  1. Tickets are now available from Black & Blue, The Traf, Index and HMV. Will be able to purchase online at the Venue from next week.
  2. Hugh Cornwell will feature in a live phone-in with Bob Harrison on Manx Radio's Drivetime this Fri 4 Feb just after 3.30pm
  3. Anyone curious to how good Hugh Cornwell is live should check this link out to a gig in Paris last week. Some good photos too. Looks sure to be a good one. Review HERE
  4. Anyone who isnt aware of support band The Shedmen could check them out at the all-singing, all erm guitar playing and all staying up dead late Tsunami gig at the Traf this weekend(Friday night/Sat .) I believe they should be on about 13.50 in the afternoon. Top day and wealth of local bands all morning,day and night!
  5. Pleased to confirm the one and only Legendary Former lead singer of The Stranglers HUGH CORNWELL will be playing The Venue Thurs 3 March 2005 as part of a nationwide tour. The tight 3-piece have been playing together for some years now and we are promised 70% Stranglers 30% New material (New Album Beyond Elysian Fields out now) A book signing is being planned on the day of the gig at Ottakers so bring along your copy of his autobiography A Multitude of Sins to be signed. (More details on times to follow)Support will be from the new line-up of The Shedmen. Tickets go on sale Feb 1st More details here
  6. I agree huge Scottish bands dont spring to mind though undoubtedly I would suggest Runrig are currently the erm Supergroup. Marillion Scottish??? Pre- '89 possibly with Derek "Fish" Dick (IMHO THE classic line up) however Hogarth/Mosley/Rothery/Trewavas are all from England and Mark Kelly is actually from Dublin Small anorak point-nice to know there are still some fans out there!
  7. Great line up there and at the Venue. Shame so much talent all on on one night. Be sure to make at least one of the events!
  8. Heard a copy of Chris TT's London's Sinking lp, his latest and its a great listen. The opening song London Aquarium sets the pace for a superb intuitive 4th album by this chap. Thanks to Andy and Ballagroove for bringing him and Timothy Victor over for us to discover for ourselves. Great local line-up as ever and at probably the most underrated venue on the Island? See you there
  9. First of all Happy Birthday and secondly-even if it is/was your birthday(which is now probably yesterday!) -if the Govt or whoever gets Supergrass over for TT-are you going to say it was your idea!!! I have to agree that they have more of an all-round appeal. PM and I will tell you some of the suggested bands from the TT Thinktank!
  10. Excellent event-just what we do need I wholly agree. Firstly-where? Secondly who?(I thought Razorlight were simply superb at Glastonbury but who has heard of them here....aside from maybe about 100 dedicated Traf/Douglas musos?) Thirdly how much? Without serious sponsorship, subsidy or incentives getting that many bands on one bill would be expensive. Bear in mind most of that line up are from the south coast of ENGLAND or local. Of course we could tap in to Ireland and the North West no problem but who is brave enough to put on a bill of bands about to or breaking on the off chance? Having been in the position of trying something new and bringing a band on the verge it isnt comfortable when you dont get the support. Fourthly....lets do it!!! but not in TT or middle of winter. Merely a humble opinion...... Oh and I had spoken with one of the Promoters back in June and he originally had Keane and Snow Patrol!!!
  11. As mentioned earlier-Manx School of Motoring are excellent. Possibly the most professional in terms of offering you proper contracts and schedules rather than simply turn up on the day. They currently have 4-5 Instructors and one of them, Lisa Hodgson, ou couldnt hope for a more clming and professional instructor.Worth a call. From memory its 620435.
  12. Finally got him. Tks for everyones help! Lenny
  13. Hi Sarah-sorry just mailed you before checking this out. Was after a tel no. I just got 2 tickets returned by a friend who is away. Unfortunately there are no comps left(sent over £2500 on them!) Text me if you want them? Cheers Len
  14. heh heh Some irony here mbx 18 years ago there was me and many chins....playing poor bball! 18 years later there is me with many chins........bball still poo mind! So who is Ans and Mbx-reveal yourselves.........-well your identity!
  15. Eek.erm hello Ans! So how do I know you?
  16. Sorry to use these forums for a general request but wondered if anyone knows of Ady Hall. He founded the Manx Web Agency but has since gone in to Trust Administration. I only ever had a mobile number for him which is no longer valid. Its not life-threateningly urgent but important I get hold of him soon. Please PM me a contact or some idea where he is working or living? Thanks in advance. Lenny Conroy Triskel Promotions ltd
  17. I am pleased to announce the Deacon Blue gig has sold out at 3pm Fri 6 Aug. All 1450 tickets have been allocated but keep in touch with the Villa Box Office for tickets returned or not picked up. If any tickets come good I will post on my website www.triskelpromo.com Thanks for the great support and early bookings. Long may it continue.
  18. Deacon Blue support announcement 26 July 2004: The local band support for the forthcoming Deacon Blue concert has been announced and the gig has gone to talented duo FAIT. The band consist of Ben Dundersdale (Aftermath)and Mike Jelski (Freshly Shaven). Fait was formed in early 2000 from two well known northern rockbands combining to form an original acoustic act. 2001 culminated in the release of their debut album, "Well...Yes!" which saw a strong blend of easy listening guitars and powerful vocal harmonies. 2002 saw Fait play at the Cavern at the Jewel in the Scene final as runners up in the best original song competition for the ambient ballad 'Standing Still'. It was at the heat finals that Triskel Promotions Ltd Lenny Conroy first caught the duo live 2003 saw Fait again playing in the final of the 'Londons Calling...' competition at the Torrington in London and begin to break the UK Music scene with regular gigs in Liverpool and York. 2004 saw Fait enter the recording studio again to record their latest EP "Good Times". It also saw the band grow from the simple 2 piece acoustic outfit to a 4 piece. Fait spent most of 2004 gigging in the UK including a gig at the York University Summer Ball. After a summer of writing and recording for the forthcoming album "And Yet...No!" (due out next year) The future is looking rosey for these chaps who will provide a suitable support to Deacon Blue's set on 28 August 2004. Over half the available tickets sold in the first week of sales and Triskel anticipate a sell out possibly a fortnight before the event.

  20. For anyone interested-the announcement of the support slot for the forthcoming Deacon Blue gig 28 August at the Villa, will be announced at 4.07pm just after a Deacon Blue track on Mike Buttell's Drivetime Manx Radio I am sure you can wait? Oh and we have now sold over half the tickets in just one week so dont delay as we are unlikely to have tickets about a fortnight before the gig!
