Aha me hearties – ’tis Professor Hooligan here. A warm welcome to Hooligan’s Rule site to all ye who visit. This is the place where I – the infamous and slightly bonkers Professor Hooligan – will ramble on about all manner of things connected to music, at least for as long as my tenuous grasp on reality holds out.
All those who read the post title might remember the phrase attached to the tele programme Knight Rider. I remember well thinking that these words in all their mysterious mysteriousness meant absolutely nothing at all. And scarily it could apply to Hooligan’s Rule as well…
Here is an interesting factoid – the man who designed the car in Knightrider – Kit – also designed the original (and , to my mind unrivalled) Batmobile. A moment’s silence please for the great George Barris who sadly passed away last year…
Now, when you go looking in your local gig guide for our next location let me put you straight – we are presently gigging in the Dordogne. The band was born of a desire to just get down some trusty Celtic classics that we happen to love and get out there and perform them live to people who want to listen of their own free will. They can leave any time they like after we have unlocked the doors at 11 o’clock. By the way I use the term ‘live’ in the loosest possible context. Truth to tell there are some days when we are more ‘live’ than others. You can’t always trust the electrics in some of the places we’ve played over the years.
Anyway we will post the locations of our gigs in due course and then if you are down our way – pop in and say bonjour for a night of music and nutsery.
Keep it reel. See what I did there?
Have to go now – the aperatif is kicking in… (aka the local wine!)
