All killer no filler...and no tea

So last night - post gig practice - always a strange one. We had a play through the two new songs and a couple of old ones that we need to bring up to speed for the Brentford show on the 29th.
Seven Foot Drop...Dave said "Let's take out the bit where we do nothing. You know - the bit where we're just waiting to play the next bit." Then I also stopped playing quite so much and slashed some chords in there rather than chugging all the way through. And there you have it. Less is more. A good song became a great song. 100% more lively. Looking forward to playing it again in its new form on 29th January.
Oh!...and no cup of tea!

New songs at the Half Moon

Played a good show at the Half Moon. The two new songs 'The New Romance' and 'Seven Foot Drop' went well and went down well. Did an encore and a song by special request. Can't be bad :-)
Looking forward to an even bigger show and bigger crowd on 29th January at St Pauls in Brentford.
