A year old.
We can’t quite believe that we’ve been going a whole year. Our first official gig as Lost The Plot was on 24 February 2012, a year ago today at The Wheatsheaf in Frankwell, Shrewbury.
A lot has changed in that time – we’ve become slicker, more professional, tighter…
Forget all that, we’ve got more ducks. And hats. And soft toys.
Last night we held our First Birthday Party at Newport’s famed Cosy Hall. The gig wasn’t without its problems, with both guitar and bass disappearing at various points throughout the night (why couldn’t the drums do the same?!), but the atmosphere was great and the audience were receptive and welcoming from the opening restrains of Mrs Robinson, right through to the last fading chords of Always Look On The Bright Side. Ducks were thrown, a toddler beat up the bassist while he stood on a chair, Hugo was taken for a dance and balloons were burst. All in all, everything a good party should be!
We’re trying to get together a few videos and pics to put up on the site, so keep you eye on LostThePlotBand.co.uk for those. If you have anything you’d like to share with us, please send it to email@example.com
This Wednesday we’re playing in Stone at a pub called The Swan, a new venue for us. If you’re able to get there, please pop along. Their website, swaninnstone.co.uk, says that they have real music. Not for long! Although they have used an inordinate number of exclamation marks after our name on their gig guide, so perhaps they know…
We’ve then got a couple of weekends off as members of the band go globetrotting – Edcase is off to play in Denmark with his old bandmate, Martin Dale, while Clatter is visiting the Costa Del Reading. WeeMann will be travelling no further than Shrewsbury for a comedy show. See you in a couple of weeks for more mayhem.
