Worked at home most of the week. It has been cold all week, with very little precipitation. Friday was meant to be really stormy, but in the end did not affect us. Believe the west country was badly caught out, with many children having to stay at school for the night.
I started my course if vaccinations, in the belief i might be going to Saudi. Visited the nurse twice in the week, going there again next week.
The weekend we drove to Norwich, and stayed with my father and Ann. Went to Norwich to see a film (The persistant gardener), set in Kenya. Bit of a problem getting there, traffic was bad, missed the proposed start of the film, but it actually was not showing at that time. Went around the shops, got caught by shopping center evacuations, and long queues in the coffee shops. Back to the cinema to watch the film.
Today, went out for a drink with Mary and Ed. Afterwards I went to the Bongo Club. Some metal bands were playing. The Bongo Club is on Holyrood road. Walk down Cowgate towards the parliament. The road changes in to Holyrood, and on the left is the Bongo Club.
Reasonable venue, but rather cold, probably because there were only 30 or so there. I reckon I must have been the only paying person, all the rest were from the bands and hangers on.
Should have started at 9.00, but did not start till 10. Three bands played, ending at 12.30.
The bands in order were, Turbyne, Sweet Zombie Jesus and then Gutworm.
Turbyne, were young, but actually quite a good band. Think there were 5 in the line up.
Gutworm were the older band and definitely the best. Noise and metal at its best The other bands definitely looked up to them. They should be playing in Rushden on the 25th November and the White Swan in High Wycombe on December 3rd. Well worth a visit.
