BedHead 20th Anniversary Facts #1. 1st BedHead gig...The Steamboat, December 1999. Number of gigs since....4000ish. Cant get an exact figure due to missing diaries and stuff. 1st song played by BedHead at first gig...Wind of Change by The Scorpions. We might resurrect this for this year. Worst gig....Grannies Heilan Hame during a week that The Sun did £5 holidays. At one side of the room were loads of people wearing rangers tops and at the other, loads of people wearing Celtic tops. Between the sectarian chanting and glass throwing, it was ghastly. It was like being on the other side of the bars at a zoo. Furthest place played....Pafos, Cyprus. Furthest UK North....Port of Ness, Lewis. Furthest UK South....Dumfries. Loudest gig....Lossie Raft Race. Organisers asked us to turn it down as we drowned out the announcer. Best fight....Goes to Hazel. Either between the huge bloke she strangled in Peterhead and the guy whose leg she nearly broke in Dicey's. Strangest gig....Playing on the shop floor of Mark's & Spencer's in Aberdeen at Christmas. Biggest twat....The owner of a venue in Inverness who cancelled us with three hours notice on a Friday night "because the toon is quiet." The worst thing was that the owner of another Inverness venue was coming to see us that night. When he turned up and asked about us, the other guy said that we'd been booked but not turned up. Fucking prick. Best gig...Wedding in Alness which turned out to have my long lost brother as a guest. People were saying, " Donnie. That guy singing looks just like you!" Smallest audience....Grannies Heilan Hame, March 2002. Two old ladies.
