Southsea Fest

Hoi hoi all

Southsea Fest this year was probably our best gig so far in my opinion…we’ve had the pleasure of being involved in it in some way or another ever since it’s humble beginnings 5 years ago. It never fails to be anything less than a most splendid day. Although, when we played last year we had a monumental technical meltdown with an erroneous bottle of water being sent tumbling (in Matrix-style slo-mo) onto our power supplies just as we stepped on stage, thus shorting out all our amps and fx pedals. Not ideal. I think we slayed (slaid? slew?) them demons good n proper this year, mind…

This year’s fest was a huge event for our wee home town so a round of applause is due for all involved. 150 odd bands and 15 venues involved with some of the most exciting up and coming artists around – Clock Opera at the Wedge were outstanding as was Fionn Regan in the splendour of The Kings Theatre. Gutted I missed Dry the River and couldn’t get in to our Dawn Chorus/RSP pal Kyle D Evans solo set but had a great night all round nevertheless. For some reason or another we started on rounds of Port in the evening. Odd. But pleasant.

Anyway – here’s some footage of us, also in the lovely setting of The Kings Theatre, playing ‘Film Noir’ & ‘Reykjavik 101’…see you at next years fest eh?

Next step. BACK IN TO THE RECORDING STUDIO. FINALLY.
