    Hullo all

    Came across the site after watching Jarrow Song on youtube. That's my favourite of the singles, followed closely by Don't Stop the Carnival.

    I'm not originally from the north east, Alan's old stomping ground, but I actually moved here because I love it so much.

    Hi-Ho Silver!:hehe:
    sorry couldn't resist that!

    Welcome to the forum and glad you found us from Youtube.

    Do you actually live in Newcastle? and how did you become a fan?

    My window overlooks the River Tyne - I'm on the Gateshead side.

    I've liked The Animals and Alan since I was a bairn and listened to the chart singles. It's that quirky quality in Alan's voice that I love, along with the north east accent of course!

    Hello Silver

    Good to see another member on APFF. Have you ever seen Alan in a show?

    I would love to get to one of the remaining shows in Night At The Flamingo Tour but unfortunately not possible -
    :point: perhaps next year.

    Nope, but like you I intend to rectify my woeful omission next year. :thumbup:

    Well, good taste tends to include all the same bands! :nod: If you have time maybe you could also visit the Kinks Fan Forum, where I'm admin...

    Welcome Steve !
    It's a pleasure to have a member living in Newcastle ! perhaps there are many others but we don't know them !
    Last year, my godson has worked 6 months in Edinburgh and because of his job he came often in Newcastle. He told me it's a nice city.
    In your lines, we know now who are "the bairns" Alan speaks about in Jarrow Song. There is a large discussion at this subject on "our" website.
    Then, I don't know if I dare to recall on this website dedicated to Alan, that Gateshead is John Steel birth place…

    Steve? :whut:

    I am of the female persuasion. :hehe:

    Why aye, the bairns don't even have a fire at yem, bless 'em, and they all suffer from colds and flu and rai-aindrops.

    Sorry, sorry Silver ! 1000 apologies ! please forgive me : I don't read, write and... understand English very well ! I was sure you were a boy and as I was writing to you I was thinking to someone whose name is Steve....

    Will you come at the Bull's Head reunion on 2010, April 8th ? (see the thread Diana has created especially for that great day !)
    Friendly yours,

    No problem about the name.

    No, I can't go to the reunion. It's too far away from me I'm afraid.
