All smiles at Sosho after a rugged, dogged six hour performance. A shot of vodka to speed to 344 home in the relentless rain. It’s been a crazy day: the Terry / Bridge pantomime and a severe and unwarranted loss at the Bridge; a quick chat with SP and Y-May in Farm Road; then back across the river and across the tracks to Coronation Street to prepare for the evening. Which ended, all smiles at Sosho…

All smiles at the Quality Chop House, progressive working class caterer up there in Farringdon. A simple night out, enjoying riding the buses and trains, crossing the river, in the thick of it, at the heart of the grime and the glamour, tiny dots, tracked by satellite, snaking through the city.

For the record we played these tunes in this order: 1 Swimming 2 Roll On 3 Backwards 4 All You Need 5 Morning 6 Corner And it sounded great and we played well and Micky said it was the best gig we have done. And even though my fingers felt like sausages I enjoyed playing the bass in such a beautiful space.
