Two gigs and a wedding.

Like a rather memorable 1990’s film I pretty much woke up yesterday going fuck! Fuck! FUCK! FUCKERTY! Two gigs this weekend, and add onto that a wedding and it’s a recipe for exhaustion. The Wedding So the wedding was at 2 yesterday, at Goldthorpe church – not too far away at least. I arrived inContinue reading “Two gigs and a wedding.”

An emergency gig.

So on Friday I thought I’d got a weekend off. How wrong I was! Friday night had me working and logging power consumption on an electrical installation. What did amaze me, however, is how little it did actually use! Until you realise that everything uses so much less energy because all the lighting is LED.Continue reading “An emergency gig.”

The epic gig.

Yesterday was yet another epic run out for a gig. I’m getting tired of these two hour journeys now (*there’s light at the end of the tunnel as a local agent has now took us on). The A1 all the way up to Newcastle for a change – no A19 required. A few changes thoughContinue reading “The epic gig.”

Of confusing gigs and floods

Yesterday was gig day. I shared a post originally stating that I was playing at North Ormesby Institute. Well as it happens that was not quite right. As it turned out we were actually booked to play North Ormesby WMC, a very different club two miles down the road. We only found this out thenContinue reading “Of confusing gigs and floods”

North Ormesby tonight

After a change in the billed event (which was originally the evil load of Cargo Fleet club) we’ve now been moved to North Ormesby. A much nicer load in and pretty much flat if I remember right, plus there’s food across the road so I can have a pizza if I want. Being back outContinue reading “North Ormesby tonight”

A few photos from Bentley

I know it was over a week ago, but it’s taken a while for these to come in. Mostly camera phone photos I think, but it just goes to show you how the cameras built into our phones have really come on – especially when you look back through my blog (which now goes backContinue reading “A few photos from Bentley”

Fishy Happenings

My third gig with Strangefish last night. It was a long day… I started at 7:30am – I had planned to be at the venue at around 10:30 and with a 2 hour journey ahead I needed to be ready. Freshly showered and breakfasted I set off – only to make much better time thanContinue reading “Fishy Happenings”

Gig the Second

Two in a row is always tiring. The second one was Easington; a small town on the Durham Heritage Coast just north of Middlesbrough. So yet another journey up our favourite dual carriageway, the A19, and a fairly easy ground floor load (with possibly the weirdest load in door) and we were up and running.Continue reading “Gig the Second”

Hatfield – the third.

Having looked through my photos and my timeline it appears to be the third time we’ve played Hatfield Main club. A leftover from the old Hatfield Main pit and now standing at the edge of a housing estate and with miles and miles of desolation and spoil heaps on the other side. Regardless of locationContinue reading “Hatfield – the third.”
