A lot of people were saying we shouldn't have been first on the bill, but we quite like being on first at this type of show. You can get straight on and off without having to worry about things too much.
One thing I don't like about pub gigs, however, is that I don't have a clue where to look. At a proper gig type show you can look out and the whole audience is looking your way, whereas with a pub gig people are generally wandering around doing their own thing. I find it quite hard to be confident on stage when you're pretty sure more people are watching the Chelsea game.
One humorous moment though – I thought our song 'Michael' had received its most rapturous reception ever, only to realise that Chelsea had scored a goal a few seconds into the intro. Very embarrassing.
Del Nil's singer was a friendly chap and his band were tight as hell, although some of the guitar solos were a bit excessive for my personal taste. I like to impose a strict 16-bar limit on solos, whereas Del Nil went more for 16 minutes! As I said though, nice guys.
Saturdays and Sundays were, well, next. Apparently last time they were here they played first to 3 people, so this time Rossco put them on in the middle of the bill. By this logic I suppose you could argue that Grimthorpe Town should be in the FA Cup Final against Man U because last year they didn't get very far, but as we've established, the running order at these shows really doesn't matter that much.
De Squeron were next, but we were having Subway instead, sorry. It was very nice though, Toasted Club with Barbecue Sauce. Although they had barricaded of half of Subway with an impenetrable wall of chairs and bins, so we couldn't sit down or go to the toilet. (note to self – nobody cares about this tedious bollocks, shut up).
I wouldn't dare say a bad word about The Way because I'm terrified of them and their fans. So I guess that's the end of this entry.
One final point of note, my girlfriend bought me the latest Girls Aloud album, which I intend to listen to on the way from work, where I'm currently writing this, DON'T TELL THE BOSS x
