Yeah he was a top bloke, down to earth and a good laugh. It was great to see him being so enthusiastic while watching the set. He was on a bender that night though, so could have been the booze talking. I believe he got thrown out of a pub in London the next afternoon after being on it with us lot that night.

I think it's fair to say that from reading my posts that I'm not sorry wasn't the biggest Russell Martin fan.

Tonight I had the pleasure of listening to him talk to a group of school children at a school sports awards night and what an all round top bloke he is.

Andy B is a top bloke, met him a few times. He's not a priminister though, doesn't have the personality or gravitas.

Sorry to see Jimmy has passed away, he was a real character.

I remember going to his disco in Bournemouth in the 70's. At the time it was the biggest complex in Europe ... it was just huge. Dave Lee Travis used to dj there and once inside you had to have a designated meeting place... if you ever lost your mates ... that was it, you'd never find them again. No mobile phones in them days either...

He worked as a hospital porter in Leeds, ran marathons for charity, and did Jim'll Fix It for many years. In his younger days he was also a professional cyclist and a wrestler. Goodness gracious guys and gals, how's about that then?

Top bloke in my book. RIP Jimmy.

Posted 11 Feb 2008
firstly a massive thanks to the people who attended and supported the first ngt in lutterworth , both me and pat realised we had our work cut out as the first ngt clashed with so many quality venues and with rugby alngtr just down the road which we attended after ours finished [ well done sian ]

the ngt kicked of with john mcclure playing an outstanding monster northern spot and keeping to the J20 ethics of originals only well done mate

following john was ralph from the soul nights in nuneton who changed the tempo to a cracking slice of 70s soul at its best

for my spot i started with x-over went into y2k and ended in the 70s

the main man was following me MR SEAN CHAPMAN if ever you needed a reason to go to a soul ngt sean would be it , he never fails to deliver an outstanding spot top bloke

already looking forward to his return to J20 next year

the ngt finished with pat setting the standard by pulling a brilliant spot out of the bag every thing right up to y2k with some unknown monsters mixed in , well done mate excellent spot

all in all a cracking first ngt we suffered with numbers but we knew we would , new night and loads on around us , we are going to stick to our policy and believe that quality and originality will get the crowds coming in and returning to us

future dates - APRIL 12TH , JUNE 14TH , AUGUST 9TH , OCTOBER 11TH , DECEMBER 6TH

b good shaun

Gareth refers to a person with a large penis. Someone who knows how to satisfy a woman both in the bed and in life.
"Hey Debs, how was that date last night?"

"It was great, he made me cum several times and even made me a cuppa in the morning. I've never been so satisfied. He is so hung. That Gareth is a keeper"

"Wow, I gotta go get me a Gareth"

Let’s hear it for the former front man of Supergrass, the Britpop band that should have but didn’t. His 2012 debut album, Here Come The Bombs, was little more than Supergrass-lite, but his follow-up easily rips up his past and just as effortlessly secures his future. Channeling his maturity, rather than his one time band’s cheeky-chappy personae, Coombes delivers songs that fuse psychedelic/folk balladry (Seven Walls, The Girl Who Fell To Earth), serene soul (To The Wire, Buffalo) and the kind of gently throbbing Krautrock (Detroit, The English Ruse, Needles Eye) that Kraftwerk would surely envy.
