Despite our less than amicable previous encounter with the bad boy of pop we invited him in to talk …
BCdotC: “So then Mark, what’s this about some new gigs in the new year?”
MS: “I didn’t say they’re in the new year.”
BCdotC: “OK so when are they then?”
MS: “They’re in the new year”
BCdotC: ” Look we didn’t let you in so you could be awkward … rude boy!”
MS “I was only saying …”
BCdotC: “Look don’t start. We’ve had it up to here with you [plenty of horizontal hand waving going on above head]”
MS: “Forget it I’m going, I told you before we don’t need your help, I was doing you a favour”.
MS: “Fine!” [Mark gets up to leave]
BCdotC: “Hey where do you think you’re going?”
An air of disbelief descends on BalsallCom.Com’s offices.
There is a vague sense that it’s all gone wrong again on the Budapest front.
But then suddenly there’s a tap on the door, followed by a muffled sound, believed to be voice of Mark Seabridge (rock legend)
“You can put this on your site if you like.”
[a bent scrawny postcard flops onto the doormat]
What’s this? Could we be in business?
Here’s what the card said:
“Budapest new year gigs announced
Tuesday 11th January 2005
Thursday the 13th January 2005
Both gigs £5 on the door
Support bands (to be confirmed) will start 8.30 prompt both nights – arrive early to avoid disappointment.
Expect to see Buda between 9.30-10pm!!!
If you can get to either (or both!) and need any further info, please get in touch with me (Mark Seabridge rock legend).
Be great to see you there!

[Serious Seabridge – it’ll be nice to see you to see youyayeeeeeeaaahHHH mmmNICEah!]
Given rude boy Mark’s attitude, Buda are somewhat fortunate to enjoy a position in BalsallCom.Com’s local weblinks section.
