Nanker, You haven't posted any Specials flyers for a while. Where's your pre gig show for the Ally Pally gig? Laughing

It's in Brixton.

..and Brighton

.....and Nottingham.

We didn't need to do an Ally Pally one in the end, because someone else finally got off their arse and offered up a much bigger and better one.

Why, where's yours?

If it makes you feel better.

Truth be told, we tried to secure the same venue that the official party has and were told it was already booked by the Band's management, so it was no big surprise when something else was announced.

The only effort I'd put in was designing a flyer and posting it up here and on Facebook.

TTN and others had done a lot more work, including securing bands and a Special Guest DJ, and had pretty much secured another venue, ready to go live should nothing be announced for the fans (our initial concern was the Management were planning a corperate hospitality affair).

None of us lost anything in the end aside from some time and effort and we're still going to a pre-show without doing the work that goes with it.

I'm happy with Brixton, it's home, we put nights on there every month, it's not hard work and we're doing something for free for people to come along and enjoy. Same as those in Nottingham, Brighton and Cardiff who have asked me to design flyers for them.

If you get pleasure out of seeing people's efforts wasted, then good for you, gigle away. Be happy to meet you some time and then you can laugh in my face.

Thanks for posting that Nanks, I think it needed saying - you are one amazing bloke, I have so much respect for you it's beyond words.

I see no sign of your cream going sour, in fact from what I see each project you do surpasses the previous one

The stuff we have worked on together has been praised by people far & wide - I for one am proud to have worked with you.

The stuff you are doing with Liam, Boy About Town & Vince With the Time Tunnel is awe inspiring and a great night out too.

Keep doing what you are mate, you are 100% on the right track

Cheers Tom.

Robbo's decided to become my new pet troll.

He follows me everywhere I go on this forum now like a loyal little puppy.

I might grow to love him, should he persist.

Can't wait for tomorrow's amazing and mind expanding posts. Dunno if I'm gonna be able to sleep tonight, now.

We have always had the fans in mind.ALWAYS.people.were warned we had stuff planned when they went off and decided what they wanted to do. you take yer chances.it wasnt a case of getting off your fuckin arse, it took ages to put together.different when people are wanting pre sale tickets or other favours, makes my blood boil. If people are feeling so fuckin aggrieved then don't come. Sick of hearing bitching and moaning.this is a site to celebrate one of the greatest bands ever and it's always dragged into the fucking mire. Twisted Evil

None of what I posted was aimed negatively at you or the event you are putting on. 'getting of their arse' was a turn of phrase, not a put down. I meant it as having the get up and go to do something 'bigger and better' which was a term I used also, which you seemed to have missed.

I was simply stating my position within a wider group of people all planning and trying to put things together. My role was fairly limited and my personal input pretty small compared to others who had set about arranging 'stuff' outside of my simply designing a flyer.

.....and like I said people were told that we were planning something. To then fuck off and plan something regardless without seeing what we were doing , well, there you have it, then to come on here and go on about it defies logic I missed no point and I for one don't give as fuck about bigger or better all I ever wanted was one fuckin big final bash for the forum.we have worked extremely fuckin hard, it's dominated stuff for a very long time and to pull this off had ben a real coup. Stupid me thinking we could all rejoice in something special, ...any more crap and it will go in the fuckin bin.

It is a real coup and I'm really looking forward to it.

At the end of the day I was responding to Robbo who's intention was to stir shit up. I stupidly fell right into that one!

There's no disrespect here for your efforts and hard work....and I for one was one of the first to comment positively on your original thread when you announced it.

As I say, I'm looking forward to a top day at Ally Pally.
