The ..rocking... Bishops

An excellent night was had on Monday.. a return to the long -ignored Gym , then a few agreeable hours watching the ..weird ..world go by on Canal Street , a drink in the Northern Quarter ,followed by a visit to the suitably squalid and exciting Roadhouse to chat with new band ..Four Foot Solders .. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=4043589 ..who were very friendly and enthusiastic...as the party pics above testify .. The main band ..Jam and Nuggets fans look out.. were The Bishops http://www.thebishopsband.com/ who rocked , jumped and shook about in a 3 man frenzy. [performing to no more than 25 apathetic punters ] and were all hot and sweaty in the dressing room.. as you can see above when I remove the plectrum from the guitarists mouth as his twin looks on ..!! Rock and roll.. Following that I need to read and relax in the garden..and fancy the new book by the Washington Post star reporter http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/25/books/25kaku.html?_r=1&th&emc=th&oref=slogin and his assessment of the current Iraq embarrassment ..aptly named "Fiasco " its a welcoming block of evidence for all the "Blaime America First " brigade...!! Read and weep...
