    The 4 Skins - The Adelphi
    Who has time? Who has time? But then if we do not ever take time, how can we ever have time?

      Only ever saw them when Paul Di'Annio was the singer who once gave me a black eye when pissed as he tripped over my foot. We went up to him and got him to apologise and he bought a round of drinks for us in the end. I remember that he bonked this bird I knew once and promptly fell asleep and she was extremely annoyed so she poured lighter fluid over his gonads and set them alight. Dave Murray used to live down my road and we used to go watch them practise in the local village halls.

        Saw them in South London with the Ovalteenies as support and a race riot promptly happened. Remember when they played at the YMCA in Chelmsford and 2 opposing factions of skinheads turned up. I ended up hiding under a tbale on the stage while numerous missiles flew around. Happy days

          Ozzy at the appollo in Manchester on his Ultimate Sin tour, supported by Ratt - probably 1985 or 86. A bit later on we went to see my worst ever concert (including the Tweenies I took my son to when he was little) Saxon, supported by Loudness (or Roudness as they kept shouting). Saxon looked like a bunch of tramps that found all their stage stuf in a skip and Roudness were just rubbish. Ahh Manchesta yow are all cwazy mutha f***erz etc. To be honest if any of us knew one of the songs that either band played it might have helped
          Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

          I preferred version 1!

                Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
