House nearly packed away, PC going soon

I'll be away for a bit. Probably till after Xmas as I'm off to that Adelaide soon All the packing is to be finalised tomorrow so I won't get much chance to do some NWB'ing


Can I thank you good lads and lasses of NWB ? Yes ? Cool !!
Thanks to all ex members of Tuskan, Tracey, Nick, Kev, Dave and Baz (now Black Rose/NIB)

.. Here I go in Oscar award type receiving speech

Big thanks to those who gave me the deps thru NWB, it's OK I have seen a doctor...
Riff Raff - Plenty of odd gigs here and there, cheers to Kol, Dave, Ian (sorry cannot remember new guitarists name) and Carl for loan of the mic leads (Still owe you a pint for that).
Sin after Sin, long stint whilst they unearthed a fiery demon...cheers, Ton, Russ and Jason.
Short burst of gigs with the Cellar Machine and I am president, Nice one..

All the drummists I met and wheeled and dealed with.

Tubthumper, Alyerpal, Tylo (Metalleeka), Mark (Vankwish), Baz (Black Rose/NIB), Arron (ex Metalleeka) and a chap called Geoff (Never played with Metalleeka and cannot remember the band he was with). Plus others...on each occasion had met to buy sell gear and spent a further hour gassing about gear gigs etc. Thanks

Also good luck to the guy's in Armed and Ready - now you have a drummer !!

To the venues!!! Had some excellent ear numbing / splitting gigs...
And punters !!
Viking being of notoriety around these parts :)

But most of all to Mr. (Paul) NWB and Mrs. NWB for letting me take liberties with the most excellent website and community they have nurtured!!! If you have any plans to extend to a SAB (South Australian Bands) let me know.

So yeah signing off and hope to find my feet down under and I will get back on here as soon as and let you know how it went. Hope I get some gigs there too!!!
I think that will do..
Cheerio :)
Much Love

All the best dude.
Hopefully we might be joining you in moving down under in a few years if the housing market picks up and we can flog this place.
Father in Law and Brother in Law moved down to Sydney and we've talked about moving to either Perth or Brisbane.
It'll probably never happen but I hope it does.
Rock n roll cobber and put a few shrimps on the barbie and open some tinnies from us.

Cheers Baz
