What a hectic and fantastic start to our Irish leg of the ‘Get Out of Bed’ tour. Best laid plans and all that… We got off the Ferry about 4:30pm and the plan was to go set up camp (literally) at a campsite in Naas, equi-distant between Dublin and Portlaoise (the location of the next gig). We hadn’t figured on the Dublin vs Kilkenny hurling final. Naas is south of Dublin, Kilkenny is south of Dublin…aarggh! After 1hour and 1 mile travelled we turned back and headed for the first of our two gigs of the evening - Saucy Sundays at The Grand Social. For some of the guys this was the first...

So fresh from the EP Launch we ventured over the border, well Manchester. The Night & Day to be exact, a cracking music venue. This was one date Dan couldn’t make so after bumping into Mr Dawkins at the 360 gig we asked him to step in – “Yeah man, I’ll vibe it,” he said – so that was a yes then! It was good crowd, happy to make plenty of noise which is always good. It’s nice to know your audience is actually listening. We must mention Jonny on the door (top man) and a particular thanks to Joe for working wonders on the sound desk – cheers guys. I really like the feel...

Okay there were no rocket-propelled grenades but we did launch the EP, sell CD’s and get recorded by the BBC! Yeah really - the performance was recorded for BBC Introducing and will feature on Alan Raw's show, which goes out on BBC Radio Leeds. Alan is a well known supporter of new music. He had us on the show previously for the launch of the ‘Speak Easy’  E.P. and we’ll be back for an interview next Thursday – don’t miss it! It was a top night with three other great acts: Neve, Nigel Passey and Love of the Brave [There was something familiar about the guy on the semi-acoustic but I can’t...

TG: Rehearsing, Printing and Copying. Cant be a REAL MAN!

My wonderful girlfriend keeps telling me – “Men can’t multitask” (apparently reading on the loo doesn’t count!) However – On Sunday we shot and edited a promotional video for our E.P. Launch. On Monday after getting the EP mixes back from Roni I took them down to Warwick Pilmer & Tony Bonner at Clipstore in Kirkstall to do the mastering. Took all afternoon but really pleased with the finished product.  Left the boys at Clipstore to do the copying and printing of the CD and went home to upload the tracks to iTunes ahead of the launch on Friday.  Finalised the design for the inlay...

TG: All the worlds a stage

When the bard penned the immortal words ‘All the world’s a stage’ I wonder if he had the White Horse in mind. You see there isn’t one! But that’s fine – we like it like that. One week on a pitch in front of 14,000 people the next at the end of a room with 100 or so in your face. It was a great atmosphere you really know whether your audience likes you or not when they’re so close you can tell what aftershave they're wearing. Feedback is fairly instantaneous when people are two feet away. So it’s somehow all the better when an intimate crowd like you, especially when they’re...
