Although off "Plastic Surgery Disasters" always takes me back to my school days. One of those bands I always feel I should've grown out of but never will ;)

Smell I lost interest after the first album and first few singles. Heard the second album and didn't like it. Too drunk to fuc* was the last thing of theirs I bought.

I never really gave Frankenchrist a chance, mainly due to nobody giving me a copy back in the day. I'm too middle-aged and boring now.

I doubt that very much smelly but to be honest am dreading middle age. My problem is I'm too sentimental. I know I'll end up going to this gig now I know it's on. The imperial cinema eh? Bloody hell. Saw loads of gigs there.

But i'm always wary of these kind of shows. Saw Misfits reunion without Danzig/Graves a few years back after waiting to see them for years. Twas the biggest letdown of a gig.

I always leave well alone now.

Reckon I have a decent mid-life crisis in me and maybe just enough hair left to shave a half decent mohawk in. Time to get the drums out the loft before Mrs Smelly comes home.

Plenty over the years, nothing you would have heard of.

Started drumming when I was 9 or 10. had to stop in my mid twenties due to a drunken accident and almost losing my hand. Not played since, but miss it like mad.

Yeah I really want to try my hand at something else like guitar or bass, but it's so hard to learn once you're older. I don't have room for my drums where i'm living at the moment, plus i've got new neighbours and i'd like to keep them sweet for at least a few months.

You can pretty much nail bass in an evening. What size drum kit is it?

4 shells, probably 6 cymbals. relatively small. I think if the urge gets to me i'll get an hour or two down at the new rich bitch studio in cotteridge. Got a couple of friends rehearsing down there at the moment.

Yep, saw 'em in Camden about 10 years back sans Jello.

Not saying he wasn't missed, but it was a cracking gig nonetheless.

Hilariously there was a one-man protest outside, some bloke saying "No Jello - No DKs" and berating people for attending.

Five minutes into the gig, bloke comes in and watches them. About ten people are like, "What the feck are you doing here then?"

"Research purposes", said the prick, without a hint of irony.

Go, they'll be fun.
