A week’s a long time in popotics…
Jesus its been busy of late! And with two releases (hard work releases at that – but they do look so lovely), the Alcopop Hometown Heroes tour, an Old Blue Last showcase, the BSM 5-a-side tournament AND the NBA Jam Off at Pure Groove tomorrow… I’m surprised I’m still standing. But standing I am – and thanks so much for everyone’s support of late buying releases, sending nice emails and tweets and coming to shows et al.
It’s so nice that people are digging what we’re doing – you simply own!
This is basically just a quick one to report a few of the shenanigans that took place over the weekend (leaving out, of course, the bit where I fell asleep on a Northampton pavement) but elucidating on an incredible team performance in the 5 a side football (we beat Front Magazine 7-0, yup) and incredible Hometown Heroes performances.
It was delicious having almost the whole roster hang out in an obscure beer garden in Northampton, and amongst George Elephant’s role as Alcopop manager (including full, sweltering suit in the hot, hot sun), Luka Coach’s frankly hilarious impression of John Coach’s footballing abilities, and the insistence of a garage man to sell My First Tooth condoms when all they really wanted was Amber Leaf (I guess they are a hot band) – much fun was had. “I might go and have a posh wank” was G-Unit’s measured take on the situation…
The bands meanwhile were awesome, a proper stage invasion at the end of the Stagecoach Dorking set saw various Maldinites, Gammers, Owen and I finishing the set as the Coach back up band, and street/pub garden/outside toilet karaoke sessions of classic Saves The Day songs became the norm. We’ll probably be doing it again soon enough; maybe hitting up some proper party cities this time (no offence Dorking).
Anyway – here’s a photo that’s pretty rad… Albeit Jo MFT has a pint for a head, and Luka Coach is probably smoking. See you soon y’all:
