    I'm sure this will be mighty enjoyable,
    So I'll probably brave the dirt to witness some good bands,
    Give my fiver to Rog-"old man"-er,
    And have a laugh...

    If you have any "wares" you want to sell at this gig, please bring them along on the night or contact me in advance if possible
  7. avatar spaniel
    Is it only bands who are playing that can have stuff on the stall for sale or can I bring along some copies of my new CD?
  8. avatar Dirty Stevie Grizz
    I have an old pair of underpants i wouldnt mind selling on for the right price.

    One Previous Owner. Only slightly soiled...
  9. avatar Ronan Yakuza

    Sure, no problem I'll sell them if you want, I was only singling them out cos they're playing, and may impress people into spending money
  10. avatar spaniel
    I'll play the spoons, that should impress people into buying my CD.
    Any requests?

    Me 'n' Sims are just back from doing a poster run for Saturday's wretchfest, and all the ff posters are still present and correct. They look quite cool too. Town was deserted though. Everybody in having drinks with family 'n' all whilst we trudge around with bucket 'n' paste. Ah well, rock'n'roll never rests!

    Happy Xmas everybody!!!

    Unfortunately, Andy Clone has been struck down by the cold and cannae sing, so they're pulling out and the gap being filled at the last second by the Panda Kopanda homeboys.

    Oh no. I too was looking forward to seeing them.
  43. avatar Lap Dog Shuffle
    i'm very sorry that we had to pull out. andy's voice has been disappearing over the past week and attempts to re-arrange the set have driven us to total despair. we both agreed that it would have been impossible to pull anything good together for saturday ---. sorry

    Cheers Niall, ya throwback. Go pedal your medallions elsewhere!

    I feel really bad about cancelling, but I would lose my voice after one track and like Steven said, unfortunately we ain't got time to work round it.

    well our fastfude community turned out and warmed up the empire tonight!
    i thoroughly enjoyed my night despite the virus removing most of my voice and my boogie.
    i was sad to see the bouncers picking on our niall.

    you will not find that type of tyranny at giro's!

  57. avatar fastfude
    Ladies and gents, that was an unbelievable success.

    I cannot thank y'all enough for such an incredible turnout. Needless to say, FF now has the necessary fundage to cover server & ezboard costs for 2003!

    Wish I coulda mingled some more during the evening, but being on the door all night, I at least got to say thanks to everyone who walked in

    Massive thanks to all the acts: Dodgy Stereo, Panda Kopanda, Fallout, The Evangelists, Dirty Stevie, Iso9.

    Also massive thanks to the various helpers and organisers, not least: Shep, Dee & Deezer (and the rest of the Empire staff), EPK, the various meeja outlets that plugged the bejaysus out of the gig for us, and everyone else whose names I'm too drunk to recall right now!

    And while I'm all sentimental and the like, thank you people, one and all, for giving a damn about music in Northern Ireland enough to sustain a site like this. There wouldn't be a Fastfude if there wasn't a music scene for it to be a part of. Fair f*cks to you all.

    A job well done indeed. Top night all around. Before we went on stage we compared it to playing Galatassary away from home. We won 5-0.
  62. avatar nonlogic liam
    great nite dudes. God the empire was packed. Party after wards was good and I never got drunk and started to talk sh*it to random people, r wore sun glasses most of the nite or got sexually molested by a girl, or made buckfast outta washing machine liquid and diet coke.

    but then again
  63. avatar Eamonn Evangelists
    Oh, and thanks to all the people who bought stuff from the [url="http://www.thingsyouremissing.com"]THiNGS You're Missing[/url] stall. Our busiest night since it started in Belfast.

    I had fun in a fuelled-by-diet-symbols-of-western-freedom-and-therefore-in-a-caffeine-rush kinda way.And I spoke to lots of lovely people, some of whom I haven't seen for aaaaages, cause I'm a bit rubbish about being organised when I'm home.

    And I'm very upset that you refused to borrow my mittens Rog, specially since ten minutes later you had to ring eamonn for your gloves. Still though, I'm glad you made what you needed for this year, even if my mittens were superfluous to requirements!
  69. avatar EPK
    Well...waddya say.
    An excellento night all round. Great sets by everyone, many laughs and much drink. The support surprised us, as we weren't sure whether anyone'd turn up at all, but the atmosphere was class with so many people from the scene there. I'd like to echo Rog's sentiments and thanks for everyone who gave their time...for the bands and DJs especially who showed what a long way we've come with regards to quality acts in the past few years...and to Shep for giving us the opportunity to put it all on.
    Lots to be proud of, it FEELS like a community with so many people giving support and having a good time into the bargain.

    I was playing a gig in a Scout Hall in Kilcoole, co. Wicklow (I kid you not), otherwise I would have been there.

    I did, however, receive a number of garbled phone calls at 4 am, something along the lines of..

    'Ah, there's a party at the Ormo bakery, we're wrecking it, ah, Eamonn's lost his phone, aaaahhhhh'.

    So I went to bed.
  78. avatar Daithi jasper
    Very good night indeed. Enjoyed the Evangelists as usual, but the highlight for me was Anto doing some kind of drunken Ti Chi thing in front of Dirty Stevie. I'm not sure what that was all about. I was hiding (and laughing) in the top balcony at the time.
  79. avatar Ross Throes
    is that the ormo bakery on the boucher road?

    On a side note, the FF is F gig was rawktacular, the Stevie are easily some of the best musicians amonst out peers, Liam from the Evangelists can play guitar with seemingly dislocated arms, the falls are noisy b*stards and the pandas totally rocked out on that new song they finished on. A throughly enjoyable night for all.
  80. avatar richard belding
    No, Ross, the ormo bakery is on, surprisingly enough, the ormeau road. who would have thought?
  81. avatar Ross Throes
    actually colin, that would be the ormeau bakery.
  82. avatar Captain Anomie
    The party wasnt in a bakery, as far as I can remeber.

    And it definitley wasnt in an Ice cream shop Edited by: Captain Anomie at: 1/6/03 2:12:15 pm
  83. avatar richard belding
    what, you mean the one spelt 'ormo', which is beside morelli's ice cream shop on the ormeau road?
  84. avatar richard belding
    i'd love to go to a party in a bakery. t'would be brill.
  85. avatar Ross Throes
    of course.
    I'm sure there is more than one ormo bakery.
  86. avatar richard belding
    you're propably right. lets put aside our differences and start planning an actual party in a bakery.
  87. avatar richard belding
    Oh, and p.s., the gig on saturday was a lot of fun. it was nice to see such a good turn out.

    there. back on topic.
  88. avatar Wasp Boy
  89. avatar Niall Harden
    a party in a bakery followed by a pissup in a brewery?
  90. avatar Ross Throes
    then an orgy in a whorehouse?
    what a fun game
  91. avatar antojasper
    Yes I felt there was a disturbance in Yin energy caused by the overly swollen testicles of Dirty Stevie and their filthy rock music.

    Therefore I had to restore the balance by a series of ancient orthogonal body postures.

    pissedasana! :rollin

    also I am always annoyed by the presence of a half moon around the stage,
    "youse are all cunts!", to try and encourage some further participation.

    didn't work, can't think why.

    great night though, very much liked the Evangelists, for a number of reasons.

    Well done to all concerned for organising such a good night. All the bands put in polished performances but the Evangelists really pushed all the right buttons for me - what a front man (and what a backing band, indeed)! - he'd give Iggy Pop a run for his money all right, it was totally electric and perfectly insane and brilliant.
