Hey, my thread publicising the gig at the Sun this Sunday by Thin Ice (me and Gifford) has a title that could be read in a different light following the discussion in this thread!! It reads as follows:

"Sir Roger in PTH replacement shock"


If it is any help I could supply a photo of me from 25 years ago in which I look very much like Pete - tall, thin, dark haired(with a touch of grey. Would need to work on the guitar skills though. At least I'm still tall :-)

Thanks Norreen,yeh you are right, I would.

No sweetfire, should read "looking for a special kind of person".

We do have several people in mind, but anyone intrested in auditioning for a successful working band should PM me.
Please, no time wasters.

Please note: "Punch the Horse" is an Equal Opportunities organisation.

Points will be awarded for the following.

1. Ability to break any given string at completely random moments during the set. Extra points will be awarded for more than one string at a time, and on a sliding scale relative to how early in the set they are snapped. Top points for the first tune. And an extra 10 bonus points for actually breaking one during one of McGarry's Accapella songs. (I did this once during "Take me up to Monto" while using the guitar as a makeshift Bodhran....)

2. Number of replacement dry tee-shirts required to complete a full gig at Durty Nellies. I think four is my personal best.

3. Number of pints of Guinness consumed during a gig without falling over or forgetting what key the Wild Rover is in.

4. Ability to smoke a cigarette whilst playing Dirty Old Town without McGarry noticing. Extra points if you can roll it during the intro.

5. Ability to look a complete twat at all times. Clog dancing in very amateur style with Nik-Nak whilst playing tunes, wearing a tea towel cunningly disguised as a pair of surfing shorts is one of my personal favourites.

6.Ability to not lose the plot completely when Oakley and Watson cunningly slip the Birdie Song and Scotland the Brave into any song or tune, at a totally inappropriate time, regardless of tempo or key.

7. Time taken to change a whole set of strings. This will be digitally timed by TagHeuer in a strictly monitored dark, smoky, crowded and noisy environment.

8. Ability to scan a crowded pub constantly while doing all of the above, in order to identify potential company for the end of the evening. This includes direct eye contact while singing "She is handsome, she is pretty, she is the Queen of Dublin City..." Never fails, people. Extra points will be awarded for hazard awareness (husbands, boyfriends, and Sue Wiley's disapproving glare), the ability to spot when she is Andy Watson's type, oh and of course, good taste.

9. Ability to get yourself out of the sh*t as quickly as possible when successful application of the above results in a compromising situation, such as realising that the gorgeous pair of eyes you've been looking into all evening across the crowded, smoky pub, are actually attached to a deeply unattractive middle aged overweight mother of five with acne and an inability to speak the Queens english without uttering an expletive at least five times in any given sentence.

10. Oh, yes, I nearly forgot. You have to be able to play the Guitar.

Think that about sums it up. Anything I've omitted, Noreen?

McGarry, I trust you'll let me know when the Autition dates are. Good luck, people. May the best man (or woman) (or hermaphrodite) win!!!!

In accordance with EU employment legislation the criteria for selection should be published. The list should include "essential" and "desirable" criteria.

For example "looks good in black" would be essential whereas "ability to play guitar" would be desirable!

This might be an opportunity to inform all our friends and loyal supporters -and to dispel any rumours - that the unbeliavably talented Mr.Dean is leaving PTH for personal reasons - none connected with the band.

Peter has been with us for five years and as far as I am concerned, those five years working with him have been the most pleasurable time in my musical carreer.In the hundreds of gigs we have done with the axeman I have never known him to give less than his all, which in his case is about five hundred percent!!!

PTH WILL ride on after the new year, sadly missing one of the finest musicians either side of the Humber.And I will have to get used to not hearing "are you up for it McGarry?"

Hey Specky. According to my gig list, 5th October, 9th November and New year's Eve are all at the Sun Inn.

Incidentally, the forthcoming CD will be the last with the current line-up, featuring the Mighty Ossonflags, Andy "The Box" Watson, Dave "The Professor" Oakley, Nikki "loony bird" Williamson and "scissorhands" DeanMeister.

I have last weekend informed my friends that I will be leaving the band after our last gig at the Sun Inn on New Years Eve.

Reckon that might be a raucous gig!

Lovely to hear that Little Hawk!!!

Torona hey!!!!!!!! was there about six years ago.In fact bought my buckskins in a little shop that serviced the cowboys in the Calgary Rodeo.Dont know the name of the street but was near a restaurant called the "Groaning Board".

Also stayed three weeks on an island on a lake near a small place called Gravenhearst, which is near Lake Muskoka.

The brown pearl necklaces Oakley refers to are in fact a speciality of the Manitoba Inuits - the Pooh tribe - who are closely related to the Ploppees.The base product been harvested in Port Churchill after the polar bears have been shooed away in the early spring.I believe that there is evidence that these necklaces started appearing in South Ferriby about three years ago.

George,

In South Ferriby, we have Lincolshire's largest community of Inuit people. Our local dentist, who does his rounds on a skidoo, makes an absolute fortune and sells necklaces made from what he calls "brown pearls" that emit a foul stench when warm.

Just thought I'd pass that on, for what it's worth.

You don't need buckskins anymore to perform in Canada. We have become surprisingly modern since 1967. One very rarely sees moose or wolves on Yonge Street in Toronto any longer, and the Eskimos (now referred to as "Inuit"...the politically correct term) all use snowmobiles (when they're not watching TV) and get diabetes from drinking Coca Cola and eating candy bars (while they're watching TV).

A well respected music critic from Hull, who prefares to be anonamouse said " this promises to be a night of unparalled musical brilliance. Punch the Horse " is one of the most accomplished, exiting, and respected live bands in the area, miss them at your peril" he went on to say that if he was doing nowt he might come.
