Interview with an Umpyre…

Saturday, January 7th, 2006

Joe Ingram from Independent Fabrication came to see us today – he’s a top man and has a wicked spin bowl. Here’s a few words on the past, present and future of the company.

Conversation with a 5 year old…

Friday, December 9th, 2005

Here’s something totally unrelated to bikes, but I left my recorder on whilst putting my daughter to bed the other night. We usually have a chat and here we discuss Christmas and death a little. The music at the end is My Girl by Baseless and can be found on the podsafe music network. The lyrics aren’t particularly apt, but the chorus is and it’s a catchy tune.

Welsh Wales…

Llandegla was the place, slow was the pace. You can darnload it here, feed is here and subscribe via iTunes here.
I should point out that although the road closure on the way home caused us to be a bit late, that’s the least of our worries. The road was closed, I found out later, because of a car crash in which three people died. Be careful out there folks.

Music is the appropriately titled Bad Timing by 6 Under Par, on Super Toad Records.

It was warm, wet and windy…

Sunday, November 6th, 2005

Well, Thursday’s ride was certainly damp. Mark I, Mark II, Craig, Glenn, Ag, Keith and Debs were there along with a nice surprise in the form of Steve Riley and Billy Crayons (Gary). The trails were unsurprisingly wet and it was blowing a gale. Rain later didn’t stop play, and we were out for a good two hours, much to everyone’s surprise. Notable moments were the continual getting lostness of it all (come back soon Dave Dodd) and Gary’s comedy crashes – resulting, apparently, in a broken finger. Get mended soon.

I was informed to day that podcasts are purely self indulgent egotism.
I have to agree, but as long as people keep listening, I’ll keep talking shite.

Podcast Number 4?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2005

No, really.

It’s just me building a bike, but I wanted to do it, so I have. Not a lot you can do about it now, is there?

Featured music comes from The Real McKenzies and Rubber Band Banjo. Take a look at the Podsafe Music Network for more.

Lordy looky, it’s another one…

Yup – episode three is here. I’ve been timping about a bit and it’s starting to sound about as polished as it’s going to. Content is the same – sounds from the regular Thursday night ride, quality is the same – poor. You can click here to download, here for feed and here to subscribe via iTunes.

There’s a little bit of music involved, a somewhat cheeky version of Video Killed the Radio Star, by The Buggles and a clip of the fabulous Rubber Band Banjo – Naked under Leather. You can find all kinds of great music at the Podsafe Music Network, go see.
