Last gig. Might tidy these blog posts up at some point with some more description at some point, got delusions of doing a zine about the entire tour though. Going to go get some sleep now though.
Last day, two shows. Garage in Tadley, Cowley in Brighton. Google is scaring me by showing me stuff I posted 10 minutes ago in the search results when I try to check things. I need sleep.
Nottingham, crashed at Steve's odd but cool ex-homeless shelter place. Record shopping, shaves, etc in town. I'm getting tired now and can't be bothered with detail. Then drive down to London for Bryony's Big Takeover event at Arch 897 in London with loads of good bands and a good vibe. Bar idiocy with cymbal stands.
Glasgow to Nottingham, longest drive of the week. What's the sensible plan? Break it in two. What's the not so sensible plan? Get the distances wrong when you look across a valley and go "That'll only take 5 minutes to walk over to..."
Walking over to the Sycamore Gap in Hadrian's Wall though, as used in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves as part of Sherwood.
Had to leave Conor's early because the square was being used for re-shoots of Married Single Other for ITV. Bizarre.Headed from Leeds up to Brimham Rocks (you know the score by now: free, unusual, interesting), and then stopped at Bamburgh Castle on Welli's recommendation as well. Bit odd driving past Torness Nuclear Power Station and realising there's a caravanning and camping site opposite. Up the east coast, and over to Glasgow for the gig at the 13th Note. Which was a good gig and a good venue, but where I completely neglected to do anything other than drink soft drinks and wander around outside instead of getting my camera out.
