This, as you may have already realised, is a group of Joes. A big group of Joes. So big, in fact, if you were to book a function room at Choristers Country Club in Norwich, there wouldn’t be enough space for them to hold their annual Joe conference.
One Joe who threw his conference invitation away though, is this Saturday’s act, Joe Solo. He’d rather go his own way and play for us at CYCM instead, where this week we give a Yuletide welcome to Barwell. Quite un-festively, they’ll no doubt be looking to kick the ball into our net more times than we kick it into theirs, so we’ll try and keep the Christmas spirit alive the only way we know how:
10:30 Father Christmas may have a big sack to carry, but it’s nothing compared to what the Oddies have to carry up to Starkies when they bring all the gear up
11:30 Mike Noodles does his bit for Turkeys and Geese everywhere by bringing his veggie hotdogs and veggie pizza
12:00 Doors open
12:15 As it’s Christmas, will we have mince pies? Probably not, but who needs mince pies when Dave Frilly brings the tater ‘ash and cheese and onion pies from Westwells?
2:00 Taking You Round The Corner: lies make baby Jesus cry, but he won’t mind these porkies. Possibly
2:30 Joe Solo- see below
This week’s entertainment comes courtesy of afore mentioned political performer and raconteur, Joe Solo. Not only does he perform his own brand of folk, punk and blues music, but he also writes books, runs a research project on the first world war, and works with underprivileged children.
Ten albums in (ten!), his current album ‘No Pasaran!’ tells the story of the International Brigades who fought the fascists in the Spanish civil war, through the stories of those who volunteered to fight, and looks at the re-emergence of far-right groups in today’s Europe.
You can visit Joe’s website www.joesolo.co.uk for more details.
As always, Taking You Round The Corner also occupies its own chunk of the afternoon. Can you unravel the truth from the Christmas lights-esque tangled web of lies? Give it a go; you never know…..
As it’s Christmas, Stu from Ebay may also bring his in-no-way cheap tea lights, to get you in a festive mood and bring a lovely ambiance to the normally un-festive Starkies. He’ll also have his car-boot-sale-without-a-car-or-boot sale, where you can pick up issues of A Fine Lung old and new, t-shirts, hats and maybe even the odd book.
