Hello folks! I went off interviewing again this week. I popped round that Glenn Eastoe's house.
Hello again Glenn, and well done on your World Cup victory, I would like to probe you a bit....
Trev - You have a beard, I have one too. Who wears your favourite beard?
Glenn - Its a close call between Robin from the Pig N Falcon (the huge celibate guy with the amazing beard) and Giant Haystacks.
Trev - Not me then?
Glenn - No.
Trev - I almost forgot! What is your favourite colour?
Glenn - Brurple. Its a mixture of brown and purple. I believe its more commonly known as 'deep plum'
Trev - The Simpletone have just been voted THE best in the Cambridge Band Competition. Are you going to start showing off and wear glitter suits and that now?
Glenn - We could, but its been done to death. How about a builder, an Indian a policeman and a sailor. Now that is great and original!
Trev - I like the sound of that! It seems that kicking Paul Simon out has worked wonders for your popularity, do you keep in touch?
Glenn - When Paul left us it wasn't exactly amicable. He smashed my GHD's, urinated in Craig's bass drum, called Alex a 'ruddy bum' and stole Johns beard comb. We haven't heard from him in a while, the sound of silence indeed.
Trev - Well, he is an island that man! If The Simpletone had a fight with The Beautiful Sleazy, who would win?
Glenn - Hmm. Now that's a tough one. If it was a battle of the beards we would win on the strength of Johns alone. To be fair we are pretty tough and we love a tear up! But I heard that the sleazy drummer has an amazing girly slapping technique where he can dish out over 700 licks per minute once in a rage. This scares me...
Trev - I could have all of them. They don't scare me. Do you have any pets?
Glenn - John has a Cat call Sid. He rocks and is more loyal than a dog. He likes to help us pack our gear into the motors and waits for us after every gig.
Trev - Whats next for The Simpletone?
Glenn - Well we're punching well above our weight already so we may as well quit while we're ahead!??
Trev - Do you watch Hackertime on CBBC? Its well funny!
Glenn - I haven't actually seen this one yet. I must confess though I have caught myself watching CBBC looooooong after my 2 year old nephew has gone home.
Trev - CBBC is the best telly. Even though Iain left. Imagine this...Its 5 minutes before a gig, and you really need a poo. If a relaxing poo generally takes 15 minutes, would attempt to force it out and hope its one of them 'no wipe' ones? or do you wait till after the show?
Glenn - I'm a 3-a-day man myself, regular as clock work and it only takes me 5 mins max (unless the farmer giles are playing havoc of course) So I would just go for it. In fact the first thing I did when we got to our gig at The Junction last Friday was find the toilet and take a 'lunker'. Dr Lunkenstein at your service!
Trev - I could be sat there for 3 days sometimes. What is the average football team supported in The Simpletone?
Glenn - Man U unfortunately. I'm an Arsenal fan myself. By the way, you can buy our LP known as 'Rampenny' for just £4.99 from itunes. Its a right bargain!
Trev - I didn't ask.
Glenn - No. No you didn't.
What a fascinating insight into the world of Rock! Thanks Glenn!
Listen to The Simpletone here.
If you have had an apparition, or think you've seen a ghost, tell us with an e-mail, StNeotsLiar@mail.com with Trev Monsoon in the subject line
As you can imagine being a Taxi driver in Sunny old St Neots I am used to picking up all sorts of celebrities, such as Minty’s mate from Enders, Captain Kirk who drinks in the Conservative club and sometimes Jeremy Clarkson who has lunch in the Weeping Ash every Thursday. But, can you imagine my surprise when last Saturday night I picked up American *A lister* Justin Timberlake who is in real life a local lad named Darrel and lives just outside St Neots with His Mum and Dad, bro and sis. He's a very friendly chap, he invited me in for a quick cuppa and let me 'Liar' him then take pictures of the results at his family home, just before he was due to hit The Corner House and The Priory! Look at him! He's lovin' it! Babeee!
Also I think I may have seen Samuel L Jackson shopping in Tesco’s 2 weeks ago.
A Note From The Editor
The sun came out this week! Then went away again. Summer gets shorter every year. Some top 'liaring' this week! Keep it up!
I took Mrs De La Bonbon out last night. When she came to, I apologized by taking her to the comedy do by Jesterlarf at the Burgess Hall in St Ives. She was made up!
It was a great night,Mandy Muden compered the do, She was very funny, took the shinkling out of just about everyone and did a bit of magic too. Later on was Keith Farnan, who told lots of Ireland based jokes, but the pick of the night for Mrs DLB and myself was Duncan Oakley, absolutely ridiculous, with a guitar. We lolled all over the place.
Unfortunately, we missed headline act Bob Mills off the telly, due to Mrs DLB needing a poo, she just won't go in a public lav.
If you do get chance, go to a Jesterlarf do, it's right good fun.
