It seems like ages since we last visited the Barrel and its always a venue that we enjoy going back to. Just before we launched into Into the Valley, Hoover shared the tale of our first gig 3 years ago (a support slot for Crush UK, at the time we were called Them Pesky Kids) which took place at the Barrel. We'd played 9 songs - our entire repertoire and were requested Into the Valley. Don't know why it took us so long, but we got there in the end!
Hotpoint jumped around like a mad thing, machine gunned the audience with his bass and adopted the Guitar God pose of foot on monitor. He'll fit in fine!
Thanks to Simon and Alison, new managers at the Barrel, for keeping live music and for inviting us back. We had a ball and look forward to our return in May
