Blimey, these last few days have all been go on the Magic Ship. Website up, album received. Now Col tells us we've had a load of branded T-shirts delivered. Last night was the final practice before Friday's gig at Ye White Hart. It took us a run through to warm up and a second time round the songs to play them well. It'll be something else to play in a big room. In fact something else to play outside the four walls of the rehearsal room.
I like to keep things simple, but at the moment there are so many things happening it is far from simple. Now I see why bands have tour managers and promo teams and web designers and marketing departments and hair stylists and m&m filterers! It means they can go on stage and play and wake up the next day in the next town and play again and keep doing that until they are told to go and speak to the people at Horse and Hound magazine. Then go on Top of the Pops. Then go on stage again. Like being at school or in the army I suppose, but with more fans.
