BB: Well, we, for a few years we had a sort of midsummer party. Erm… that was mainly when we went to Ingram Street because there was a, there were these pottery kilns there. And my father was in the meat trade, so Calum thought “Oh, could your dad not get us a pig?” So, I said “well I’ll ask him!” [laughter]. Anyway we did, we got a pig and we had a roast pig [laughter] party up in Ingram Street! Lots of drinks, and lots of barbequed pork! [laughter]. Aye no, those were good nights, yeah we had a bit of music going and it was usually pretty good.
