Brighton, Cornwall, Clapham and Epsom. It's been a busy July. Before that we were in glorious Somerset and the wonderful Kelly's Bar (re-named from the Gallery), Hendon.
The prize for the hardest load-in goes to Polhawn Fort, with a choice between some steep spiral stairs, steep, gravel-covered, uneven stairs or long, long and steep ramp...but the views far from made up for it.
It was a stunning wedding and the crowd were awesome. We have since added a trolley to our equipment list!
Chilling on a beach and eating fresh sea-food before a gig is literally the best thing ever.
The second prize for load-in difficulty goes to Horatio's, on Brighton Pier. A buggy of equipment is escorted down the very, very busy pier, while we all try and find parking spaces miles away!
Once again - it was all totally worth it. Despite the beautiful weather outside we had people of all ages rocking out with us.
Last night we were in Headley, at a beautiful house, just past the wonderfully titled Pleasure Pit Road (it also did not go unnoticed that Loretta Lodge was nearby!) By the end of the gig we had a bass drum held together by chewing gum and gaffer tape and a dodgy monitor input, but we didn't care - rock stops for no one and nothing!
Venn Street Records in Clapham, also did not disappoint. Octavist Music live-streamed it over the internet. Given it was the first time this had been done, there were some teething problems...but the internet is a wonderful thing and soon we hope to bring you better streaming in the future, although nothing beats being there in person.
Next week we are at The Red Cross Inn and then it's the big one...The Bulldog Bash! We can't wait!!
