ive been out drinking with Sweeney quite a few times back in the day. used to live a few doors down from Stiv at one point too. i once heard that Sweeney jumpd off the corn exchange balcony drunk, and bounced. haha
Had the awesome pleasure of seeing the Dead Pets a few times, one of their's is a local to Hartlepool :)
Best gig, duo performance with Lightyear, I have never seen so much of a man in one night.
Plus there was a guy with a boner to the emo?! band that played before Lightyear. Good, if strange, times.
