THE BORDERLINE EXPERIENCE
JAN 20th 2007
BY JAMIE GREENING
It happened on the 20th
The Tinpots super gig!
They played the venue 'Borderline'
It was a right Shindig!
They had to get prepared
It took nearly a day
To practice, then have lunch -
Some bread and yeasty fart pate!
Phil and Jon were busy
Making 'Baby' sound like a God!
It took some elbow grease
And a small but useful truss rod
Then Nicky came to join them
With Pretzels and a grin
She showed them all with pride and glee
Her electric violin
They caught the train to London
It wasn't very far
And when they got to 'Borderline'
They marvelled at the Tudor Bar!
They arrived in time for Happy Hour
The drinks were 3 for 2
It wasn't long before they all
Were rushing for the loo!
They met a friendly band that night
Their name was Silvermaker
They introduced themselves to all
And said they were on later
The soundlady was great
And helped them find a groove
And when they started playing
They saw the crowd begin to move
Everybody loved it
And the crowd were shouting "More!"
The Headmaster played his Air guitar
And the pissed guy sat on the floor
I'm near the end of this ditty
And I'm welling up with pride
For I'm a part of this 'Super Group'
Just one of the Tinpots 5!
