excelsior in memorium

not the clearest image, i know, but when the sound guy is impressed enough to take a photo, then i think that's a reasonable indication that you're going ok. thanks to brett for the image.

i really enjoyed the show - it was great to have another bunch of completely different people to play in front of and for them to respond so positively. i was actually quite surprised after we played at the number of people who spoke to me because they'd specifically come to see us, which was rather satisfying.

for the record, our set list ended up as:

one and one
send away
for the manifesto dub
blending the edges
this is the new thing
smells like rain
nothing ventured

the excelsior was very happy with the turnout etc, and have offered us thursday august 7 to organise another gig. we need to decide whether to take it or not, though my feeling at the moment is to take everything that's offered, especially if it's reputable like the excelsior is. it would probably mean just a 3some on stage though, as neither steve nor blake will be elligible. there would be artists as well, of course.

also, i've looked up the mum page and noticed they've listed our show on the 22nd of august. it's somewhat bizarre - the two acts they've put us on with are the e.l.f., who is playing with us at dirty shirlows next week, and the medicated - the electro-goths who got shafted at paddy maguires with us on good friday. bizarre in the sense that of all the acts they could have put us with, they've chosen ones that we've already crossed paths with.
