Ginger Says – Bush has the bombs, but Britain has the balls

Tuesday, February 18th, 2003

Anyone that attended the ‘anti-war’ march, or stopped by Hyde Park on Sat 15th of Feb 2003 will have been witness to the biggest celebration of action in the history of public demand. Gathered in what seemed to be below freezing conditions an estimated 1 1/2million (the organisers even claimed there to be more like […]

Ginger Says – Saving the world and drinking fucking coffee

Monday, January 20th, 2003

Anyone went back on their New Years resolutions yet? Mine is to stop drinking for three months. Failed a medical test, had no choice but to sober up and mend the liver. An old friend of mine died over Xmas from alcohol related liver failure. If you drink moderately, but every day, then I have […]

Ginger Says – Out with the old, in with the now…

Sunday, January 5th, 2003

Hey y’all… Dunno how many members of The Wildhearts have gotten into the ‘net spirit yet, but I’m hoping that there’ll be some massive contributions from the guys in the near future. I thought I might as well give my thruppence worth on how I see the year shaping out, being as I already got […]

Ginger Says – Life’s a funny thing, and the punch line usually comes when you’re thinking it’s anything but funny

Monday, December 9th, 2002

Hi there, So here’s the new site. Like it? I ain’t seen it yet, but I hear that these new guns are well capable of dealing with the standard left by Mr. Stockford. Er, I actually heard that from Mr. Stockford. I digress. And I’m sure it won’t be the last we hear of Darren, […]

Ginger Says – Moving on is hard to do

Sunday, October 27th, 2002

Since starting this site with Darren Stockford, a lot of things have happened: sell out shows with SG5, successful (and not so successful) reformations with The Wildhearts, Singles Club fiascos (sorry ’bout that one but it’s miles out of my hands – I just cannot for the life of me foresee getting a spare month […]

Ginger Says – Sometimes, principles are all you have

Thursday, July 18th, 2002

Seems a long time since the last of these intro things reached the eager eyes of the strange breed of folk that frequently inhabit this place. I’m currently in the tiniest hotel room in Nottingham, waiting to leave to soundcheck for tonight’s gig at Rock City. It was supposed to have been a secret gig, […]

Ginger Says – We’ve never had such a good view. Front row seats for the game of the century!

Friday, May 17th, 2002

The tour, the record… the whole damn thing. Dread. That was what I felt the day before we played our first show of the tour. With The Wildhearts, anything is possible (as you’ve probably figured out by now, unless you’ve recently joined us… in which case, please read on). And if things are gonna go […]

Ginger Says – There has never been such a passion and determination to make this stuff the best that we have ever recorded

Thursday, April 4th, 2002

So The Wildhearts descended upon the dark rock ‘n’ roll recess known as Skegness (actually a bright, sunny, friendly place, but for the sake of atmosphere please bear with me), ending up at a place called Chappel Studios (owned by the highly genial host Andy Dransfield, with fantastic eats provided by the luscious Kelly, owner […]

Ginger Says – It’s impossible to predict how things are going to go with The Wildhearts, but this time we mean it

Friday, March 8th, 2002

Seems like an awful long time since the last time I wrote one of these. Man, so much has happened that it’s difficult to start at the beginning. So I won’t. The following events come to you in glorious random-vision. Speaking of Random, he’s undergone some major surgery and is still recuperating. Wish him all […]

Ginger Says – Rock ‘n’ Roll, kids – remember the name. And don’t forget where you heard it first

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2002

“It’s not whether you get knocked down, but whether you get up” – Vince Lombardi Happy new year – the year that will see ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ become a hip term to use amongst the young movers and shakers of the media and entertainment business. The old guard are out and the new blood are […]
