Friday at last!

The weekend is here at last, it's not actually raining at the moment so it's all looking good!

Lennon Lyrics
A handwritten lyric sheet for "All You Need is Love" used by John Lennon in 1967 was sold for 600,000 pounds at an auction in London on Thursday, organisers said.
The manuscript was part of a pop memorabilia sale featuring clothes, paintings and musical instruments from Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and others.

The "All You Need Is Love" lyric sheet was used by Lennon during a television performance by the Beatles and could be seen on film footage dropping to the floor after the song was performed, said a spokesman for auctioneers Cooper Owen.

A girl working for the BBC at the time retrieved the manuscript from beneath Lennon's music stand. She provided a letter of authenticity for Thursday's sale.

Can you imagine how she feels today? One scrap of A5 paper is now worth £600k...

Thursday live music and ugly alcohol!

When we first read this news piece (on Yahoo) we couldn't quite we believe what we were reading but it appears to be genuine! See for yourself below.

Ugly Men Called In For Drinks Firms Ads
Drinks companies have been ordered to use uglier men in their advertising campaigns.The Advertising Standards Authority believes "balding" and "paunchy" men would be less likely to encourage women to drink to achieve social success.The new advertising code stresses that links must not be made between alcohol and seduction.

A campaign for popular sparkling drink Lambrini has become the first to fall foul of the new rules.

The Authority objected to a poster which showed three women "hooking" a slim, young man in a parody of a fairground game.

The industry regulator instructed the firm: "We would advise that the man in the picture should be unattractive - ie overweight, middle-aged, balding etc.

"In its current form we consider that the ad is in danger of implying that the drink may bring sexual/social success, because the man in question looks quite attractive and desirable to the girls.

"If the man was clearly unattractive, we think that this implication would be removed from the ad."

Lambrini owner John Halewood said the Authority should not be in the business of defining who was and was not unattractive enough to star in ads.

He said: "It makes some very understandable rulings to encourage sensible drinking but we're not sure they're qualified to decide for the nation who's sexy and who's not.

"Sexual attraction is happily one of the few things in life that can't be governed."

Of course if we saw how the man looked the morning after a night out that might be different. How is it that sometimes, someone who looked so good last night looks sooo bad the following morning? The power of alcohol!

Once the beer goggles are on everyone is attractive!

Wednesday 27th

Well the South Somerset & West Dorset edition of Suited and Booted has been put to bed. All being well it will be at your favourite venue in a few days.

Breaks 'disturbed by work calls'
Almost half of all holidaymakers have their break interrupted by calls from work, new research has shown.

A survey of 2,000 adults for Teletext Holidays found that one in four cannot switch off entirely from their job when they are on vacation.

Two out of five even feel guilty about taking time off, with women feeling more guilty than men.
Workers often stayed late in the week running up to a break to clear their in-tray, especially in London, the poll found.

Nishma Patel, managing director of Teletext Holidays, said: "Holidays are precious and should be a chance to get away from it all - and that includes work.

"However, our research shows that holidaymakers are finding it increasingly hard to achieve this because work either looms large or is on the phone.

"Bosses and workers should look to factor in plenty of hand-over time so that people can be left alone to enjoy their well-deserved break."

Teletext Holidays suggested that workers should leave their work mobile phone at home when they go on holiday and delegate work before leaving the office.

So what's happening locally today if you are not on holiday?

Local(ish) boy done good

Singer cooks up prize nomination
This was snipped from the BBC page linked above. The reoport is by Jonathan Morris BBC News South West.

Seth Lakeman: Kitchen enhanced album's gritty soundMercury prize nominees Chris Martin and folk singer Seth Lakeman were born only 30 miles apart in Devon, but occupy different parts of the music universe.

Martin's band Coldplay took 18 months to record their latest album X&Y, in eight studios in five cities including New York, Los Angeles and London.

Lakeman took three weeks to record his album Kitty Jay in the kitchen of his brother's cottage on Dartmoor for £300.

Thursday 21st - feeling stressed!

Modern life too stressful: research
Britons are becoming increasingly impatient as the time pressures of modern life leave people feeling stressed, research has claimed.

Two-thirds of people said they thought modern life was too stressful, while 96 per cent admitted they behaved badly because of the rush they were in to get everything done, according to online insurer

The study, which was carried out by the Future Foundation, found that 60 per cent of people had jumped or swapped queues at the supermarket and 22 per cent had even abandoned their trolley or basket full of shopping because the queue to pay for things was too long and they had run out of time.

Click the link above for the full story.

Beam Me Up Scottie!
According to the web site Ireland On Line, eighty-five-year-old actor James Doohan, who played Scotty in Star Trek and died yesterday, will be cremated and his ashes shot into space. (This is at the actor's request.)

It’s a fitting end for a man who spent the majority of his on-screen career holed up in the engineering room of the Starship Enterprise.Born in Vancouver, Canada, Doohan’s Scots brogue was created for the show. Always happy to chat with die-hard Trekkies, he spent the last few years as a regular on the convention circuit.

Advance notice of Friday gig at Flicks, Yeovil

Friday July 22nd @ Flicks, Yeovil
A quick update on this week's gig at Flicks bar in Yeovil while there is still time to book tickets!

ADEQUATE 7 - (HouseHoldName) A hard-working punk ethic and a love of all things rock and groove, alonside their passion for old skool hip hop, funk and hardcore punk influenced AD7 as they forged their distinct sound. KKKKK live ratings and a new cd on its way, things are looking good for ad7.

THE SCRUB - (Do The Dog) Bristol based 7 piece outfit The Scrub have been building a strong local following around the West Country for a couple of years now. They have notched up support slots with the likes of RX Bandits, Shootin Goon, Fishbone, Howards Alias, Adequate Seven, Babyhead, Long Beach Dub Allstars & King Prawn in the process.
The Scrub play a highly addictive & uniquely dark take on the old skool 2 tone ska formula, with moderate lashings of hip hop & skacore thrown in for good measure.

THE MERCURY - (GoodCleanFun) The Mercury League formed on 6th August 2003, in Sunderland, UK. They have been likened to bands such
as Rise Against, Joe Ninety, Belvedere and Twofold but the sound is undeniably theirs.

WEAPONS OF BRASS DESTRUCTION - (Power Pop) Popular (almost) local band, Beach ball ska core from Weymouth returning to Yeovil after months away.
You know you love watching them!

Monday morning

So have you (or your kids) finished reading the latest Harry Potter book? It was expected to sell 10 million copies in the first 24 hours of launch. Some however have sneered at Potter mania and sought to put the Harry Potter phenomenon into perspective.

"Oh for a timely spell of reality," Roland White wrote in the Sunday Times.
"Let's keep things in perspective. Until Friday, the Harry Potter series had sold about 270 million copies worldwide. Which is considerably less than the one billion shifted by the late, rather unfashionable, Barbara Cartland."

On to the Music
Sadly this like many other Mondays is suffering from a lack of live events except...

At the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil:

THE CHRIS BARBER BIG BAND. Chris Barber leads his 11-piece band, with seven strong front line, playing a wide selection of his favourites from his roots in the New Orleans style, Bourbon Street Parade to the early music of Duke Ellington. It is then on to the sound Sidney Bechet and the blues of Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. An evening of exciting Jazz and Blues music, great entertainment for all.

If the Taunton area is more interesting for you then try the Open Mic Night at the Westgate.

Did you like the pictures of the Music For Africa event? Have you got some of your own? Then send them in by email to and we will post them here for others to see.

Have a great day.

Who took the banners?

Tom Toomey who heads up the Music For Africa charity has been in touch today.

He asks
"Where have our Roadside Banners gone? We put 50 banners donated by IVEL FM advertising the Music for Africa Concert in YEOVIL and surrounding areas. ALL the banners in YEOVIL have been STOLEN. My Co-Ordinater Christine Newton rang up the Highways Authority on Tuesday and was told it was not their doing and was an 'ACT of VANDALISM'

In this world where not only are we trying to make POVERTY history but also MUSICAL poverty history, there are still VERY SAD individuals who are prepared to strategically try and undermine a good cause from taking place! Incredible!

16 kids from Soweto will be singing at the concert on Saturday night! Come and see a fab show


If you know who took the banners down then do please let us know, perhaps there is some innocent explanation for this?

Rock group INXS has launched a reality television show to search for a new singer.

Viewers from around the globe will vote for their favourite contestant each week over the next three months.

In a similar format to Pop Idol, the three with the least votes will perform again before the remaining members of INXS choose who will get the boot.

The last man or woman standing will make an album with INXS and go on tour with the band, best known for hits such as What You Need and Need You Tonight.

But the Australian band insists it is not trying to replace lead vocalist Michael Hutchence, who died in 1997.

"What we really want is somebody who brings their own personality along and someone completely different," said guitarist Tim Farriss. "I think he'd think it was kind of funny in a good way.

"But in another way, it's really an organic way to find a new singer. It's the best way we could think of."

The eight female and seven male hopefuls, from the US, Canada and Australia, are holed up in a Hollywood mansion and their exploits will be aired on the show three nights a week in the US.
An omnibus edition will be broadcast in the UK every Sunday on VH1.

Sorry looks like it is too late for you to enter!

WW2 60th Anniversary event on Saturday

This Saturday (9th July) at the Yeovil Recreation Centre, (off Mudford Road) in Yeovil there will be a music extravaganza and firework spectacular to commemorate 60th anniversary of end of World War II.

Yeovil Town Council is organising the music spectacular and fireworks extravaganza.

The costs of staging the event are being met by the Big Lottery, following a successful grant application by the Town Council last year.

The event will take place during the national weekend of celebrations - on the evening of Saturday 9 July 2005 - at the Yeovil Recreation Centre. Admission is free, and everyone is welcome to attend.

As well as children’s rides, a wide range of catering facilities will be available and a licensed bar will be operated. Free car parking will be available at the nearby Yeovil College.

The evening kicks off at 5.30pm with the Ivel FM roadshow. This will include live broadcasts from the event and music entertainment during the intervals.

At 7.15pm the Milford Junior School Choir take to the stage with Belinda Evans – who shot to fame when she sang at the last Rugby World Cup Final.

Following a short interval, the Wessex Big Band will appear and will play an hour of swing music to get everyone “in the mood”!

Cllr Ian Martin – Mayor of Yeovil will then make a speech and present all those who are performing at the event with a special memento to mark their involvement in this historic occasion.

At the conclusion of the presentations, the award-winning Yeovil Town Band – featuring Belinda Evans - will entertain the crowd, which is expected to top 10,000 people.

The Grand Finale will include a synchronised fireworks display with the Town Band providing the musical accompaniment.

Yeovil Rotary Club have kindly agreed to carry out a charitable collection during the event in aid of the Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen’s Families Association (SSAFA) – Forces Help. All the money collected during the event will go direct to this worthwhile charity.

The event is also being supported by the Western Gazette, which has kindly provided posters to promote the event and is producing event programmes.

Off Topic-UK Chief wants all Police to have Stun Gun

Police want to 'Tase' you
Click the link above which will lead you to the BBC news web site where the Chief Constable of the Manchester force subjected himself to a taser to demonstrate how "useful" it would be for all police to have these weapons. (At the moment they are issued to trained Fire Arms Police only).

Just so we know what he is talking about, this is the same "safe" weapon that is reckoned to have killed 70 people in the USA since it was launched a few years ago.

The Real Truth
If you look at the picture on the BBC web site, take a close look at the Police man behind the the Chief Constable and about to 'tase' him; he's grinning like Cheshire Cat. I think that probably shows the real mind set at work here.

Tasers are not the safe alternative that many people present them as.

Bonkers things to do on a Wednesday (from Reuters)
Estonians snatch world wife-carrying title again

SONKAJARVI, Finland (Reuters) - Estonia reigned supreme once again in the wife-carrying world championship on Saturday, as Margo Uusorg sprinted home to win the Baltic country's eighth straight title in the offbeat competition.

Forty couples from 10 countries gathered in the remote Finnish village of Sonkajarvi to complete a 253.5-metre-long obstacle course. A man must carry a woman, not necessarily his spouse, through a pool and across hurdles.

The few rules require a minimum weight of 49 kg (108 lb) for the "wife" and state that all contestants must have fun.

Uusorg, 25, completed the course in 59 seconds with friend Egle Soll, 23, (why not his wife? Is she a big old heifer?) clinging to his back in the trademark "Estonian Carry" -- hanging upside down with her legs clenched around his neck.

Uusorg's prizes were his partner's weight in beer and a high-tech mobile phone.
It was his fourth victory, and the third in a row for his family. Brother Madis won in 2004.
"We don't have a secret, we just try to run fast and hope the legs work," said Uusorg, who works in Stockholm as an embassy driver. He warned that the family would be even stronger contenders next year when brother number three, Urmet, takes part.

"He holds the Estonian record for the 800 metres," Uusorg said.

Uusorg and Soll received first prize from the hands of visiting U.S. basketball legend Dennis Rodman, who declined to compete, saying he lacked both a wife and proper training.
"I'm not in shape ... It could hurt the back," said the former Chicago Bulls and Detroit Pistons forward. But he promised to train for next year.

"I'll carry the kids around the house or something," he said.

Some 9,000 people came to view the event, set deep in forests and lakes a couple of hours' drive from the Arctic Circle. It began in 1992 as a purely Finnish contest based on local legend, according to which wife-stealing was once commonplace in the region.

Tanglefoot play at David Hall, S.Petherton Thu.7th

The David Hall in South Petherton are very pleased to welcome the Tanglefoot on Thurs 7th July at 8pm at; The David Hall Arts Centre, Roundwell St, South Petherton, Somerset, TA13 5AA. Ticket prices are £10/9, Bookings on Tel: 01460 240 340

Stan Rogers meets Van Halen..." That's how one concert-goer described them, and it fits. Tanglefoot has always been a thunderous live band, but that's only part of the story. Tanglefoot is also a band of adept songwriters who vividly evoke the Canadian experience. "One of Canada's most accomplished musical mythologizers," wrote Robert Reid of the Kitchener Waterloo Record. And after more than twenty years, this Canadian roots institution is stronger than ever, with their double-barrel combination of deft songwriting and exhilarating performances leading the way.

Guitarist Steve Ritchie has the longest tenure, having joined in 1988. Toronto bass player Al Parrish has been around since 1994. Terry Young came on board at the beginning of 1999 to play mandolin, guitar, banjo, harmonica and whistle. Bryan Weirmier replaced Tanglefoot's original piano player, Rob Ritchie in the summer of 2002. The newest addition is Kingston, Ontario fiddler Terry Snider, who joined in May of 2003 upon the retirement of Joe Grant.

Their media appearances include the syndicated folk radio show, The Midnight Special, The Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour in Kentucky, BBC Radio in the UK and Bound for Glory - North America's longest-running, live folk music show - in Ithaca, New York where they won the Third Annual "Best of Bound for Glory" Award. They have also appeared twice on Gabereau on the CTV Television Network, Tele-Relais on Radio-Canada in Winnipeg and on News Night Minnesota on Minnesota Public Television. The summer of 2004 saw the release of the DVD as well as Tanglefoot's first-ever appearances in Scotland as part of their eighth UK tour.

Ben Waters and his Big Band - at Lulworth

Ben Waters and his Big Band - with Special Guest
Open Air Concert

Friday 8th July - Gates 6.00pm ONE NIGHT ONLY

The 2005 summer season brings a Blues extravaganza back to the stunning outdoor venue of Lulworth Castle, Wareham, Dorset and they are delighted to welcome BEN WATERS to headline this year, together with his BIG BAND.

Ben is internationally acclaimed as one of the most exciting piano players in Europe today. His live shows are an eclectic mix of boogie-woogie, blues and hot rock'n'roll, and his trademark energy, emotion and sheer enjoyment is evident from the start. You can look forward to more of the raunchy vocals and exuberant style that have earned him a superb reputation as one of the genres finest performers.

…and they have a Special Guest lined up to add to this spectacular evening under the stars.
The Lulworth experience is more than a show – make an evening of it with friends – enjoy the fully licensed bar, delicious food & refreshments or bring a picnic and enjoy the show the Lulworth way! See for more details .

“… It's a driving, energetic sound, to put it mildly, and you would have to be in a pretty dismal mood not to get carried away with it. Ben Waters has the kind of two-handed technique that sets piano keys flying in all directions.” - The Observer
“One of the best pianists in the U.K." - The Times

Off topic phone scams

This information came in from the local Business Link team, but I figure that it may save someone the hassle of being scammed, if I let you know about it.

We have been advised of a telephone fraud currently in operation - this applies to home and work telephones, landlines and mobiles.

If you receive one of these 'rogue' calls you will hear a recorded message congratulating you on winning an all expenses trip to an exotic location. You will then be asked to press 9 to hear further details. If you press 9 you will be connected to a premium rate line that costs approximately £20 per minute . Even if you disconnect immediately, it will remain connected for a minimum of 5 minutes.

The final part of the call involves you being asked to key in your postcode and house number. After a further 2 minutes you will receive a message informing you that you are not one of the lucky winners. The total bill by then will be £100.

Since the calls are originating from outside the UK, BT and other telephone companies are left relatively powerless to act. The only safe solution is to hang up before the message prompts you to dial 9, even safer hang up on any unsolicited 'free offer calls'.

There is another scam operating on mobile phones as well. A missed call registers on your phone, the number is 0709 020 xxxx. If you call any number back beginning with '0709' you will be charged £50 per minute. This practice is completely legal.

What's gonna' happen on Tuesday?

Bizarre events in the news on Monday evening:

As reported in LONDON by Reuters - The BBC apologised on Monday for outbursts of swearing by stars including Madonna at the weekend's Live 8 concerts after it received hundreds of complaints from viewers.

More than a million people watched the shows held at 10 venues across the globe on Saturday, while an estimated 2 billion tuned in via the Internet, television and radio.

The BBC, which carried live footage with no time delay, said about 350 people had complained about performers using bad language before the 9 p.m. watershed when British TV companies are committed to airing shows suitable for a family audience.

So let's see if we have this right, out of an estimated 2 billion people watching the Live8 event, 350 complained because some entertainers used rude words before 9pm.

What a bunch of cock and bull...presumably these same people knew why the event was being put on? And they were still more bothered by some swearing before 9pm than the thought of 50,000 people needlessly dying in Africa each and every day. Perhaps the Africans could oblige by only dying after 9pm!

Makes me bloody mad!

The Editor's quiet out there

Monday is of course the day we all catch up on the email, open the dodgy looking post that arrived over the weekend and keep going with extra shots of caffeine. Or is that just us here?

It is frankly a musical dessert out there tonight although if you are American you will no doubt be celebrating your independance from the tyranical nation; Britain.

Here is some of what the founding fathers of the United States of America wrote in that declaration:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Fine words; I wonder if George Bush has read this document recently?
