It is the first weekend in May and the first anniversary of a truly momentous event in Glasgow.
Yes folks, it is indeed a year since the sun last shone.
And boy did it shine for the first meeting of the International Chancers Brigade as we have now been dubbed by Drew.
I think that my liver has just about recovered.
This is us in King Tut's on the Friday just after Adam joined us and just before I lost the ability to speak.
What a weekend it was and one which I hope will be repeated again with all those who made the trip and hopefully a few others.
To my shame I haven't managed to catch up with Drew or JC since but I have bumped into Aldo at gigs on a couple of occasions.
Here is a song for the brave souls who made it as far as Airdrie where the sun has yet to shine and one for Dirk to remind him of the beer garden in Brel and also a big thank you to him for having the idea in the first place.
Until the next time
