I saw one of those gigs. It was good but that’s when they made an effort.

Us Villiers terrace vets, we used to say that back in the day, start of the 21st century that is, about the 80s, lol.
Anyone else have this year on their bingo card as it being the last one?

And that...........if will makes enough cash from his book maybe it will be. Look forward more to his solo stuff than bunnies these days.

Did you not get any dodgy vocals at those shows? Have you heard the clips online? I give it a year max.

Can’t see selling books as a ways to make a living these days. Electric alone has gone up 50% and we’re all paying bills. If it was Bill Gates or Elon Musk, I think they’d see a return. Not even with volume one of a 10 part series. That’s a bit of a p*ss take.

Its ranked about 18000 in amazon uk best sellers list which according to some online calculator that might not be trustworthy equates to 15 a day.but that's just the paperback. Presumably there was an initial flurry and now it's tailing off. It might be flying off the shelves in real bookshops. Much lower on .com site. So you're probably right. Mind you I wrote a book about 30 years ago that still sells a couple of copies, so it's like free money. If he gets his arse in gear and knocks the other volumes out it'll all add up. Then there's be the film rights of course, bunnyman the stage musical all leading to an upsurge in record sales, and then I'll wake up

BUNNYMAN THE MOVIE

In 1970s North England, one boy dreamed of, getting through the day, listening to weird psychedelic music, being a chef, and maybe having money for a record and a bike. Then he went and found his true calling. Inspired by real events.

Cut to shots consisting of a bored teenager looking out the bedroom window running a blade down a cheap looking guitar, a rabbit being shot as a foreshadowing and a mysterious teenager with big hair knocking on the front door and saying “Here’s my bus tickets.”

From the early days. “The bloody things broken again.” to the slightly later early days. “How long does this go on for?”

Gritty said the Daily Phonograph
Depressing wrote Charmaine Quickly
Profound said Pretentious Noir

Bunnymen, see you at the barricades.

Spot on. Then Series 5 Episode 12 of “How long does this go on for” ends with a lonely tractor in a field. Hopefully ends, anyway. :biggrin:

Book sales don’t go far. Last time I looked, it was #600,000 something on list. Think that’s pretty telling.

Yeah just seen that. Deffo can't afford to go to that, lol, what with the cost of living beer wine petrol etc. Be interesting to see them with a full stadium though.

About six hundred for the 'beggars banquet' vip option. They've got senses of humour at least haven't they them stones blokes. Says from 50 quid, that must be watching on a telly fron Herman's Hill. Hope mac don't throw a wobbly.

Definitely not going to Mordor to watch them. It'll be bad enough being relegated without watching the Bunnymen playing at the pit and Mac fawning over Klopp and his mates. :vomit:

North American Tour, not USA Tour, Bunnypeeps. Did Dominic Raab come up with that one?

They will be playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto, which is in the Canadialn National Exhibition grounds, which is where I first saw them live on the New Order "coheadlining" tour.

Do you have to play for Liverpool to be able to afford to see the Stones at Anfield? :razz:
