The Feldons, Laughing Sam’s Dice and Andrew Ellis at the Pot Belly

By johnboy - 4 September 2008 23

Thumper’s band The Feldons are being joined by Andy Ellis, himself no stranger to RiotACT, and Laughing Sam’s Dice to play a show at the Pot Belly on Friday night, doors at 8.

Thumper’s hoping a strong turnout will encourage Joan to put more live music shows on so Belconnenites have extra reason to trek down to Weedon Close (next to the laser tag joint) for a pint of coopers, a plate of chicken wings, and some great live music.

What’s Your opinion?

The “new” Laughing Sam’s Dice is no relation to the old one. This will be our third public outing as a band. We do rock/alternative covers.

We’ve got a facebook page here, for those interested:

Will be good to put a face to the nickname, Thumper. 🙂

A lot of names on there I recognise, or played in various bands with, or stepped in for a while, or just jammed with…

Thumper 1:56 pm 04 Sep 08

Optic Nerve, I remember doing a few gigs with them. And Tokyo Rose who Choc joined after one of my early bands folded.

Man, that is sooooo long ago 😉

Yep…I’m there also..as is our guitarists (still playing..Sam from Little Smoke) Dad! He’s there for a few bands in the 70’s.

Thumper 1:53 pm 04 Sep 08

Ah, from the canberra bands website 😉

I’m on there in a few bands as well. That is a long time ago…

justbands 1:51 pm 04 Sep 08

Laughing Sam’s Dice
1994-1996
Bielec, Ted =Drums
Ihasz, Peter =Bass/Vocals
Rickwood, Mark =Guitar/Vocals

I was under the impression that they were just starting out. Maybe they have rejigged their line up?

justbands 1:41 pm 04 Sep 08

I’m sure we used to do gigs with Laughing Sams Dice back when I was still playing with Space Is Dead (a LONG time ago). Have they been around for ages?

Thumper 1:38 pm 04 Sep 08

Nope, it’s certainly not a RiotACT gathering 😉

And…

I’m waiting for the medals to be finished (should be soon actually) then I’ll contact AFP and get the old digger’s address or phone number.

Aurelius 1:30 pm 04 Sep 08

Should this be a RiotACT gathering?
Will Thumper be collecting for that old fella’s medals?
What ever happened about the old fella and his medals?
(OT, yes, I know)
