novocaine for the soul

me and the baby-girl jess headed over to rock-city in enemy territory for a gig by the legendary eels last night, been a fan for a long time but this was the first time i'd seen them live, bloodyfuckinghell, brilliant, the band, resplendent in old-school adidas, black and white, triplex stripe, tracksuits and adidas 'campus' trainer's, sunglasses and lot's of facial hair, tunes, old and new and a couple of great 'cover's' fleetwood mac's 'oh well' and the small faces 'itchycoo park mix that in with a 'secret, third encore, a good two-thirds of the crowd had already gone home when eel's came back on stage and devoid of stage lighting and effect's, kicked everybody's arse and, they didn't even play this tune........

right, here we go, firstly, bollock's to mister 'dog' william's! i've now got the 'pistol's 'i'm a lazy sod' as a fucking ear-worm due to one of his comment's! back to nanno's request for more photo's of the beautiful little starter, here you go greg, fill 'yer boot's mate, not chain drive, but a machined pair of roller's, drive via rubber belt, [complete with little 'jockey' wheel to maintain tension] and beautifully knurled to grip the rear tyre, plastic rollers to stop side movement and tyre catching on the aluminium supports, big old motor, looks like a lorry starter motor, no i.d. marks on it to reveal the origin i'm afraid, all in all, a brilliant piece of kit, well executed and nicely engineered, 10 out of 10 from me as len say's on 'strictly come dancing'.....
