LOL, mate - you did draw me - a bit. :mrgreen: I'm a bit self-conscious and defensive about this unpolished new project. :lol: I forgot that you and Dale were probably mates. Kel(the singer) and Wayne (the bassplayer) are also rabid Stranglers fans, so I took the bait - you bastard! :mrgreen:

You certainly did take the bait.

Ok..IMHO...if I was in a pub listening to your new band at full volume with a few pints inside me, well..I would be trying to grab the mic all night...you know that?

Don't think the vid actually does you much justice though...sorry for being controversial but the sad little man that I am just has to speak his mind.

Yeah, it's a bit distorted, it's in the daytime etc. but I think the enthusiasm for the material shines through :grin: That set got us a full page colour article in the Rotherham local paper today, mind.

It was almost eclipsed by the pigeon clog-fettling festival article though. :wink:

Cheers, Beryl. BTW, we're second on the bill to Straighten Out at the Doncaster Mapfest in August. Should be a laugh. :D

Hi, I've just got back from holiday, and I don't have a modern 'phone!

Yes, that's true, we're no longer playing mapfest. The story is that the provider of the sound system for the punk stage is unwilling to cater for more than three bands, so as the last band to express an interest we were the first to be dropped. Although from second on the bill to not playing at all is a hell of a drop, make of it what you will. :roll:

The Hallcross Doncaster gig has been moved to TONIGHT. Slight misunderstanding with the Land lady. :roll:
