Obviously a lot of other people were impressed by it as the train was PACKED most of the way to Birmingham, but all went well and I EMERGED into Snow Hill, basically the MARYLEBONE to New Street's... well, there IS no station in London or, i would suggest, ANYWHERE that is as horrible as Birmingham New Street, suffice to say i was PLEASED that i was not going to be going there. Instead i RAN upstairs, got my ticket to Stourbridge then RAN back down and hopped about the shuttle that was just arriving.
I was met by Ray at the station and off we drove to his house, with a guided tour of Notable Black Country Sights on the way, of which there are MANY. We got to his house where he was having a Bit Of A Do - parties at Ray's house have been a bit of an Annual Tradition in my ROCKING CALENDAR, and it was lovely to see his FAMILY again and note that their dog Charley has CALMED DOWN and is now just Insistent rather than Shouty- there was MUCH throwing of balls!
We chatted, drank some Organic Beer and, as people arrived, SCOFFED the huge mountains of Vegan Style GRUB that Ray had prepared. It was DELICIOUS, and thus it was a rather STUFFED Hibbett who took to THE GARDEN to do the following:
Hell On Earth
The Peterborough All-Saints' Wide Game Team (Group B)
I Did A Gig In New York
Things'll Be Different (when I'm in charge)
Clubbing In The Week
Do The Indie Kid
The Lesson Of The Smiths
Hey Hey 16K
Boom Shake The Room
It was all very JOLLY, even tho i forgot some of the words to Hell On Earth (I've never played it live before) and everyone seemed to like it - except for Charlie The Dog, who objected slightly to the lack of balls now being thrown, i felt a bit guilty.
Anyway it was soon time to head back into TOWN, where a portion of us popped for a quick PINT in Birmingham City Centre before I said my goodbyes and hopped back on the train to Marylebone. A lovely day in The Midlands!
