Well, we had a good time at Broadstairs, recruited some more leopardeers, sold more cds, and got some more songs out to the world.
We've also put in a word for all you guys seen wandering round with guitars and nothing to do.

Being thoroughly p****d off with our treatment (not the audience) at OFC. .. it was very heartening to return to Essex's Fab Club this afternoon. There are no prima donnas... we're all equal and share the running of the club. Our two songs went down a storm. There was yet another request for the words of ..."Peckham Rye"...... Our Ben's first solo performance was the last of the afternoon and was extremely well received.

Had a recent look at your web-site too, very interesting, funny informative, delightful - course, I could be biased !!

Lovely to "Spot" you at Flab Cub on Sunday, great stuff !! see you again soon, am hoping to travel to Tenterden, might see you there?

I totally agree about Orp FC - real primas - or so they think - wont go there in a hurry but will try and get over to Friday Folk (I think is a real shame your club names get mixed with one another ...)

This thread seems to be refreshed regularly to keep the name of this band on display--it was amusing two years ago, but has worn thin--no one really contrtibutes, and, I for one, would appreciate it greatly if the thread would be allowed to gracefully retire.

You certainly may use Mudcat as much as anyone else, the problem is, you use it more than anyone else--

By continually refreshing the thread, you've kept the name "Tone Def Leppard" prominently displayed on the Forum thread list for more than two years--it gets more exposure here than Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and Jean Ritchie or dozens of other more venerable performers--Clever marketing, I suppose, but rather tedious--

Originally used in opera companies, "prima donna" is Italian for "first lady". The term was used to designate the leading female singer in the opera company, the person to whom the prime roles would be given. The prima donna was normally, but not necessarily, a soprano. The corresponding term for the male lead (almost always a tenor) is "primo uomo".

Legendarily, these "prima donnas" were often regarded as egotistical, unreasonable and irritable, with a rather high opinion of themselves, not shared by others.

Remind you of anybody? They could at least sing!

Oh, no guest.

Quite apart from the fact that we probably all know perfectly well the derviation and meaning of the expression "prima donna", whatever you think of TDL's musical abilities (or songwriting abilities, and they are two different things - vide for example Bob Dylan whose "musical" performances are about the nastiest noises on the internet, although he also wrote some pretty good songs) "egotistical, unreasonable, and irritable" would be three unfair things to say about them. They have opinions, and not everyone agrees, but (apart from sometimes) they are not usually irritable. Yes, I've seen Sue lose it big-style, and make a bit of a fuss sometimes, and she and I have had sharp words from time to time, but by and large TDL are amusing and amiable.   The Leopard Cubs can be teenagers sometimes (but, gosh, they are teenagers)!

It's a lang time since we lived in a country where hevvin' a good time and enjoyin' yerself wez a punishable offence. Cromwell's England wasn't it?

TDL never intended te tek the music world by storm so it's not THEIR fault if people liek them and want te put them on a pedestal.

Between ye and me aah'd rather listen te them than Morrisey.

Happy to oblige, Sue, and to confound those who keep refreshing your thread themselves by complaining about it.

I don't think they they knew how they were coming across to people watching the stoush (good Aussie word) bemused from a great distance. But in the words of their anonymous supporter above, "egotistical, unreasonable and irritable, with a rather high opinion of themselves" is a pretty good summary.

I'm sure they are really all lovely people who run a great club, it was just hard to tell.

I hope Julianne and Floyd of the Shiny Bums didn't miss out on TDL in Rochester - they loved the session.

We await the international tour.

The confusion is understandable. they haven't got round to adverising as yet. They have a Myspace - useless if you haven't.
Will try and get them organised.....

Meanwhile this is the way we go. Coming from Orpington via Eynsford. Go across the ford(there is a road bridge) turn left After 400 yards or so you will see some white houses and a war memorial (firs right Bower Lane). Go up this for 2.7 miles. You will pass walled house, (security lights etc). Turn right about 200 yards past this.Sign in Hedge says Fox and Hounds. Massive car park, down there (field).
Pub at end of lane.
Fox and Hounds has a thread, but little info on it.

Hey! I love Tone Def Leppard ! We tried to track them down to come to the Goose, but we couldn't find them.

Saw them at Orpington Folk Club a few years back, then at a folk festival - maybe Leigh-on-Sea, can't remember.

No time to trawl through getting on for 500 posts, can anybody tell me how I can contact them? If you can, it would be great if you could email me, thanks!!
