With a crew numbering what felt like a thousand, we were swarmed by incredibly helpful and friendly tech students, willing to do pretty much anything we needed. The option to have usual heavy lifting and set up of our equipment done for us was dangled ever-so temptingly before our eyes, but unfortunately in that typically awkward, British way, we threw them a polite “We're fine thanks”, before continuing to struggle on ourselves..
Again, this gig was entirely organised by students with the guiding hand of their tutor, so it wasn’t without its problems, but HELL was it fun! The students did everything they could to make the day go smoothly for us, and a show that we were initially worried about being a flop turned out to be a right laugh, with a brilliant crowd. And heck, Wolverhampton, we’ve missed you - even the high as a kite guy outside the betting shop telling us where the best food in the city can be found (Yates’ apparently).
Anyway, TO THE FUTURE. With our summer of gigs started off solidly, we are looking ahead to our next appointment down with the excellent Arthur Walwin recording our next bit of noisy stuff for you to listen to, so you’ll be listening to a shiny new track within a few weeks!
One gig we haven’t secured yet is the a support slot for the fabulous Stakeout, who have decided, despite everyone’s objections, to call it a day and go out with one final gig on the 30th of August. We want to be part of that gig because not only do we want to give Stakeout a big send off (as we’ve seen them doing great things and tried to take advice where we can) but also because we think that their fans would really warm to us.
As such, we need EVERYONE reading this blog to go suggest us on their status asking for support act suggestions:
GO NOW, DO IT.
