- Off to see Roni Size tonight!
I used to live on his road in Bristol. Someone broke into his Mercedes whilst in Miami ,we put a bin liner over the window and he came round and had a smoke with us to say thanks.
Was a good time to be in Bristol as Full Cycle were massive then. 1998-2002
WindRush off planet V was always a favourite.

I agree with being in Bristol around then. Me and a couple of mates tried to break into the scene down there as young 20 somethings. Every tuesday we had a ‘liquid’ set in Revolutions, where Roni Size, Krust and Die would come and chill on the sofas listening. Felt epic for us. Also played at lakota, bar latino, dimensions to name a few. We lived opposite Creation, above O’Neils and whenever there was a big gig on there we would set up the after party in the flats. The full cycle guys would make an appearance, as well as a few of the london dnb crowd who were playing the area. They were really good days.Posted 2 years ago
Yeah a mellow 30c or so today….
Got into Perth way earlier than we expected. Sat and had a drink and thought we’d do a bit of a bar to bar wander. After the first drink we literally stumbled across a free music even called WAMFEST. Free gig? Live acts, food, and beer? Saw some brilliant local talent from Stella Donnelly, Lilt and a female garage punk band called Boat Show.
Wandered from there, found a Greek restaurant/bar near to the club. Espresso martinis and ouzo (I was quite drunk by then and thought ouzo was a good idea) and then into the club. I’d remembered clubs to be louder. Like, nose-vibrating, glasses vibrating. Also I’d forgotten that since they stopped smoking in bars and clubs, PEOPLE BLOODY STINK.
Nevertheless. Roni was awesome. Got ridiculously close to him. He’s tiny! But proper good gig. Got in at 430 and now planning a “movie day” with the kids while I recover.

@bradersm ha that’s mad. small world. I’d send you a PM but couldn’t see how on your profile page. yes I met him through a few of my mates from Surrey. you probably know a few of them.They lived around Park Street whilst we were up in Montpelier. I see a few of them now and then at weddings and we usually end up talking about house parties in Bristol etc. All of my records are in storage and I haven’t moved them up from my old house yet. I’ve got to get on it and sort that.Posted 2 years ago
