The Eskies in happier times
Money, gear and a family-sized pack of travel beard trimmers.

I know you don’t normally do this, but everyone’s favorite gentlemen’s gypsy folk band The Eskies had some gear and their European tour takings to date stolen in Milan yesterday,
Full story from the guys here. There’s a GoFundMe page up and running [see link below] and it’d be great if people could show the love. Up The Parish

Castro is looking younger every day.
Band foolish enough not to get travel insurance expects people to bail them out when they’re caught with their pants down
take it easy there gramps, you’ll do your hernia
They look like they had “rob us” written all over their faces. To allow someone rob your instruments is one thing, but your cash? Looks like the lads got a much needed lesson in life.
Suicide victims, robbery victims, no end of people you won’t shit on.
Seen them do a gig at the back of the Mercantile, great laugh and great music.
(macbook, gopro and loads of other bits) along with ALL OF THE TAKINGS FROM THEIR UK TOUR!
If you are lucky enough to afford mac books & gopros in the first instance, surely 5 grown men would have the funds to replace them if necessary, so tough tits there.
The takings, is a right kick in the marbles alright, but for all 5 to agree it was better than depositing in an acc?
well then tough tits there also.
What the statue of limitations on getting fawners to fund you for poo you lost, left my wallet on the back of 46a in 1993
your Ma has them tough tits
She was 46A in 1993….
If I read that right.
whats that in cup size?
The logic is simple and grounded in common sense principles: after a certain length of time it is impossible to get accurate evidence – be it witnesses, people’s recollection etc.
No one will ever forget your Ma.
It’s convincing them to testify against her is the problem.
You’ve obviously never worked as a touring musician.
HAVEN’T BEEN SO LUCKY AS YET, BUT ITS JUST MOVED TO SECOND PLACE ON MY BUCKET LIST
I hope they get their razors back anyway.
Milan is a great city. Robberies like this are very rare.
Mainly cause people will fight with the thieving peasants to the death before giving their stuff over.
But each to their own.
Probably a few people trying to save their eardrums.
Are they a Tallaght-band?
They were originally a tallaght band called Ices but travelling was a nightmare.
Maybe they’ll stop recording that poo now…
