Big thank you to everyone who came along to the gig last night. Massive thanks to Kev & crew at the Anchor. It was so good to have a party again.
If anyone videoed us, especially that song ‘Jonny Coalboat’s Blackout Blues’ (for the french film), please can you let us know, cos we’d love to use it as the video for our song to put in the film. We’ll post it up on our website when it’s finished and we’ll get you a beer.
Tabi is back in London for one night only, so we are celebrating by having a gig at our favourite pub – The Anchor in Clapton. Our friends Mid Life Crisis (a band made up of people who all work at Crisis Homeless Shelters) are joining us and we know that it’ll be a great night.
Please be covid aware – do a lateral flow test before you come and please stay at home if you are unwell.
This is a few weeks after the event, cos life got in the way of posting stuff… so, sorry for the delay.
We had a fantastic time at Wotsit Called Fest. Massive thank you to Sheila for standing in on drums for us and doing an excellent job.
The sun was out, so were all the fab people of Hastings. It was a great atmosphere, the day was packed with a brilliant mix of great bands, we made new friends and ate chips on the beach, and we LOVED IT.
