The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
OK, I haven't had proper confirmation, so this may not be real, but...

If you're in Romford, Essex or can get there tonight, the Disaster are apparently playing a free entry gig as follows:

The Bitter End, 15 High Street, Romford

The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, The Gourami and The Flow

Over 18's only

So, there you go.

Weird, eh?

It's about time they employed me in some capacity really...

Halloween Gig! [Oct. 9th, 2006|02:29 pm]
The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
Yes folks, it's the gig that everyone who doesn't work and lives in Brighton has been waiting for!

Tuesday 31 October 2006, Halloween itself, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and the (truly) Vile Imbeciles are playing a gig at the Beach Club in Brighton. Doors I believe are around 8pm. Fancy dress, I understand, is also allowed.

So, there you go. yet again us hard working, been there since the very beginning Northern fans are shunned. So I quit. You heard me, I quit! My pimping days are over - after converting every single motherfucker I've ever met to the joys of the Disaster, and never once asking for anything in return other than that they keep making sweet love to my ears, it's over for me. I'm old now, I want rewards! REWARDS! So unless I get guest list passes and a mention in the new album you can kiss these puppies goodbye!***

PS - In other music news, your new favourite band CARPET (http://www.myspace.com/biffthetramp ) have a host of gigs for your pleasure as follows:

Monday 9 October 2006 - Menai, Bangor
Thursday 12 October 2006 - The Old Angel, Nottingham
Wednesday 25 October 2006 - The Hobgoblin, Brighton
Thursday 26 October 2006 - The Loaded Dog, London

So come along to one of those for some seriously good, in your face, fucked up rock and roll.


*** This may not actually be true, because I love them so much. *sigh*

Rumours [Sep. 2nd, 2006|03:46 pm]
The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
The Disaster are playing an ArtRocker gig [yes, London again!] soon, apparently... I'll keep you posted...

Apart from that, no other news dammit... and I'm still annoyed.....

PS - the Get Off The Internet Festival went ahead last week minus the Disaster [and with all bands playing for free!]. The mighty Carpet took their place at the top spot, and the roof was almost literally blown off. It was awesome. I'm working on a review, watch this space.....
