Pennyroyal Tea

30 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 30th January 2009 at The Royalty in Sunderland. Gigged here for the first time in November and thought it was a class night. Our second visit tonight was even better! Excellent turn out. Loadza room for us and lotza bods giving it some hefty appreciation. Someone even asked me if we did any ‘Rush’? […]

Death Of The Spanish Stallions

20 January, 2009 | Lyrical Snippets

When the still sea conspires an armour. And her sullen and aborted currents breed tiny monsters. True sailing is dead. Awkward instant. And the first animal is jettisoned. Legs furiously pumping. Their stiff green gallop. Heads bob up. Poise. Delicate. Pause. Consent. In mute nostril agony. Carefully refined and sealed over. … Horse Latitudes (The […]

Little Egypt

17 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Saturday 17th January 2009. What a bloody great gig! First time at The Egypt Cottage next to the now redundant Tyne Tees TV Studios on City Road in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The weather was pretty atrocious so I was worried that we may not get a good turnout, plus the pub ain’t exactly town centre and is […]

¿Dónde Está Mi Guitarra?

16 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Market Tavern in Chester-le-Street, Friday 16th January 2009. Great gig at one of the narrowest venues in the North-East (for the audience at least). Chris strangely forgot to bring his bass guitars (Heh! Heh!) so thanks to Lorenzo from The Dark Horses for stepping in with a spare. Another gig where the crowd is […]

Meltdown 2009

12 January, 2009 | Tubesnake News

Never mind The Ropery in Sunderland stopping live music (two gigs lost), just heard that The Pemberton Arms in Cold Hesledon, near Seaham has shut down altogether (four gigs lost). Win some, lose some! Snooze you lose!

The Clarendon in Sunderland, Sunday, 11th January 2009. Class gig yet again at the most intimate venue in the world!

Deep

2 January, 2009 | Lyrical Snippets

It’s closer to dawn than the midnight hour Your misty mind swims in a land locked haze Glimmering flames are stealing the shadows Needle like rhythms seem to pierce your brain You twist and you turn like a meandering river You’re lost in the dance like a shaman possessed The soft touch of warm skin […]
