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!

Angry Badger Himself and Nick with me.
The Longest BYs set-list to date?

Blue Yellow Chili Peppers ?

Artists we've been compared to include; The Dandy Warhols, The The, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Modern Lovers, Patti Smith and Radiohead, never the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But Hayley, myself and Emm from The BYs are huge fans of The Chilis, all went to shows of theirs while they've been in the UK and.... Hayley appeared as a super-sized super-fan photo (on the right) behind the band as part of The Chili's encore show in Birmingham. Awesome!

BYs 2nd Birthday & Boxjam.

It was also our 2nd Birthday gig (hence the "I am 2" badges). Lots of dosh was raised for Oxfam and a good time was had.
