    About a year ago I played at The Galileo in Madrid. One of the most beautiful venue I've ever set foot in with a great in-house crew. Fond memories!

    So we've finished our last gigs for the year, with the keyboard wearing a particularly fine prog rock cape for our show last night in Manchester.


    It's been a brilliant year: a BBC live session and a well received album out in February, and then 31 gigs covering the UK, Germany, France, Belgium and Spain. I am a jammy bastard! :)

    I rather enjoyed hearing "URBAN75!" being shouted out from the crowd at our Sheffield gig last night!

    Still loving every second! (Well not right now as we're stuck in SF airport waiting for a heftily delayed flight to San Diego).

    Seattle was an amazing show - we had four encores and ended up playing a seriously under-rehearsed 'Jacob's Ladder'. Portland was pretty good and we had another cracking show in San Francisco last night with another 4 encores and the crowd still wanting more!

    I'm not sure tonight's show is going to be that busy, but we've been made 'pick of the week' for our final show in LA on Sunday so hopefully we'll get a decent crowd.

    Last show tonight in LA. After 8 gigs and three radio sessions in 9 days, shitloads of travelling and minimal sleep, I'm starting to burn out but hopefully I'l have enough energy for tonight. I fucking love being on tour, even if it is really hard work at times.

    That 12th October Bristol gig is at The Crofters' Rights in Stokes Croft ..... very possibly tempting! :) The write-up for The Monochrome Set at the foot of the events list on that link is interesting ....
    As far as I know? there's nothing else on the calendar for us at that date ... (nothing written down yet anyway :oops: ;) ).
    The beer choice at the CR is good (albeit a tad expensive :hmm: ) ... still, we know most other quality pubs in central Bristol for pre-gig time ... :) :D
