From The West Unto The East
A busy but very enjoyable week for us with a string of gigs in York and then over to the east coast. Monday we were at the Black Swan where we joined Freewheelin and Blonde On Bob for a night of Bob Dylan songs. Great audience, great night. The following night we went along to Chris Helme's Ruby Tuesday (after going to see The Punk Singer - check it out, excellent) We love playing there and love Chris. Wednesday we played a set at the Lowri Evans gig, again really good night. Great to play the night with our Speak Easy chums Waste of Paint.
Then it was over to Driffield (few songs at Hardwired where Dogfinger Steve helped us out on Highway 101), Beverley (a return to one of our favourite venues/nights - the Speak Easy at the Royal Standard) and finally a lovely lunchtime session at the very lovely Pavilion Cafe in Whitby.
Our main preoccupation though beyond the gigs has been album related.At last the CDs have arrived and you can buy a copy of North Country via the website. They look great and we've been busy sending out review copies to the great and the good. It's already resulted in some nice radio plays/comments and all bodes well for the future. On Friday we'll be back on Vixen FM (101.8) where we'll be playing the whole of the album live on Bill Horncastle's show The Fox's Den. Starts at 9.00pm, runs till midnight.
