Going Up The Country

Posted on June 12th, 2016 by tonieee

I’ve had a fantastic time at Going Up The Country this weekend. So many great bands and lots of lovely friends. Even the massive around of rain didn’t dampen the fun. Plus I got to do some proper dancing for the first time since I broke my leg. Here are some photos:

Oh Peas!

Posted on October 29th, 2014 by tonieee

The other day I accidentally cyber-stalked Marianthi when bandcamp sent me an email saying that she’d just bought some records by Oh Peas! (I’m a really big fan of bandcamp but I’m not keen on it being social-networkized – I just want it to be a place to buy records). I really liked the name […]

The Salle Pierre Lamy Indietracks 2012 Special

Posted on August 9th, 2012 by tonieee

Velodrome 2000 played at indietracks this year and afterwards we were interviewed by a puppet cat called edgar and a puppet… errr… something else called Bryce. They got us drunk and we had an ace time. Here’s a video of the interview which also features interviews with some of the other fantastic bands who played. […]

I didn’t take many pictures at indietracks this year here are the ones I did take. Markie Plays Girlpop on the train. Dan Pocketbooks sat on Markie’s shoulder’s, showing his nipples to The Vaselines. And the Midland Railway bar staff waving their arms to Stay Another Day by East 17 at the end of the […]

Rik Beckman!

Posted on June 17th, 2012 by tonieee

Tonight, at Velodrome 2000 practise, Chris brought along the Overlord Of Fermentation himself: Rik Beckman – inspiration for the song of the same name.

The Mary Chain!

Posted on June 7th, 2012 by tonieee

I’ve finally got round to watching the DVD that came with the reissue of Psychocandy. Fantastic trip down memory lane. I spent many evenings in my early twenties watching these videos with the people I shared a house with at the time and the Old Grey Whistle Test and Tube versions of the songs are […]

Banjo Party Time!

Posted on May 6th, 2012 by tonieee

We’re having a Banjo Party Time in our house as provided by the Geoff Love Banjos. I got this from a charity shop about 15 years ago because the cover is so ace! I haven’t listened to it in a long, long time and finally got round to digging it out from the pile of […]
