I did a little tour, accompanied by my friend Kev from The Fierce And The Dead on driving duties:
Sat Jun 9 2012
3:00pThe studio Hartlepool
5 hour drive there, 5 hour drive back. I admit it, I didn't look at the map :)
The gig seemed to go well, busy venue, nice crowd :) One down, 7 to go. Steve the promoter was a lovely bloke. Met up with lots of people again, DPRP types etc. A few familiar faces make a big difference. Shook a lot of hands. Sadly I missed the other bands due to driving back - we were only there a couple of hours. Torrential rain on the journey, some of the roads were flooded. Scary.
Sat Jun 16 2012
8:00pThe Wesley Centre, Maltby
With Manning. Thanks to my friend Mel for driving me to this one. Manning have a lot of kit!
Nice crowd again - here they are:
It was a bit like playing in a lecture theatre at a school. Went down well :)
I enjoyed Manning a lot, they reminded me of ELO who i love (yes, I have the ELO box set, the 80s disk is shit thou). Lovely people.
Nice to see Miles and the CRS crew and meet up with some facebook/forum type friends who came to the gig, I really appreciate it. Having people make the effort to see you is a massive thing, especially when they often have to travel a long way to see you.
