Just happy to be here!
Posted on October 4th, 2012
We are just 4 dates in & we’ve already blown up a PA, played to an audience dressed as school children, (playfully) abused a camera man, been to Lakeside, met a man who makes MRI scanners, stolen a copy of Heat, bought a second hand synth, bought a second hand sampler, learnt that Merz’s voice is uber tingly live, eaten all the grapes we can find, and drank at least 3 bottles of cough syrup. I’d say it bodes well for the rest of the tour!
Also it is becoming apparent that the boys find SWW pleasantly distracting, so from now on she will have to wear a bag over her head.
We’ve even had venues try to book us again before we’ve even finished the run, that can’t be a bad thing can it? Alas this is a one time deal!
So much damn fun this touring lark, if only I could do it more often. We, well me anyway, are just happy to be here!
