I do believe that she has just shrunk Mick to the size of an action man and he is just running past my stage monitor to get his revenge, That is why I am looking down.

bruce, make arrangement to have me beamed up to where mick is...any connection problems contact "scotty", any problems with that, derek will vouche for me. don't devaulge my name to that mystery woman.

1:39 pm  
Blogger Bruce said...

I think the mystery woman's code name is bogbrush heid. She is on a lone mission to beam up as many Good Men as she can. She is from the Planet Janet and not to be taken lightly. Proceed with caution.

Unfortunately I was only a foetus at the time, but I was lucky enough to have Dave Gilmour to play an amazing solo on one of my songs on the second Propaganda album. The song is ' Only One Word ' from the 1234 album. I also partied with Dave at my friend Kirsty MacColl's birthday in London, in the late eighties.

Hi Girls

Hope the gig was good

Consider them spilt.. Spearbabe and I were among others up in Edinburgh to see Derek's old combo play at the T In The Fringe. We caught up with several friends who have had the joy of seeing 4GM play over recent months, and all who mentioned you were recommending you to others.. The gig was good, but to be honest, the setlist was a bit predictable. They didn't play anything from the early days.. I think the oldest stuff they played was from NGD but I could be wrong..

5:10 pm  
Blogger Derek Forbes said...

Great stuff. Spread the word at every opportunity. Jim was asking Brian McGee about us, and of course, Brian gave him a very favourable report. I'm sure Jim knows that we are not trying to be Simple Minds, but we can't change who we are. The new songs are killer, so we hope you'll all be loving them as much as thwe old songs. Avanti Derek

Hi Derek (and everyone else) I have been logging in to see what has been happening and it all sounds good. I was going to surprise you, but i may as well let you know now, that I'll be back in Glasgow this time next week and hope to see the band live.
You all need to take the blame for making me homesick ha ha, regards Duncan.
