Is that not a bit of a coincidence as on the night at the Drill Hall did Fish not say he had been to The Weatherspoon for a bite to eat and how awful the soup was! That will teach them to close a live music venue.


It wasn't the Ritz that Fish had eaten in, that would be the Forum, across the road from the Drill hall, however across the other road it the aforementioned Jolly Brewer :)
Spoons is ok if you want something cheap and very close to it's sell by date :(

Not sure which Wetherspoons he had been to, but it's a fair guess that it was The Forum which is a five second walk from The Drill Hall. The Wetherspoons, The Ritz I referred to is way South on The High Street.

That's right, rub it in why don't you.

In fact, why not give me a paper cut and pour lemon juice in the wound :lol:

I drove my bus past The Drill Hall a couple of times that evening though...... (And past The Forum too) 33219 (IIRC) for the bus spotters.

There must have been a fair few of you in the pub that night!

Just as a matter of interest, were any of you outside with pints when a bus pulled up, and the driver stuck his arm out and tried to grab a pint? That was me! :D

Well, if you are not capable of chewing steak, it could be liquidated into soup, so both count.

Wait! Wrong thread! :lol:

I bought Misplaced Childhood on a whim, because I liked the album cover (but had not heard of the band) when I was browsing albums in the record store, under the letter M. (I was actually looking at a Marilyn Manson CD - Marillion was just beside it - I remember being drawn instantly to the cover)

So the first song I heard was Pseudo Silk Kimono, which I loved instantly and really made me give the album my full attention. It was a wonderful discovery, I loved all of MC on first listen (for the most part) and Blind Curve became my favorite MC song. I stumbled upon them entirely by chance, so maybe it was just meant to be... I am really happy I did.
