Fashion Wales Newport 23rd April 2009

One of the best things about Newport is Vacara's chips and curry sauce, its the best thing ever.
Any way, Eggsy and I went to the Newport Leisure Centre to host Fashion Wales.

They had even put up posters and everything.

Basically it was a big excuse for people to dress up in odd clothes. They also had a bunch of local music acts on to. It was the sort of coming together of music, dance, weird clothes and funny make up.

It was put together very professionally.

They had a massive stage for the acts to come out and show off their "thang" to the audience.

We introduced each act and got the crowd going after each act had finished their turn.
Below are "Smerks and Darkaz", they were one of my high lights.

There was Body Paint from Colleg Gwent.

And face paint too.

Even the Police turned up. This is Lavinia's "Po-lease" collection.

This dude had come down from London with these well safe pendents made out of Lego to put on your chain. He made me give it back at the end of the night, gutted.

This is Denis, he put the show together, he is awesome.

These kids did some rare break dancing.

This is my crew.

It was an amazing night out one that we will never forget. We even managed to get a beer in afterward in Newport's famous Le Pub.

Big up to all who were involved, just remember, keep Newport tidy.

BBC 5:19 21st April 2009

It was a beautiful sunny day.
Adam was wearing shorts he has had since he was twelve.
A perfect day to get in the back of a red van and drive to London.First thing you have to stop off at the local garage to get fuel for the van and some rough food.

Mike went for the bacon bap option, delicious.

Before you can say "I've had three cans of strong larger", we were in London.

At the BBC near Great Portland Street.

To be on a show that has something to do with BBC Switch.

Mike was going to play guitar on "By Any Means Necessary".

So we decided he had to dye his hair red. I think it looks pretty good.

This is Grayham and Eggsy with Tom Deacon who hosts The 5:19 Show that we were going to be on.

This is all of us after the show. Check out Maggots hat, he is the king.

After the show we went and drank beer on the street just like most of the people who live in London.

Before we left there was just enough time to ram some food in our heads.
Mike went for the old classic, cheese and chips.

Eggsy decided to wait for the service to get a saturated fat burger.

Another fantastic day out with some healthy food thrown in, well the burger came with some lettuce in it anyway.

Diverse Records 18th April 2009

It was Saturday and it was national Record Shop day.
So we went down to Diverse Music in Newport to help them out and play a few tunes on the turntables.

Mysti was having a great time.

Here we are with Mark and Matt.
They either work at Diverse or they hang out there a hell of a lot.

Billy wanted to look like Phil Collins.

Check out Billy with a picture of Billy.

I think Mysti might have had a few beers by now.

Nigel turned up and everything.

They even let Eggsy operate the till!!!

Check out Billy and Eggsy double teaming.

Another great day out, Newport is so nice when the sun shines.

Big up to Diverse Music, thanks for a great day out.
Don't forget to check them out online, for all your record buying needs.

Soccer AM 18th April 2009

Adam, Mike and Maggot were going on Soccer AM. So that meant that Adam and Mike had to travel up to London the day before to meet Maggot.
Mike and Adam had a packed lunch for the train.
And before they knew it they were up in The Smoke.

They met up with the Maggot and went for a curry.

Bengal Bertie's is Maggot's favourite curry house.

Then after a brief sleep it was time to get up at stupid o'clock and go of to Soccer AM.

Mike had been dreaming about this day for a month.

If your lucky enough to have Sky you will know what this is.

Mike nearly pissed his pants when he met Gazza.

This is all the crew, Helen Chamberlain, Gazza, Max Rushden, a Soccerette, some dude off a football film and the GLC.

Adam, Mike and Maggot even got a match ball for having been on Soccer AM three times.

I have never seen Adam so happy. When he got back to Newport he had the biggest smile on his face, he is probably still smiling now.
