Ok so after have the chance to get up to Uberstaff and meet all the loverly Irish folk that went, ive decided that they are all so nice that they should be visited very soon.



If not only to steal more staff trix wink



So far they have kindly offerd places to stay, but are not sure on numbers but we are all grown ups and ive started this here so we can be a little organised.



Im thinking the weekend of the 17th June we fly over and come back on the Monday , then we can have much harcore spinnage on sat and sunday along with much tea drinking and doobie making smile



Call it a tribute to Uberstaff cool



So what i would like to know is who in ireland can make it to Dublin that weekend, and who in the Uk wants to come with me biggrin



So far the list of the UK attacking team is:



Frodo

2bags

Strugz

Dunc (in spirit)

Birgit

MCP

Skully

Vixen

Nate



So any other takers? flying from gatwick return will be max 40 if we book in next few weeks! smile the earlier we can decide the cheaper it will be!



Let the dissciussion begin weavesmiley

I have an objection to a certain video'd bit being used biggrin

But I think you will probably ignore me, so I'll just shut up smile

As for the music... I would avoid trad stuff where possible - don't know about everyone else, though.

What about Therapy? or the Undertones? Teenage Kicks is a classic smile And I suppose there's always some cheesy U2 for good measure.

Thanks for all the work hug

Getting to the other side smile

Kila is a superb irish trad group but its not your average run of the mill diddly dye.

look for an album called Lemonade and Buns... theres a few more the names allude me. Fabby would know...

Luna Park is my fav album, but perhaps that's just me....

Tg go bog is another smasher

it's contemporary trad. like ado said, not your average skiddledy diddley eye trad, there's lots of percussion, it's lovely music to spin to. most of their tracks are sung "as gaeilge" (in irish) too so it would fit the vid beautifully ubblove


but that's just my opinion.

i've no way of getting the music to you though, unless i post you my cds...

could you have a look and see if you can download some of it somewhere and have a wee listen and see what you think?
