One down, nine to go!
Things got off to a slightly embarassing start when we realized we had left Ciaran’s cymbals in London. Uh, yeah. Thankfully the support band, a delightfully young group called the Dukes Jetty offered theirs. Thanks, guys!
(Like mid-60s Merseybeat? You’ll love the Dukes Jetty. Vintage down to the cuban heels and Burns guitar.)
Our set went down well. I managed to re-start the Blue to Black loop instead of Catch a Fire, and at one point punched the ceiling really hard (ow), but other than that had a great time. We played a couple of special tracks that we haven’t played in a really, really LONG time, but that were requested by folks in the forum. I won’t tell you what they were – don’t want to spoilt the surprise for those of you coming to a show this week!
Off to Portsmouth now…
