Synchronise diaries!

Posted: July 5th, 2008, by Marceline Smith

I am back now and have some exciting news. diskant will soon be TEN YEARS OLD and thus we are having an extravaganza on the eighth of the eighth of the eighth. This is not the actual date of diskant’s anniversary as I didn’t think it an event worth noting at the time but it’s the right month and it does tie in nicely with the only other diskant event, our gig on 02/02/02. However, that was a complete coincidence as I only noticed what date it was the other week.

Anyway, it will involve bands, tunes from the glory days of diskant, secret surprise guests*, PIE, free badges, an INDIE TOMBOLA with AMAZING PRIZES** and some other awesome stuff. I will announce more details soon but get your diaries out and make sure you’re in Glasgow that weekend.

*No, The Oedipus will not be reforming. OR WILL THEY? (No)
**If you would like to donate an amazing prize, or just some tat, get in touch.

Marceline is the fierce, terrifying force behind diskant.net, laughing with disdain as she fires sharpened blades of sarcasm in all directions. Based in Scotland, her lexicon consists of words such as 'jings', 'aboot' and 'aye': our trained voice analysts are yet to decipher some of the relentless stream of genius uttered on a twenty-four hour basis. Marceline's hobbies include working too much and going out in bad weather.

    You shouldn’t toy with people’s emotions like that!

    I turn 28 on the 8th of the 8th 08.

    This is nothing. I turned 8 on the 8th of the 8th 88.

    Blew my mind.

    Jon, that is amazing. Surely there’s a bunch of people somewhere awaiting your leadership as per some ancient prophesy?

  6. Jon

    Hmmm. I’ve been waiting for them to call for years, but so far nothing.

    Haven’t checked Myspace for a coupla months so maybe they’e emailed me on there.
