We’ll be playing in the Crane Lane in Cork City on the 9th July, it’ll be a late show as its scheduled for after the Imelda May gig. Hopefully we’ll see some of you heads there.
We got an exciting phone call this morning about some impending business. We can’t tell just what it is right now but all will be revealed if it comes off.
We’re delighted to be supporting The Fall in Belfast next Wednesday as a part of the cathedral arts quarter festival.
We’ll be playing the the marquee in customs house square.
Canadian Long Board firm Landyatchz have been using our music to promote their longboards this year, we’re delighted. check ‘em out.
Last week my (Andy) health took a nasty turn , when I found myself collapsed on my bathroom floor at 4am struggling for breath. I recovered enough to get myself checked out and am now on the mend.
What had happened though is I picked up a flu just as we set off on tour 5 weeks ago and hadn’t managed to shake it, its developed into a full blown chest infection exacerbated by overwork, lack of sleep etc. We came off tour and played more shows here at home in Ireland and I didn’t rest at all until finally, boom, down I go, exhaustion, burnt out.
Im a 6 foot man, 13 stone, I train hard 3 or 4 times a week and am very very fit. I’ve been an amateur racing cyclist for a large part of my life so finding myself genuinely thinking for a moment I may be clocking out gave me something to think about.
The upshot is, we won’t be taking any bookings for a little while until I consider what Im to do about this. We’ll honor the bookings already made but won’t consider any more until I know how Im going to deal with this. I need to gig but I won’t be doing it in this way if it continues to make me sick.
We’re a gigging band, as you may know, we gig a lot and we like it that way but my character dictates that I give everything 100% or nothing at all.
So until we make new arrangements, we’ll play the half dozen gigs we have in the diary and no more.
Andy & Chris
