Song club is a special night, once a month me thinks, in the "other" Newcastle (the Under-Lyme variety in Stoke) featuring original-only tunes performed by the artists who wrote them in the lovely environs of The Old Brown Jug, a real music club with a great history locally. Despite the very snowy weather, a good crowd eventually appeared and helped give us all a good time (save for the one or two obligatory nutters). Anyway, Song Club - Highly Recommended! I debuted a new song, "There She Moves", rusty to say the least and perhaps a draft one version in terms of it's arrangement, but the audience were lovely and forgiving. In addition to those I photographed and commented on below were the emotional and ethereal Rain. I'm sorry I couldn't stay around for the brilliant Giro Junkie but am glad I at least heard the urgent folk-rockers Headsticks soundcheck at least. Look out for them!
