Default Broadlands Gig Review (The Tarts)

Boy o boy did the sun shine on us all down in Sarfampton Me, ManTart and HalfTart set off from sunny Leeds at 9am flight bound to the other end of the UK. My fellow tart Caroline met up with us outside 'Lennie's gaff' in the 'palatial beer garden' for some well deserved lunchtime liquid refreshments....and so the debauchery began

Some hours later we headed over the 'boundary' to a wonderful quaint pub the Three Tuns for something a bit more substantial closely followed by more liquids! Met up and chatted with some of the UBCrew, while basking in the amazing sunshine - only to hear a spine chilling shriek as ManTart realised he'd left his ticket back at Lennies!!!! Gawd theres always some drama on a 'Tarts Tour' After many phone calls a top class carrier pigeon arrived with the golden tickets!! *plonker*

Phew....we could relax again and get another round in - on the back of Caroline's promises!!! I'll say no more!!!!!! nudge nudge

As early evening set in - we set off for a walk to the venue...and kept on walking until we spotted the Loonie Line Up at the front of the stage was great to see the Bouncers, Soul&Jaye, Tanya, Taz, Sparkler, Nods, Annie, Starshine, Josie, Liz & baby sista, and just millions of other loonies who I cant remember right now and of course Moo who had to make her presence known!

The scene was set, and the Dualers came on - I personally have never heard any of their tracks and OMG how fantastic were they Just brilliant - loved their renditions of old reggae & ska tracks and will DEFINATELY be going to see them again. Of course we all gyrated and sang and totally enjoyed their performance - before we were nudged in the back by a tipsy brunette who turned out to be GERALDINE!! who had obviously been on the lash elsewhere all afternoon!! She was just in time as the BOYS entered the stage and did us proud, inbetween a few pissed up beligerent party goers trying to wrestle with Nods, Sparkler & Gerio - the night was a blast, UB's all looked like they were really enjoying the night, Dunx was strutting his funky stuff up and down the stage and really enthused the crowd....was great to see the UB's again - its been a long time for me - I could so do it all again this evening if im honest!

I had a great day/evening with my fellow Tarts - a brilliant laugh : you guys crack me up!

Nice travelling with ya ManTart and thanks soooo much for the cd of Dualers..will be checkin them out asap.

Slowly coming down from my high....hope its not too long before im up there again with the UB/Looines

Jen it was lovely to see you again. And next time I see you I will recognise you as I was quite sober for a change.

I wish you a speedy recovery although I have to say I thought you looked really well.

Take special care of yourself.
Love
Caroline

PS: Man tart and mater are both called Paul
