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”
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”
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.”
That section of the song truly is epic prog wanking. It’s a fantastic catchy song with a great hook. See me play my first gig with Strangefish on 5th May, The Robin 2, Bilston.
A very strange weekend. Friday night was a late one for me. Hannah was in Bridlington and I was called out. A great but busy finish to a hectic week. Saturday Saturday was somewhat of an unusual day. A weather bomb was set to hit us from about 2pm, and sure enough it did. RarelyContinue reading “Another gig weekend.”
It might seem unusual to have a rock/pop band for an 80th Birthday, but the birthday boy has followed us for a number of years now so it seemed apt. The hotel it was held at was a great place. Top end of Heckmondwike; a place called Healds Hall. It was an early start asContinue reading “An 80th Birthday”
Last night’s private party was a rather good gig. Ok, so the room was bijou – and as a result the stage area was very limited, but we managed to load in and set up in less than an hour, with a little more time to run through some of the newer tracks. For theContinue reading “Gig night”
Bank holidays seem to have this strange ability to become two gig weekends, this was no exception. Saturday was Ingoldmells – a tediously long drive out there, followed by a rather questionable gig, followed by a tedious drive home and a 3am bedtime. The weather was beautiful though, we sat outside until after 7. TheContinue reading “Double Banger again.”
It’s at a rather nice spa this time. Ye Olde Bell. It’s very popular around here especially as the facilities are supposed to be top notch. We loaded in… Set up on the rather bijou stage, and waited for the crowd too appear. It was a very private function with rather fancy food. Unfortunately noneContinue reading “Gig day!”
Saturday – Face The Music in Middleborough. Sunday – Ethryll at Rotherham Trades. So that was the weekend! Alton Towers, then two gigs! Now I’m knackered!
