    Another decent review!

    In previous bands, the reviews generally went along the lines of 'shit sandwich' so I'm enjoying this!

    "The missing link between The Kinks and The Smiths" was in a review I read last night. Hard to get much higher praise than that really.

    Have to say that Marc Riley was a really nice chap and I loved his enthusiasm for the tunes he was playing. He was happily playing air guitar/drums/kybds to every record he played and he - along with the staff there - went out of his way to find a cymbal when the one I was promised had gone walkabout from the studio. Had a nice chat with him after and he asked us to pose for a picture with him. It was a really friendly, professional and welcoming environment.

    I briefly glimpsed Maconie as he gave a wave from the control booth. I did get to walk in the Blue Peter garden outside though!

    I like to think we're not quite in the Creme Brulee league, but the gigs went better than I expected. It's been a stressful (and bloody brilliant) week - live BBC Radio session on Monday and two sold out shows on the weekend - but I'm glad I managed to play those tricky albums without too much of a fuck up. I even managed to get through the 5/4 song without getting lost.

    It was nice to get my camp glittery kit out again even though having such a small bass drum (18") leads to the dreaded stage creep and I had problems with the BD pedal attaching to the riser that's needed to ensure the beater lines up properly...

    *There's some related discussion here if anyone is interested in my dilemma. I'm thinking about buying a larger BD and covering it in a similar finish.
