!! TOUR TIME !!
We played last night with our friends, the wonderful BELLIES at the Old Blue Last and we also met Grass Widow for the first time, they are AMAZING and we're super excited to be touring with them. Apart from a weekend tour we did with Bloody Knees back in August 09 we have never been on tour so we are just a bit EXCITED.
i drew this wierd poster, it has the Groke on it from the Moomins, a spirit who freezes everything she hovers over, apparently she symbolises depression and anxiety but i hope Tove Jansson would appreciate us appropriating the groke for our tour mascot, becuase playing music and creating positive things is like a way of overcoming bad energy or getting through the end of summer?? dance your cares away!!
We also have a load of new merch to take on tour, bags and t shirts courtesty of Andrew Milk (you should be able to get them from his webiste soon)
i have been hand sewing (really slowly, rachel is going to show me how to do it faster when we are in the car!) covers for the bootleg tape we made - it's a raucous and kinda messy recording of a show we played only last weekend! Club Milk is releasing it, its green and the covers are made of cool afro-fabric!
phew! time to go to brighton!
hope to see some of you guys
