The Prehistoric Reptile Klub presents....Themselves, The Brontosaurus Chorus and The Last Dinosaur
Sunday 28th Sep 2008 | Venue: The Portland Arms
Price: 5 (4 with flier) | Time: 8pm until 10.30pm | View event details

Hi all,

I hope you forgive the event chat but the Puncture Repair Kit have decided we like our friends so much we want them to play at our party, a dinosaur party! I'm charged with biscuit baking so you really ought to come...

The Brontosaurus Chorus are a big noisy 7-piece orchestral indie-pop band from London. We think you will like them a lot. The Last Dinosaur have wooed us all with their tremulous, whimsical and majestic tunes and we think you'll like them a lot as well. The Puncture Repair Kit aren't dinosaur themed so we're going to have to make a special effort to fit in. We'll be providing dino-biscuits and generally palaeontologising the entire event. The party will take place in a watering hole situated beside the vast leafy plains of Mitchums Corner.

Sunday 28th September 2008, The Portland Arms, Mitchums Corner, Cambridge. 8pm-10.30pm 5 (4 with flier)

I still prefer the nurse.

Fliers will start appearing around the place from tonight, or grab us for one xxx

This had made it all the way down to page 4! bad gig listing!

We're PRacKticing tonight so we can dino-roar rather than squeak. Updates will continue unabated, but if anyone has biscuit recommendations/requests, get them in quick!

Published by lozzy at 12:48pm on Thu 18th September 2008.

Pepper biscuits in the shape of a Plesiosaur, please.

I would suggest that PRK do a full set of ELP covers for the full dinosaur experience.

Something like that may well already have been ordered... maybe, along with other dino themed bits and bobs.

It has indeed.

This is going to end up half gig/half childrens party.

No. It's definitely a grown-ups party. There will be beer and swearing. Promise.

People really should turn up to this in costumes like that. I reckon the PRK should admit anyone wearing a rubber dinosaur suit for free.

How elaborate does the costume have to be. Hypothetically, were I to wear my gold medallion with the reptile tusk and my green FUBU jumpsuit would that be good enough?

I'd imagine nothing less than a full on Ultraman special would do.

Today's dinosaur fact:

One of the most intelligent dinosaurs was Troodon. It was a hunting dinosaur, about 2 metres long, and had a brain size similar to that of a mammal or bird of today, stereoscopic vision, and grasping hands. In contrast, Stegosaurus had a brain the size of a walnut - only 3 centimetres long and weighing 75 grams. However, comparing brain size to body size sauropodomorphs, like Plateosaurus, were probably one of the dumbest dinosaurs.

I read somewhere that the larger dinosaurs may have had some sort of second brain or summink.

"It used to be thought that the sauropods and Stegosaurus had a second brain. Paleontologists now think that what they thought was a second brain was just an enlargement in the spinal cord in the hip area. This enlargement was larger than the animal's tiny brain."

Brontosaurus is now called Apatosaurus. This dinosaur swallowed leaves and other vegetation whole, without chewing them, and had gastroliths (stomach stones) in its stomach to help digest this tough plant material.

Published by lozzy at 2:17pm on Tue 23rd September 2008.

Brontosaurus is now called Apatosaurus. I know this from having a dino-obsessed 5 year old niece. She rolls her eyes when I try to refer to them as brontosauruses...

I have a sneaking suspicion I've watched that aba, or else something similar.

We PRacKticed last night and we're sounding pretty spanky and dinosaury. Matt has also just recieved a package of goodies for Sunday. I'll update you all on project biscuit as it progresses; I know you're all on the edges of your seats!

Published by lozzy at 12:54pm on Thu 25th September 2008.

OK, dinosaur/prehistoric-themed songs for the in-between-bands bits. Preferable avoiding theme tunes.
I'll start you off:

1) Bearsuit - Dinosaur Heart
2) Anything by T-Rex
3) Low - Dinosaur Act
4) Something by Dinosaur Jr (but what? Simon B?..)

2 different types of dino biscuits are now cooked and in tupperware. Most of the second flavor have broken, deal with it, they still taste yum.

Published by lozzy at 11:22pm on Sat 27th September 2008.

I might nip along to this... fancy doing summink seeing as I missed the gig last night at the Moon... I am tempted by Austin Stephen's Burmese python show and Pan's Labrynth but dunno if I can stay in three consecutive nights (broken up by an all day session Saturday and nipping back down the pub at midnight)...

Published by Henrythebear at 6:42pm on Sun 28th September 2008.

This thread has been succesively bumped many times over the past week and a bit (I've even posted on it a couple of times). I find it amusing that only this evening, literally now do I look at the first post to see *when* the actual gig is that I find out it's not only this evening but also finished at 22:30.

It's 22:37. I suck.

But then, it's not like I would have turned up anyway I suppose.

Thanks to everyone that came to this! it was attended by a lot of exceptional people. I hope you enjoyed it! We were mostly ill or stressed or just in a bad mood especially for the occasion. Despite this it all went remarkably well and we were able to pay the bands for their trouble. Hooray! Special thanks to Dr Carney for doing the sound and QueenBlag for helping with booking/etc and LittleMi for doing the door for a bit.

Next time we cover something we shall practice it on more than one occasion. Promise. Oh, and hopefully on the 5th November we'll play the songs that we had to miss-out last night when we play with The Research and Betty & The Werewolves! Awooo-kaboom!

I remember seeing someone scarper out of the room with it under their arm at the end of the night; I couldn't tell you who though - all I remember is that the guy had dark hair.

I'm a terrible witness.

Sacrifices have to be made... Perhaps we should widen the net to include boyish looking girls... and since the perpetrator may know we're onto them, we should also dispose of people with dyed hair and bald people.
