The big move..

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

Just come back from playing a party near Plymouth. It rained. Lots… and we were playing in a marquee. The main casualty was my powered mixer… which now is no longer powered. Ah well! It was good fun and there was a nice bonfire to keep us warm.

I’m writing this from the sea of boxes that is the front room of my flat. Tomorrow I move to Manchester. It’ll be strange to be leaving Totnes and the West Country for good. But we’re already booking dates down here for when I’m back in a couple of weeks… so I have a feeling it will be a nomadic existance, flicking between gigs in Manchester, Exeter, and Plymouth. And maybe some places in between!

North Bridge

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

Really really enjoyed playing at the North Bridge Inn tonight. For anyone who doesn’t know, it’s a little gem of a pub in Exeter, hidden away across the old Iron bridge (website here). It’s so refreshing to have a place which likes original artists. Definitely worth a visit next time you’re in Exeter.

Went straight from Exeter to Somerset, in a car crammed full of stuff. On Sunday, I’m leaving Totnes for good and heading to Manchester. Kindof sad… but exciting to be moving to a big city, with many places to play.

I’m going to miss Totnes and Exeter though. Will be heading back there before too long (next gig, 31st August) to get my fix!
