Happy New Year from Plotland, we hope you all had a great Christmas and are ready for some stupidity in 2014.
The year got off to a cold start. Following on from last year’s appearance at Newport’s January Jog, we were invited back. Although it was cold, it was the rain and wind which really bit in and made us question the intelligence of an outdoor gig in early January. This being a case of adding some background music while people run around a muddy field in aid of MacMillan Cancer Research, the audience isn’t really there to see us, but we had some great feedback from those close to our position and there were many smiles and people singing along. A warming curry in the pub afterwards and the day was done.

This weekend we played again at The Malthouse in Ironbridge. We’ve enjoyed playing here since we played at the staff Christmas party last year and this week’s gig was no exception. There were plenty of people at the front dancing, singing and (in the case of a certain Mr Rowe particularly) throwing ducks at us. Jason Chambers wrote an excellent review of the gig on Facebook:
My review of Lost The Plot at the Malthouse.
There was a band and some cider and some alcohol and some cider.
That’s all I remember!
We can confirm that he did seem to be enjoying the cider. We hope he enjoyed the music too!
You can judge for yourself here as, thanks to Mathew Thomas, we’ve got a new video on our YouTube channel, our version of Avicci’s Wake Me Up. Between this and Lonnie Donegan’s Puttin’ On The Style we can honestly say we cover number ones from 1957 to 2013 and everything in between!
On Wednesday we’ll be playing at Harper Adams in Newport, before heading over to Bayston Hill, Shrewsbury next Saturday for our first gig at The Beeches and then on Sunday we’re back at The Wrekin in Wellington.
