    Awesome, Pocket Billards rock. I'll be there with bells, and a few clothes, on.

    This sounds awesome! Axis Of are really cool live and so are Pocket Billiards.

    I will try my best to get down to this!

    It's also a good idea to donate platelets at your local platelet donation centre.

    [Which is, to all intents and purposes, the City Hospital]


    Two hours of lyin' on your arse, drinking tea and eating biccies. Watching the blood come out, then get pumped back in all clean an' platelet-free an' all.



    Quality.

    And registering to be a bone marrow donor helps a lot, too. I'm hoping to do that once I turn 18 - unfortunately I'm too little (stature wise) to donate blood or platelets, which is a bummer.

    On that note, I'm assuming this isn't all ages...if it were, that'd be awesome though. :D Always up for supporting a good cause.
  7. avatar himynameissween
    alas thanks to constant tattooing i can't donate blood...but happy to play/donate money for the cause!
  8. avatar loveisthelaw
    I'll try to get to this, good cause and good music. I've had a few friends that suffered this terrible disease and thankfully, they all surived and are living healthy and happy lifes

    If you canít get to this gig donate a few pounds, pennies, whatever you can to this or one of the many other excellent charities helping to fund research into this terrible illness. Without going into the boring statistics bit, big steps are being made into understanding and conquering Leukaemia but without funding this would not be possible.

    Best of luck to everyone involved with this excellent event, you are all very fine people!
  10. avatar exportsimsie
    Yes yes yes sweenie. Stop your moaning I might have been a bit pissed when I agreed to this one and maybe there's the smallest possibility that I forgot to tell you and jamie.

    Should be a great gig tho. Roll it on.
  11. avatar MarkNumskull
    This will be a brilliant gig, with an amazing lineup (esp Snitch! who iv heard are just utterly amazing talented young men) and its for a great cause too. We're gonna promote the hell outta this one so expect to have a poster slapped on your face and flyer inserted in any orifice shorty can get his greasey mit.
  12. avatar blacker
    sounds like this'll be a very good gig! on the other point, are there any restrictions on donating platelets or marrow & the like? i know that due to piercing/tattoos etc not everyone can always give blood (also been told if you have ever taken coke, though i'm not sure there's a lot of truth in that..). would happily donate almost anything if i thought it could help.

    on still another point (for those still with me..) are snitch! & radio blast worth going early for? haven't heard of them at all yet.
  13. avatar MarkNumskull
    Iv had a look into it and found this link, there doesnt seem to be any restrictions on marrow transplants, though im sure there must be some.

    http://www.blood.co.uk/pages/marrow_info_why.html

    With regards to Radio blast and Snitch, why not check out the myspaces - www.myspace.com/snitchband and www.myspace.com/radioblastpunk. I for one say yes they are definatly worth coming down early for as they are brilliant (though im in Snitch so you could call me biased).
  14. avatar himynameissween
    i'm not in snitch, and i can tell you that one of their singers, one david shortland, has herpes, the rest of the band are riddled with syphilis, and they all sleep with farm animals.

    (i am, however in radio blast.)

    :D

    You cant give blood here if you have done any intra-nasal drugs.Ever.
    At least that was the case 2 years ago.
  16. avatar danbastard
    If you have ever taken coke, EVER, you cannot give blood or sperm samples, breathe properly, operate as a respectable member of society, speak without dribbling or control your bladder.
  17. avatar Gogs
    You can, however, control other peoples' bladders using your mind.
  18. avatar daveshorty
    This is shaping up rather nicely!

    We're now gonna have a lovely one-off benefit compilation CD available only at this gig, "LEUKAEMIA SUCKS, BELFAST ROCKS!" with a track from each band playing, for £2!

    Plus free LEUKAEMIA SUCKS! guitar/wall/face/bum stickers for all!!

    Everyone sufficiently excited? Excellent.

  34. avatar daveshorty
    Thanks to everyone who came down! We raised a kickass amount and had a great night!!
  35. avatar himynameissween
    i'd like to extend my thanks to the fucker who apparently went into my gig bag and stole my guitar lead. if you want to borrow something, ask first.

    also thanks to the delightfully sensible person who set a pile of cymbals and a snare directly onto the head of my bass as it sat on the place where the equipment was.
  36. avatar exportsimsie
    fuckin right. This was a great gig. Cheers for everyone for coming down. Radio Blast had a class wee time and the bands and crowd were fantastic.

    Cheers Shorty.
