dragon fuel – stand back and strike match (at either end). At least that is the plan. Remember I have a dog and my lodger has a cat, so allergenists may be discommoded.

You will then kindly please F orf to assist me to be unpleasant at work on Monday.

Paddy is back in the village and may bring his banjo, so please encourage him. I propose to message Jeff, perhaps the best serial murderer on the clawhammer guitar in the county. I have just tonight met a traveller who may invite some of the local travelling families who remember the old songs to come (this is a long shot, I have been after one of the Rai to come and sing old songs for some time, to no avail – he prefers Elvis.)

All guarantees warranties and/or conditions and/or innominate terms, express or implied, whether statutory or otherwise, save as expressed above are hereby excluded. I accept no liability of any kind or nature whatsoever.

Any attendee by act or omission causing any actual or alleged damage or liability to me will on demand keep and hold me fully and effectually indemnified against any cost claim or liability of any nature whatsoever arising out of the event or their attendance.

I can keep exclusion clauses up for hours. All of them apply."

Having said that I think the confusion may come from last years lower stokes events.
It does not matter. Who cares so long has its happens. Pissed off re missing it last time due to thoughtless sister. Dont wanna miss this one.

I think its more of a concern that someone complained about flyers in the village.
Dead horse I love your humor. But having lived in a village for much of my married life I put the flyers issue down to the saying thats "It Takes all sorts.

I am glad to say that the fakebook group now has 18 members (some of whom have not got members, if you get my drift) but that is still not a full house.

So if there is anyone you know on Fakebook who ought to be a member please point them in the right direction. So to speak.

Maybe we should consider a summer folcecue with open mic this year - to give a certain MEMBER a chance to wear his mankini.

I am only mildly miffed with the parish council. And the reason is that I would have thought they might prefer nice quiet folkies in the Nags than rowdy pillocks. Ho hum.

Hoping for a good turnout on the 21st. Maybe we can have a straw poll about whether there should be one in April (maybe the 18th, does anyone know what else is on in April?) when we see what sort of turnout we have this time. I was a bit disappointed at the last one, and the barrel of beer seemed to linger on in the pub for ever. We have to do most of that barrel in if we want Peter to keep getting one specially for us.

The only time one should I think stop and start again is in the first few bars.

Pierre, I have had a look at the trains and there are no engineering works planned for either your line or the Dartford to Strood line on Sunday - you just need to change at Dartford and trains leave every half an hour.

Perhaps as there is a stout on (and it has recently been plastic paddies night) we should especially encourage Irish songs this month?

Bags I "Step it out Mary" before Brian does it to the chord sequence of "Tales from a raggy tramline".

I might do "The Thieves of Peckham Rye too, unless the Leopards come and do it.

Who can do "The sick note"?

Hmmm.... I've always considered stout an English drink. Didn't it originate in England?

Also, in my experience, the best stouts are English (despite Guinness's multi-million pound advertising campaigns and market flooding!). Compare a pint of Goacher's Stout with a pint of nitrogen-charged Guinness, for example. No competition!

I'm already licking my lips over tomorrow's offering! Chugalug, chugalug!

Absolutely not into stout. Hoping there will also be a bitter available, otherwise it's a mix of softs and coffee, which just might see me swinging from the light fittings.

You should be able to get a lift back easily enough, either with me later on or someone else earlier.

I came on here for another purpose. I popped in to the pub to check the wares for tomorrow, but the beer is not yet on. A propos it is designated and "Irish Stout" by the brewers. I do not think there will be another beer on the (newly refurbished) handpumps but there will be bottled Nun's Pleasure (Bishop's Finger) and Focke F*cker (Spitfire) as well as yellow and brown fizzy drinks under pressure.

Did I get a shock? Peter the Landlord and Nova (his Rubens-esque lady friend) have become affianced to each other and are leaving the pub.

Just as I get them trained they go and I have to start on a new lot!

So let's make it a good send-off for them.

The Hot sauce is being made later tonight with red Scotch bonnets.

Since I can't get to evening gigs at the moment, I try to squeeze in every second at the daytime ones.

I'll be flying around on the Sweeps weekend, between Medway, Maidstone and Farningham.

The hot sauce now needs to simmer for an hour before I cogitate sweetening and thickening. If I had a kitchen door I would close it since the kitchen atmosphere will be about as burning as mustard gas. Sweetening is tricky, since it involves tasting, and since one teaspoonful of hot sauce will turn a whole plateful of food into a vindaloo (give or take) tasting the sauce neat necessitates using extremely (er EXTREMELY) small quantities.

The plural of plectrum in English is plectrums when talking about guitar picks but plectra when talking about the mechanism of a harpsichord! Tortiseshell doesn't come from a tortoise, but a giant turtle and it's now banned in the UK unless made before the date when it was banned, whenever that was. Anyway whoever found my plectrum can keep it. I've been offered a job as drummer with a band called "Stone Dead Leopard" who are a tribute band for TDL and we do parodies of TDL songs! Only problem is I've lost one of my drumsticks ...

You need more than one for a TDL tribute?

If it is sufficiently brightly coloured, he will wear it, and bounce off walls and ceiling.

Morningwood, I will arrive back in UK on 15th and take a few days to adjust to the 4 hrs time difference. Will contact you as you suggest. You will enjoy Deal, they are a friendly lot.
Take your guitar and leave it in the car, that's what I did first time, then go sneak down and get it when you feel the urge.

Swing from chandeliers,?
Yeah thats right?
bring the bloody ceiling down?

Right Richard are we having a Nags session on the Sunday 18th April 2010 because I have a day off that day and I have heard rumor

I have also brought yet another Clip on tuner?
My 12 string stays in tune very well indeed despite old folk Legends that say 12 strings do not stay in tune and one is forever tuning them Nonsense.
but it wont stay in tune until Sweeps I fear.

This next tuner I will secure it to the headstock like a friend of mine has done and that will be the end of losing tuners.
When Richard reunites me with the one I left at his place I will do the same with that on the 6 string. I do not see why one has to keep taking clip on tuners
Off and on anyway might has well leave them where they are securely.
I think its a excellent Idea.
Regards Pierre

Shame I won't be able to make that date if it happens as I'm going to a weekend workshop in sunny Yorkshire with Stefan Grossman. I must say I am looking forward to it though.

Pierre, the headstock of a guitar is holy ground and should only carry the tuners, makers name, nut, dust and the odd fag burn from that Keith Richards moment. It's not to be cluttered with electronic tuners and capo's etc, it's against the law!! Although if you're at a session and happen to find a pick then it's quite acceptable to jam that between the strings at the headstock in the hope that the rightful owner will come forward and claim the pick. But that's another story...

Paul.

Unless the new landlord bribes me (and I don't know when or if he she or it will arrive) there will be no Lower Coke Winter Sing in April 2010.

A weekend workshop with Stefan Grossman! In Yorkshire! I'm from Yorkshire by the way, and you're nervous about taking yr Martin to Deal. Blimey. I'm nervous about playing now when you're in the room.

Al, it's in Pateley Bridge if you know it. It's a bit of a jaunt but I'm looking forward to it. I was going a few years ago but then fell off my bike and broke the thumb and index finger on one hand and the thumb on the other! After that didn't touch the much guitar for about 3 years, and the digits still aint right.

No need to feel nervous around me, it's a case of "all the gear and no idea" I'm afraid.

Paul.

ps Sorry for the fred drift.
