 Mansfield Steampunk Convivial.

    A report from Sherlock's Dog, your on the spot reporter......
    Place..The Intake Club.
    When..29th September.

    What a great place for a convivial I thought as I walked into the club, people patting me on the head and saying "what-ho old thing", very friendly indeed!! There were stalls selling all sorts of goodies from the highest quality leather goods to intricately carved walking staffs (I would say sticks but these were much longer!!) and everything betwixt...
Lady's & Gents...THE COGNEYS

    As for entertainment first on was that mischievous duo The Cogneys with a splendid and hilarious set filled with saucy humour, innuendo and fun (a magnificent pair of Zeppelins!!). Next to tread the boards were my old muckers Gladstone sporting there new mascot James, they played all of our favourites from "The Madness of Tilly Matthews" to "Twisted Lip" through to "The Curse of Tutankhamun" and more besides.The crowd were VERY enthusiastic indeed, by the time they played TMTWNBBFN's "Boilerplate Dan" and the Pistols "God Save the Queen" the crowd were bouncing around most merrily, in fact another song was called Cloud, Paul and Mr Evil gave them a dose of  Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls"...more bouncing about later it was time for Gladstone to depart the stage and on came the wonderous BB Blackdog.

    BB played a storming set with the lovely Demolitia Tribal, which included classics like "Politicians", "Naive Common Sense", "What You Need", the positively naughty "Gimp" and "Speed Dating" as well as new songs such as "The Chicken Song" which whipped the crowd up no end!!

ooohh I say, steady on.....
    All too soon it had to end, but not before Spook Stoker and Dale Rowles had been arrested by what can only be described as a SteamPeeler (or maybe a Policepunk??) but our beautiful female fans (with help from Cloud and Axle) came to our rescue...well nearly!! It was a great night with much fun and merriment, I hope to meet all of my friends, new and old, again very soon (I hope you don't mind me pinching your photos Giles).
A brave rescue attempt from Cloud!

Until next time Gladstonians, I bid you a good day.....
