Hey Andy

This year we'll try and prise Frazer out of the hotel foyer,a school of thought does exist that Frazer is painfully shy ?

Load of bullsh*t the ol' bugger works on the theory that the further you are away from the bar the less the chance of having to buy a round of drinks!

Hi Dave hope alls good n funky  ... Mmmm I wonder if there's  some merit in all of this :- "shyness " say steer clear  from the bar  area and maybe hoping then that there's more cash  left over in the old back pocket ( or tucked down the socks/kegs ) to spend in "Scotland's  World Famous  Black Gold  Sales/Swap Meeting/Chill out Record Room"  at The True Soul Scottish Weekender 2014- or is it just a simple case of saves one digging deep into the old pockets and buying a round etc etc ???

Yet again the Truesoul weekender will be held against the backdrop of those frigid Panda's at Edinburgh Zoo possibly giving birth. According to one expert today a female panda is only fertile for a one off period of 36 hours in any one calendar year ? (wow! I've had hangovers that have lasted longer than that!). Anyway fingers crossed that she and her mate don't suffer a bout ot impotence or a migraine over the next couple of days.

Yes the inpending birth of a Panda was the topic on everyone's lips at last years Truesoul weekender, with even Butch in the middle of his Saturday night set shouting down the microphone "has she dropped 'em yet" now did he mean the Panda's or Susanne carrying a tray of drinks ?????
