We’ve spent the Bank Holiday weekend recovering from our exploits on our recent tour with Dog is Dead. We had a fantastic stint with them and would like to thank them for having us. Thanks also go to Alice for her splendid tour management, parents and friends who loaned us beds and food and Demitirius at Coventry Kasbah for his Greek feast and accompanying crepes which were the best thing Jon’s ever eaten. That sentence was too long.
Here’s what it looked like…
For the unacquainted, that there is Dog is Dead.
I have worked Apple’s highly advanced Preview programme to the fullest to visually illustrate our epic journey.
Here we intimidate Dog is Dead with our footballing prowess. Ian can do headers.
Ralph found this in a beer garden. Can you tell he’s a fan?
Jon takes geek chic to its logical conclusion.
Ralph and Rob trade stories of whiskey, wine and wild women.
Ben’s Bar, complete with its landlord modelling the world’s smallest can of Coke.
The people of Wales smash those stereotypes in Cardiff.
Ralph was given a face-making kit by some of our excellent Welsh fans. He can now make a face in ANY place he likes!
The new genre of Mobilecore is spawned by pure chance when Ian accidentally accompanies Ben’s phone call.
If you fill in the gaps between crowd, eat, palm and hand you’ll have some idea of how good Dog is Dead were.
Ironing out the flaws in my pedal setup.
The concept of mimicry was lost on the Rock City crowd.
Amid a sea of green, the front three stand and deliver.
Ben outdoes Ian’s standing-on-the-speakers manoeuvre by pulling off the first ever TKAK stage dive and crowd surf. Stunning.
The traditional end of tour scrum minus me (I was on a train to London at this point…)
Next up for us is the Great Escape Festival in Brighton in two weekends time. We’ll be playing at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar on Friday 17th and then at the Dome with Bastille the next day. If you’re lucky enough to have a ticket (they’re both sold out) then we’ll see you there!
