Is what I would have shouted if I had won my football coupon that morning. Considering 50p, bet on 10 teams, was going to get me a massive 22grand though, that looked highly fucking unlikely. So although the above statement looks like a great start to the day, it's actually a complete fabrication. The coupon got rolled up into a ball and the cat got to play with it for a while as I gazed out of my window into the sun, lamenting the loss of 22grand that I never had in the first place and let's face it, am unlikely ever to see. Probably for the best really, if I had access to large sums of free cash my enjoyment, and lifespan, would no doubt be very short indeed.
Next up on the bill was Will Johnstone, or The Corvus Experiment/Rook (not sure what the title is!). A single talented musician armed with a guitar. Blasting out gutsy, honest and well written self penned songs, mixed with some reworkings of classic and popular tunes, Will has a particularly powerful voice which is well suited to the choice of tunes he was belting out. I can safely say he more than done enough to keep the crowd entertained throughout his set. I realised he was up against it from the start right enough, as the bar area through the wall were playing the Champions League semi final between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid and this spectacle of football had garnered as much of a crowd as we had at the stage side of the bar. I stayed to watch the act on the stage rather than on the screen though and I'm glad I did as I enjoyed Mr. Johnstone's set thoroughly. Let's face it, as I touched on above, my coupon was gubbed anyway.
I always did have an immature sense of humour though. Bravo Mr. Hellfire, Bravo...
Part Two Tomorrow.
