Oct 25th (Saturday) - The Player's Bar
A great place to play. Large dedicated room with four foot raised good-sized stage with excellent lighting system and superb sound system with a great engineer provided. We were told that we sounded great. We did two great sets in front of a small small audience of twenty or so but which apparently changed of personnel regularly - so that ultimately, maybe some sixty people heard us. On finishing, an encore was forcibly demanded and we did a great version of BLACK NIGHT which was ecstatically received.
We would love to play here again if we could guarantee a bigger crowd!!!
Unfortunately we got no video of this event. The manager tells me that the club may have taken some and may upload it to youtube. Will post it here should that happen.
Oct 21st (Tuesday) - The Old Printworks
Sadly, two members of the Broken Flowers Band, booked in to play here on this night were unwell, so we stood in for them. We had a few technical problems which didn't help in the first set, with one of the PA speakers blowing. Luckily we had a replacement and the second set went down really well. Max, the promoter, was a great host and we hope to play there again in the new year.
Oct 11th (Saturday) - The Glyde House
The less said about this gig the better. We played to an empty room and as we were not getting paid, we packed up after the first set. However, Mandy Myatt said we sounded great which is at least something.

Sept 20th (Saturday) - The New Roscoe
Leeds, Bristol Street
A great venue which has promoted many many great bands and it was an honour to play there Saturday.
Dave (bass) set up the PA superbly with the best monitor set up we have had to date and all this while being very poorly.
Again, not a huge crowd but once again very supportive, knowledgeable

and to our performance of - Need Your Love So Bad
S ept 12th (Friday) - The Bull and Fairhouse
A very nice pub with a great atmosphere and obviously a great promoter of live music. There wasn't a huge crowd, but those that were there were oviously knowledgeable and appreciative.
The powers that be liked us and said that we would be welcomed back.
Unfortunately, the video taken could not cope with the flashing blue lights and the little camcorder was too close to the band, so no associated videos or stills from this venue.
The band would be very happy to play there again.
Sept 9th (Tuesday) - The Chemic
A small intimate setting with a maximum of five in the audience!!! Again, a good practice for what we hope are bigger gigs in the near future (next, The Bull and Fairhouse and straight after that The New Roscoe).
Many thanks to Mandy Myatt for her support and for taking videos. Many thanks too to Angie for her particular brand of happy heckling - keeps everyone on their toes and brings the best out of Paul.
Below are the links to the videos taken my Mandy. Remember, they are taken by a small camcorder and it is amazing that it copes at all with the wall of sound it had to capture:
