"The worst idea in a long, proud history of bad ideas"

Eamonn, bless his cotton socks, volunteered us for a slot performing at Murphy's bog-standard Irish bar on the 14th.

My initial reaction was one of horror. This was followed by curiosity, followed by horror again, then stabilised itself as morbid curiosity.

Here's the blurb from our facebook flier:

Ever been to a Murphy's gig and gone away thinking "I could have done a better job"?

Eamonn did after the last one; you may very well do after the next one.

Like a latter-day Simon and Garfunkel, we're going to be arguing the toss about musical differences and experimenting with facial hair.

We'll also be playing a rock-solid set, packed with classy tunes, and providing some top-quality banter.

Hope to see you there!

Mick advised us to aim for about 15 songs, which we may actually just about be able to manage. Band practice has brought us closer than ever and provided some wonderful insights:

ME: Did you know that if you shake your hand, hundreds of thousands of bacteria fly off?

Shake hand at his face to demonstrate. He is unfazed.

HE: Yeah, well- did you know that if you keep your toothbrush in the same room as your toilet, you eat a lump of shit every year?

ME: Do you keep your toothbrush in the same room as your toilet?

HE: I do now.
