Just to follow on from the last post I have collected some of my favourite comments that have appreaed against my work.  Enjoy the balanced and well critiqued commentary that I have been subjected to.

He is a twat, basically he doesnt like me because i write for the Ocelot and his competition, he was sacked from their because he is a shit writer……Swindons music scene does not need arrogant lying fuckers like that.

Remember this guy writes the music stuff for the Swindon Advertiser, what hope do young new bands have with this tool writing about them (or not as the case is as his 40 year old + mates bands tend to get all the space)?

“Personally i think Green Man blog is the result of a bitter failed musician who gets his kicks from putting people down”

 – Mark E Pitt


“You was the guy I kicked out of a gig last year , who knows nothing about music and likes R&B .you was lucky you didn’t get your head kicked in that night Mr football player next time i see you watch you back . ”

– The Ashun


If you write shit like that about my band again im gonna burn your house down with you in it

 – The Ashun


Talking of doubters and piss-takers, it was pleasing to see the very same people who have never got a good word to say about the bands at the Rolly , staying all night at the Rolly , and even having a chat to the band at the end of the evening at the Rolly , yes it’s really true , “they” slag off the “crap bands” I book in the Rolly/Furnace and then they book the very same bands in other pubs /venues around town , remember, you saw them first at the ROLLY !!
still, there is certainly no greater compliment than that!
People are strange…

Who the hell is Dave Franklin, and why does his opinion count ffs? Anyone know.

– Anon


Why does the Adver give this twat the time of day when there are much better writers out their just waiting for a job like this, which they would be able to do much much better.

– Anon



…a pretentious prick, why not use language that everyone can understand rather than trying to sound like some toffy nosed ponce.

– Anon


Ive noticed the bias as well in Mr Frankins writing! Besides I hear he is only returning to the Ocelot cos the guy doing the music reviews (n.b. – Mark Pitt) didn’t have the time and Jamie Hill (editor of Ocelot) had to get someone in quick.

– Anon


“Dave is just trotting out the lazy, blinkered perception that people have of the (Furnace) these days” 

– DJ Dust (Darren Whiting)


the good ol green man has fogotten to support his own music scene instead vowing to wank over quasi unknown bands in a very high fidelity esque way 

– Rick Carey


The guy is always nasty about The Furnace, The Rolleston and the bands that play there, it’s a wonder that they even let him through the door with the crap he writes about the place. As usual its jealously that drives it, i’d like to see him DJ or put a gig on, then we could all have a good laugh at the prick!……….well he is always slagging off the bands that status books and never seems to have a good word to say about the place, if that is not being nasty I don’t know what is.
