BRDCST at Ancienne Belgique, Brussels April 2018

Photo taken by Simon Balaam.

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.

Tokyo, Japan 16th and 17th January 2018

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.

Tokyo by day.
Tokyo by night.

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.

The sound was superb and there was a great crowd.

       

Great to see that recycling was a big thing, though I had no idea what to put in what bin.
Second night in between sound check and doors. We’re all a bit jetlagged and tired.

 

 

Thank you Tokyo.

Punk Features on ITV Anglia – 9th, 10th January 2018

In December I did an interview with Matthew Hudson from ITV Anglia at the Birdcage. He has created two punk features which will be running on ITV Anglia coming Tuesday and Wednesday (9th & 10th January) at 6pm. I haven’t seen it myself but apparently I’ll appear in the first feature.
Looking forward to see both of them.
I did play with Crass in Norwich but can’t remember the venue, in 2015 I played with Slice Of Life at The Owl Sanctuary and in 2016 we played at the Birdcage. It’s a vibrant city and worth checking out the market with some fantastic vegan and veggie food stalls.
