Finally all our ducks are in a row, and we have a show booked with that lovely man Mr. Dec Burke for a limbering up before the festival on Sunday. Prices, times etc. as we have them...

I could make all sorts of comments (Swindon's in the next county - cross border rivalry etc).
At least the 12 Bar is actually in Swindon.
Not like Riffs, which is often described as Swindon, only for people to discover it's out in the country away from almost anything else.

I just tried to extend my B&B stay in Kingston to include the Friday night - thus making it practical to get to both Swindon and Celebr8. Their only remaining room was a Superior Double at superior prices. Apparently I can blame this on a flower show.
So at the moment I think I might live the high life at the M4 - Newbury Junction Travelodge[1].

Cheers

Well, now, look. I spoke to Kerry Chicione on the phone yesterday (sorry  8) ), and he's well keen to come to this and meet up with you guiys again. Thought you'd like to know.

I've tried to book a hiotel but there must be something on that night as the hotels are full.

When I say something on, I mean something other than Tinyfish and Dec playing, of course  ;D ;D

Righto, well given the revelations from Simon, this has now turned from a "would like to" into a "have to", so if the offer of a small corner to crash on the Friday night is still open from RobH,  then I would love to take you up on that.

Is anyone (RobH or otherwise) driving to the Saturday of Celebr8 from the Wokingham/Reading area? Otherwise I will get the necessary rail tickets sharpish.

_probably_

I've not booked it yet and Tracy hasn't decided to commit herself to seeing either show (which would change travel plans a bit) but the current plan is Friday night in the Newbury Travelodge so I would be driving past Reading on the Saturday mid-morning.

I'm not sure what excites me more about that weekend. The Swindon part, the Travellodge-by-the-M4 part, the multiple chances of getting lost part, the vast crowds crushing everyone in the Kingston Hippodrome part or even the possibility that Simon might end what may very well be the very last Tinyfish show ever with an Anne Robinson quote part.

Who has worked out a sensible place to park for Friday night? My internet-foo is failing me and I can't find a place nearby to leave the car.

In other news. Is there any pre-show meet 'n' eat or meet 'n' drink shenanigans going on?

Car Parking there is really bad.  Unless you're Neil Palfreyman who knows the right places.  There is a public car park about 10 minutes' walk - Brunel West.  And I've never paid to park there yet.

Sometimes you will be lucky and find a spot around the nearby side roads. Try that first, if not head towards the town centre and park, as Rob said, in the Brunel west car park. It's quite close. There is a curry house nearly opposite and a nice Italian up Westcott Place a bit. Town centre has loads of eating establishments.

According to Facebook half of Dec's band (Pat and Hywel) are stuck in traffic and unable to get to the gig  :(  

...correction; looks like it's Dec and Pat stuck in traffic but having to pull out of the support slot.  :(

Leon was presented with two things, and they got somewhat different reactions.

The place had a party feel to it.  A sort of party where where Tinyfish got up on stage, did a very long set, and then continued for a while afterwards.  That was an extremely fun evening.

That was brilliant fun, and I suspect will be 'the final gig' in my mind.  It had a typically wonderful Tinyfish feel to it, plus Grendel.

Being announced from the stage as we walked in after our hour and a half journey turned into 3 hours, and then we walked 20 minutes in the rain- THAT was worth all the effort.

All Hands Lost was just the icing on the cake.

We had a fantastic time last night. It was a shame that Dec's band couldn't make it to the stage propper like but we did have three of the guys who hung out with us all for the vast majority of the show so we thank them for their support. Cheers chaps.

The set was enormously good fun to play and the extra time we had gave us the opportunity to play some of the material that we don't often do. Playing All Hands Lost was not a planned thing at all as the occasional duff chord changes prove but the crowd were both well up for the show and ever-so accommodating of the improvisational aspect of the set list.

All of us on stage had incredible fun and it was very much the chatty and loose Tinyfish of old from the early Peel days. Nice to re-visit that vibe one last time.  :D

Sunday's set is going to be just as much fun I suspect although we won't get the chance to arse around anywhere near as much but we will be giving it absolutely everything we can for you. I suspect I won't have much of a voice left by this time tomorrow.  ;D

Thanks to all who wandered down. It was just like old times.  8)

In true "Ben goe to see Tinyfish" style i got lost on the way to the venue but got there with plenty of time before the gig. ;)
Wonderful night & great to meet so many forum members.
Finally got to put faces to names 8)
The gig itself was something else. 2nd time seeing the band & once again i had a ball.
Great chatting to the guys afterwards,especially Jim & then it was back to my hotel before heading to London on saturday morning for some other gig :)

Please don't encourage him. It's like laughing at a naughty child. We're trying our best to calm him down, keep him away from the cheap orange squash and get him to use his potty properly without throwing poo around. Your laughing doesn't help us persuade him that using swear words, shouting really loudly and generally being rude to the people who have paid to see us don't necessarily make something funny.

We thank you  ;)

Love it James. It sums up the evening very nicely.  :)

My one enduring memory of playing All Hands Lost that night was the line 'Useless...left in storage' right after we honked our way through the first chorus. It sucked in places but all of us really enjoyed playing it one last time.
