BRDCST 2018 is a 5 day indoor festival in Brussels packed with interviews, concerts and films. Saturday the 7th April was curated by the Sleaford Mods and we were well chuffed to be asked to play. As you can imagine there was a great line up and we absolutely loved it.
Big thanks to the Sleaford Mods & Steve Underwood for asking us, thank you AB team for looking after us and everyone that came to see us.
The links below will give you a flavour of the day or will bring back some great memories.

I was asked to provide a clip of one of our performances. As I obviously can’t film myself I rely on you to do the photos/clips and I am always impressed by the quality of it all. Thank you so much for sharing them.
Here 3 clips from Mark Brown that I found. Thanks Mark, I really appreciate it.
Playing with Paranoid Visions in Tokyo was certainly special. The people we met could not have been more friendly and helpful. We were looked after from the moment we arrived to when we were on the plane again which was a good thing as nearly all of the writing is in Japanese.
The support bands we played with were fantastic and I absolutely loved listening to them. It’s a shame it’s so expensive for them to come over to Europe as I know they would go down here really well.
