Re: MEMORABLE THEATRE OR MUSIC CONCERT AT CH

not sure it was ever released.... JJT - what a character! don't think I've seen him since my last stint with NYMT as FOH manager at Edinburgh in 1996. So Adam, what are you doing in the west end? I worked for Stoll Moss for three and a half years in the early nineties before I went freelance. Did y...

Re: Damian Scanlan (LaA81-88)

Did Damian have abrother called Paul who was in my year...Class 84? He did indeed, he went on to be in the original line up of a goth/rock band called Creaming Jesus who as you can imagine went down hugely well in middle England. Here's their cover of The Cure's A Forest which Paul played on before...

Re: Sex 'n' Drugs 'n' Rock'n'Roll Part 1: Substance Abuse

Meanwhile it made front page in The Express :shock: I still have the cutting somewhere. I came across the cutting today - I haven't got a scanner unfortunately although I did take a picture of it but it's too blurry to put on here. It mentions the letter sent home to parents and has quotes from Ric...

Re: Strange old man dressed in WW1 army gear / dog named lobster

I remember the figure of Kirby walking around. On my year in our house Jon Armour had a scholarship (i think) from Kirby and so went to visit him every week in his room behind the science block. He took me along one time on the promise of some mead that Kirby had made from his honey. Needless to say...

Re: underwear

Also known for a short time as tea -bags. I won't ask why :lol: Actually it's a lot more innocent than it sounds. They were of a fetching design that resembled tea bags in that they had the lots of little holes woven into them (if you can weave holes that is but I hope you get my meaning), I suspec...

Re: Dormitory Antics

Dorm raides and lamp posting! Bum sliding in the lav-ends by blocking up the drain by the baths and flooding the floor by over filling the baths! Apple pie-ing the sheets of an unsuspecting squit and holding his hand in a glass of cold water when he was asleep hoping he'd wet the bed. HAHA Richard,...
