Summer of 69 isn't only a problem on the radio, but every single pub band in every single pub plays that fucking song! I used to like it, once up on a time, but not it requires an aweful lot of booze to get me to sing along to it, and afterwards I feel like I need a hot shower and a bar of Solvol to get clean again.
That was a bit off topic, I apologise.

No it's good to know the horror isn't confined to simply the airwaves. It's permeated pub rock band culture too. At least I don't hear it these days, may the horror be passed down a generation! :mrgreen:

Also Run to Paradise and Jesse's Girl get done to death by every pub band. Those are two Aussie classics that I can no longer listen to without cringing. It's funny that very few pub bands play Khe Sahn, because it's "cliched" but will play Summer of '69, Run to Paradise and Jese's Girl quite happily at a moments notice.

Looking forward to it.

I really, really am on the verge of a nervous breakdown at the moment to be frank. Does that excuse me for the time being?? I don't even have time to see my friends anymore. I'm going to go part time in second semester, and then I'll be able to start digitising them again, but at the moment I do not sleep at night because I have to study through the night and if I'm lucky collapse for a couple of hours in the middle of the day. I take painkillers all the time and last week I thought my cat had a form of cancer. You'll get what you want 13, just let me try and live the pitiful existence I have of a life trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my wasted life at the age of 35, and give me the time to get it done, so that I'm at least failing university because I'm an idiot, not because I have digitised episodes of Martin/Molloy. I can't work at the radio station anymore because I am too busy. I have no money if that helps too, I have to study to the point that I can't even work part time. At this rate you're either getting the M/M tapes digitised or a pine box with my corpse in it. Time will tell.

ARRRGGGGHHHHHH !!!!

Don't remind me of that song !!!

I'd almost had it erased form my memory - Well, replaced by the Irish equivilent - Galway Girl - Which is also played 2 or 3 times a night in every Irish Pub.

I got so sick of Jessies Girl that i eventually enforced a rule, that everytime a band (or DJ) played that song, i would leave the pub! - Not a very social rule, but very good for my mental health.

Quite often wouldn't finish my first drink before leaving.

I urge you all to consider this rule! It's very rewarding!

I can imagine it would save a good deal of cash too.
Did you walk out of Hot Tub Time Machine?

foolhardycousingeorge wrote:One of the things I remember from that live broadcast at Melbourne Town Hall is how often Mick and Tony told us (the audience) that they did not like most of the music that they had to play on Martin Molloy.

After the Scared Weird Little Guys had finished, Mick and Tony asked (enthusiastically), "what did you think of the Scared Weird Little Guys?", prompting us to applaud.

The audience response was maybe a little subdued.

Tony replied, 'Well, we can always play a Sophie B. Hawkins song again."
Here's some sizzle for you!

It's been a long time coming... but I'm just listening to the luke-warm reception The Scared Weird Little Guys received when the audience is asked if they want to hear another song by them. Should be up in a day or two.

Very, very strange to hear the show with a live audience!

Sorry to dredge up a long unused thread everyone, but I was wondering if the above mentioned photo was ever posted anywhere here? You see, I would be very interested to see it as there is a small chance that I may actually be in it - I was one of the audience members at the live show that was called up to do a comedy heckle on stage for Radio Gladiators during the broadcast. It's still my only brush with Tony, and if there was visual evidence of that in existence, man that'd be a treat.
I can't help with the photo, but the heckling is just about to begin!! :-D
