Tyketto Back on the Road!

Following hard on the heels of the Nottingham whip last weekend, a couple of lucky whippers will be off to FireFest next weekend to see a bill including the legends that are Tyketto, Firehouse and Danger Danger. A weekend of pure rock heaven!

Tyketto have also announced that they will be touring Europe in January, dates have still to be confirmed, Vodka Whip will keep you updated. There is also talk of South American gigs in May, does anyone know of any cheap flights heading that way?

The Whip on Tour is also close to new dates, negotiations are ongoing with Sheffield, London and Manchester likely destinations, while we are looking for confirmation of a suitable new venue in Birmingham.

Grand National - Vodka Whip's big tip(ple)

Vodka Whip just could not resist a flutter on the Aintree Grand National this year, not with a horse named Vodka Bleu in the running.

Well worth a shot at 50/1 we think, probably best to back each way though. Shop around some online bookies are offering a pay out on the first 5 (the first 4 is standard), although you may have to accept slightly shorter odds to get paid for 5th place.

There you go then, Vodka Whip suggests Vodka Bleu in the Grand National, Aintree, 4:15pm today (Saturday 5th April), live on BBC1.

Manchester Trip

One lone Whip member travelled north to revisit the scene of a number of whips around the turn of the century. The full report is to follow, but an early bulletin reports sightings of full down-on-knees leanback air guitar, muscle T-shirts tucked into blue denim and a full light blue denim suit in Jilly's Rockworld, proof that this mecca of rock is still firmly rooted in the 80s!

Rock City - The Rig

News from Rock City - The Rig (the venue of choice for the Vodka Whip), is currently closed for refurbishment. It seems the legendary DJ Dave (who can be persuaded to slot in a bit of cock from time to time), is sharing duties in the basement for the time being.

We are sure that normal service will be resumed shortly, shiny new toilets are promised!
