I will be doin' some sort of
synopsis of the USA 'experience' when I get a chance, but to be honest
it still ain't sunk in yet after nearly 2 weeks back. We 'ad a couple
of days 'ome and then straight orf to Belgium and 'Olland....blimey!!!!
Needless to say, there a bundles of stories to share about our U.S
jaunt...so many I'll probably end up doin' a whole new website on
it. There are also loads of photos doin' the rounds that I 'ave to
collate and sort out and I've also got to do summink wiv the website
cos it's gettin' a bit chuffin' big for poor old Geocities....I'll
'ave to get Deggerz on board for that one I fink.
One fing I must say at this
stage tho', is CHEERS GAWD BLESS YER to everyone who made our trip
as smooth runnin' and as enjoyable as it was....you're all diamonds...nice
Catch up soon
Well, bugger me if it ain't
the day before we go to the States. It's all come round a bit sharpish
this...we just can't wait to get over there. I've worked me bleedin'
plums orf sortin' it all out and I'm just too tired to organise anyfink
else. Bring it on.....9 gigs...all sorted...and plenty of beer and
good times to be had along the way. Annuver massive 'CHEERS GAWD BLESS
YER' to all those involved...we're lookin' forward to sortin' yers
out wiv a beer or two. See you all in the U.S.A.
Saturday's gig at The 12 Bar
Club was a cracker. We had a good (albeit a bit lively !!) crowd.....fanx
to those who came over from the Dropkicks shows and it was good to
see Mr Kelly in our audience an hour after we'd been in his. Well
done to ACACIA AVENUE for comin'
down and playin' wiv us again and nice one to James for steppin' in
for Chipshop at soundcheck...good job 'e didn't have to fill Chippy's
shoes all night....25 pints of Guinness and 3 kebabs might 'ave bin
the undoin' of the poor lad!!!!
We reahearsed last night for
the last time before over the pond we go, and I ain't bein' funny,
but we we're playin' better than we've ever done...we appear to 'ave
peaked at the right time....(bout time you all say...ha ha ha)
Ere's a flyer for the last ever
gig at De Kastelein...see you all there.
Well, we'll see you all on our
travels over the comin' weeks...come up and say 'ello and shove beer
and pies into our grubby 'ands.....good times, friends....
Oh well, ....the busiest month
in the short history of Superyob has just begun......practice Thursday...gig
Saturday...which will be a bleedin' blinder by the way!!!! one more
practice and then orf to the jolly old U.S of A. Back 2 days and then
orf to Europe for 3 days. It's bin so long in 'appenin' I can 'ardly
believe it's almost upon us.....I'm lookin' forward to the relief
of gettin' on that plane and relaxin' knowin' I can't do nuffink more...whatever
'appens then bloody well 'appens and that's it!!! We've managed to
get a merch girl/roadie along for our Boston MA weekend. My mate Kerry
is comin' over to 'elp us out and 'ave a bit of a jolly.....she's
also volunteered to carry 'eavy stuff and assist wiv merch sales (under
the steely gaze of Frankie 'Pursestrings' Flame of course ha ha!!!!)
Ere's the USA Tour flyer wot
I've sent out.....pretty ain't we?
For those of you in the U.K
you'd better get yer arses down to the 12
BAR CLUB in Denmark Street in London this Saturday
for our send orf gig. It's down as the after show knees up for THE
DROPKICK MURPHY'S show at The Astoria and features our
old muckers ACACIA
AVENUE and we've bin promised a cheeky little mini-set
from the marvellous VIVA LAS VEGAS
too. It's gonna be bleedin' rammo Barnet reckons so if you're comin'
from The Astoria show get your bums down there pronto. We're lookin'
forward to seein' a few old faces and friends there...there's a Belgian
fraternity over apparently, and expect a couple of the DROPKICKS to
pop in for a Guinness or two and to see how we're gonna blast 'em
orf stage in Boston a week later.
Our missin' CDs we sent to Boston
'ave turned up now, which is good news.
Saw Chipshop performin' wiv
at the weekend down in Kent...that boy don't arf get about don't 'e?
Good show it was too...plenty of beer flowin' and I missed out on
a ruby wiv Herve and Jimmy cos I fell asleep on the way 'ome....Jimmy
was apparently payin' an all!!!!
Well, we 'ope to sees as many
of you as we can over the next few weeks in England, Belgium, Scotland,
Holland and U.S.A. (We might even sneak across to Canado too, to see
Well, we got the confirmation
we was waitin' on for our final U.S gig. March 20th is Newark, Delaware.
Well done to Dusty for sortin' that one out for us.Check the GIGS
page to see the full U.S schedule. We're still open to offers for
the 15th mind. A fuckin' great 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yer' to all those
who've been involved in assistin' me in settin' this up. We can't
wait to get over and share a beer with you all. Nice one.
If you can't make it to America
then we'd recommend headin' over to De Kastelein in Bruges on March
13th to see our old mates RESISTANCE
77 playin' wiv HEADCASE.
Remember you won't be gettin' many more chances to see quality Street
Rock and Roll at De Kastelein...our gig there on March 27th will be
Well, we've 'ad verbal confirmation
of a U.S show for March 20th kids.....likely to be in Newark, Delaware.
Just waitin' for Dusty to hit me wiv bang on details and I'll whack
it up on the GIGS page. That'll
just leave Monday 15th of March....bit of a quiet night so might be
a kip day....still open to offers though.
We've 'ad confirmation of the
venue for our April 23rd gig in Dundee with ON
FILE and VAS DEFERENS.
It's at the well hip soundin' BEAT BAR.
More details when I get 'em. Also bin talkin' to Banjo about the gig
in Stockport. He's confirmed the venue as THE
THATCHED HOUSE for April 25th. Support etc as and when.
Spoke to Lee M tonight and we're still waitin' to 'ear about a possible
bash in Leeds on April 22nd too. Remember SUPERYOB,
ON FILE and the VAS
DEFERENS are playin' the Punk & Oi! all dayer in Hartlepool
on April 24th too.
Saw Chipshop play with VIVA
LAS VEGAS on Saturday and they were...erm...well...erm..entertainin'.
Chippy was pissed as a bleedin' parrot before they went on, though
Barnet does carry the Elvis bit orf pretty well. Apparently Chippy
made it back to Acton just in time to miss SECTION
5 leavin' after their gig at the KING'S
show by all accounts....Chippy kept Sheffield Dave up til 8.30 a.m
on the old hit and miss and was the most pissed many people 'ad ever
seen 'im apparently....nice one!!!!
Just a quick update wiv this
tip top flyer which JJ sent me for the US gig at Connections in New
More as I get 'em.......
One other bit of news. Now,
we all know that Chipshop likes to dabble in whatever band will stand
him the price of a Guinness to play their songs badly, but he seems
to have got 'is not inconsiderably sized arse in gear with 'is latest
project wiv Barnet Mark. VIVA LAS VEGAS
they're called and they also apparently feature ex-members of The
Warriors and King Kurt.
They're playin' wiv our old muckers The Death
Valley Surfers at The Verge in Camden Town this Saturday
21st February from about 8.30. Come along and rip the piss out of
Chipshop as 'e crucifies a few Elvis songs.
Couple of bits and pieces for
yers. Good news for our mucker JJ from DEAD
HEROS NJ...'is potential incarceration 'as bin postponed
for 6 weeks so we still get to play 2 shows wiv the boys. Good eh?
The line up for the show in
Manchester NH on March 19th 'as bin finalised. Nice one to Marianne
for 'er 'elp wiv that. I'm 'opin' to hear about a show for Saturday
March 20th within the next couple of days, and that'll probably do
us I reckon. Got 2 irons in the fire for that one.....Delaware or
This would leave us just one
outstandin' date for March 15th. Now, as it's a Monday there probably
ain't much 'appenin' but we ain't ruled it out yet. If nuffink comes
orf we'll use it as a rest day for our bladders after a weekend on
the piss in Boston....we'll probably need it!!!!
We've 'ad our first bit of radio
airplay in the States too...follow this link to the best punk rock
radio show in New Jersey. YOB
ON THE WIRELESS. Pat Duncan 'as bin on the punk rock
ball for years and we're 'opin' to see 'im at the NJ show on March
21st. Check out 'is shows for January 29th and February 12th. All
'is shows are recorded for posterity an' it's a top way of findin'
out a bit about the US punk scene. Treat yerself. We was gonna go
on 'is show and do a live session but we picked the only 2 weeks in
the year that the studios are in use for the stations annual fundrasing
concerts..just our bleedin' luck eh?
Our mates Acacia
Avenue 'ave done a couple of new songs. Check out their
website for a listen.They'll be supportin' us at our DROPKICK
MURPHY'S aftershow gig at the 12 Bar Club in London
on March 6th.
We booked our ferry ticket for
Belgium/Holland so that's all up and runnin' nicely. ...I've just
got to chase up what the bill is at the gig in Holland. HEADCASE
'ave been touted as support for the gig at DE
KASTELEIN, but that ain't confirmed yet.
More news in the next couple
Well, a bit of good news always
warms the bleedin' cockles dunnit? Two more gigs confrmed in the States:-
Buffalo NY and Manchester NH. See the GIGS
page for details. Big 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yers' to Marianne (she's
a flamin' diamond that girl), Ethan and Jeremy for their work on those.
We've still got 2 dates left to fill, but I should know a bit more
by the end of the week.....still a few irons in the fire yet, stand
Yob CDs have made it safe and
sound to Mr Kelly's house in Boston and I'm also gonna finally sort
out the T-Shirts this week too. I've bin 'avin' a bit of ding song
battle gettin' some tarnsport sorted out for when we're over there
but I fink I'm on the ball now....It's a bit bleedin' expensive 'irin'
a mini van (people carrier) for 10 days so we've 'ad to do a bit of
a re-shuffle and maybe go for good old public transort for one show
(or try and bum a lift !!) or otherwise end up on Shanks' Pony....rock
and roll eh?
HEROS NJ 'ave rendered 'emselves unavailable for the
shows they were gonna do wiv us cos unfortunately singer JJ 'as been
politely requested to spend a little bit of time doin' some porridge.
We wish 'im good luck and hope he gets back in the crease soon.
Other good news is that the
show at DE
KASTELEIN 'as bin confirmed for March 27th. Suck and
Rianne came through for us after a bit of confusion by THE
LAST RESORT possibly booking a show there. It's tinged
wiv sadness though cos they've announced
that this is the last live show they're gonna do there....now bearin'
in mind what an institution the place is our first time playin' there
is gonna be our last......that's a bit of an unwanted honour to 'ave
to say the least. We're all 'opin' for a good turn out to see them
orf in style.
Jani in Finland 'as promised
me a copy of the video they did there of or gig last year....should
make interestin' viewin I reckon...might see if any is good enough
quality to put up on the website.
Right, I'm chuffin' knacked...I'm
orf to me pit. Night night....
Just a very quick one 'ere.
I'm 'opin' tonight to hear of a couple of extra dates to the U.S tour.
I'll put 'em up as and when. They've bin delayed from Sunday so 'opefully
it's good news.
Met up wiv ON
FILE on Monday on their way back from a champion do in
Finland (Jani was well pissed again apparently!!!) and they've taken
the bleedin' sauna record!!!!!. Apparently all 5 got in the pretend
one at Jani's 'ouse...but not for very long by all accounts...and
not only that Steph fell over and knocked 'imself out and Hedgy went
arse over tit and knackered his back...ha ha ha
Also met up on Saturday wiv
Herve and Liz from DEADLINE for
a few beers and a ruby. They're orf to the U.S.A in April after us
so I 'ad to promise 'em that Chipshop would leave 'em some beer. Yeah
Finally...yes, finally... I've
updated the bleedin' PHOTOS
page wiv bundles of snaps collected from gigs and what have yer towards
the end of 2003. Fanx to all those who donated pics. I've bin promised
some more of the Norway show from Lee of Deadline and also from Bjorn
E, who 'as also sent me some video clips of the gig. Now, I'll try
and whack a bit of that up when I get 'old of clever bugger Degz who
does all the smart bits on this 'ere website.
Next fings to update are the
page to make it a bit more user friendly. We've set up a PAYPAL
account now which should 'elp a bit wiv overseas orders, so I wanna
get that set up on the MERCH page. I've also got loads of new stuff
from Ace for 'is SOUNDS
OF YESTERYEAR page. I'm also gonna do a write up of
our Norwegian trip and perhaps a little, well overdue synopsis of
last years Germany trip.
I've also presented Frankie
wiv a laptop computer and 'e's promised to do some.... erm...creative
writin' while e's away in Switzerland for all of February. 'E ain't
contributed nuffink for a while so 'e must be chockablock wiv stuff.
No rest for the bleedin' wicked
'Ere's annuver quick update
for yer. We 'ad our first practice on Tuesday for the first time in
wot seemed like chuffin' ages and if I don't mind sayin' meself we
were splendid!!!! We were reshapin' the set for the U.S dates and
I tell yer wot:- when we pare it down to a 35 minute lump, it's a
rock'n'roll rollercoaster ride of hit after hit. Can't wait to be
blastin' it out to the kids over the other side of the pond. A couple
of songs 'ave been re-worked too...watch this space.
Talkin' of the U.S I should
be confirmin' annuver 2 or 3 dates by Monday. The Buffalo one still
ain't 100% and our chum Marianne (who is doin' a bleedin' marvellous
job...nice one!!!) is hoping to sort out one or two more. The t-shirt
design went off today and also the CDs for sale on the tour. Big Cheers
Gawd Bless yer to Sir Loin of Maldonia for
his kind offer of a couple of nights kip whilst we're in Boston too.
PLEASE NOTE VENUE CHANGE FOR
THE PROVIDENCE RI SHOW. SEE GIGS
One other bit of news about
the U.S of A is that we've sent off some CDs to CARGO
MUSIC for a bit of distribution.If you're after a copy
of GHETTO BLASTER stateside then
drop 'em a line and get 'em to sort you out. Nice one to Josh at Cargo
for puttin' up wiv all my faffin' about and gettin' that sorted.
I've also bin speakin' to CARGO
RECORDS in the U.K about sortin' out some distro wiv
them too.....'opefully I'll 'ear wot respose they're lookin' at gettin'
from their outlets early next week. Drop 'em a line and demand they
stock your favourite Street Rock'n'Rollers. Nice one.
Frankie is away workin' in Switzerland
for the whole of February but I've sorted 'im out wiv a laptop and
'e's promised to do some sort of 'creative' writin' while 'e's away.
I know 'e's got a few interviews to catch up on and 'opefully 'e'll
do somefink smashin' for the website. Chipshop 'as bin gettin' in
some proper rehearsin' for his VIVA LAS VEGAS
venture wiv Barnet and ACEFACE
'ave bin back in the studio addin' to the tracks for thier next album.
Frankie 'imself was in there wiv Ace on Thursday doin' some ivory
Anyone interested in comin'
over to our gig in Bruges at De
Kastelein on the coach from London on March 27th? Sheffield
Dave is still tryin' to sort out a beano if anyone is up for it. Drop
us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll put you in touch the Sheff-meister. Nice one!!
The final line-up for our debut
Dutch gig at Innocents in Hengelo hasn't bin sorted yet. Serge 'as
'ad one band drop out, but you can keep an eye on wot the score is
I know I've bin goin' on about
it for a while but I will definitely get the PHOTOS
page sorted in the next couple of days. I've got all the ones I want
and they're all scanned and trimmed and rarin' to go. I've just started
a new job this week so it's bin a bit hectic but I'll try and catch
up this week.
Well hello....few bits and pieces
of news. We 'ad anuvver band meetin' last night to see how all our
chores are goin'. Frankie's 'ad some ideas for a US tour t-shirt which
he'll be showin' us at next week's band practice. Workin' title is
'COCKNEY ROCKERS IN THE USA 2004'
and we're gettin' 'em knocked up via a contact in Rhode Island.
I'm 'opin' to get anuvver show
confirmed this weekend in Buffalo NY. It's 99% nailed down....just
waitin' on the word. It's bin a bit of a bleedin' struggle to get
a show in NYC, so I'm gonna give it a couple more days and then try
for somewhere different. Things are movin' on though...I've got B-Lo
workin' on findin' us a decent van hire job, we've reserved our first
night's kip in Boston for the night we've arrived and we've blagged
a few passes into the DROPKICK MURPHY'S
show for that night too. I've even managed to bum the lend of some
gear for our big show with the DROPKICKS for the Sunday too.....big
Cheers Gawd Bless Yer to Mr Kelly for that one.
I've sorted out some barcode
stickers for sendin' copies of the new CD over to America too. That
means we can now cut to the quick with a couple of guys I've bin talkin'
to over there about distro and hopefully get some knockin' about in
time for our visit. Talkin' of distro, I've bin talkin' to a very
nice man at Cargo Records about possibly taking on some of the new
CDs. He's just doin' a bit of pre-sales research so fingers crossed
there for some good news.
Still gettin' plenty of interest
in the CD and they're sellin' nicely. Rememeber yo can always get
'em direct from us. See the MERCH
page for details. They are also available through PURE
IMPACT....Peter's bin sellin' a fair few and has just
ordered a few more so get 'em while they're hot kids. Any other distro
outlets come on board and I'll let yers know.
Check out the REVIEWS
page for the latest reviews of the album from around the world. We
ain't 'ad a bad one yet.
We've booked anuvver gig this
week too. Nice one to Lee M for puttin' us on the bill for his Bank
'Oliday Monday all dayer at The Kings Arms in Acton, W. London on
May 31st. The full bill is not yet confirmed but likely paricipants
at this stage are U.K
DEFERENS and also Chipshop's side 'project' wiv Barnet
Mark VIVA LAS VEGAS. More details about
this as I get 'em.
Our old muckers ACACIA
AVENUE have been added to the bill for our gig at the
12 Bar Club for March 6th. Barnet says him and Chipshop might grace
the stage wiv their presence an' all....Gawd 'elp us!!
Thanks to Bjorn E for sendin'
through some photos of our recent gig in Oslo. I'll put some up tomorrer
when I revamp the PHOTOS page...got a bit of catchin' up to do there.
Frankie 'as complained that there ain't enough of him lookin' beautiful
so he's demanded I put a load from 'is own personal Oi!
The Supermodel collection.....also got some from recent gigs
Right, that's your lot for now...
Well, we're anuvver week closer
to our trip to the States and we've got anuvver show confirmed. Sunday
21st March sees us in New Jersey. We've confirmed the show at Connections
in Passaic NJ with THE
RESTARTS from London. Other support
should be from DEAD
HEROS (NJ) and hopefully THE
NY REL-X. The bill has to be fully confirmed but it's
a goer. It should be a quality night an' all as the Brits take on
the Yanks at punk and street rock'n'roll.
MIDNIGHT CREEPS have confirmed for the Providence RI
show, but The Roachenders have unfortunately pulled out. Two other
bands to be confirmed there. I'll let you know as soon as Jeff fills
me in wiv the details. This will be a launch party for the Creeps'
new split E.P with our own CAPO
Support at the 12 Bar Club gig
on March 6th is lookin' like bein' from our old muckers ACACIA
page for all the latest news.
Not much else to report really.
We're in the process of sortin' out some tour t-shirts for the US
trip and we've got anuvver band meetin' tonight to see how everyfink
is progressin'. We'll be bookin' some rehearsals for the end of this
month and the end of next month to re-adjust the set for this next
bunch of gigs and to make sure we ain't forgotten the bleedin' songs.
Well, it's still today, so just
a little bit more news wot's come out of tonight's chinwag.
First orf, Frankie has said
e's unavailable for any more gigs in April, so we won't be doin' nuffink
else apart from that long weekend from 22nd April til 25th April.
More news on that weekend when I get it. In the meantime 'e's bin
sent packin' to sort out a U.S Tour t-shirt design. We're toying wiv
turnin' the Statue of Liberty into a Pearly Queen and callin' it Cockney
Rockers in the U.S.A 2004. Ha bleedin' ha.
We've confirmed the line up
for the New Jersey show. It's not THE NY
REL-X who're playin' but its THE
KRAYS. Sorry about that. Big Cheers Gawd Bless Yer
to Adi from PUNKNITE
for her 'elp wiv that. Nice one!!!
Check out this flippin' excellent
review of the new album by Adam at Gang
Up webzine from Washington D.C. 'E certainly don't
mince 'is words. Nice one mate!!!
We're still workin' on distribution
an' all. I've got to talk to a feller in a sec about U.S distro. I'll
also be talkin' to a geezer about U.K distro tomorrer and I've been
in conversation wiv a chap I know about Japanes distro too. Cor Blimey
it's all go innit?
Well, I finally got round to
bookin' the flights to America at about 1 o'clock this mornin'. So
that's it, we've got to bleedin' go now....whether they like it or
not. Leavin' 4 p.m on March 11th and gettin' 'ome at about 8 p.m on
March 23rd...if we're still alive!!!
I'm still workin' on the New
Jersey show...got a bit of a hiccup there. It's already booked out
to another London punk band would you believe...THE
RESTARTS...and I'm tryin' to get 'old of the promoter
to see if she'll put us on the same bill. My sources reckon wiv both
bands on the same night it'll be one of the best gigs they've 'ad
in NJ for a long time...but we've obviously gotta run it past Adi
and the other bands first. More news when it 'appens.
I've put some more details of
the U.S gigs on the GIGS
page. We've secured New Jersey herberts DEAD
HEROS (NJ) for our support at the Ithaca NY show. They'll
also play at any New Jersey show we do, and we're workin' to get 'em
on at the Providence and Albany shows.
The other thing to come out
of our mini band meetin' (mini, as in Chipshop not bein' there) last
night was the fact that we might have to do some shufflin' wiv April's
gigs. Frankie 'as got to check 'is work schedule, and until we get
a green light from 'im, the only confirmed April shows will be the
ones around the Hartlepool All Dayer weekend. One possible development
on that is that we might go for a gig in Leeds on the Thursday (22nd)
instead of somewhere on the North East coast. It was just somethin'
I was discussin' wiv that fine gent Lee M. but we won't know til that
fruitcake Sweeney from THE
DEAD PETS returns
from 'is present jaunt to Boston MA. Check out their excellent website,
by the way...especially the Pie
Recipe Page . Nice one!!!!
Talkin' of pies, I've added
a much belated bit onto the YOBGRUB
page. Tomorrow I'm gonna do some more to the PHOTOS
page and ACE'S
SOUNDS OF YESTERYEAR.
Well bugger me if it ain't 2004.
Happy New Year to you all, me old chinas. 'Ere's 'opin' you 'ad a
good 'oliday and didn't eat as much old cack as I did...I've 'ad to
pop meself on a temporary diet for a couple of weeks to get into me
I've just 'ad a butchers down
the start of this page and it's bin goin' since April 2002. Blimey...it's
about time we done somethin' decent then I spose....
Well, what's bin 'appenin' then,
you may ask...well, the big news is that we've nearly sorted out our
Amercian dates which were cancelled last year due to well moody prices
for air fares. We're gonna fly out on March 11th and return on March
23rd. We're 100% confirmed on the support for the mighty DROPKICK
MURPHYS gig in Boston MA for
March 14th now....that is gonna be an absolute bleedin' belter....2,400
people all chuckin' stuff at us...ha ha ha. Cheers Gawd Bless Yer
to Mr. Kelly for all he's done wiv sortin' out that show for us. Also
more Cheers Gawd Bless Yers to:- Lance, B-Lo, Aaron, Chris, Mariane,
Jeff, JJ, Ethan and Adam.
If anyone else Stateside can
'elp wiv any shows in the remainin' gaps please get in touch...we'd
appreciate it. We're lookin' to confirm a show very soon in New Jersey
for March 21st, but we'd like somethin' in NYC for March 19th or 20th.
The other 2 gaps are March 15th and March 16th. Nice one.
We've also confirmed this week
a show at THE
12 BAR CLUB in London for March 6th. Well done to Barnet
for that one. It's the same night as THE
DROPKICKS MURPHYS are
playin' the Astoria up the old frog, so come down and see us afterwards....see
how it's done properly ha ha. Barnet 'as mentioned support comin'
from 'im and Chipshop's Elvis covers band...yet to confirm...Gawd
Other gig news for March is
we're orf back to Bruges to finally play at DE
KASTELEIN on March 27th. It's bin on and orf for ages
this one, but we finally nailed it down. Support is unconfirmed at
the moment, but it will consist of a French, a Belgian and a German
band we've bin told. There 'as also bin rumours of SHEFFIELD
DAVE tryin' to organise a bit of a beano over there for
the gig from our side of the swanny. If anyone is up for it he can
be contacted via the most childish and puerile message board on the
web at the Oi!4England
Website. Nice one Steve!!!!
The day after we're at DE
KASTELEIN, we're orf to play out very first ever gig in
Holland in Hengelo. 'Opefully see some of you there.
Check out the GIGS
page for the latest gig news.
Also on the gig front, 'ere's
a quick plug for our Jock muckers ON
bravely tryin' to follow in our footsteps by playin' in Finland courtesy
of Jani and the boys. They've been told of the sauna challenge and
we don't expect the present SUPERYOB
record to be beaten. THE WARRIORS
managed one person wiv undies on and we managed two persons stark
bleedin' bollock naked (wiv twig batterin' an' all!!!). Trouble is,
in winter time them Finnish nutters go for a roll around in the snow
afterwards...ha ha good luck boys...I bet they don't even get one
Don't forget to check out the
page for our story of our trip there.

Nice one Adam.....

the road you know.
THE NEW ALBUM IS OUT AT LAST
Yup, it's finally out...after
a year and a half of no-one wantin' to know and much fannyin' about
, we finally got our arse in gear and got GHETTO BLASTER released.
Relieved? Not 'arf....
Well, we got the album launched
good and proper at The Bull and Gate at the end of November. Top night
it was an' all. Despite Acacia Avenue tryin' to bollocks it all up
by being two and an 'alf hours late wiv the backline, the whole fing
went really well. Cheers to the 'Avenue, The Lillettes and to Aceface
for backing us up at the do. Special mention to The Lillettes for
all 5 of them (including the new feller on the bass) managing to resist
the urge to get hold of Chipshop in the backstage area...he was oozin'
wiv charm that night I tell yers. Big 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yer' to the
Finnish contingent who came over for the show as well. They drank
me out of bleedin' 'ouse and 'ome, but well done chaps....nice one!!!
Hope the hooter's feelin' better Jani.For those of you who chose to
go to WASTED...your loss kids....though I heard Deadline were good.
Well, we've been sendin' out
promos of the new album and initial response 'as bin good. Fave songs
appear to be 'Vicious Circle', 'Love Us Hate Us' and 'Heartbreak Bridge'.
We've 'ad a few reviews in...soon as I get a decent wad of 'em I'll
luzz 'em up on the REVIEWS page...you try and bleedin' stop me. Copies
are now available through Pure
Impact I believe, and also from Pete at Groove Records and the
Hit Shop in Bruges. Mr Kelly has taken some in Boston MA and will
be takin' some more soon. Discussions regardin' further US distribution
is still ongoin'....watch this space for details. Further European
distro will also be soon forthcomin' when I wade through Herve's contacts
(nice fella that Herve...)
Don't forget the album is available
through us 'ere at Yob Towers..see MERCH
page for details. Get those orders floodin' in....we've had only one
cheque bounce so far....soon as Frankie tells me the feller's name
I'll put it up 'ere to name and shame the scoundrel....
We were payin' in Norway last
week at the annual Oslo Skins Juleblot, which is a 2-day Christmas
gig/piss up. Top bloody weekend I tell yer....if you ever want an
expensive pint though, get your arse over to Norway...flamin' nora...we
paid nearly six quid for a pint of Guinness in a boozer in Oslo...OUCH!!
Massive 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yer'
to Bjorn Erik and Silje for putting us up and putting up with us.
Chipshop's arse was on the most deadliest of form the whole weekend....I
can only apologise...."CAAAAKE"
Also thanks to Bjorn A. for
his help with the event, the boys behind the bar at The Caven, The
Whalers, Oi! Division, A Case of Pride and those nutters from Haggis.
Big 'Nice One!!!!' to the boys and girls in the DEADLINE
barmy army...especially James for services to insomnia.....see you
all again soon.
There'll be a write up of the
weekend at some point....some juicy snippets....Ace cuttin' a rug
on the dance floor...Chipshop and his new chat up technique....playin'
a gig in a nuclear fall out shelter......etc etc etc
Gigs....we've got 'em. We're
in the process of plannin' our promo gigs for the album for next March/April.
Not a lot fully confirmed as yet but we're lookin' at a London gig
first weekend of March followed by our re-arranged jaunt to the U.S.A
in mid March. Two shows confirmed there...one of which is a support
to the mighty DROPKICK
MURPHY'S at one of there St Patrick's weekend shows in Boston
MA on March 14th. We're lookin' at a trip involving dates in France,
Belgium and Holland in late March and also a long weekend in the UK
takin' in Merseyside, Scotland, Hartlepool (confirmed all-dayer) and
Stockport towards the end of April. We might even try and squeeze
a couple of shows in in Germany too. All these and more shows should
be confirmed soon. Soon as they are, I'll update the GIGS page with

IT'S SAUNA ROCK'N'ROLL BUT I LIKE IT
Right, I'm knackered....orf

Well, 'ere we are then...a couple
of days before the next SUPERYOB show and release of the new album.
It's come round pretty quick in th end...all that anticipation and

from the supplier and come Sunday we'll be ready to stuff 'em into
your sweaty little mitts....after the fair exchange of the ackers
We've had plenty of enquiries
from around the world. We're just in the process of gettin' some to
that jolly nice chap Peter at Pure Impact. Contact him via http://www.pure-impact.com
and track down your copy that way. We've bin talking to a couple of
places Stateside too. That fine fellow Mr. Rainey at TKO
Records has chipped in with some contacts, Ethan at Reality
Clash Records has shown some interest and also Josh at Cargo
has been onto us too. Couple that with some assistance from our good
friend MK over there in Boston and we should be spreadin' the word
fairly quickly. I'll confirm surefire availability as it happens...
Talkin' of Boston, we're almost
there wiv the first couple of shows bein' booked for our resceduled
U.S visit. That fine citizen Lancey-Boy from Tommy
& The Terrors has been doin' some sortin' on our behalf in
MKs absence and we're lookin' at March 12th or 13th for a Boston show
at a new club called Dee-Dees. Once that's certain we'll fill in the
gaps either side of it. Also chatted to JJ today from New Jersey herberts
who's keen to sort us a show wv 'em in their neck of the woods. We're
also liaisin' wiv Rhode Island chaps The
Roachenders about doin' some shows wiv us too. It's all excitin'
bleedin' stuff.....more news as I 'ave it.
We've got our pre-launch party
band practice tonight. We'll be discussin' plans for other shows for
next year. We've proposed settin' aside March and April for doin'
gigs to promote the album. Apart from America we're lookin' at a return
to Bruges for a gig at Die
Kastelein (saw some of the Belgian lads on Saturday....they still
like a beer!!!), a show in Hengelo in East Holland, a return trip
to Bonnie Scotland to play with On
File ,a couple of shows back in Germany and a merry jaunt around
England (and also perhaps our first gig in Wales). Thanks to Lee M.
for his help and contacts with potential gigs....nice one mate!!!
All that leaves me to say is
....see you on Sunday...be there prompt.... first band (the marvellous
ACEFACE ) will
be on around 7-ish....
Oh, and be prepared for the
unveilin' of a new Frankie Flame artistic masterpiece....arf arf...

Date of that is April 24th. So pogo away your St. George's day hangovers
wiv us up there on Teeside. More details when we get 'em.
I've started the ball rollin'about
U.S dates too. The first, very tentative proposed touchdown up there
in Boston is for the second week in March. This is all unconfirmed
but I'm waiting for some feedback from the guys on the ground over
there and we should have some positive news soon.
Our mate Per from Sweden has

Right-O, 'ere's the cover art
I promised you...all very mean and moody innit.
In the absence of dear, departed
Hammer Records we are now Underground London Records' first artistes.
Long may it continue. As ever, a huge 'Cheers, Gawd Bless Yer...here's
to rock'n'roll...yee-oww' to the mighty Degz at Cray
Designs. If anyone needs some serious artwork done for CDs, websites
or whatever, 'e is most certainly the chap.
We're 'avin' a meetin' tomorrow
to discuss markettin' of the album. We'll also set a mail order price
for those of you who wanna order directly from us. We've 'ad a few
people offer 'elp wiv distribution so far...if anyone else 'as contacts
worldwide. we'd be well chuffed to hear from you. Once we 'ave solid
distro set up we'll let you all know where you can get the album all
over the world ('opefully!!!). Watch this space..
Got a few sniffs of gigs for
next year comin' in already. As anyfink gets finalised I'll let yers
If anyone fancies it, 'ead on
down to The Beacon Court Tavern in Gillingham, Kent on November 15th
for a night of top quality entertainment. You've got Section 5, On
File, Headcase, Badlands and Riot Squad. Can't argue with that. We
can't miss out on the chance to 'ave an ale or two wiv our chums from
Norf of the border and also Tosh and the boys....see you there. Chipshop
has announced he'll be gettin' right on the piss that night...local
kebab shops 'ave been made aware.
Full address is 128 Canterbury
St, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 5TP. Tel: 01634 853186
Well, we finally bleedin' did
it. The new album GHETTO BLASTER went orf to the factory. We finally
thrashed out the artwork on Tuesday round at Degz's (cor blimey, that
geezer 'as the patience of a saint I tell yer!!) and Ace and Frankie
took the finished article down there yesterday. And very 'andsome
it looks too...lots of luvverly photos and all the lyrics in there
too. We've bin told it should take 3-4 weeks to come back. Thats well
'andy, cos that'll fit in just nicely wiv our release party at The
Bull & Gate in London's Kentish Town on November 23rd (see GIGS).
Not only can yers come along and lay yer mitts on the new 'Yob album
but you can also see 'em live in the company of three other splendid
acts (Don't forget Aceface
are playin' too!!) You know it makes sense!!!!!
We'll of course be sellin' the
album through the site. Price is T.B.A, but it'll be a chuffin' bargain
whatever, so don't worry about that!! I'll stick a bit up on the MERCH
page as soon as Degz gets back from 'is 'ols and e-mails me a finished
cover picture. See below for track listin'
Anyone wishin' to discuss distro
e-mail us at email@example.com
Anyone who gets 'old of the
album and has the good sense to want to review it, let us 'ave 'em....go
on, don't be shy.
See yers at the launch party......
Blimey, where's all this year
goin'? I had to jaunt back to 'Olland again and now it's bleedin'
October all of a sudden. It's got cold an' all innit? I never caught
up with the feller in 'Olland but I've got some more chances comin'
up to get 'old of 'im.
We're talkin' about gigs for
next year now already. Bin chattin' to those nice chaps Ian and Lee
from the Rifleman about a South London spectacular they're planning
for next Easter Bank 'Oliday...gotta book early. Also that fine man
Sheffield Dave has been trackin' down some venues up there in the
wilds of Yorkshire for us to play on our occasional Yob Weekend Breaks.
We've bin invited back to a few we've played this year and also we
have to re-schedule some that never 'appened.
I've started the ball rollin'
for the re-jigged U.S dates. I've asked me 'Yob chums MK and Lancey
Boy to try to confirm a date in Boston for mid-March time. With one
show definitely booked, we can then get our other chums back on board
and start organising a proper block of gigs. I'll keep you informed.
Album wise, we're still hoping
to gt it done ready for floggin' at out London WAISTED show on November
23rd. Ace and Degz 'ave been doin' some more on the artwork and Frankie
'as bin called in for some 'artistic guidance'....well, he went to
art school didn't he....all that should be done within' the next week
or so. The final mastered version of the album is sittin' 'ere in
my clammy mitts right now. The full runnin' order is:-
'THE PUNK' -
trademark spoken word Superyob intro vignette.
'GHETTO BLASTER' -
Singalong title track....already
a live fave....the new punk irony as it really is...
'BANG TO RIGHTS' -
Story book saga of everyday life
on the Costa Del Crime....a classic..
'TOWER BLOCKS & TENEMENTS'
- Fast as you
like tirade against inner city decay.....
'VICIOUS CIRCLE' -
The massive electric version of the
acoustic tale of real life and the desperation it entails...
'HEARTBREAK BRIDGE' -
Brick wall of guitars leads you through
a tale of growing up on the South London streets...
Heavy duty soundtrack to a heavy
duty message...don't do it....
'FRIDAY ON MY MIND' -
Big guitar treatment with a huge
singalong chorus in this rework of The Easybeats tune....
'UGLY BURGER' -
Quirky tale of everyone's favourite
'KIDS ARE ALRIGHT?' -
Ironic pop-tastic inquest into where
we are today...with a history lesson to boot....
'BIG BROTHER' -
A charged and angry reaction to legalized
snooping and reality TV...
'BOX O' LIGHTS' -
Eerie disturbing tale of arson, death
'LOVE US HATE US' -
Pub rock...Glam rock...Punk rock...Streetrock...sing
with us....you are us.....
It's bin a long time comin'....we're
certainly looking forward to hearin' wot you fink about it....
'Ello 'ello 'ello...back from
'Olland, where I've bin workin'....trying to sort out a Yob gig or
2 while I'm over there...gotta meet up with a feller next week cos
I've got to go bleedin' back again tomorrow. Just to let you know
that the artwork for the new album is gettin' done this week...Degz
'as got his work cut out....
Heard confirmation that Deadline
are definitely playin' wiv us at The Juleblot in Norway in December....should
be a crackin' weekend I reckon.
Sorry for gettin' behind wiv
me e-mails....if anyone has made any enquiries about merch etc then
I'll get round to it this comin' weekend...promise. Frankie is also
away at the moment so once I get this poxy overseas work out of the
way, I'll be back on the case..
Just a quickie boys and girls....'ad
a bit of a strange night last night. Sposed to be doin' some Aceface
stuff wiv the UK SUBS over in West London, but half of the band never
made it. Now, wiv Chipshop in attendance it was obvious really....do
an impromptu Superyob gig as a 3-piece. Ace on drums, Chippie on borrowed
bass and huge thirst and Haystacks on borrowed everyfink and vocals,
it was a disaster waitin' to 'appen....except that it wasn't...it
was actually a jolly crackin' wheeze...and all under the banner of
SUPERSLOB...ha ha. Well done to Stuart for getting up and singing
Running Riot and bad show all round to the Hounslow boys for all developin'
sore throats and memory loss when asked to join in the singin' duties.
Cheers to Mickey Monkey, Emergency and the Subs for the use of the
gear...cor blimey!!!! Special mention for Chipshop who turned up only
to have a beer and support his fellow Yobs....he ended up doin' a
gig and havin' the entire band free bar tab all on his Jack....he
was last spotted by Ace at 10 to 2 downin' double brandy and cokes
like they were goin' out of fashion...and pissed as a bleedin' cricket....
I'm orf workin' abroad for 2
weeks as of tomorrow so no updates til I get back....
Well, we 'ad our little meetin'
last night and here is what we've decided:- we're gonna release the
Ghetto Blaster album ourselves. Seein' as no-one in the scene is willin'
to invest in what is undoubtedly the album of the decade so far, we're
gonna stop messin' about and do it off our own back....
Our deadline is to have everyfink
ready for production within the next month. Ace and Frankie have a
little bit of post-production work to do in the studio:- we've taken
one track out of the original Ghetto Blaster sessions (which may soon
be released in all it's original glory on a compilation album.....watch
this space...) and replaced it with a cover version we did during
the 'How Does it Feel' sessions. I'll post the full revised track
list as soon as they've done and dusted in the studio.
Degzy-boy at CRAY
DESIGNS has been commissioned to finish off the artwork and then
it's orf to the plant for release by the time of our WAISTED gig on
It's been a long time comin'
we can tell yers....we can't wait for the release...
Frankie gave a merch report....still
plenty of goodies left kids, so get down to the MERCH
page for what we've got knockin' about...Frankie found the last box
of Machine Guns & Alcohol CDs we've got...so I'd get in there
quick if I was you...
We also had some new photos
presented to us last night too....we've had a load from Finland (cheers
Jani....how's the missus?) and a few hundred from Degz which we've
got to trawl through to select the best for the album artwork, some
gig flyers and also for the PICS
page. There are some corkers of Chipshop and Haystacks fresh from
the sauna in Finland which are sure to have all you girls in a state
of excitement I can assure you (none of Ace and Frankie tho', they
ran off to bed when the sauna was heatin' up....) I'll try and get
some of them up tomorrow.
Just a quickie about ACEFACE......they're
playing a few shows this weekend and they've just released their excellent
new single Oxbridge Boys/A Day in the Life....trust me, it's a fuckin'
Wotcha all....'ow's it 'angin'?
Well, we finished orf August wiv a bang...a top night playin' wiv
the Rejects in Coventry. It was a top hole evenin'...good to see plenty
of familiar faces and the bands were all excellent....specially the
Rejects. Ta to Lee M. and Jim B. for sortin' us the gig for us at
We played 6 shows in August...our
most concentrated month ever....shame about the USA thing...but that
would have probably killed us...fanx to everyone who came out to see
Anyway, onto the future. Our
next UK gig will not be til 23rd November when we're doin' our own
show in conjunction wiv that nice chap Phil at Bull & Gate promotions.We're
callin' it WAISTED..just wait il you see the promo photos...cor blimey
guv'ner...it'll all become clear. It's at The
Bull & Gate in Kentish Town, London NW5 and features us, new
happenin' Mod/Punk darlings ACEFACE,
recent 'Yob support act ACACIA
AVENUE and those glamourous queens of trash THE
We reckon we've put on a diverse
and well entertainin' bill....and all for a bleedin' fiver..can't
say fairer than that eh?
Hope to see a lot of you out
for that one...
Our other confirmed gig in on
December 12th in Oslo in Norway. It's for the Juleblot, which is the
annual Chrsitmas jolly up organised by the Oslo skins. We're headlinin'
on the Friday night and also playin' over the course of the weekend
will be Deadline, The Whalers, Oi! Division and Case of Pride.
We've also been approached to
do a gig in France for November, but nothing confirmed just as yet.
Ace and Frankie 'ave just turned
up and we're gonna have a quick band meetin' to do a bit of plannin'
for the next few months....another update tomorrow to let yers know
wot went on....
Just a quickie......we're not
now playing the Wasted Festival in November....see the GIGS
page for what we're doing instead.
More news tomorrow.
Got some bleedin' crackin' news
for yers....Frankie confirmed wiv me tonight that we're supporting
street punk legends THE
COCKNEY REJECTS at The Jailhouse in Coventry on Saturday August
30th. We're well chuffed about this, I tell yer. Frankie's got a bit
of history, wot wiv the Rejects boys doin' production on some of 'is
early stuff. See GIGS page
for flyer etc
The gig at The Drum and Monkey
in Ipswich is most definitely off......a couple of people 'ave asked
me about it. It's still listed on a coupleof websites apparently.
We're hoping to re-schedule that one for later in the year.
We're orf to Finland on Thursday...I'll
tell you all about it when we get back....
Shiver me bleedin' timbers me
hearties, if we ain't returned safe and sound from a couple of weekends
of Yob gigs.
The gig in Barrow in Furness
was excellent fun. It was a long old trot, but thoroughly worthwhile...we
'ad a great night. All the travel arrangements went to plan and everything.
Big 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yer' to Col at Unity for the gig and the kip
afterwards, Jools for the sound, Dai at Healey's and the support bands
12 Ft Machete and Nana's Revenge. We've been asked back and will ceratinly
be making the trip again.
The Rigger gig was an absolute
sweatbox of a show. The attendance was bit low, but we found out why.
There was another venue just down the road that was closing that night
and they were doing all drinks for a quid. Not only that, there was
a Scooter Rally on for the weekend just outside of town. Not only
that, Buff the promoter was having his 40th birthday piss up down
the road and took all the regulars with him. Not only that, local
boy made good Robbie Williams was live in concert on the telly too.
No wonder it was a bit quiet...we did a good show tho' and big 'Cheers
Gawd Bless Yer' to Captain Buff, Matt the soundman and support bands
Like Hanratty (who were fuckin' mental...check them out...). Also
cheers to Tosh from Section 5 for making the show and taking us to
his local afterwards for a whopping great lock in.
Last Saturday at The Rifleman
was an even sweatier experience...I thought I was gonna bleedin' die,
I tell yer. It was one of those great spur of the moment nights. Again,
the crowd was not massive, but it turned into a right old jolly...a
classic Superyob show in fact. Chipshop was moving bedsit so didn't
turn up until 10 minutes after we were sposed to go on. I think everyone
who was there really enjoyed themselves. Big 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yer'
to Lee & Ian for the gig, Frode for the sound and support bands
The Stand-Ins and B Plan. Also hello to Glenn...nice to see you were
sober enough to talk to me this time....ha ha ha.
I'll do some proper write ups
of these within the next week or so and whack 'em up on the GIGS
I've done a couple of additions
to the YOBGRUB page and
Frankie has added a couple of gems for his POSTCARDS
page for your perusal......see you next time.
STOP PRESS:- We're down
to our last few 'Machine Guns & Alcohol' CDs, so get in quick
if you want one...check the MERCHANDISE
page for details. All the 'Aggrophobia' CDs have sold out. Bout time
we released a new album by the sounds of it.......
'Ello 'ello 'ello. I've 'ad
a bit of feedback from our muckers in the States. They weren't as
pissed orf as they 'ad every right to be, and they all still want
to get involved with re-shedulin' some shows for us. At the moment.
I'm gonna go for March. Apparently, any time before that and the weather
in the North East is a bit taters like.....it didn't 'alf bleedin'
snow when I was out there in February I tell yers. I'll keep you informed.....big
Cheers Gawd bless Yer to MK, Lancey Boy, B-Lo, Bob, Ethan, Chris &
JJ for your help so far gents....we're lookin' forward to seein' you
We've had our slot at the WASTED
show in London moved from the Saturday to the Sunday......funny that....
We've added another support
to our gig at The Rigger this Saturday. Scum are breaking in a new
bass player and have had to pull out. However, we've replaced them
with a fine trashy pop/punk outfit from Sheffield called Acacia Avenue.
Check out some of their tunes on www.acaciaavenue.com.
Scum will still be playing with
us at The Rifleman gig tho' on August 9th.
As it says on our MERCH
page, we've run out of 'AGGROPHOBIA' CDs. If anyone knows of a source
where these can still be tracked down, can you drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
We still requests for 'em, so
if we can point people in the right direction we'll all be 'appy....apart
from me, cos I ain't even got one.
Hope to see some of you out
and about over the next few weeks.
Right, I've got a fair bit of
news to catch up on so 'ere we jolly well go. First orf, we've decided
to postpone the gigs in the U.S of A. This is 'cos of 2 reasons:-
firstly we only ended up 'avin' 4 dates confirmed and the cost involved
to ourselves was likely to be about 2 grand. Wiv only 4 shows to play,
we would be runnin' at a serious loss. Airfares at this time of year
are 2½ times more than colder months, so we've proposed to
re-schedule for Feb/March of next year. I've communicated individually
wiv the guys who were 'elpin' us over there, and we're 'opin' they'll
help us wiv our re-planning. Our apologies to all our friends Stateside
who'd lent a hand and shown interest. We'll do our best to get out
there early next year.
We've also had to cancel our
show booked at The Drum & Monkey in Ipswich for August 30th. This
was at the request of the guv'ner. The mighty 'Ammers are playin'
the Tractor Boys the same evenin' and the local Old Bill are anticipatin'
trouble in the boozers close to the ground and the railway station.
We'll definitely re-schedule this too, 'cos the guv'ner's well keen
to have us up there. Apologies to support band Lady
In The Radiator for messin' em about and to everyone else who
helped us wiv that one. We'll let you know when we get anuvver date.
All this buggerin' about means
that we've managed to sneak in a date at The
Rifleman in Hounslow, West London on August 9th. Support will
be from SPITTING DUMMIES from Manchester and Huddersfield's finest
We're also playin' at Healey's
Bar in Barrow In Furness on August 1st and at The
Rigger in Newcastle Under Lyme on August 2nd.
The gig in Finland on August
23rd is till a goer too...even if we 'ave got a chuffin' 10 hour wait
in Sweden thanks to Ryan Bastard Air. I've travelled wiv 'em 3 times.
The first time I went to Sweden and me luggage went to Ireland, the
second time they lost me and Chipshop's guitars and now they present
us wiv this poxy stopover in a cowshed airport in the middle of some
soddin' forest. We might have tracked down some chums to go and visit
while we're there though, so it might not be too bad. Ryan Air are

covers and 2 stonkin' great lumps of Street Rock'n'Roll. Not only
that they're instant collectors items too....Udo at SCREWED
UP RECORDS managed to get the labels on the wrong sides, so they're
all arse about face.....yet another reason to get 'old of one of the
little buggers. If anyone is interested in taking larger numbers off
Udo, I'm sure he'd be interested. Contact him at email@example.com
and I'm sure he'll be glad to hear from yers.

Other little bits of news:-

blows 'is 'ooter and that's that.
Hope you all enjoyed 'ITS. Shame

their haggis worrying, a special London show suportin' one of THE
great StreetRock bands, and a trip over to Die Kastelein in Belgium

We're in the rehearsal studio

Greetin's me old muckers.Happy
St. George's Day. Just to let you know we're all alive and well after
our German jaunt. 4 gigs wiv those gay Scotsmen, On File, shedloads
of beer and millions of bleedin' miles on the German autobahns. There
will be a Deutschland Diary of course, wiv loads of pics....when I
get round to doin' it. I've bin a lazy git, I know....I've got so
much to do it makes me chuffin' bonce hurt, I tell yers.
News-wise:- single should be

Germany and he seems a spot on sort of geezer..availablity details
as soon as we've got our grubby mitts on 'em. Got a few dates confirmed

Special), more of Ace's Hits of Yesteryear and perhaps some more gig
Send in yer photos, gig suggestions,
libellous filth and offers of a right royal knees up to firstname.lastname@example.org
Well kids....some snippets of
news for you. Firstly, the gig at The Corporation in Sheffield went
well at the weekend. There was good performances from all the bands
and a strong turn-out too. Thanks to all those who travelled to the
show. I'll do a little write up when I get round to it. Good to see
Kieron from Resistance 77, Steve from Oi! For England staying awake
for all of the gig and also good to see the Hartlepool boys again...Gawd
knows who was drivin' the mini-bus 'ome cos they was all well sloshed.
Also cheers to Ace's travellin' minder squad for makin' the trip.
Nice touch from Geordie Mick pissin' up the side of the burger van
outside the venue.
Big Cheers Gawd Bless Yer' to
Sheffield Dave for his help organisin' the gig, local promotion, helpin'
wiv the door and gettin' Ace lost on the way to the digs. Well done
Dave. Also cheers to Stu and Lee at The Corp.
A few interestin' stories include
Chipshop eatin' two 12" pizzas after the show, members of Scum
dancin' to Soft Cell and Gordy from On File gettin' up for a pish
in the middle of the night and takin' the wrong door and lockin' 'imself
out of their room.
We have been asked back again.
We'll let you know when.
Other news is that we've 'ad
the test pressin's through for our single on Screwed Up Rec. Frankie
stuck 'em on his old wind up gramaphone and reckons they sound rather
spiffin'. Me and Degz are just puttin' a few last touches to the artwork
and we should be there in a couple of weeks. Distro and availability
details I'll hit yer wiv as soon as they're known.
All is sorted for our trip with
On File to Germany in a couple of weeks. See the GIGS
page for details. We 'ad a bit of fannyin' about wiv the flights but
that's now all sorted. Oli 'as even hired us a proper mini-bus and
everyfink so we're rarin' to go. I'll take me camera and try and do
a Deutschland Diary for yers.
Other sniffs of gigs include
a possible bash in Finland in August wiv our old mucker Jani. He's
waitin' to see if the band he's booked is gonna drop out and then
we're in. If we don't get this one, he says we'll be definite for
'is next one at the end of the year. 'E's promised us free saunas
I've also bin talkin' to another
promoter in Germany about doin' a one-off show near Dusseldorf in
July. As that develops I'll let you know. Bin chattin' to some chaps
in the good old US of A about progressin' some shows over there. It's
been very slow hearin' back from the contacts I made on me trip out
there month before last, but I'm gettin' the odd ripple from other
interested parties. Frankie's also bin lookin' up some old contacts
too so somethin' will come of it all, stand on me cor blimey guv'ner
strike a light you know it makes sense. These fings take time.
Possible gigs we're workin'
on within our fair shores include a festival fingy in July, a pub
venue in Ipswich, a return to the 12 Bar club, a jaunt up to the Lake
District and a bash in or around Chipshopville.
Couple of weeks in the studio
now rehearsin' our bleedin' bums orf for Germany and then hopefully
the single will create enough interest for someone to take the plunge
and put the album out. You know it makes sense.
More bits to put up on the site
Yeah, I know, I know.....wos
'appened to 'im this time? Sorry for the delay....I've bin well bleedin'
busy. Well, the 12 Bar Club gig was a chuffin' stormer. First time
treadin' the boards for ages and it was as easy as fallin' off a log...or
fallin' off a stage in Chipshp's case. No, we had a good night. Cheers
to Barnet Mark for puttin' us on and for the people who came from
far and wide to support us at the show. 'E's asked to come back a
agin later in the year, so we'll keep you informed about that. Soon
as I do a write up of the show I'll whack it up on the GIGS
page. I've got some photos to put up too.
Other quick bit of news is that
we've signed the contract with Screwed Up records for the release
of the single. I've just got to sort out a bit of artwork and then
it should be sorted, bang on...knock it on the 'ead me old china.
Frankie 'as ben talkin' to a
record comany in Norway over the last few weeks and there might be
sumfink developing there...we'll keep you posted kids. 'E's also bin
doin' some work on designs for the album cover, a new t-shirt and
also a spangly SUPERYOB backdrop.
ACEFACE have got their debut
album out and have been back in the studio recording some songs for
a single. Check 'em out at www.aceface.org.
Next 'YOB outin' is, of course,
up in Sheffield on the 29th of March. Hope to see plenty of you there.
All reports wot we've 'ad suggest a good turn out and a cor blinky
blimey right royal knees up luvaduck.
Greetings to you all. A bit
of news for you. First off is that we've finally confirmed our dates
for Germany with ON FILE at Easter. Check the GIGS
page for details.
We're playin' at The 12 Bar
Club in London on Saturday. Hope to see some of you lot there. Practices
have gone well and we're soundin' our big bad selves again. There
are a couple of new songs in the set so keep 'em peeled. Again, check
the GIGS page for details.
All is sorted for our gig at
the end of the month in Sheffield with On File, Loyalty and Scum.
All the bands are rarin' to go and it should be a blindin' night.
We've pretty much finalised
our 7" single release. Contracts are just about to be exchanged
with Screwed Up Records in Germany for the limited edition release
of HOW DOES IT FEEL c/w ROCK'N'ROLL REVOLUTION. The first song is
a Slade single from 1975 given a fair old bit of Superyob treatment
with big as a bus guitars, some shinin' ivory tinklin' by Frankie
Boy and the trademark Yob Chorus. The second is a brand new song penned
by Ace and Haystacks and is a fearsome yet catchy blast of Glam/Punk.
Soon as I get availablity details I'll let you know. We might get
some action around the album front now....you never bleedin' know
We've had little feedback from
Haystacks' jaunt to America yet. E's bin chasin' up the promoter this
week so we should 'ave some news soon. Check out the TKO
RECORDS message board for Superyob in the States discussions.
I've had a bit of feedback from it in the way of bands and record
companies...we'll see how it goes....
Other gig news is that we sent
Chipshop up to Stokie wekend just gone to try and sort somethin' out
and we've been lookin' at headin' up to the North East for a show
up there. We're always open to gig suggestions so e-mail and tell
us wot you reckon at email@example.com
I've done a bit of work on the
site. Check some new POSTCARDS
from Frankie, some more pop-tastic recommendations from ACE'S
SOUNDS OF YESTERYEAR, a GIG
write up from Belgium ,a new REVIEW
and a new couple of LINKS.
Next up will be an overhaul of the YOBGRUB
page with some tummy-rumblin' additions.
I've got some new PHOTOS
to put up too. Cheers Gawd Blees Yer to French Eddie for 'em. They're
from our jaunt to Scotland and Hartleool last year with On File. We've
also come into 2 live videos of the 'Yob in action: one from Hartlepool
(Cheers Tim) and one from Hounslow (Cheers Kieron)....once Degz 'as
'ad a tinker wiv 'em I'll see if we can provide 'em in DVD format
See you all at the 12 Bar Club......
Well, we went to Boston and
showed them bleeders 'ow to 'ave a beer or two I tell yer. 8 days
of right royal boozin' by myself and Haystacks junior saw some serious
quaffage of the old fallin' down water (or should I say 'water') and
pizza guzzlin' in extreme. Fuck me it was cold !!!!!! Made some good
friends and should have some excitin' leads to let you know about
soon. The 'ospitality of the Boston was chuffin' champion. A very
special Superyob 'Cheers Gawd Bless yer' to the followin':-
Matt Kelly, Greg & Kate,
B-Lo, The Tampoffs (the Pabst Blue Ribbon Barmy Army), all at 96,
Lisa, Ken, Meg, Little Stevie's Pizza Joint, the chaps at TC's Lounge,
Lance the Lad and the inmates at The Boston Hostel. Cheers...
I've also bin talkin' to some
chaps involved in promotin' shows done in the sunny San Francisco/South
California area so we should 'ave some news about potential U.S shows
within the next couple of weeks. There also might be some repercussions
over 'ere in Blighty but I dunno yet. I'll be doin' a Boston Diary
and recommendin' some YOBGRUB
eateries as soon as I get me pics developed.
Other news is that I should
have some good tidings about confirmed shows in Germany by the end
of this week and also some news about the 7" single release an'
all. Also workin' on some more U.K gigs too.
Still no news about the album
I'm afraid kids.....If all else fails we'll release the bleedin' thing
ourselves...watch this space. Have got a few U.S contacts to work
We're finally back in the rehearsal
studio this Wednesday for the first time in effin' ages. We're all
raring to go and 'opefully can remember the songs (thanks for the
help Matt!!!)....Chipshop 'as gone into a pie-based trainin' regime
for the occasion.
I'm gonna try and get some major
work done on the site to coincide with the 'Yob re-enterin' the live
arena..so get ready for some more witty and informative old bollocks
from the Haystacks keyboard. Got a 'Yobs in Belgium' piece to put
up, some more Yobgrub cack , some more of ACE'S
SOUNDS OF YESTERYEAR, a few more REVIEWS,
some POSTCARDS FROM FRANKIE
and some new and interestin' LINKS.
I've 'ad some good feedback about the website so I intend to keep
up the low standard as much as I can....
Check out the new ACEFACE
website......they've got a gig this week and their debut album should
be out the week after.
We'll look forward to seein'
you all out and about on our travels in the next month or two.
No, I ain't dead.....just to
let you know that things are progressin' well wiv the news on the
single release front and also on the Germany dates front. I'm also
workin' on some more U.K shows and I've got a flyer knockin' about
for the Sheffield show in March. Big 'Cheers Gawd Bless Yer' and introduction
into the Superyob Hall of Fame for Steve from the marvellous Oi
For England website for helpin' wiv the flyer. Check out the GIGS
page for details.
Aceface have got a date booked
for February 22nd at The Bull and Gate in Kentish Town, London and
their debut album should be knockin' about within the next week. Check
for news and wot have yer. More shows are in the offin'.
Just one bit of new wot I forgot
to tell yers last night was that we are negotiatin' wiv a record comany
about potentially releasin' a SUPERYOB 7" single. It would contain
tracks from our cover song session wot we did in the middle of last
year and extras tracks wot we did which ain't included in the album.
We'll let you know how we get on.
Cor blimey guv'ner strike a
light if we ain't put bollock all up on the site for 3 months. Before
the excuses, we here at Yob Towers wish you all an 'Appy New Year
and 'ope you all 'ad splendid Festive Seasons.
The reason I ain't put nuffink
up is because we ain't done nuffink. Frankie Flame...King of The Fjords....
'as been away pretty much non-stop since October on 'is one man quest
to turn all of Scandinavia into Chas'n'Dave worshippin' West Ham fans
which 'as meant we ain't bin able to do naff all without the Frankmeister
In short, we still ain't got
the album out. We discussed it wiv a couple of European labels but
nuffink 'as come of it. We got a few standard rejection letters and
a few 'no fank you very much' type replies but basically no-one fancied
it. Just fink wot you're all missing out on. We know we're sittin'
on a bleedin masterpiece; every review we've 'ad 'as been top drawer;
everyone who's heard the promo has said it sounds bleedin' fantastic
(includin' the record companies, strangely); we're still gettin' enquiries
from you lot from all round the world askin' when it's out.....but
no-one 'as come up wiv a worthwhile deal to put it out. Hopefully
with the new year and a bit of renewed Yob activity in the U.K and
abroad we can get fings up and runnin' proper and get the album out.
If all else fails, we'll release it our bleedin' selves. Pester your
favourite StreetRock Record Labels kids....tell 'em you wanna hear
the new SUPERYOB album....use website forums....use zines and webzines....e-mail
all your contacts.....e-mail us if you like. We'd be interested to
hear any feedback. Whack a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
and let us 'ave your thoughts.
Oh, and one more excuse is that
Haystacks 'as only gorn and found 'imself a bird ain't 'e? Sod 'avin'
to take 'er AND 'er blind dog out.....
Here's a quick run through of
what we're workin' on at the moment. First of all, check out the GIGS
page for the latest confirmed SUPERYOB shows. It's bin a while since
we trod the boards and we're lookin' forward to gettin' the show back
on the road (once that arse Haystacks 'as remembered 'ow to play the
bleedin' guitar). We've got a gig in London on March 8th and one in
Sheffield on March 29th. We'll see you there. A big Cheers Gawd Bless
Yer to Sheffield Dave for his help in sortin' the Sheffield gig. The
man 'as bin a diamond I tell yer.
Potential SUPERYOB events are
in the offin'. We're re-negotiating our postponed German shows from
last year at the moment. We're lookin' at doin' 4 shows wiv On File
over the Easter Bank 'Oliday. We're just finalisin' travel arrangements
wiv the promoter and there should be some news in the next few weeks.
We've also bin yakkin' wiv Suck
and Rianne at Die Kastelein
in Bruges about doin' a show over there. Any of you lot who've bin
over will know wot a champion gaff the place is and The 'Yob played
at Live and Loud last year and 'ad a top old time I tell yer.We're
lookin' at May or June and are waitin' for Die Kastelein to propose
a few dates for us.
For the third year in a row
your favourite StreetRock stars 'ave bin overlooked for H.I.T.S in
Morecambe. Now, as you know it's the last one they're doin'. Well,
SUPERYOB might 'ave a little surprise up their sleeves so watch this
space for details. Direct your 'Why ain't SUPERYOB on the H.I.T.S
bill again this year?' questions to the organisers themselves on email@example.com.
The bill is blindin' apart from us.....if you get the chance, check
out Nerf Herder
from the U.S.A. They're my tip of the weekend.
Haystack and 'is bruvver are
orf to Boston U.S.A on Feb 5th to sort out some shows for SUPERYOB
possibly in June. We've spoken to some contacts who are promoting
shows in New York, Boston, Connecticut and Rhode Island. They are
up for havin' the 'Yob over for a bit of a blast. Watch this space
for news. Oh, and Haystacks is also goin' on the piss wiv THE
DROPKICK MURPHYS. They are in the studio as we speak thrashin'
out a new album (get 'old of their last live album...it's a bleedin'
belter...) when they're not in the pub, so expect big things from
them soon. A big Cheers Gawd Bless Yer to Matt Kelly from the Dropkicks
for 'is continued interest and support in SUPERYOB and also for probably
havin' that dollop Haystacks snorin' on 'is sofa.
Still got plenty of merch available...check
out the MERCH page
Quick mention of some gigs Lee

Sunday 2nd Feb - Peter & Test Tube Babies

Chipshop sends you all his love...especially
the ladies 'e tells me. He's bin up in Stokie of late, boozin' wiv
'is former SECTION 5 amigos. They're wadin' through recordin' their
new album and aren't missin' Chipshop at all apparently...that is
til it's 'is round I spose. He's also got 'is big fat fingers in many
pies (literally) as per usual and can be found frequentin' the bar
at many a London punk rock show.Go up to 'im and offer to buy 'im
a pie and a pint.....'e will love you forever...
Ace and Haystacks 'ave bin doin'
stuff wiv their other project ACEFACE.
It also features ex members of SUPERYOB and KLASSE KRIMINALE. They've
done some gigs, bashed out a promo and are soon to release a debut
album. Check out their website for details.
A big Cheers Gawd Bless Yer
to Degz for 'is continued 'elp wiv all this clever computer stuff.
See the LINKS page for 'is
own 'omepage link....
Wot wiv stuff 'appenin' again
now, I shall be back on the case wiv the site. I'll update the other
features and stuff shortly and keep you updated wiv news and what
One final big Cheers Gawd Bless
Yer to everyone who's kept mailin' us and sayin' hello and seein'
wot we're up to. We're back on track now, so 'ere's to a top 2003.
Cheers.....Frankie, Ace, Haystacks
No, I ain't bin bein' lazy...there
just ain't been a lot 'appenin. Frankie has been away in the land
of the mooses (sounds a bit like bleedin' Dartford) for over six weeks
now and in 'is absence fings seemed to 'ave slowed down a bit. We've
bin discussin' the album release wiv a few record companies but I'm
sure you'll be as surprised as me when I tell yers that no one 'as
bit our soddin' 'and orf yet. Ace reckons that faced wiv the undoubted
Street Rock Masterpiece of the decade, they're all too worried about
releasin' it. Never fear kids, we'll keep you updated as 'ow fings
Gig-wise there 'ain't a lot
about either. We've put back our trip to Germany until next February
at the earliest and other enquiries into gigs we've made 'aven't come
up trumps. Our Christmas Party has unfortunately been put off. The
venue we wanted wasn't available and we 'ad trouble tyin' all the
parties down for the date suggested. Never mind...we might sneak a
quickie in somewhere in South London around Christmas anyway....
We're 'opin' to get over to
Die Kastelein in Belgium early next year ans Chipshop is workin' on
a gig in Central London planned for February. We're still talkin'
to a couple of venues so we might be poppin' out for a jolly up somewhere
in the country before Christmas. Watch this space. Quick TA to Sheffield
Dave for bein' permanently on the look out for gigs for us up in the
Midlands and beyond....TA MATE !!!
Talkin' of jolly ups, I'm plannin'
to go over to Boston wiv me bruvver next February to go on the piss
a bit wiv them 'erberts THE
DROPKICK MURPHYS. Big TA to Matt from the band for his help and
support and I can 'eartily recommend the new DROPKICKS album - Live
On St. Patrick's Day. Matt is down under wiv the band at the moment
and 'as promised me a postcard ....again.
I've put a couple of new pics
up on the PHOTOS page. They
came from Oddy of Resistance 77 and were taken at our gig wiv 'em
back in August. Ta mate. Check out the new improved Resistance
77 website. 'Ave a butchers at the photos and drop both bands
a line to say who you reckon is the most 'andsomest. I'll give you
a clue....WE ARE!!!!. Contact R77 on email@example.com
and e-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frankie 'as got another couple
of 'is POSTCARDS FROM THE
POLE on the way so 'e tells me. I'll whack 'em up when I get 'em.
See the Postcard page for a transcript of an interview wot Frankie
has just done for the Part Time Punk 'zine. It's a must for anyone
interested in musical 'istory and wot Frankie-Boy got up to in 'is
youth. 'E's also promised me some searin' prose on wotever subject
'as got up 'is nose recently. I know 'e's just finishin' some more
interviews an' all so we do like to keep 'im busy when 'e's orf gallavantin'..
Check out ACE'S
SOUNDS OF YESTERYEAR for a couple more classics
reviewed by our recent walkin' encyclopaedia of rock...not 'arf.
Sorry there ain't bucketfulls
of stuff 'appenin' that I can tell yers about...we'll be back fightin'
fit in no time at all.
One last little fing. Check
out the ACEFACE page for
news of wot Haystacks and Ace are up to in their little side project.
Ta Ta for now.
Just a quickie. Got our first
letter back today from a record company politely declinin' the offer
to put out this years StreetRock masterpiece. It was from COPRO Records.
No, I ain't 'eard of 'em either. Must 'ave been an attempted brainwave
by Ace methinks. I looked up their website only to dicover it's a
flippin' death metal label with bands like Acid Death, Desecration
and Seizure. Cor blinky blimey!!!!!
A quick link 'ere to me old
mucker Steph - roadie supreme for ON FILE. 'Avin' seen the bloody
masterpiece of modern literature wot is THE
DUNDEE DIARY, 'e thought 'e'd 'ave a bash
'imself. Check out THE
DEUTSCHLAND DIARY on the ON FILE website.
If you really have nothing else to do you could always have a look
at the rest of ON FILE's website.
Well anuvver 2 weeks 'ave gorn
by and I spose you reckon I'm gonna come back wiv the usual excuse
and promises about wot I should've done but I ain't....well bugger
me, if I ain't worked me chuff orf to get a fair old dollop done for
yers. Check out the PHOTOS
page for some new additions. Check out a couple
of new additions to POSTCARDS
FROM THE POLE. I got some postcards from Frankie in Norway
but 'e forgot to bleedin' write anyfink on 'em so I've added a few
witty words of me own. Further postcards have been promised from the
new North American correspondent for Graffiti. I have enrolled Mr.
Matt Kelly from Boston's finest THE
DROPKICK MURPHYS to keep you lot furnished
with updates from 'is travels. First one should be due very soon.
As you 'ave a little meander
through the site, you'll notice that I've finally managed to get some
bits to move about. It took me a while and it ain't bloody brilliant
but I'm well 'appy that sumfink finally moves about a bit. When Degz
comes back from 'is hols and I track down Rubber Jonny I'll get some
more tuition and it should 'opefully get a bit better.
I've added a fair few reviews
SOUNDS OF YESTERYEAR. Get yer arses down
there and be educated about music in Ace's uncompromising style.
Brand new page is the REVIEWS
page. 'Ere I've collected various reviews from
fanzines and webzines together so's you can 'ave a good old butchers
at wot people 'ave been saying about the promo
samplers wot we sent out from the new album earlier on in the year.
Also it's for nice people from record companies to read when they
get ready to offer to put out 'GHETTO BLASTER'.
Me and Ace 'ave pretty much
sent out all the first wave of promos to the record companies - over
30 in this go. As feedback starts to come in, I'll keep you posted.
That stout fellow Carlo from BRUTUS
RECORDS 'as been enquirin' already.
Gig-wise we're still finalizing
a few shows for the next couple of months. Frankie is away at the
moment but we're perseverin' in his absence to sort out shows for
yers. I spoke to the man 'imself about half hour ago between sets
and 'e sends 'is regards to everyone. Head on down to the GIGS
page to read reviews of some of the best gigs
wot we've done in the last year or so. I've
still got to finish that one orf, but that won't be long comin' honest
Other fings to update will be
the YOB page with a proper SUPERYOB discography, lyrics and band members
profile and also a revamp of the front page wiv some more movin' bits
'opefully. We've got some more photos in the offin' and Frankie is
workin' on 'is SOAPBOX page where 'e will be tacklin' issues of the
day in 'is own inimitable style.
Any questions, complaints or
suggestions are most welcome. Send them to email@example.com.
Right I'm orf to bed cos me
eyes 'ave gorn square.
Heard from Frankie today. 'E's
put some postcards in the mail for me. Apparently 'e's had Norway's
top 'eavy metal band joinin' in 'is songsongs in 'is piano bar. They're
called Glucifer or summink....cor blimey...
Also 'eard from Sheffield Dave
wiv details of a potential gig in sunny Doncaster at a gaff called
The Leopard. I'll 'ave a chinwag wiv the geezer there this week and
let yers know wots appenin'
Well, I've got plenty of news
for you to bring you all right up to date. First off, all our recordin'
and remixin' is done. That means when we get our record contract all
that is left is the final masterin' and we have SUPERYOB album number
3. The workin' title is still 'GHETTO BLASTER' and the revised track
listin' is as follows:
BANG TO RIGHTS
TOWER BLOCKS AND TENEMENTS
FRIDAY ON MY MIND
KIDS ARE ALRIGHT
LOVE US HATE US
'Vicious Circle' is a re-recordin'
of the song originally available on the now very much sought after
'FREE' e.p and any of yers who've seen us live through the year might
'ave 'eard 'Bang To Rights', 'Heartbreak Bridge' and 'Smacktrash'.
For a little taster of how rock-tastic the sound of the new album
is, shoot on down to the AMP
page and be bloody amazed.
Any astute devotees of 60s music
will spot the cover which has crept onto the list. 'Friday On My Mind'
by The Easybeats has been well and truly given the SUPERYOB treatment
and hopefully gives a bit of flavour about wot we're about. It was
done at our recent covers session at CYBERSOUND studios in Deptford,
South London. Wot wiv the one track wot we've whipped off the album
session and the other 3 we did at the covers session, we're left wiv
2 SUPERYOB originals ('Rock'n'Roll Ghosts' and 'Rock'n'Roll Revolution'
- hey, we just love rock'n'roll here kids!!!) and 2 covers. The other
covers we can reveal are a Small Faces absolute bleedin' classic and
a real rework of a lesser known Slade song . We're particularly chuffed
with how the Slade tune came out I tell yer. Again, we must thank
Stifford from the DEATH
VALLEY SURFERS for standin' in on bass in Chipshop's absence.
Though unable to pie-up to the big man's standards he still did a
great job. Ta mate.
Talkin' about record contracts
as we were, this weekend I've just finished off the YOBPACKS which
are being sent out to a very lucky collection of record labels next
week.When we sent out demo CDs earlier in the year to Fanzines and
Webzines a few record companies got a sniff of wot was about but we
thought we'd let 'em sweat for a bit before we gave 'em a taste of
wots on offer. We're contactin' record companies from the UK, Europe
and also U.S.A. and as feedback comes back from 'em I'll keep yers
We 'ad a photo sesh the other
week wiv' Ace's mate Dave down in deepest darkest Blackfen. Full colour
masterpieces, they show off just how stylish and 'andsome we really
are. As soon as I've finished tarting about wiv' 'em on the old computer,
(Gotta enhance beer belly's) I'll whack 'em up so's you can 'ave a
Next bit of news is that we've
gorn an' done some more merchandise. We've now got new SUPERYOB T-shirts,
SUPERYOB mugs and SUPERYOB enamel painted metal badges. See the MERCHANDISE
page for details and 'ow to get 'old of the buggers. All orders that
come in pronto will get some free SUPERYOB pin badges courtesy of
Matt K. from Boston. SUPERYOB footie scarves are still gonna 'appen
as soon as we get enough dosh to soddin' well pay for 'em.
Now I don't s'pose for a minute
that any of you (Chipshop included) missed The Sex Pistols show at
Crystal Palace a few weeks ago. Well. 'ow many of you spotted that
the drummer from excellent support band DROPKICK
MURPHYS was sportin' a SUPERYOB t-shirt? Now, I've bin
in touch wiv' Boston's finest Celtic Oi!-sters and who knows - there
might well be some devopments there next year. They recorded wiv those
rascals The Business, so they certaiinly know their stuff. Keep 'em
One more bit of news on the
recordin' front is that Benny from Anti-Social Behaviour 'zine 'as
finally managed to get out 'is debut compilation CD on 'is Anthemic
Records label. Now, if I tell you that it's called 'Strength Of The
Nation', that might give you a bit of a clue as to why I'm mentioning
it. Yes, folks, your favourite StreetRock chums are not only featured
on the album but provide the title track. For the uninitiated, 'Strength
Of The Nation' featured on the debut SUPERYOB album AGGROPHOBIA. See
for 'ow to get a copy. If anyone wants to drop Benny a line about
the album bung 'im a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org..
Alternatively, check out all about his fanzine and record releases
on his website: www.streetpunk.fsnet.co.uk/benny/.
Gig news next. We ain't got
nuffink for the rest of September I'm afraid, but we're in the process
of finalisin' some shows for October, November and December. Frankie's
workin' away for the rest of this month so that's why we're a bit
quiet. Other gig news is that our intended trip over to Germany has
been put back until early next year. This is due to venue availablity
problems in Germany and also band member holiday obligations for both
us and our chums ON FILE. Proposed dates from the promoter are the
end of February or the middle of April.
Other little snippets are that
Hedgy from ON FILE has been talkin' to all those 'erberts up there
in Norway about gettin' The 'Yob up there for their annual Christmas
beer and music festival called JÜLEBLOT. If that comes off we'd
be well chuffed as apparently they do enjoy a sherbert or two up there.
Also we've been approached to perform at the Hemsby Scooter Rally
in Norfolk in November. Big SUPERYOB TA'S to Robin at Chelmsford S.C
for his help there. As more details come in I'll fill you in.
We're also makin' inroads into
organisin' our SUPERYOB CHRISTMAS DO for this year. The venue will
likely to be in South-East London and will again feature ourselves
and an outrageous Glam Rock party act. Date is likely to be early
We're waitin' confirmation of
shows around the country. Areas we're workin' on are Suffolk, Staffordshire,
Notts and Yorkshire. I've also bin talkin' to promoters in the 'Ome
Counties, the Midlands and South Wales. I've also sent Lord Chipshop
of Piechester out to maximise 'is punk rock contacts and see wot 'e
can come up wiv. Watch this space. Check out the GIGS
page regularly for all the latest...
One other fing while we're talkin'
about gigs is that Lee M. who promoted our show at The Rifleman in
Hounslow last month, 'as sorted out some more shows. Those confirmed
Friday 25th October - Beerzone
plus 2 local support bands
Saturday 9th November - Splodgenessabounds
plus local support
Friday 6th December - The Vibrators
plus local support
Venue address is The Rifleman,
50 Hanworth Road, Hounslow, Middlesex TW3 1UF.
We 'ad a top night there so
if the gaff becomes a regular venue for punk nights then we'll all
be 'appy. I know Lee's doin' a fair bit of work down there and if
anyone 'as any enquiries about wot 'e's doin', send 'em to us at
email@example.com and I'll pass 'em on to 'im. We'll obviously
be back down there sometime an' all.
I 'ad a trot up to the old Leeds
Festival the other week and thought I'd better mention the cream of
punk rock wot I saw when I was up there, 'cos I know you all wanna
keep up to date on wot's 'ot and wot 'ain't. Now, I like me American
type punky stuff, but the place was full of bleedin' spikey little
12 year olds worshippin' Sum Bloody 41. It's all gone a bit too poppy
and 'punk by numbers', but there were still a few bargains to be found.
Top band of the weekend were the mighty NOFX who actually managed
to play some songs between all the gags, anecdotes and slander. Watch
out for their new song 'Idiot Son Of An Asshole' about George Nuke
Other quality performances came
from Guns'n'Roses, Ash, Less Than Jake, Goldfinger, Fenix TX, No Use
For A Name and The GetUp Kids. Good old British punk was well represented
by Capdown, Lightyear and Jesse James. My tip for the top was a New
Zealand band called The Datsuns: a punked up shouty version of the
bastard kids of AC/DC.
Average performances came from
Offspring and The Hives and 'Bucket Of Shit Award' went to Rival Schools.
Other bands worth a mention were Reel Big Fish and Drag Strip Racer.
Quick WOTCHA to Ste, Dawn, Quince
and all the inmates at Oi! The Campsite at the Leeds Festival. Ste
promoted our show at The Studio in Hartlepool earlier this year and
I bumped into him staggerin' boozily 'ome on the Sunday night. TA
for the beer and company chaps.
Well, all that's left is for
me to tell yers about wot new stuff I've put on the site. I've finally
REVIEW PAGE up for yers. It's where Ace let's you have
'is views on various genres of popular music over the last 30 or 40
years. He pulls no punches when it comes to music I tell yer (just
ask Steph and the On File boys) and the bloke don't 'alf know 'is
stuff. Read 'is page and be enlightened. I've got plenty more to put
I've done a bit of work on the
page too. I've gone back and waffled a bit about wot gigs we've done
over the last year or so. See wot yer missed or relive those rock-tastic
times spent wiv The 'Yob live. I've still got a couple more to do
but they'll be up soon. Frankie 'as promised some more correspondence
for me for 'is POSTCARDS
FROM THE POLE page. If anyone wants to send us interestin'
postcards from their travels feel free. Postal address is SUPERYOB
P.O Box 26535, London SE3 9WS. Weird and wacky and interestin' please:
I'll luz out some merch prizes for good uns.
I'm also gonna put up some song
lyrics for yers - probably on the YOB
page. I'll sneak out some of the songs orf of the new album so yers
can 'ave a decko at the quality songwritin' wot'll be in the shops
One other fing'll be a collected
review page. I've bunged 'em all in 'ere when I've tracked 'em down,
but if I collect all the links together you, dear web browser, will
find it easier to read about 'ow chuffin' fab our songs are and 'ow
superpunkrock our live shows are. I'll also make sure you can check
out the rest of the sites wot they're on.
Have a strollpast the YOBGRUB
page. There's some new bits and pieces on there from our travels.
I've got some more PHOTOS
to put up from live shows: I'll do that this week.
Final thing is an apology for
bein' a lazy bastard and not keepin' the site up to date. I'm back
in the swing now so the updates will be more regular and new stuff
will be flyin' through.
Well bugger me if it ain't bin
nearly a month since I've done anyfink. I'm truly ashamed of myself.
We've done a fair bit as a band but I've just bin flippin' lazy. I've
got meself a new job involvin' beer (not bad eh?), I've 'ad a week
orf to knacker meself workin' outside in our temporary British heatwave
and I've managed to put on about four stone stuffin' all mattter of
beer and pies down me greg in the meantime.
Two big bits of news are the
gig wot we did at the beginnin' of this month and the recordin' wot
we sneaked in just before it. The gig was a jolly old affair. I'll
put a review up on the GIGS
page when I get a chance before I forget.
Lowercasej were a top opening band
and they played really well. They're only young and they were a bit
nervous so I'm glad they had a good show. Well done Matt and the boys.
77 were fuckin' awesome. I'd been lookin' forward to seein'
'em since the 'Retaliate First' album and they were super tight and
rock-tastic.Cheers to Oddy, Kieron, Ellis and Mushy for makin' the
trip down. A great bunch of lads. Oddy done some photos too and a
bit of a video so I'll let yers know if we get our 'ands on 'em.
The recordin' session was a
bit 'swings and roundabouts'. We got it all done but we 'ad a bit
of a problem with the guitar sound so there has been a bit of faffin'
about post-recordin' to bring it all up to scratch. Of the 4 songs,
one of the covers stands out as a rock masterpiece (in our 'umble
opinions), the other two simply rock in the SUPERYOB style and the
new 'Yob song 'Rock'n'Roll Revolution' is a further example of our
'Melody with Balls' style of sound. Sorry we can't be more specific
wiv wot we've actually recorded, but until the whole album is nailed
down and the runnin' order sorted, we've got to keep our 'ats on wot
will also be available apart from the album itself.
On the album front, I'm just
puttin' the finishin' touches to the contents of the YOB-PACKS wot
will be sent to record companies. Tomorrow evenin' we're havin' the
official photo sesh and once I've knocked up the flash covers to the
CDs and added a bit of blurb, we should be rollin'. Ace 'as bin workin'
on the 'YOB image so we're all dressin' up proper to love the camera.
Any out-takes I'll let you see 'em.
Check out the new SUPERYOB merch
on the MERCHANDISE
page. I 'ad me first Flash lesson wiv Degz last
week and you can see the results 'ere. One bit at a time:- it will
get better I assure you.
Check out the new addition to
page from Frankie on his hols to the West Country.
I know I keep rattlin' on about
wot I intend to do and I never get round to it, so I'm gonna keep
schtum this time and surprise you all very soon wiv new and updated
pages, more photos and more flashy movin' bits. My apologies for bein'
a lazt fat bastard.
Check out this link from that
charmin' fella Flavio on 'is Italian website. 'E 'as some nice fings
to say about us and 'as reviewed the promo. www.skinheadrock.com.
Fair old bit of news for you.
First of all check out the beginning of our new page. FRANKY'S
POSTCARDS FROM THE POLE 'as finally made an appearance.
'As 'e get's out and about on 'is travels 'e's promised to keep me
filled in on wot 'e get's up to. This usually involves freezin' 'is
knackers off, fallin' down ski slopes and gettin' chased by reindeer
up there in chilly Scandanavia. 'Ave a butchers.
I've jazzed up the MERCHANDISE
page a bit and there is some top news for yers on there too. Git on
We went into the rehearsal studio
last week to polish orf the songs for the recordin' session this weekend.
All went swimmingly and Chipshop's stand-in for the weekend, STIFFORD,
Me and Ace went down to Hounslow
to see the venue we're playin' at next weekend. We met up wiv Lee
and 'is missus and bought them beer. The venue is a good old traditional
pub type joint....low ceiling, black walls and plenty of room to 'ave
a crackin' jolly up. The landlord Steve is a fine upstanding fellow
- 'e's even send the P.A speakers orf to the menders ready for next
week. Both support bands are sorted and we're rarin' to go. (See GIGS
page for details).
We've finally nailed down a
potential mini-tour in Germany for the second week in November. M.A.D
Touring were too busy wiv 29 bands on the go at the moment so another
promoter, OLI, is doin' the honours. 'E runs 'is own label and has
a few German bands under 'is wing and also puts on tours for bands
from Eastern Europe. We're gonna go over wiv our muckers On
File and probably do 4 shows in Southern and Eastern Germany,
finishin' up wiv a big bash at Wild At Heart in Berlin. More developments
as I get 'em...
I'll 'ave another crack at the
site tomorrow and get some stuff done wot I've bin promisin' for ages.
Some little bits of news for
ya... Check out the new MERCHANDISE
page set up. I've got a bit to do on it but I'll finish it off wiv
some tip top tastic news about new merch which will be available soon.
The run up to the gig next month
at Rifleman in Hounslow is runnin' tickety-boo (See GIGS
page for details). RESISTANCE
77 are looking forward to comin' down and Matt from lowercasej
got in touch the other day to say him and the lads are rarin' to go
an' all. Me and Ace are poppin' down to the gaff this weekend to check
it all out and meet up with Lee who's helped us organise the gig.
I've bunged a CD to the local rag down there and the geezer seemed
quite interested in comin' down and reviewin' the night...
Gig wise elsewhere, we're quite
close to sorting out some dates in October over in Germany. Chances
are we'll pop over wiv On
File and do maybe 4 or 5 dates finishing off in Berlin
wiv a show promoted by M.A.D.
Check out one small addition
We're back in the rehearsal
studio tomorrow to nail down the 4 tracks for next weekends recording.
We're doin' 3 covers and one new song wot me and Ace wrote only last
week called 'Rock'n'Roll Revolution'. One cover will go onto the new
album and we'll save the other 3 tracks for maybe a 7" single
or sumfink. Chipshop stand in for the recordin' will be my old mucker
from London punk-a-billy band The
Death Valley Surfers. Don't worry kids, Chipshop is just
having a weekend pie break and he'll be back in the swing by the gig
on August 3rd.
Spoke to Frankie earlier on.
He's got some new photos to put up and he's got some bits of 'is own
fine prose to put up too. He's also promised me the first of his 'Postcards
From The Pole' where he gives us snippets of life in the rock'n'roll
fast lane of the Arctic Circle.
Other news is that we're plannin'
another photo shoot soon to do promo stuff for record companies and
maybe for the new album. Me and Ace are still trying to sort out more
UK gigs for the end of the year - in the Midlands and the North East.
I'm 'avin' a Friday orf from
the pub this week to get meself sorted so 'opefully this time next
week I'll 'ave loads more news for yers and some new look pages too.
Must grab Degz for them flashy bits...................
Just a quickie......check out
some luvverly stuff done by Steve at the following link: a gig advert,
a very generous review of the promo and a rather dashin' photo of
Well, I've finally finished
DIARY and if I dont say so me bleedin' self, it's an absoute
bonkers bloody literary masterpiece. Wot started orf as a liitle feature
on our trip away the other month turned into Lord Of The Soddin' Rings.
Still, I enjoyed writing it and I 'ope you've enjoyed readin' it.
One final ta to everyong who made us feel so welcome on our jaunt.
We're back in the studio later
tonight so I'll let yers know 'ow that went tomorrow. Imminent website
chores are sort out the GIGS page and begin ACE'S REVIEWS PAGE. Spookily,
we 'ad a request for an ACE review of an old Mott The 'oople album
and it was one of the first ones wot 'e'd done. Blimey eh?
We've done a bit of work on
merch and we should 'ave some news on that score for yers next week
and hopefully some more gigs sorted too.
Good news good news my little
YOBS and YOBETTES. We finally got confirmation last night of the other
support band for our gig at The Rifleman in West London on August
3rd. Anyone wiv their fingers on the pulse of street rock'n'roll will
not fail to be impressed by the addition of RESISTANCE
77 to the bill. Their album 'Retaliate First' is one of the
top offerings of the last few years and they are fresh back from some
shows in Germany. Check out their website on http://www.resistance77.co.uk
As I've mentioned before, the
other support for the night comes from a young punk rock band from
Reading called lowercasej. Their
We're back in the rehearsal
studio next Wednesday for the first time in a while to start knockin
the set into shape and to sort out our cover songs for recordin' at
the end of July.
Wotcha. I've gone and knocked
up the old YOBGRUB
page for yers. 'Ave a decko.......If anyone's
got recommended eateries wot you reckon Chipshop should mention on
the page then let us know about 'em.
Bits wot I'll attend to next
week are the GIGS page and finishing off the DUNDEE
DIARY. I've also got a treat for you. Ace being an officionardo
on all fings musical 'as kindly agreed to do 'is REVIEWS page. This'll
be where he discusses major albums in the history of rock'n'roll in
his own uncompromising style.It promises to be varied and no doubt
controversial. As it takes off, we'll try and get some input from
all you out there on the YOBSWEB. Perhaps you can suggest classic
cds for Ace to review. Drop 'im a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another review for you. Big
CHEERS to Marco at NFT for this one. http://www.nofrontteeth.co.uk/index2.html
'Ello, 'Ello, Ello....Tonight
news is that we have confirmed our gig for August the 3rd. The venue
is The Rifleman in Hanworth Rd in Hounslow, Middlesex. Support is
and possibly one other to be confirmed. I'll put up more definite
details soon as...wiv directions, times and wot not. A big Superyob
CHEERS to Lee M. who has been a top chappie in helping us organise
You know wot that means: I'll
'ave to tidy up the bleedin' GIGS page now. I got a bollockin' off
Ace last week so now that we've got a gig to put on it at last I can
make it all groovy.
Other titbit on the gigs front
is that we've been talking to a promoter in Germany about us doing
4 shows there later in the year. He put on some shows for On File
there last year and they reckon they 'ad a tip top time. This is dependant
on any arrangement wot we make wiv M.A.D
Tour Bookings in Germany. If you remember. we'd discussed
doin summink wiv 'em in October. We ain't 'eard nuffink cos' they've
bin well busy wiv other stuff and festivals and what 'ave yer. I've
tried to re-open negotiations so we can sort out summink definite
one way or the other. Watch this space. I've bin talkin' to promoters
and venues up and down the country about shows and as soon as summink
is deff-o you'll all know about it.
Reviews are still tricklin'
in. A couple 'ere for yer....CHEERS to Mat from Noise Bleed for this
and CHEERS to Estrella and Xose from Camden Town for this little beauty:
We've booked some provisional
studio time for doin' our covers sesh at CYBERSOUND
wiv Alan. These are July 27th and July 28th. Fing is, the Saturday
is the Sex Pistols gig at Crystal Palce and Chipshop reckons 'e might
be goin'. That means we might need a stand in bass player for a live
run through of the songs on Saturday afternoon. If anyone fancies
it, drop us a line at email@example.com.
We might also be auditioning for the YOB CHORUS CHOIR if you've got
a free Sunday evenin' in South London. Peanut need not apply.......
Talkin' of Chipshop, I spoke
to him last night. His review of HITS Dublin is as follows:-
"It were alright"
He sold no SUPERYOB t-shirts
while 'e was there but did pie 'imself up to extremes. Oh, and he
had an ale or 2. 'E's stuck in Stoke (that sounds like a song title
to me....."I was stuck in Stoke.........") wiv 2 knackered
motorbikes to fix but says 'e should be back in the smoke early next
week to attend to his YOBGRUB
page and perhaps lower 'is Royal Pieness to 'ave a practice wiv the
Done some more of the DUNDEE
DIARY for you. There are loads of pics in there wiv the
latest thrillin' installment. Only one more chapter to go......check
it out now !!! I've started the YOBGRUB
page but it's well in need of some contruction. Bear wiv me and I'll
'ave summink up next week...I've left an endearin' image there for
now..'ave a look.
One quick bit of news is that
2 people videoed our gig at The Studio in Hartlepool. Me and Frankie
are tryin' to get copies and then wiv a bit of Degzy magic, we should
have some excerpts up on the site for yerz.
Well we 'ad a little meetin'
last night so I've got a bit of new for yers. Unfortunately Frankie
has got to work through most of August, so our planned jaunts about
the country will 'ave to wait till September. This ain't too bad 'cos
we're hopefully up for going over for a few gigs in Europe in October
so we might get a bit of momentum goin'. We've pretty much sorted
a gig for August 3rd. The venue is The Rifleman in Hounslow and we
will be playing with 2 other bands. One will be a young punk band
from around Reading called Lowercasej
and the other will hopefully be a more established band who you'll
all 'ave 'eard of. This is all to be put to bed hopefully within the
next couple of days when Frankie finally confirms. As any gigs are
deff-o, I'll tidy up the gig page and whack 'em in there.We're also
plannin' a Christmas spectacular again. Anyone who see us down at
Gravesend last year will 'ave marvelled at The
Glambusters so we're gonna try and get them again this
year. The venue will probably be somewhere nearer to London so it's
Final potential gig news is
that Frankie is gonna try and organise a 3 or 4 date jaunt to Norway
for the end of the year. He's played over there loads and 'as got
some good connections. Watch this space..
Next thing up was merch. As
we're nearly out of our present run of Aggrophobia T-shirts, we're
gonna do another limited run to keep 'em tickin' over. They will 'ave
a small design change and be available in different colours to the
old white ones. Other merch ideas we're lookin' into are SUPERYOB
enamel badges, SUPERYOB footie scarves and SUPERYOB mugs. Me and Ace
should be sortin' it out within' the next couple of weeks. I'll update
the MERCHANDISE page
accordingly. If anyone 'as any other ideas for merch or 'as any contacts
wot do good deals, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Big ta to Boston Matt for sendin'
us some SUPERYOB pin badges from the States. When I get 'old of some
Yankee Doodle Dosh, I'll get a load more off 'im to distribute wisely
to discerning Yobs who show an interest. I'll let yers know.
We also decided to do a bit
more recordin' - 'opefully wivvin the next month. Ace has been on
at us for ages to do some Mod/60s/Glam style covers and we've finally
tracked down some suitable material. We'll probably 4 songs:- one
of which will probably go on the new album. As this develops I'll
let you know wot we're doin'.....
I'm gonna make a concerted effort
over the next week or two to sort this site out. The GIGS page needs
doin', I'll bump the old LINKS
up a bit and expand the YOB page. I've made a start on the YOBGRUB
feature and Frankie's gonna drop round some more PHOTOS next week.
Other fings wot I'm gonna add are ACE'S REVIEW PAGE, where your favourite
skinbasher will delve through his substantial and varied record collection
to enlighten you wiv his views on all sorts of popular music. (Steph
fae Dundee watch this space....) and an art-farty collage page wiv
loads of cult images bunged in. I've also persuaded Frankie to do
POSTCARD FROM THE POLE. This will be His Oi-ship sending in e-mail
bulletins from 'is trips to the frozen North. Expect pictures of elks,
reindeer and penguins....
Oh. and Degz 'as got a window
for Flash lessons....can't wait for spangly bits.......
If anyone 'as some recommended
eateries from around the globe....drop us a line and we'll air those
recommendation on Chipshop John's YOBGRUB page. Mail us at Ilovemybleedinscoff@superyob.com.
Chipshop is waitin'.....
Oh, and I must finish the last
thrillin' installment of the DUNDEE
I've put some more PICS
up too....one is not for the squeamish....
Yeah, alright I know I promised
but I've done a bit of it....check out some new LINKS
. I've got Ace round tomorrow for a battle
plan meeting and I've got to pop round and see Degz for a bit of a
lesson on Flash inorder to make the site a bit more .......Flash.....I
s'pose. I wanna try and get some more spangly sorts of text wiv a
few graphics, 'cos I'm a bit embarrassed that other sites 'ave got
all movin' stuff on 'em and we ain't. Technology eh ?
I forgot to give a right on
Superyob 'Well done chap' to Lennox Lewis for jobbin' Mike Tyson at
the weekend. We stayed up for it on the old goggle box and it was
well worth the effort. Although we ain't sure if Lennox is really
English, he did used to live and train in the boozer up the road from
me so it's a bit of a local 'fing. Don't see 'im much these days tho'.....
Go on the England ....a bit
of national pride restored by beatin' the Argies...smashin'. It's
amazin' how the mood of the whole country swings from one extreme
to the other depending on the kick of a football...
Went to The Fleadh in Finsbury
Park in Norf London at the weekend to see the Pogues. Absolutely piss
up jig around orf me 'ead like an idiot tastic.....it never pissed
down, we 'ad loads of cider and Shane (Gawd bless 'im) played a blinder.
The first of Frankie's interviews
is up. Check out http://www.streetpunk.fsnet.co.uk/benny/index.htm
for the wise words of Bruvver Frank 'imself......Cheers to Benny for
the interview. We've also 'ad our first review come in from Sweden.
Ta to Stellan for that one.
August is still lookin' like
bein' the month for our next jaunt onto the road. Ace is poppin' round
on Wednesday and we 'ope to sort a few out. Areas we're lookin' at
playin' are Yorkshire, The Midlands, The North West and Essex/East
Anglia. Keep 'em peeled....
If anyone likes their US Punk
like wot I do (and Ace don't) try and get your mitts on the new No
Use For A Name album fliitin' about cyberspace at the moment. It's
called Hard Rock Bottom and it's naffin' 'andsome. One of my favourite
Just done the third episode
of the DUNDEE DIARY
which includes some stonkin' new photos. Fanks to Paul Hair for the
scans.... I'll put some more trip photos up tomorrow and I'll start
the YOB GRUB page and share some more links wiv yer too......I promise.....
I've finally got round to doin'
the next installment of the DUNDEE
DIARY......'ave a butchers.
We 'ad a 24 hour BBQ booze-up
'ere at Haystacks Towers over the weekend ....start Saturday afternoon
and go right through to pub openin' time of 10a.m on Sunday for the
England match. 2 of the lads went all night without a kip (I got away
with an hour and a half's snoring on the front room floor) and lo
and behold who do we bump into on the way to the old rub-a-dub but
Mickey Drummer from The Business. Durin' the course of England's fairly
average performance he told me all about the HITS Dublin lark.....most
of which I couldn't possibly repeat 'ere.........What I can repeat,
though, is the fact that he'd 'ad a blast of the Superyob promo I'd
given 'im and he was well impressed. There you go kids...it's official...NEW
SUPERYOB MATERIAL ENDORSED BY STREETROCK SUPERSTAR. You read it here
Frankie's back from Norway today
so we'll ave a band meetin' next week to discuss wot we're up to.Fings
on the agenda are sortin' out some new merchandise, plannin' gigs
for August, talkin' to some record companies, recordin' a few covers
and gettin' in for a session or 2 down the rehearsal rooms. Frankie
should 'ave done all 'is interviews by now...I'll put the links up
when I've chased 'im up.
I 'ain't forgotten about the
Yob Grub page. I'll see Chipshop next week and try and get that done.
I'll also try and get some thoughts from His Royal Pie-ness on his
trip to HITS Dublin. Must pop round to see Degz and 'is scanner and
get some more photos up too...
Well, we finally recieved word
that Chipshop returned alive from HITS in Dublin. Apparently Ireland
has been left pie-less. He fared a lot better than some members of
The Business by all accounts. Wait till I see Mickey Drummer down
the old rub-a-dub....
Me and Ace have been sendin'
out more demos. We even found some charmin' blighters in Russia and
Australia to palm off some Yob Tunes to. We're also thinking about
makin August our month for goin' out and about on the road again.
We're finkin' about a weekender type do again....perhaps somethin'
Midlands-ish followed by somethin' a bit more Northern. Ain't decided
yet so we'll let yers know.
I must get round to finishin'
orf me DUNDEE
DIARY before I bleedin' forget what we all got up to. Please
bear with me..
Frankie has bin keepin' in touch
from sunny Norway. He's huddled over a computer in Trondheim with
his teeth chatterin' and 'is knees knockin churnin' out interview
after interview. I'll post details as I get 'em. If anyone has any
messages for Frankie, drop me a line here at email@example.com
and I'll pass 'em on. He'll be glad to 'ear from yer.
Check out the PICS
page for a couple of interesting new bits and pieces...
Vote for Superyob as your fave
new streetrock band at the following site www.angelfire.com/band2/section5/oi4england.html
Got me photos back today from
our jaunt to Dundee and 'Artlepool. Cor blimey, I don't remember takin'
'alf of the buggers. I must 'ave been a bit tired and emotional after
all that drivin'. I'll get Degzy to scan 'em tomorrow and get some
up for you to 'ave a look at. There's plenty of On File lookin' far
too slim and us lookin' far too fat....that's the last time I let
Hedgy loose wiv my naffin' camera....
Got some e-mails from Frankie
somewhere near the Norf' Pole I fink. 'E's wading through 'is interviews
and 'e's 'is normal excited self. Says 'e's been investigating Norwegian
pies.....speakin' of which still no word from Chipshop....
Done the first part of me trip
report....check out the DUNDEE
DIARY page. I'll try and get it done and dusted as soon
as I can, but we packed so much blinkin' fun into those few short
days there's bucketfulls to write (presumin' I can remember it.....)
Ace came round again tonight
to do some recordin' into his magic little 4-track. Songs by The Who,
Slade, The Kinks and The Easybeats were right royally butchered by
the pair of us durin' the course of the evenin'. I 'ope these demos
don't reach the light of day, we'll never live it down....
We've bin gettin' some more
feedback from the promos we've sent out. Reaction is good. As various
sites review it, I'll give you the links so you can 'ave a look yerselves.
Check out the AMP
page for a taster of the songs...
Started me right-up of the trip
to Dundee. It's gonna take me bleedin' ages...I fink I'll do it a
bit at a time like a sort of serial.
We ain't heard back from Chipshop
after 'is trip to Dublin. Maybe 'e's met and fell in love with a nice
little Irish pie and doesn't want to come 'ome...
Got stuck into Bomml's interview....'e
asked for long answers and he blimmin' got 'em I tell yer. Once I
warm the old pinkies up on this keyboard I'm flyin'.....I feel like
Frankie after a 6 hour piano bar gig....
Still in the process of sortin'
out a summer spectacular gig for August wiv' Lee. We're sortin' out
some support bands and have yet to decide on the theme for the evening.
I've had numerous requests to dress up like a bird again (as you can
imagine) but I might try somefing different this time. Once we're
decided on the full itinerary for the evenin' I'll fill you in with
all the details...venue, bands, nearest fast food outlet etc. We're
talkin' M25-ish...as a clue....
Ace popped round tonight .'E's
got some ideas about some new cover versions to plonk into the set
and possibly record. Can't give too much away just yet but think top
60s/70s Mod/Beat toons punked up to the eyeballs. I lost the bleedin'
tape though so we 'ad to adjourn.
Frankie's naffed orf to sunny
Scandinavia again. 'E won't be back till the first week of June I
fink but 'e's wrapped up nice and warm wiv a whole load of interviews
to do. There's a whoppin' great one for Bomml at Oi! The Print in
Austria, one for a chap called Pavel in Czechoslovakia and another
for a Spanish webzine called Naranjito. As they get done, I'll put
up a list wiv links so you can all 'ave a butchers...
Well, we made it !! A 1026 mile
round trip to sunny Dundee (and it was bleedin' sunny an' all) and
back via Hartlepool. Two smashin' gigs, bucketloads of beer and some
new muckers made along the way. Now, obviously, you're all gonna wanna
hear all about it. Fear not, my little 'Yob chums, for I 'ave a plan.
Two, in fact...During the next couple of days I'm gonna write up the
story of the trip on it's own page. We're also gonna 'ave a special
new feature......YOB GRUB. We've all 'eard about these bleedin' Michelin
Guides and Egon Blimmin' Ronay and wot 'ave yer...but what about grub
that appeals to the average man's palate, eh? On our travels we came
across grub of all shapes and sizes....some smashin' and some poop.
We'll give the lowdown on wot's 'ot and wot ain't so if you're out
and about yerself you can have a good old ramp up. The page will be
by our own gastronome....Chipshop John .....bass player and semi-professional
pie taster. If you've got any salubrious establishments which you
think Chipshop should be sampling drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talking of Chipshop, if any
of you lot are out for H.I.T.S in Dublin, you might find the stout
one masquerading as a member of The Warriors. His bass playing skills
are much sought after so we let 'im out for an 'oliday.....as long
'as he brings me back a fridge magnet...
I also took 2 films of top rock'n'roll
photos on our trip away. Soon as I get 'em developped, I'll let you
'ave a butchers.
We'd just like to extend the
hand of friendship to the following chums who made us feel so welcome
on our trip. People invited us scruffy cockneys into their homes without
the slightest regard for their own safety, sanity and sanitation.
Cheers, we'll do the same for you some time....
Steph - for an endless supply
of beer, fried food and lavatories
Hedgy and Debbie - for fine
food and hospitality
On File - Hedgy, Stewart, Pete
and Greig - the finest company and senses of humour......
The Dundee Boys and Girls- all
who made us welcome - all at the gig, Stuart the soundman, Nick on
the Merch, Wee Gordy and his Mini Cheddars, Shep and all at The Westport
Bar. Hi to the Scots guys who came down to the Hartlepool gig and
the drunken rabble at me and Chipshop's aftershow party.
The Fake Partiots and all at
The Studio in Hartlepool.
Wotcha ! Hope you all had a
good May Day - especially if you were up in the centre of London 'avin'
a bit of a riot. Got a mail from good 'ole Matt from Boston regardin'
last night's request for translations. I fink 'e's bin a bit of a
smart arse and bunged 'em on some sort of translation website.....unless
'e speaks cobblers in Spanish and German. 'Ave a little look at wot
'e come up wiv......the German one is a bit of a giggle. Spanish one
first. Ta Matt......
"We have had the opportunity
to listen to promo CD of which it will be the new album of this English
band, and the two songs that appear, "Ghetto Blaster" and
"Bang to the Rights", are worth the trouble. The style to
not changed to anything with respect to its previous work "Machine
Guns and Alchohol", street rock´n´roll of the good
one, with very well-taken care of songs and an excellent sound. If
you want to know on this group, its Web...."
"SUPERYOB: Promo Sampler
CD this first CD have me Frankie Flame&Dave of Superyob zugeschickt..ich
are me that times to listen to and strongly advertisement for it make,
because the volume took straight new photographs and it to look for
now a label, which publishes its third album still this year! I make
Wervung naturally very gladly, because I am a large fan of Frankie
Fleming and a large fan of-good, English Oi! Volume, speak I likes
Superyob just as gladly as ice-cold beer from doses, bottles and also
glaesern! Greatly did not change young also, at least can I from the
two Songs judge however the music eat here still more drink-joyfully,
still more uriger, still and more noecher! The first Song is coined/shaped
by pubigem choir singing with much Ohohohohs., packed in skirt-ends
guitars, under of Frankie Flame's of suesslicher voice. The second
Song Bang ton rights. is over nix more badly, here even with lecker
piano, but in the background grummeln strong guitar-simply the one
would joy-be nevertheless a dishonor, if no good label is there?!?!"
If anyone else fancies 'avin'
a go, drop us a line.....
Well, we've 'ad a few encouraging
replies from some of the promo cds we've sent out already. Various
record companies in the UK and Europe seem a bit interested and a
few on-line 'zines have given us a mention. If anyone can translate
Spanish, hit this link and tell us what Javi 'as said about us will
(Look under MUSICA). If 'e ain't said nuffiunk nice then pretend 'e
'as. If anyone can speak German then do the same for the followin'.
That nice man Bomml said 'e's been complimentary. 'As 'e?. http://www.oi-music.com/OTP_Sites/OTP_Anfang_F.htm
(Look under REVIEWS)
We've also 'ad some nice people
in Italy and the U.S.A offerin' us gigs. Wot wiv talking to M.A.D
about a European jaunt later in the year we might 'ave to put off
the old one-off gig lark for a wee while 'til we get a stonkin' great
record deal and head out on the road for big promotions 'n stuff.
It's a long old trot over the pond for one or two gigs so ideally
we'd like to sort out a well organised tour. If any of you lot want
us to come and play wherever you are, then the best way to do it would
be to try and find details of a tour company or a promoter in your
country who might be interested. Let us know.
Well, we woz back in the old
rehearsal studio again last night. 'Cor blimey, it weren't 'arf 'ot.
Comin together nicely fank you very much...We've got a few surprises
lined up for our gig in Scotland next month. We would recommend that
you all come to Dundee on May 10th to see for yourselves. Finally
received some flyers for the gig from Steph but then had to go and
pick 'em up from the local delivery office 'cos the cheeky bugger
never put enough stamps on the envelope.I phoned 'im to tell him he
was doin' nuffin' to enhance the image of our Caledonian Cousins.
He blubbed a bit but I 'ad to let 'im orf 'cos 'e promised to take
us 'Yobs out for a wee drinkie when we're up in Dundee. Oh, and 'e's
letting me and Chipshop snore like pigs at 'is flat when we're stayin'
up there.......apparently the Scots lassies like the stouter chap
Other news is that we're hopeful
of a bit of a tour lark in October this year wiv M.A.D
in Germany. Drop 'em a line and get us on at a town near you.
Ace is sendin' out more promo
cds over the weekend. We've 'ad a few interested replies from a couple
of record companies to the ones we've 'ad out already and a coupleof
websites that have heard 'em 'ave given us good reviews. I'll keep
you all informed of how our search for a new record deal is goin'.
Check out a couple of soundbites
of 3 new songs for yourself on the
A happy St George's Day to you
all. We 'ope your all enjoying the chipper British weather while it
lasts. Well, we've been back in the rehearsal room again for the first
time in 5 months and it was just like fallin' off a log....bleedin'
painful !!! Took us a wee while to get into the swing but you'll be
glad to know we soon had the old 'Yob sound blasting out good and
proper. We've got a re-shaped set incorporating some material orf
the new album mixed in with all the old classics. Check out the GIGS
page for a few whispers about what else we're up to. We've been burning
promo sampler CDs at a fair old rate. We'll be shipping 'em out next
week to record companies, fanzines, venues and promoters. If you've
got any leads about helping us get what Frankie is already calling
"The StreetRock Album of the Year" - tho' he is a bit biased-
promoted then help us out at email@example.com
