    I’m ever so sorry, but that information is classified.

    The Yes bar is on Drury Street, off Renfield Street, almost directly opposite Renfield Lane. Very close to Central Station and not far from Freedom Square. We went there a few weeks ago and found it to be quite nice, reasonably good food and pleasant staff. Good place to meet up for a drink, but might be a bit crowded that night for obvious reasons!
    Look forward to maybe seeing you there on the night if I can drag my family along with me. 🙂

    @Oneironaut
    I’ve always been uppity; I was once described as a stuck-up know-it-all by a woman I’d only met once for half an hour; I thought I had offered her some helpful advice, but clearly not! She wasn’t brave enough to say it to my face, mind. Can’t think why not . . .

    What’s the story with all these posting problems?
    since last night i have attempted to post approximately 8 times, posts with links to music from YouTube, and not one of them have appeared.

    I don’t seem to have the same problems (other than the usual delays) when posting without any links.

    As you can see from relatively recent posts others are experiencing similar problems.

    Have you read the posting rules? They are in the link just above the wee text box into which you type your much admired epistles 😉

    It’s the “this page” in blue text.

    If you are posting youtube links you MUST remove the https:// bit otherwise it all gets binned. That’s to stop the embedding of the YT images into the thread.

    Other things also cause delays to, and dumping of, messages.

    The night at the Newsroom was the first time that I’d met anyone from Wings. It was great meeting like minded people.

    I know what you are saying Alex, it’s just disheartening to think how big a job Edinburgh is for the GE. 4 Labour MPs and 1 Lib/dem. Two of whom I’ve never even heard of.

    It’s not difficult to come to Glasgow for a wings night out. I can get a train from Perth. It would be nice to have one soon.

    Hi, glad to hear your are up for another Wings night out, no matter where. I remember very well meeting you in Edinburgh and for me it was a pleasure 🙂

    We’re in a new phase now and for what it’s worth I reckon that requires all of us to work together and support each other. Just because we lost the referendum doesn’t mean we go away and lie down. The opposite is true, we regroup and come out fighting.

    At least that is my view and I’m sure it’s yours. One thing I do believe there will be those that do not wish us, the supporters of Independence that is, to carry on and they will be doing their damnedest to prevent it.

    Ignore them, they are not hard to spot. If you won’t give in then neither will I, see you at the next WoS night out.

    He just needs numbers, then he can work out a price per head.

    I don’t know about anyone else but i’m starting to have serious doubts and concerns over the “new look” NNS (or are they still in the process of giving the site a makeover?) and the way it seems to be conducting its business.

    They recently published an article about the roll the DR and its journalists played in the referendum. The article, to me and many others, seemed to be a load of sympathetic journalistic shite and most comments on the article seemed to reflect that thinking. That article has now vanished.

    The most recent article is badly written with spelling mistakes and a link to a unionist newspaper. You get the impression it was very hastily cobbled together.

    The same article seems to be pointing the finger of blame at the “Better Together” parties via Davina Moron – when the No1 culprits in the destruction of our referendum were the BBC, DR and The Red Tories.

    I mean, not that i would ever even think of defending these scumbags, but nobody can very well blame English politicians for trying to look after English interests, can they. SLAB, and everyone connected to them, sold Scotland out.
    They must never be allowed to get away with that, focusing the blame on English politicians is detracting from the real problem.

    There is also a lot of growing discontent among NNS readers due to the slow production of articles – its not as if there’s a lack of material out there, is there – but to take several days between the appearance of relatively poor quality articles does not make a lot of sense.

    What the hell is going on over there? Are they working on something big? Have they given up the ghost? Can anyone shed some light on all of this?

    I shot one video that day, really only as a ploy to show the sea of saltires. I used one of the songs done by the ‘Trongate Rum Riots’ as the excuse. The sound is a bit ropey but you’ll get the idea.

    BTW: YouTube’s ‘fix your shaky video’ filter is working brilliantly these days. The video below was done with my arms almost straight up above my head and tiring from about a minute in.

    Yeah, these fix-it apps are pretty good now. They only throw away a few pixels from the border of the image. They’re a bit like the apps that normalise the levels in audio tracks when converting to MP3s. They need to see the entire file first and then work out how much they can keep and what needs to be tweaked.

    The fact that they’re free is indicative of how good the professional plug-ins are nowadays.

    Hey,

    So you’re a modern minstrel, aren’t you?
    A gallant lad wandering from town to city, with a restless heart who only knows one master: his country?

    Brassens is well known in France. Famous for his irreverent songs (he was anarchist) and great poetic talent. G. Allwright is a New-Zealander who was a friend of Leonard Cohen and John Baez. He sung in French, translated songs of Cohen as well as his own, and sometimes the other way round. On Fabrizio de’ Andre I know much less, though I own one of his album where he sings in his native patois, Genovese (the album is called ‘Kreuza de ma’ and the eponymous song begins with a kind of bagpipe instrumental riff that’s worth to listen to.

    Have a great day and great ballads! (Ballade in French means both ‘romantic song’ and ‘saunter’).

    Gerry, just realised that is a cut version of the track which misses out most of the drums 🙁

    Here’s a bit with the drums only – not a long solo but one of the best.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pbm9fobW7U0

    If you like drum solos one of may favourite soloists is Jon Hiseman of Colosseum / Barbara Dickson’s Paraphanalia (his wife) brilliant. Wish I was that good.

    Colosseum – A Machine Demands Sacrifice / John Hiseman’s Drum Solo (live version) 1971

    And while I’m on the subject here’s a bit of Jon at a Planet Drum clinic 40 years on from the last one.

    Especially of note is at about 6:00 – he speeds up the bass drums and slows down his hands and then reverses it. Get your head round that!

    I’m wondering if anyone actually reads my posts, coz I haven’t elicited a response for days.

    Onnyhoo, update on the minidragon from Dundee to the ‘Friends of Wings Over Scotland’ get-together in the YES Bar on 22nd November.

    I had a constructive blether with Bob Costello, the head man of ‘Team YES Bus’ at our stall in the Murraygate today, to collect food donations for the Dundee foodbanks.

    Here are the pertinent details. Assuming we can get another 8 (Eight) names for the minibus, he’ll provide the following…
    Minibus leaving Dundee Sensation Science Centre at 4pm.
    Drop off at George Square (handy for the Counting House for tea) sometime approaching 6pm.
    That lets us have a meal and then head for the YES Bar for 7, or just after.

    Pickup at the YES Bar, for the return journey, at 12 midnight (due to 10 hour rest time constraints on his driver).

    The cost will be £8 per head, basically as a contribution to the actual cost.

    So, can we have another 8 heads from the greater Dundee area, or we’ll have to make our own way…

    A wee word for anyone who might be getting brassed off about the Glasgow-Glasgow-Glasgow refrain.

    I know. It’s tiresome. But hey, we don’t decide where these people have their glam shindigs. It was their shout, they chose Glasgow, so Glasgow it is – if they’d chosen Cumbernauld, Lossiemouth, Brechin, Inverness or Milton of Campsie, the response would be the same – ‘youse are having a slap-up dinner when a third of your own peoples’ weans are in poverty?’

    They’ve nowhere left to hide.

    Let’s not miss this chance to give Glasgow and Scottish Labour the utter shirriking they’ve deserved for so long.

    Yet another wee and cute French tune: “Fontenay-aux-Roses” [Lyrics: JP Kernoa; Music and voice: M. Le Forestier.]

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7P39crzOCc

    Translation (not literal):

    You are so beautiful
    As you, in the twilight,
    Round the corner of my street.
    Perfumed and colourful,
    Under the evening light,
    Clad in a blue that sweet.

    When I watch you go by,
    Sometimes I imagine we are to meet so soon,
    A secret rendez-vous, a crooned lullaby,
    Bathed by the waxing moon.

    Nightly, tucked in your sheets,
    I percieve you naked, enrapt by written words.
    Mr. Audiberti softly brushes your cheeks,
    And opens forbidden worlds.

    You’re dreaming you’re away,
    What will you discover, the weather was so cool,
    Tomorrow’s Saturday,
    Feverishly I’ll wait for your egress from school.

    My Sunday will be grey,
    I won’t see you again,
    Not before Monday’s eve,
    Where will you go astray?
    Will you feel desperate pain?
    Whom will you all day grieve?

    The secret which is mine
    I cherish like a trove,
    Please don’t name me a fool:
    It’s the very first time
    That I’ve fallen in love
    With a whole boarding school.

    Good showing from Wingers tonight – Ronnie, Patrician, Cactus and Graeme Doig. May have been others I didn’t see or meet, but then again, you could also include me and Gerry, although we were wearing our SSP hats.

    The atmosphere was good. Hard to judge numbers, but there was already a fair sized squad outside the main Hotel entrance when we arrived (5.50-ish) and it grew steadily until about 7, stayed the same until 7.30-ish (official sit-down time for the banquet) and we then headed off for a pint. (The Livestream guys obviously hung around a lot longer!)

    At its busiest? I’d guess there was maybe 200-250 folk around the main entrance to the hotel, and a fairly heavy Police presence. (Credit to the cops – I didn’t see any heavy-handedeness, and there was no call for any.)

    The hairiest moment was when Murphy turned-up. He didn’t have much choice I suppose – really had to show face after all his bluster via the airwaves throughout the day – but I wonder if he realised just how visceral the reaction would be to the mere sight of his big coupon. ‘Baying mob’ isn’t often accurate, but tonight? It was. And I was ‘baying’ right up there with the rest of them. The man has an attitude and body language which seems to incite violent reaction, and he got it in spades tonight.

    He was almost at the steps to the hotel when he stopped, turned back, and placed a bag of ‘messages’ along with the donations for the foodbank drive. That incensed everyone even more, even though most of us couldn’t see what he was doing. And then, with the cops forming a guard in front of him, and safely on the steps, he turned and gave us all a ‘wave’ which some interpreted as ‘the finger’.

    Looking forward to seeing still snaps of his behaviour this evening – it felt like a wind-up. If it was? it worked.

    Onnyhoo, we were blethering, as you do, with John Peel on the radio. And this track came on. As usual at the end of it, Mr Peel gave the label and so on so, asap, I went into I&N Records, the only record shop in Dundee, at the time, who dealt with the indy labels, and ordered it.

    6 weeks later it arrived. It’s been covered by Grace Jones and Laibach (whose YouTube page reminded me of it) and is still in my vinyl collection.

    I’m gonna try to keep this on topic. (What was the topic again? Oh yes, repetition of ideas.) I posted the bulk of this last weekend so I’m indulging in repetition.

    We’re organising a minibus as follows, to get to the ‘Friends of Wings Over Scotland’ get-together in Glasgow on 22nd November at the YES Bar in Drury Street, which is around 5 minutes’ walk from George Square. Here’s the post I did in “Off-Topic” at Wings over Scotland last weekend.

    “I had a constructive blether with Bob Costello, the head man of ‘Team YES Bus’ at our stall in the Murraygate today, to collect food donations for the Dundee foodbanks.

    Onnyhoo, update on the minidragon from Dundee to the ‘Friends of Wings Over Scotland’ get-together in the YES Bar on 22nd November.

    Here are the pertinent details. Assuming we can get another 8 (Eight) names for the minibus, he’ll provide the following…
    Minibus leaving Dundee Sensation Science Centre at 4pm.
    Drop off at George Square (handy for the Counting House for tea) sometime approaching 6pm.
    That lets us have a meal and then head for the YES Bar for 7, or just after.

    Pickup at the YES Bar, for the return journey, at 12 midnight (due to 10 hour rest time constraints on his driver).

    The cost will be £8 per head, basically as a contribution to the actual cost.

    So, can we have another 8 heads from the greater Dundee area, or we’ll have to make our own way. We can also pick up at Perth and so on, en route.

    If you want to join us, get over to ‘Off-Topic’ and express your interest.

    So, do we have another 8 botties to claim seats?

    Hey man, if anyone’s ‘guilty’, there’s plenty more closer to the place feeling likewise.

    We (SSP Ayrshire) had a stall in Saltcoats today, trying to plug the public meeting this coming Tuesday in Ardeer Community Centre, Stevenston. No idea why, but Saltcoats was dead. It felt like a mid-week day, hardly anyone about, and loads of folk in a very bad mood, wouldn’t even take leaflets. Mind you, a half-dozen or so stopped, chatted, said they might attend, but the overall vibe was very low-key and depressing.

    So it goes. The heady days prior to Sep 18th now appear distant, are fading, but it’s important to recall that buzz, that optimism – we really were that close to making history? Aye, we were.

    The memory is real, and it won’t go until none of us are left to remember it.

    I’ll leave it another couple of days to see if any Wingers here want to book any of the remaining seats. If no takers, I’ll do a post on the Team YES Bus Facebook page to see if we can capture some bodies.

    Och well, since the posts in here are still mentioning the Bee Gees, here is the link to my fave BG track of all time, in the world, ever – on a number of levels.

    1. It heavily features the mellotron, probably my favourite instrument in the world ever.

    2. It was released, and tuned in with, the psych-pop movement in British music in 1967-69.

    3. It works as a SONG.

    @Alex –

    Cheers for those links. Every one a belter.

    The Bee Gees wrote some fantastic stuff and were never given, IMO, the kudos they deserved. (For example, all their contributions to ‘Saturday Night Fever’ were written in just three weeks.) The largely forgotten Kenny Everett had a lot to do with the opprobrium heaped upon them in the UK, and Clive James’s treatment of them in interview was appalling. (BTW, Graham Norton’s ‘joke’, when Robin Gibb was in a coma, was written by a Glasgow-based, female freelancer – utterly shameful. She would’ve been paid approximately £100 for it, and will have received repeat royalties every time that clip was shown.)

    Anyway, their music will live on, while the detractors sink further into irrelevance. My own favourite is ‘Jive Talkin’, and they wrote it while in the back of a van, travelling between gigs in the USA – the ‘beat’ at the start of the song is based on the regular rhythm of the van-wheels against the road. Superb artists who generated a lot of joy in their lives.

    I fully intend to be there but will be abroad until the 18th, just hoping the job doesn’t overrun. My expectations are that it won’t see so looking forward to seeing you and Jim on the 22nd.

    Just checked your rant and you are right!

    I don’t understand it myself, there are a good many Dundonians here who have posted here for not just months but years.

    Ach well, each to their own and we shouldn’t be critical as we know nothing of others circumstances.

    For example I know a very good Winger in Arbroath who has done much to help. In fact a lot, but he doesn’t like crowds and won’t attend anything like the meet up on the 22nd.

    He’s still though a great guy and does things in his own way that I at least am very appreciative of. Like you though I wish more would be willing to get themselves visible and become noticed to keep the pressure on.

    We still have a job to do. Getting rid of Labour in Scotland is first.

    I was talking about that with the other half this morning, the problem with the Dundee bus having brought it to mind. We must have been affected by the Arbroath smokie aroma to have come up with the same idea 🙂

    It would have to be a different format from the current comments sections because you would still end up trawling through. CTRL f whilst useful for searching out words and names probably wouldn’t be so useful for searching events.

    What’s the difference between the French terms “Bougre” and “Enculer”?

    says:

    @Jim Thomson:

    Etymologically, both means the same thing. “Enculé” is strictly vulgar slang (offensive) and means “bugger”, both in the “obnoxious” and “sod” meanings. “Bougre”, currently, means a poor guy, an unfortunate one, much like “bugger” when used in an other context (that poor bugger is sick: ‘ce pauvre bougre est malade’).

    However, “Bougre” is the old middle French word for “Bulgarian”. Why? Because during the heyday of the Catharist heresy, that heresy was thought to have come from the Balkans (Bulgaria). And – as it was common in those days – since Cathars had to be hated by to populace, the Church accused them of many sins, especially of sodomy. Wherefore the meaning, later inherited by the English word, directly borrowed from French. As it is often the case for English words borrowed from French, they keep their original meaning, whereas in French their meaning might alter, or even the word can disappear completely (‘double-entendre’, for example, does not exist anymore in modern French).

In fact, ‘we’ now use ‘double-sens’ (i.e.: double-meaning) in lieu of ‘double-entendre’.

    ‘Entendre’ in modern French has almost completely lost his former meaning of ‘understand’ (cf. Spanish ‘entender’) and has come to mean exclusively ‘to hear’, except in some frozen expressions.

    Hi Ronnie.

    You’re the second person to suggest the Horseshoe rather than the YES Bar – Alex Clark typed the same a couple of weeks ago.

    How about this to mull over/argue about? Move the Wings get-together ‘officially’ to the Horseshoe (more seats/space and cheaper gigglejuice) and then, anyone who wants to, can nip across the road for a pint in the YES Bar, so they can say they’ve supported it.

    Could be like the old days in Meadowside, Dundee, where Foreigners was on one side of the road and the Cafe Club on the other. (Both Rock pubs.)

    There was a steady exchange of customers all night…

    “Ca Plan Pour Moi”…
    An interesting history. This record was first released in Belgium in 1977, on the RKM label. It was then released all over the world, before being released in the UK in 1978, on the Sire label.

    I already knew the tune, because I had bought the Elton Motello single “Jet Boy Jet Girl”, on the Lightning label, prior to PB’s release.

    Both tracks use exactly the same backing track, ie only the vocal tracks have been changed for each version.

    Perchance the English lyrics of ‘Jet Boy Jet Girl’ are more up your side of the street than all that French nonsense?
