Wake up, yes, know that feeling, today is not a normal day. Launch day. Sore throat
Forget about sore throat, doesn’t every singer gets a sore throat at ‘important’ gigs?
Down to the Social Club, load in, set up, trying to slow down. Loving sound checks now. Off to play a couple of tracks on ‘Acid Country’ show on PBS FM. It’s an absolute pleasure to finally meet Dave, and he’s an absolute gent and is very generous with his time.
This is about as much as I can remember of the day, as our set went by so quickly, it was all a blur. I remember Yanto getting up and rocking the place, but I can’t remember much else. Just lots of very nice people coming saying ‘great set’. Maybe it’s nerves, or maybe that for the last two weeks before, we had been playing 3 hour sets up the east coast and not just an hour, it went by in a blip.
Back home for a shindig, plenty of snags and white bread, beers and smoke wafting around in the garden.
What a great day! Thanks to all those who came down, can you please remind me what happened at the gig?!!
