Played in Dublin for the first time last week at the Temple Bar Music Centre – great venue, great crowd, great gig. Nice to have a weekend away. We may try to organise more of these trips to foreign(ish) climes if anyone knows of any places we might play, please get in touch.
We now have a new London date booked – April 28th at the Hope and Anchor – and we are re-booked for the HITS punk festival in Morecambe in July.
Thanks to everyone who came along to Zak’s in Milton Keynes last night – that was a good one. We played a new song – 48 Hours – we now have 45 songs in total including one for every letter of the alphabet except Q, U, V, W, X, Y, Z – anyone got any ideas?
Last night the filming we did for the BBC in 1999 finally got shown. We were in episode five of the BBC2 drama, In the Land of Plenty. The scene is a Clash gig in 1977 and features footage of the Clash cut together with footage of us miming to White Riot and I Fought the Law. It didn’t look bad, although we were very much in the background.
Sadly our esteemed Topper, Dan Barrow has left to play overseas. He is now a member of the Blues Brothers touring entourage in Germany playing a bierkeller near you soon. Mr Adam Aggiss, he of recent deps, is the new man. Topper’s dead. Long live Topper.
The band’s autumn season has kicked off with some storming gigs – they know how to have a girl’s night out in Corby that’s for sure! And Leamington Spa is a good town too. We now have a decent London gig set for the Hope and Anchor on October 7th.
