A Birmingham and Black Country thread for all things Brummie and Yam-Yam

I’m at the Birmingham independent food festival thingy next Sunday at Aston hall again. Might be the last one I go too. The lineups barely change and after speaking to another trader who will remain anonymous he said the whole thing has become really cliquey and unless you’re in with their inner group you just don’t get an invite to trade there.

I was in your revolting city a few weeks back to see "mighty mighty" at the hare and hounds.
Anybody remember them? They were on the c86 compilation.
Ex-members of mighty mighty are now in a band called ‘The Leaking Machine’. They supported Lawrence (Go Kart Mozart) at the H&H a few months ago. They were pretty good actually.

IIRC you live in Bilston? This makes your remarks about Kings Heath utterly mystifying :D

I really enjoyed it, they're a great band.

funnily enough, I walked into the gig a bit late and they were between songs, I pushed to the front which was a bit of a squeeze as the place was rammed and Shuggy said over the mic "it's Darren! From Bilston!" Which got a cheer.

Now, nobody knew me, so I can only assume they were cheering Bilston.

I've long thought it was no coincidence that Tolkien, inventor of those hideously misshapen, shrieking bandits, the Orcs, lived near Birmingham.
the orcs are obvs the morlocks under a different name. just lost the morl, really. and it's no coincidence that the orcs come from MORdor

Of course, being Worcestershire and posh, I think you all sound like clinically depressed Geese...
I had a mate, clean living, from Handsworth. The council sent him to Worcester for about 3 months to get qualified in Horticulture (he worked for the parks and gardens department at the council). He came back with a massive smack habit. A habit he’d picked up in Worcester which apparently at the time (late 80’s) was awash with it.

Not so yummy mummy
One of the main reasons I dumped a Brummie who was interested in me (apart from the fact that he was interested in me) was because of the way he said ‘toilet’. Ewwww.

Mrs K has just been egged as she drove home through Stourbridge - the carjacking effort: three lads threw eggs at the car, then 50 yards later two others with waterbombs. The egg and water mix completely obscures the windscreen, you have to stop to try and scrape some of it off, and they rob you/your car.

She got away with it, bad aim and poor choice of location on their part. Cars a fucking mess though.

Stourbridge is, for those who don't know, in the Black Country...

Yeah, proper sense of humour failure. She rang the filth after she'd got out of Stourbridge, they bombed down there but the kids fucked off into one of the estates.

Not just the Black Country, it’s the posh part, with ideas above it’s station.

Hope your wife is okay bud

I say ‘tuth’, my wife (who is from Erdington, yeah, I know) says ‘tooth’. She has barths and I have baths and she has ‘a roight larf’ whereas I have a loff. What more evidence do you need?! :hmm:
I'm from Birmingham, and everyone I know from Birmingham says "tuth". I lived in Birmingham for 22ish years and Wolverhampton (debatable as to whether that's in the Black Country or not) for two. Tara a bit.
