TOO LITTLE LOVE

WORDS AND MUSIC BY DAVE MORRIS aka MR SKIN

TOO LITTLE LOVE, FOR MY PEACE OF MIND,TOO LITTLE LOVE FOR US ALL TO SHARE, NEXT TIME IT’S YOUR TURN TO LOSE YOUR LOVE, YOU GOT TO STAY AWARE
SOME OF THE PEOPLE THEY’RE ALRIGHT, THEY GOT EACH OTHER TO LOVE, SOME OTHER PEOPLE CRYIN’ AT NIGHT. THEY’VE GOT NOBODY TO DREAM OF.
THEY THINK LOVE AINT A RIGHT, IT’S A PRIVILEGE

AND YOU CAN LEARN YOUR LESSON, ANYWAY, YOU CAN LEARN THE EASY OR THE HARD WAY, BUT DON’T BE SURPRISED IF YOU DON’T WANNA KNOW, WHEN YOUR BABY WANTS TO GO

I TOOK MY BABE FOR GRANTED, SHE LEFT ME ONE FINE DAY, NOW BROKEN IN TWO I SING MY SONG TO YOU, DO WE ONLY KNOW LOVE WHEN IT’S FAR AWAY?

OO LITTLE LOVE, FOR MY PEACE OF MIND,TOO LITTLE LOVE FOR US ALL TO SHARE
NEXT TIME IT’S YOUR TURN TO LOSE YOUR LOVE, YOU GOT TO STAY AWARE

ALL OF THE PEOPLE MESSING AROUND, PLAYING THEIR GAMES OF WILL, OTHERS IN LIFE TOIL AND STRIVE AND THEN SETTLE FOR……

TOO MANY PEOPLE, TOO LITTLE LOVE FOR THEM ALL TO KNOW, NEXT TIME IT’S YOUR TURN TO LOSE YOUR LOVE, YOU GOT TO LET IT GO, LET IT GO, LET IT GO

‘COS LOVE IS A RIGHT LOVE IS A RIGHT AND A PRIVILEGE

LOVE IS A RIGHT YEAH YEAH YEAH

TOO LITTLE LOVE, LOVE IS A RIGHT AND A PRIVILEGE

GIGS/LES CONCERTS

2018.

JANUARY/JANVIER

12 — 20h30 – LE PETIT CHICAGO,TOULON,FRANCE (MAYA SOUL)
Considering the small room/stage and the lack of amps the band did well. I think we’re better off playing here in summer outside, or acoustically inside.
Quand on considère les restrictions de place et manque des amplis, le groupe a bien assuré. Je crois qu’on sera mieux dehors en été, et si on rejoue à l’intérieur ça doit être en version acoustique.

27 — 20h30 – MILVINS,COGOLIN,FRANCE (MAYA SOUL)
Excellent evening. Dancing and a very attentive public. We were pretty cramped into a side of the bar but we got our act together and everyone had a ball.
Excellente soirée. Les gens dansaient,ils étaient très attentifs et malgré la place assez restreinte on a réussi à bien jouer. Tout le monde s’est éclaté.

FEBRUARY/FEVRIER

09 — 19h – L’ESCALE,PUGET-VILLE,FRANCE,(MAYA SOUL)

Super concert.On a bien joué malgré certains problèmes sonore. Tout le monde a aimé.

10 — 19h – FETE PRIVEE,HYERES,FRANCE,(PICK BASS HELL)

MARCH/MARS
09 — 19h. – GARGANTUA, LA LONDE-LES-MAURES,FRANCE (DAVE SOLO)
After two previous postponements the Gargantua gig finally got going. I haven’t done a solo gig in many months and this evening showed me that I’m very rusty with some of the songs, mostly remembering lyrics.The sound wasn’t to great either To be expected after such a long lay-off. Most people didn’t realise it though, and the gig went down well. Lots of people.
Après être reportée à deux reprises,la soirée Gargantua a enfin eu lieu. Je n’ai pas joué une soirée solo depuis un bon moment et ce concert m’a montré que je suis bien rouillé en ce qui concerne le repertoire, notamment les paroles. Le son n’était pas au top non plus. Les gens n’en sont pas rendu compte et le concert s’est bien passé.Il y avait du monde.

17 — 19h – HOLIDAY MARINA RESORT, PORT GRIMAUD,FRANCE (DAVE SOLO ET DJ ST PATRICK’S DAY)

23 — 20h – LE PETIT CHICAGO,TOULON,FRANCE (DAVE & DGE)
First gig with Dgé went down very well.Very few mistakes and some good reception.Toulon is such a shitty place to find parking.I enjoyed the gig but not the get-in and get-out.
Premier concert avec Dgé était bien reçu. Très peu d’erreurs.Toulon est un cauchemar pour trouver du parking. La soirée m’a bien plus mais pas l’arrivé ni départ avec le matos.

30 — 19h – HOLIDAY MARINA RESORT, PORT GRIMAUD,FRANCE (DAVE SOLO)
Fairly routine gig. Nothing extraordinary.Not much interest around.The restaurant was open for the first night so most people were interested in the food.

JUNE/JUIN
01 — 20h – LE BREW PUB,HYERES, FRANCE (MAYA SOUL)
Cancelled due to a bad manager and a useless bitch of a programmer who have frankly done us a cunt’s trick. Because we played last week at Bières Du Monde; they cancelled our gig. If either of these incompetent fuck’s had the brains and foresight they were supposedly born with they might have told us that we shouldn’t play the place at any time near the Brew gig. But no, we’re supposed to be fucking TELEPATHS!!!IN ANY CASE, THEY DON’T GIVE US ENOUGH GIGS OR PAY ENOUGH TO WARRANT ANY EXCLUSIVITY…. BOYCOTT THIS FUCKING PLACE!!!
Annulé à cause d’un coup de pute par le patron de cet endroit et une grosse vache naze programmatrice. Apparemment puisqu’on a joué la semaine dernière au x Bières du Monde ils ont annulé cette date Si n’importe lequel de ces incompétents avait eu le cerveau et le sens d’organisation qu’ils sont censés d’avoir ils auraient communiqué qu’ils ne voulaient pas qu’on y joue , mais non, nous sommes censés d’être TELEPATHES!!!! DE TOUTE FAÇON, ILS NOUS DONNE NI ASSEZ DE PAIE NI ASSEZ DE DATES POUR POUVOIR EXIGER EXCLUSIVITE….BOYCOTTEZ CET ENDROIT!!

09 — 17h – PRIVATE PARTY,L’AYGUADE, FRANCE (MAYA SOUL)
One of those private parties where you play to about 20 people but they are easily worth 50. Great people. Super hosts Patrick & Sophie. Paella on the menu. We played very well.
Une de ces fêtes où on joue pour une 20aine de personnes qui valent 50 tellement l’acceuil et la reception sont bons. Les hôtes exceptionels Patrick et Sophie.On a super bien joué.

Problèmes de son. on en a chié. On n’a pas mal joué considérant, mais c’était dur.Pas grand monde non plus.

29 — 19h – GARGANTUA, LA LONDE-LES-MAURES,FRANCE (PICK BASS HELL)

Bon public ce soir. Beaucoup de danseurs. Inoubliable les gens qui dansaient le Madison sur “Won’t Get Fooled Again”

06 — 19h – HOLIDAY MARINA RESORT, PORT GRIMAUD,FRANCE (CABARET SON))
A bit of a mess since the compere asked me to manage the order of the music for the sketches and routines around 10 minutes before show start. I didn’t know what was going on and of course it fucked up at one point in the show. If that happens like that again I’ll refuse to do that for them in future.

Un petit peu bordelique puisque l’animateur m’a dit qu’il fallait que je gère la bande sonore du spectacle 10 minutes avant le spectacle. Sans repetition je ne savais pas ce qu’il fallait vraiment faire et bien sur ©a a bien merdé une fois dans le show. Si ça se passe comme ça encore une fois je refuserai de m’n occuper à l’avenir.

08 — 19h – HOLIDAY MARINA RESORT, PORT GRIMAUD,FRANCE (KARAOKE SON)
Surprisingly good standard of singing this evening.

The MC and the animation team haven’t got a clue about sound.
L’équipe d’animation n’a pas une idée de ce qu’il faut pour le son.

20 — 20h – LES SALINS, HYERES, FRANCE (PICK BASS HELL)
Full of old fogeys and sedentary spectators. We played ok but otherwise uninteresting.

Endroit bien sympa. On a bien joué. Dgé s’adapte bien à ma façon de gérer un set. Très bon burger à la fin.

08 — 21h – GECKO BAR, LE LAVANDOU, FRANCE (MAYA SOUL)
Difficult evening. The bar owner in a shitty mood and we were made to turn down the sound just a little too much to be able to get into it properly. The audience seemed to like it a lot though. Stressful evening before a packed out bar.
Soirée difficile,rendu difficile par un patron en très mauvais humour. Il nous a fait baisser le son juste un peu trop bas pour pouvoir rentrer dans le confort du jeu.Les spectateurs l’ont bien apprècié pourtant. Soirée de stresse devant un bar super rempli.
