So what actually IS going on?
World-wide we are all suffering from the repercussions of the September 11th disaster. Looks like an Afghan is less valuable than an American, eh? Dont get me wrong though, I applaud both sides. Nothing like the bad guy to keep the
governments and churches in control.
But down here in the depths of Bristol, we are all well and truly active. Well I would have been last night if the old sinuses hadnt packed in. Ones own world only stops for a few things : gratification, cold weather, good music and illness.
Pathetic I know.
Whats making my clique buzz however, is the prospect of relationships. Somehow the hunting gene has kicked in and we are all out on the prowl...yikes, thats a scary thought. Beware all metal-boys of Bristol...especially those that frequent the Mandrake club...! Nice place that. Good atmosphere, music and cheap alcohol. Cheap door price too.
Anything else. This week I've mostly been listening to NIN...no specific album though. System of a Down's "Toxicity" album was leant to me yesterday. All is good. This time next week I will be at the Fleece, boogying away to Rachel Stamp and Halo...two of my favorite bands of which I DONT own music.
Me and my clique keep on bumping into Robin from Rachel Stamp...he's great. Give you a hug and a wink anytime
Thats about it really. Its Sunday! What do you expect?
Rachel Stamp and Halo

Rachel Stamp happens to be a glitter/glam band. Not much knowledge on them, except for they sound better live than in the studio, and have had permanent trouble getting signed to a label. Very nice people, although the lead singer, David, is a bit up himself. Acts like he's somehow magical...which he isnt. The other members include : Will, plays guitar, and who I SWEAR looks like Billy Corgan
of the Smashing Pumpkins, but my friends mock me for that. Shaheena plays keyboards...and her mother tongue doesnt happen to be English, but she has amazing eye make up and is very pretty. Robin, mentioned above, is the grooviest dude...the last thing he said to me (in the crowd at the Jan 24th 2001 Marilyn Manson gig @ Docklands Arena) was *Keep on bleaching!* as the band are
well reknowned for their multicoloured hair and glitter...he is very nice indeed
Halo happens to be a rapidly up and coming Bristol rock band - you can catch their first ever music video (Cold light of Day) on MTV2 at the moment. I went to school with the drummers sister - helped her in English class; and she was constantly telling me I should go and see them play live, because it was "my kind of music". How right she was!
Amazingly textured band, gorgeous layered rmonising vocals, stage presence to die for.
Bristol rarely churns out such talent, but when it does...oh boy...this band will be HUGE...
Anyway, I thought I should elaborate slightly...cant wait to see them on Sunday!!
