Evening all,just a quick update,we're playing
at The Casa,Brighouse on St. Patricks evening,it's £5 entry,including a supper,not sure what time we're on as
there are a couple of other things going on,Irish dancers,a comedian (besides us) and a duo,we're aiming to get there
for 7pm and take it from there,if times are confirmed in the mean time,we'll update the site.
Also,on Saturday 19th March,we're playing in Halifax
town centre at the Gun Dog (formerly the Sportsman),it's a fine real ale pub with regular band nights,so get your booties
down there :)
all,hope you're fine and sunny,we had two belting gigs in January,firstly,many thanks to the good folks at the Old Rishworthians
in Copley and beyond,who supported their fundraising evening,and made it a great night,hopefully it won't be another 7
years before we return there again (thanks for that stat Jeff!).
We also played at The Headrow pub in Leeds,which,after
a few sound issues early on, (new gear but same booze addled brains trying to work it!),turned into a good night,with special
mention to Paul,Diane,Sara,Haggis,Stevie D,Karen,Greg and Verity,who made the trip from Halifax to see us,and a special gold
star to Steve,our roadie/driver/all round nice chap for his patience in the face of such druffen shenanegins,vodka cocktails
and chilled white wine (and cheers for the van use Kev).The new year cobwebs are well and truly dusted off.
Anyways,just a quick update on forthcoming gigs,we've
left Feb floating,as we have quite a few coming up in March,and spring chickens we ain't (apart from Tim of course)...so
here are the March ones...

touch in a week or two,before the St. Patricks onslaught begins,and the 17th of March venue is confirmed,keep dancing,stay
kind and generous,and remember these words from the wonderful Tom Waits....we are monkeys with money and guns.

Happy New Year everyone,like the Death Star,the website will be fully functioning
again this week,with updated gig list,and anything ongoing in Celtsville.Many thanks to the lovely Stu for his hard work,both
behind the kit,and his upkeep of the site down the years.The marathon torch now passes to me,until I run out of things to
say,or there's a mutiny aboard ship.See y'all real soon,John....and may Lemmy and David Bowie forever keep shining
Hello everyone, we hope you're well. A lot of our information is now communicated from our Facebook page
so the website does get ignored to a degree, apologies for any people this cuts out of the loop. However you've missed
nothing thus far as we are only about to play our 1st gig of 2015 unbelievably!
We have St Patrick's weekend next weekend and all our gigs are now on the Calendar page for that period.
The abridged version of that is:
Sun 8th March - White Hart, Cloth Hall St Huddersfield
Fri 13th March - The Moorlands, Ogden - 9pm
Sat 14th March - The Crossroads, Wainstalls - 9pm
March - Halifax Irish Club - 2pm
Tues 17th March - The Casa, Brighouse - 9pm - £5 entry
That's all for now, we are going to be doing less gigs this year for one reason or another so please ensure you
grab as many opportunities to see us as you can. Next one after this run is in Mid April.
Goodbye friends S,G,J,N,J - (BotC)
