We’ve yet to have chance to look through the footage from the gig, but already there are videos beginning to circulate… If you have any more, or know of any, lemme know! The first one has already got back to Adam Buxton (Adam and Joe Show was always one of Robb and my favourites, and still is amazing!), tho I wonder what Robb Flynn would make of Davidian… Anyone up for asking?
Robb’s Gig 2007
Hello! Jus’ so you know, doors are at 7pm this evening, and the first act (Chris, Noddy, Paul and Matt – The Butchers) are on at 7.15! Be there to support them if you possibly can!

Hopefully see y’all there! x
Heres a preliminary running order of acts, starting at 7.15pm:
chris and noddy and matt and paul (the butchers)
Mike, Paul, Matt and Tom
Jimmer and Nik
So Am I
The Appletree Boys
Any objections? Problems? Bear in mind it not an order of rank or status, everyone playing is awesome, it’s just what we think will make a good night of cool stuff! We got a couple of other things going on that will be happening between some acts.
If I’ve missed anyone off, lemme know a.s.a.p.
Also, unless we end up running early on the night I think we’re full of performers now, so if you haven’t let us know already then either turn up and hope for the best, or wait til next year! xx
UPDATE: There are so many awesome folks wanting to play this year, we’re gonna have to skip the drum-off, and do it properly, in style, next year! We got big plans for it, so there is no point doing a half-arsed, rush one for the sake of it.
I’ll post a full line-up in the next couple of days when everyone has confirmed.
Hi. We gotta get things going, as this years gig is fast approaching and we’ve virtually done nowt!
First things first, it’s gonna be on Friday 14th September 2007 at Invention Studios, Bath. We couldn’t get the Saturday, so Friday it is. Which is Robb’s actual birthday anyway.
Debs n I think that we should do it acoustic-style this year. Kinda open mic like, so people can get up n play if they have the nerve, or speak a poem or perform a… performance. We think all the music should be acoustic tho, to give it a different vibe to last year, and maybe make some interesting things happen (tho there’s not very long to get tunes figured out)… 7 Crowns Unplugged?
Hopefully we can get a bunch of kit together again (anyone got an acoustic bass?!) so people can just get up and play. Any offers greatly appreciated! If you wanna bring your own guitars anyway thats fine, but it’d make things easier to share drums n that.
On the subject of drums… this time we wanna do the ‘drum off’. We think it’ll be kinda like an MC battle, but just drums. We need someone to organise whos gonna play on the night and keep track of winners n stuff.
We’re also planning to do some ‘live art’ with a big canvas (or many small ones) set up on the night with crayons n that for people to draw stuff. If anyone wants to get in early on that and get things going let us know and you can come in during soundcheck or something.
As I said, if you wanna just turn up and play that should be fine, just come and find debs or rach or me and we’ll try and make it happen. It’d be good to have an idea of whos performing (and how many!) tho, so if you’re definitely up for it maybe let us know in advance! Also if you have an unusual set up or bit of kit we’ll need to soundcheck it before the doors open.
Any input welcome, especially a name for it! I don’t think Robb would be too impressed with ‘Robb’s Gig’ so we should try do a bit better this time!
There’s a group setup on FaceBook to discuss the gig, post pictures or whatever, so if you’re signed up for FaceBook, go join it!
