And so; we made it back!
The last leg of tour saw crisis talks over tears and breakfast icecream sundaes post Barnsley Travelodge and my first drive in about 3 years, my 2D vision racing along a rainy motorway at night, and my first (semi-successful) experience of trying to use music as a tool of violence.
Our final stop was down in Poole, joined by the sound wizard extraordinaire Michael Tanner (who you might find has something new and exciting to offer, soon).
A charming fellow who recognised the distorted numbers stations samples in one of our songs, and is involved with a bunch called ‘Write Up The Arts’, documented this final night through a drawing:
If you missed out on this whirlwind of odd noise, you can read Drunken Werewolf’s take on our Bristol boat-based show, or Mike Hugh’s glowing account of our show at Night and Day in Manchester. Mike also took some great photos of the night.
Now is the moment to make a big shout out to ‘Mr Woodpecker’ himself; Benjamin Gregory. Fairly annoying, but essentially brilliant. Sound man, TM, driver, bandmate, hero. Well done. A thousand ‘thank you’s.
If you still want more- come see what we’ve been up to at our headline London show on 14th November at The Queen’s Head (The 405 say it is ‘unmissable’) with Abi Wade and Jack Cheshire, or at The End festival on 16th November.
