Home from Forfey.
Yesterday we arrived home after the wonderful Forfey Festival, feel-good event of the year. This gig was particularly special for us for a number of reasons:
Firstly, it was almost exactly 2 years ago (literally off by a few hours) that we played for the first time as a full band. It’s been interesting to compare the two sets, the size and reaction of the audience, and the mentality in which we approached the stage.
Secondly, and made all the more significant by the previous point, this was the last official gig we played with Steve Mitchell (a.k.a Smitch), our terrible joker ever working bass slapper. We loved his lead-balloon antics and he shall be truly missed.
Lastly (but not least-ly) two days before the festival we released Rose Before Bloom. The reaction (so far) has been so encouraging. A big thank-you to everyone who has listened to and bought the single. Also, after our set a good number of people approached us with compliments that we really were not expecting. A HUGE thank-you to these people, including AU who included us in their write up of the festival as one of the hayshed ‘standouts’!
