The Basement (York) afterthoughts

If the river Ouse had been just a few inches higher, last night’s gig at The Basement in York might not have gone ahead. The stage was being dismantled as we departed at the night’s end, in preparation for the high water point in the early hours of this morning.

There was hardly a moment’s breath in the evening’s entertainment, with fine performances before us from Caitlin Burchett, The Woven Project and Broken Ground. Interestingly, 3 of the 4 acts started their set with a cover; we started with our version of Neil McSweeney‘s ‘London Road’. Despite this being our first gig for yonks we didn’t feel too rusty, and thought we played quite well.  We certainly enjoyed it.  If you were there, did you have a good night?  Thanks a million for all those of you who were there, we hope to be back in York later in the year.
