We are the young adults of the night we are the young adults. We are the young adults of the night we are the young adults.

Just in case you haven’t been paying attention to our Facebook and Twitter feed for the past few days let me fill you in. We will be playing with The Blackout later next Month. That’s May the 20th to be exact, at a little place called 53 Degrees.

I for one am very excited about this. I have seen the Blackout on no less than Three occasions, once when they supported lostprophets on the Start Something tour, again when they toured the ‘We Are The Dynamite’ album, and then once more when they toured they toured the ‘Best in Town’ album last year.  I know some of the other guys saw them at download in 2009 as well. Hopefully this time I will get to watch them from the side of the stage rather than in front.

We currently have tickets on sale for 12.50 and it’s very first come first served.

Of course in my more fanciful moments…

Wait I know what you’re thinking, “you! Have a fanciful moment, don’t be daft, I have read these blogs before and they are nothing if not down to earth well balanced considerations of a genuine fellow not taken towards flights of fancy, you Mr Maclastname, you my good man have never had a fanciful thought come to the fore of your overlarge curly haired head in your life.”

And reader you would of course be correct. These Blogs are never sarcastic, silly or tongue in cheek.  But damn it if my serious tendencies haven’t been eroded at the prospect of playing with one of my favourite bands!

So in my more fanciful moments this is the start of a glorious career that would make the people I went to High School with jealous forever. Obviously the Blackout are going to love us SO MUCH, that they decide to take us on their next tour. Off the back of which we eventually become successful multi millionaires and invest the money in a spaceship plated with gold that allows us to be the first band to go on a Interstellar tour to Alpha Centuri .

Or maybe it will just be damn good night.  I hope it is.

What night was that, on it was may the 20th at 53 Degrees in Preston. With the Blackout….. you should come.

Did I mention who is was with?

Yeah the Blackout.

I like them.

December 30th 2010

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

This year we have played a bazillion shows. We’ve driven a long way and drunk more energy drinks that I care to remember, we’ve met a ton of new people, and we’ve had a damn fine time doing the damn thing. We’ve taken some very serious knocks that you’ll probably never hear about, but we’ve kept going.

Our E.P has been around for a while now. And we got an amazing review in rock sound as well as a ton of other places (and a fairly lack lustre one from punktastic) some people have actually bought it, which surprises me every day. But I can sincerely say thank you to everyone who has paid his or her actual own genuine money to own it. 

Thank you to the licence fee payers, who, because of the unique way in which the BBC is funded, have given us the opportunity to appear on what I think is (and I’m rambling here) one of the greatest media organisations on the planet. Second only to the Guardian in my very humble and very left wing opinion. Thank you to Sean Mcginty for being kind enough to have us on not once, but twice after I was too ill to perform on the first show

Thank you to the lovely people at Lava TV for putting our music video on the actual genuine television. One of the coolest things that happened this whole year was when our video came on at 6 in the morning when we we’re still up partying after a show form the night before.

Thank you to the good people at Dean and D Drum for letting us open the Dean DOA event this year. And thank you to the very patient bouncers who didn’t kick our asses when we had rather a lot to drink after we had played. 

Thank you to the wonderful people at the Agency Group and 53 degrees for letting us play with The Blackout that was a seriously fantastic night for me personally. and thank you to the Angel Of Metal for somehow making it all happen.

Thank you to Better Left Alone for playing, what was for my money, the coolest gig of the whole year, at a little place in Penwortham. Despite what you might have heard, we don’t hate one another, or at the very least, we don’t hate them. you’ll have to ask them about us for yourself.

Thank you to everyone who helped us put together, or appears in, our new music video (you know who you are) it looks brilliant, and it will be doing the rounds very soon.

Thank you to every single person who came to see us at a show. without you we couldn’t do this

Thank you to every band, who ever showed up on time for a gig, because we do, and so should you.

Much love to…
