Scissor Sisters Gig – Pigeons’ Protest

Right – got sent this story from Monica. Cheers for the heads up Monica!

It’s about how some piece of shit band called The Scissor Sisters are doing a gig in Trafalgar Square – as if that wasn’t bad enough…

“organisers are now frantically recruiting 10 birds of prey to ensure that the square’s notorious pigeon population does not ruin the show”

Eh? What the fuck?

First off – here’s what the Scissor Sisters look like:

No fucking need to bring on the hawks – wouldn’t go anywhere near it anyway, unless it was to shit on their amps for a laugh!

Anyway, just coz they said they’re gonna bring on the hawks, I’m gonna get a load of pals along for one massive swoop down fly by. Either that or just sit there staring at them cooing our nuts off.

So – September 16th – get yourself down there – gonna be a right laugh.

Apparently “they’re relatively unknown in their native US”. No fucking wonder if they’re that rude when they gig over there. Probably word got out and everywhere they went they’ve been persued by flocks of angry pigeons, which is why they ended up here.

Well, you fucked up retro freaks – you ain’t seen nothing till you’ve seen a bunch of pissed off London pigeons! Bring it on.

    What a bunch of losers. I lived in the US until last year and never heard of them. No wonder.

    Just wanted you to be careful, Bri. I’ve grown quite fond of you, you may very well be my favorite London pigeon. Give ’em hell.

    Hawks? Barbarians! How are they going to stop congestion in the rush hour, bring in lions? To be honest i’m more likely to go to trafalgar square to see the pigeons, so if they get rid of the pigeons and replace them with mincing freaks, theres no chance! Maybe i should start a pigeon friendly band with my new found drumming skills. Bri, you can be the bassist if you like

    Becci: Don’t worry – they’ll be even bigger loosers on the 16th when they get covered in pigeon shit!
    Your pal Bri

    Monica: Cheers! I’ve already got a few of us together. Word is the hawks are shitting themselves. Ha ha.
    Your pal Bri P

    Elf Mandinio: Like the sound of the band idea. Tbh though I reckon a few coo like backing vox is about all I could do… and and they’d be well ropey… I could always practice? RE the gig – I reckon if enough of us turn up everyone’ll loose interest in the freaks anyway – esp as I’m trying to hunt down a few show pigeons – get some cool tricks going.
    Your pal Bri

    Loved your post about the Scissor Sisters. I work at the new London paper London Lite, and would love to put your blog forward for our ‘blog of the day’ slot. We’d like to run a few paragraphs as a taster, to promote the blog to our readers. Would you have any objections to that? Let me know!
