    Aye. The 'Lemon' V Necks are doin a one off gig with Seamie McAndreasa on drums (spelling wrong I'm sure) who had a live spell with them a fair while ago before Marty from Arcane was in them but he was well good as I recall from me old live tapes in Kelly Cellars.
    Gavy and Jimmy Sadler on too of course. Dunno about bass yet but Gavy has assured me they're definately playing and tickets are bein printed up and should be ready next wed.
    Should be a cracker.

    Marty A is indeed one of the best drummers I've heard, great cause and great lineup. Is this tickets only or can you pay at the door?
  15. avatar basileh
    If it don't sell out you could pay at the door alright.
  16. avatar Chi-Lite
    So the V Necks are definitely doing it then?

    The rumours are flying, will they, wont they....

    I remember Seamie on Drums. Suited the V Necks style better than Marty Ellie, if you ask me.

    But then I always preferred it when Smit was still there.
  17. avatar basileh
    Yeah Seamie was more their wavelength.

    They are definatelty doing the gig but I'm not 100% on the lineup.
  18. avatar Arcane
    The V necks line up ended up as: Aidan and Marty from Arcane,
    Gav,Kev and Sadler when he felt like it. Anyone else were
    part timers.Except for Smit he just left.

    That Sadlier one is a git. Afraid he's past rockin d'ya think Aidan? I think he was worried it was getting Heavy Metal on him. :lol:
  20. avatar Arcane
    Te He He, Ya might be right there like but I've always loved Sadlier's guitar!!
    When I was young visiting our Kevs I thought he was a f**king
    legend on the the old 6 string!
    I hope we can all play!!
  21. avatar basileh

  22. avatar Chi-Lite
    Unfortunately Geno Washington is also playing tomorrow, but I'll try and get round in time for the V Necks.


    Although last I heard Sadlier wasn't doing it.

    But he probably will.

    This was a great night. All the bands were fucking fantastic and I wish I had of been able to just rock out and get blootered but I did my best.
    Sorry about my disasterous raffle presentation. Can't believe my sis came up and picked her own no for the first prize. Then the raffle bucket got knocked over an all. But sure it eventually got sorted and I reckon everyone who came had a good time.
    Thanks tremendously to all the bands, Underline, Throat Locust also for the cd for the raffle and Dave, Chris Angry Host bro for the bass amp, Marty and Aidan from Arcane for running down from the Pavillion gig for what I believe to be one of the best V-Neck gigs. Ian did a great job on the sound and time and as much as I hear shit about bouncers they were dead on this night.
    Cheers to the Falls Community Council for printing up the tickets and all those who gave a donation for the raffle.
    Also cheers to the staff and pupils of Meanscoil Feirste, Beal Feirste for the collection of £122.
    We made just over £700 so I believe it was a success considerin the place wasn't packed and maybe it should be done again.
    Thanks again to everyone who made it.
