First of all, thank you to everyone who came down to support us at The Firehouse in Southampton on Saturday night. It was nice to see loads of familiar faces after the Christmas break, and also play a few new Live arrangements which we’ve been working on.
There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes over the past few weeks. Also, we were recently approached about having our own brand of Real Ale which was an interesting thought… however Mr Pope is a big fan of the stuff and would never turn up to a show sober again. We have also been working on some new t-shirt designs which are looking really cool.
Speaking of Popey… If some of you don’t already know, our beloved drummer is a big fan of the Bee Gees. As there was a tribute act in town on Friday he decided to book some tickets (and dragged Ricky along). However when they arrived at the venue and mentioned how excited they were about seeing the act, they quickly found out that Popey hadn’t booked tickets to the Bee Gees at all, BUT, the Bob Marley tribute instead! Quite a contrast in genre isn’t it… However we’re pleased to report that Popey had a wicked night, and Ricky….. well, he won’t be asking Popey to book any future events.
We’re looking forward to playing The Swan in Woolston this Saturday night. It’s been a long time and a good crowd is anticipated which we always love. If you’re in the area, get yourselves involved.
