15 minutes to kill in Stalybridge, so over to the Fruit & veg shop, then as I walk up I look at the two choices for a brew, the stench of fags and tales of betting slips, Weatherspoons a place where people can buy a pint before 9.15am and drink till they drop, or the Malaysian cafe to the right of it. I opt for the latter. Its a nice place and the owner says hello, with eye contact an ever dying habbit, I sit down and I am faced with two papers, the Mails rant on how Robin Williams was Bankrupt blah blah blah, not really anything other than bile, negative, not worthy of anything other than a:you have Hamsters that need there bedding changing. B: You have run out of bogroll. For me Robin could play some classic roles like one hr photo booth, or he could be Mork, every act, artist, musician whatever you want to call it has there “Tin Machine” phaze, but he seemed seemed a genuine rare good soul, the world will be a little sadder for his loss. The alternative paper a red top seems to be stuck in a kind of episode of carry on Adolf where Hitler invades Butlins with twist, sex seem’s to be the order of the day, scandal from someone from a soap to someone with large eybrows, a pot belly and hairy hands, not to mention the men too. So I opted to look outside and view the streets. Stalybridge it was invaded around 2001 they came in coaches loads of fake tan and shaven sports wearers, its died down alot now and the woods starting to clear, sunlight coming though. Ok so the brews gone down well, time to get back onto it. Just a quick one before i go I’m playing a a gig this week, Friday bout 7:15pm start at the Bluebird cafe, Sowerby Bridge come along its gonna be a good en as I’m Guy Fawkes at the Mo..
