Happiness is a pink flange.
Hayley pre-gig on the tiny acoustic stage.
I was tempted to name this post after the old showbiz adage & song "It's not where you start but where you finish" as we arrived to Friday's venue, late, grumpy and after having found we had left a cable-bag at base-camp, pretty pissed off. So a soundcheck-less gig ensued and after some sound-tweaking by our Angry Badger Friend, Nick (on his night off!). After a while the sound was sorted (thanks Nick!) and the crowd were a wonderfully warm and enthusiastic bunch. This was at The Nag's Head in Crewe, an almost unbelievably cosy pub with well kept real ales and a growing reputation as a superb little music venue. When I say little, the stage was only the size of some drum risers but with everything going for it, we didn't care a jot. It was also one of the longest set-lists we've done to date and it was the debut for new song "Big Low Copper Moon" and my new (pink) flanger. Both went down a treat. Thanks everyone!
