It’s been a busy couple of weeks, so much so that we haven’t had a chance to blog, so here’s a quick catchup on what’s been going on in Plotland.
As far as we know, the world record attempt, of which we were one of many acts, was a success, with the all day variety show beating the old record by over an hour.
The following week saw our return to Scotland to take part in the Forfarfest music festival – 3 days of music in pubs all over Forfar. We played two sets at the Chapter & Verse over the weekend, interspersed with gigs in Dundee. It was exhausting but great fun and we’re currently in the midst of editing a video of our trip, watch this space…
We also took the opportunity to buy some new matching shirts:
Returning home, the next weekend was another busy one with us starting on Friday evening at The Malthouse in Ironbridge to a packed house (our biggest crowd in there so far), followed by a Saturday afternoon gig at the Newport Carnival and Baschurch’s Admiral Duncan in the evening.
This weekend was a quiet one – one gig on Friday at The Hen & Chickens in Bridgnorth. The crowd was small but enthusiastic and we’ll be back there again in September.
This week we’re off up to Bury again to Molloys. Last time we played there we were sans drummer, so the locals have no idea what we’ll be like at full strength… Then, on Saturday, we’ll be playing for the Adams Grammar School Summer Ball. Next Wednesday (26th) we’ll be back off up to The Swan in Stone.
