DEAD LANE CROSS OLD NEWS PAGE 3

Hooray, we had a great day at the Inter-bands Footy Tournament, and CAME LAST!!! The scores in the three matches we played were 0-3, 0-5 and 1-1.
This is what we won :

 

We are very pleased with it, will display it with pride on the wall of the Rehearsal Room, and hope to defend our unbeaten record at next year's tournament. The winners were THE BALLISTICS. Congratulations to them.

The Dead Lane Cross/Skinticket team, (5 plus 2 subs) were: Barney, Ceri, Linden, Terry, Marc, Ray & Ant.

 

Here is the scorer of Dead Lane Cross's only goal, enjoying a
well-earned Fanta Fruit Twist, as is his wont.

And here are a couple of pics of the team relaxing during the tournament:

  


(PROBABLY) THE NEXT APPEARANCE BY
DEAD LANE CROSS
(but hmm, not playing music.....)

On Saturday 11th December, at Bourne Park, Ipswich, from 12 noon until dark, there will be an

INTER-BANDS 5-A-SIDE FOOTBALL THING!!!

This is to raise money for a well-ambitious project to record & release a compilation CD of tracks by bands from the Ipswich area. And because it will be a good laugh. (No admission charge, but contributions gratefully received.)

Dead Lane Cross, much against our better judgement, are preparing to face ridicule & humiliation by fielding a side for the above event... Please come & give us your support, which we will be badly in need of as we are going to be ABSOLUTELY RUBBISH.


DLC go into the studio this coming Thursday (25th November) to record a 5-track demo of very recent material - this will be widely circulated for publicity purposes, and will probably also be available to the DLC Crowd.


Fans' Page from 28th October now in the Gallery.


Had a great time at the Riverside Club gig - Skinticket were ace, and inspired serious mosh. Pics of them in action will hopefully soon appear on their own website, which is awaited with eager anticipation. Many thanks to our friends & fellow-crushers Methods of Punishment, with whom we hope to be doing a considerable amount of gigging before too long.
We wanted to commemorate our friend and hero John Peel at the gig - a One Minute's Silence seemed sort of inappropriate, so we & the other bands opted for a One Minute's Memorial THRASH instead! We were delighted that the noble Moshpit rose to the occasion magnificently.....

Photos from the gig are now in the Gallery, with Fans' Page to follow shortly.....


DLC and their management/admin want to express their sadness & shock at the news of John Peel's death, and their appreciation of all he did for music and for so many bands, including DLC. Living in the same area, several of us have known John & his family for some years, and send our best wishes & sympathy to Sheila, William, Danda, Tom & Flossie.

Had a great time in Wales! The Monkey Bar is a weird & cool venue full of stairs & music. Thanks to the organisers, the sound man, the other bands, and everyone who came up & spoke to us - an ace crowd altogether. The headlining band was Hondo Maclean, and the first band on were Roachville, with whom we have exchanged links (we'd link to HM's site as well, but it doesn't seem to be doing much at the moment). Hondo Maclean's drummer lent Barney his kit, which was rack-mounted & quite differently set up from Barney's so Buzz had to do a bit of homework before the set, but he managed OK & it sounded fine - DLC are much obliged to Hondo Maclean's drummer! And also to Roachville's bass player for letting Terry use his amp - saved us having to lug Terry's bloody great Marshall combo up all those stairs! - and their guitarist for lending Ceri his amp.

 

 

 

 

 

Oops, Barney's fallen off his stool again.....

 

 

 

 

We were well pleased with the response to our set. We hope to play down in that area again before too long, and also hope to bring Roachville up to Suffolk - Suffolk crowd, we think you'd appreciate them, especially those of you who are into Methods of Punishment.
A couple more gigs in Suffolk are likely soon, and we hope to set up another Riverside Club gig in the near future. Looks like we may be going down to Kent in November - and also in November,
