Wrecktheplacefantastic update…

wtpf-hobThe gig on Friday went really well; about 70 people down there in the end, maybe half of whom watched us. It’s the first show we’ve played where I was happy with my performance (I always play worse live because of nerves; anxiety?! What anxiety?) and where I believed everyone who said we played a good set. My sister and her boyfriend came up from Southampton to see us, which was super cool of them, and plenty of other friendly faces were there too. Probably my favourite remark was being told that we reminded someone of As Friends Rust and Grade. I fucking love As Friends Rust but have never consciously tried to imitate them.

Houston Has A Problem and Another Day Lost also put in storming sets; a privilege and a pleasure to play alongside ’em.

Anyway, aside from the possibility that we’ll have another show on January 30th – a Haiti benefit at the Hare & Hounds – our new plan is to get on with writing some new songs. Watch this space. Or our MySpace.

    Awesome show my dear. Really enjoyed it. Was pretty bizarre watching you play and all of the songs (and drum beats!) coming back to me! Hehe.

    Cheers Fran! Bet it was a bit weird… glad you enjoyed us though :)
