Lounge On The Farm

July 20, 2010

Hello there,

I feel an update is in order!

Lounge on the farm was fantastic, we ended up playing three sets-one on the sheep dip stage, where we were booked for, and two on the strummerville stage. The Sheep dip gig went well, apart from me breaking a string which meant we couldn’t play a couple of songs we wanted to. Crowd seemed to love it, even though it was a little early for people to be drunk to dance. The strummerville gigs went really well-thanks to trish and the gang for putting us on there. There was a really nice atmosphere over at the strummerville stage; so good that most of the people we knew spent the whole weekend there, sitting by the fire and getting up to general mischief.

The weekend was a succes for me apart from the last night where it started raining. I’d just finished watching fionn regan so had that fuzzy feeling. Just bought a cup of tea so now had that warm fuzzy feeling. I guess you could say i was happy. Then i got into my tent and it started monsooning it down. My tent didn’t have the outer sheet either (it’s a long story involving convectional evaporation, the wring types of pegs and mould. Big pieces of mould) so i got soaked. Miserable times guys…

But in the morning we went to morrisons for a nice fish and chips with the resident pensioners so it all worked out for the best.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Gig at Proud Galleries on the 15th. It was a really special gig and we all had a great time performing, even though we couldn’t see anything/body due to an overzealous smoke machine. Thanks also to Depot who played a ‘blinder’ and let us use all of their amps and drums and things.

Until next time

The gig at Proud Galleries went really well the other night. A strange mix of people, which i guess is to be expected in Camden on a Friday night, but we had a few people dancing down the front which was good to see. Is tropical played a blinder too. Love that song of their’s called ‘I think we’re alone’-sounds like i’ve know it all my life! Ended up in Punk in soho with one third of them and a few others: very drunk indeed. Thought i’d lost my wallet, which wouldn’t have been the first time. Got angry. Found it again. Was happy.

Just finished watching 24hour Party People. I’d been told i should see it and hadn’t had a chance to, but i recorded it when it was on the other night. It’s actually really good and i recommend it. Steve Coogan is great as Tony Wilson, although he pretty much plays Alan Partridge with longer hair. And there’s nothing wrong in that.

Just about to buy my tickets for the Hop Farm festival in Kent. It’s not far from where i live and therefore would be blasphemous not go, especially seeing a s a certain Mr B.Dylan happens to be playing! Can’t say no really…see you there?

There’s been a few more shows added to our calendar, so head on over to our myspace for more details. Tomorrow night should be good as we’re playing at the Scala for the Game launch night.
