UK Tour Log #2

Posted by kyle james on Friday, January 18, 2008

England just gets more and more interesting...

We had our first bit of tourist action the other day on the way back from Manchester. We stopped at the legendary Abby Road. turns out its the most dangerous intersection in all of london. I figured it'd be closed off or something, but as we attempted about five crossings, narrowly missing cars the whole while...we finally settled on one picture with an ambulance in it. Not quite the Beatles but it'll have to do.

Manchester was great, Will's mate's, all of whom were named Alex showed us a great time and we finally had our first taste of a proper Kebab. Delicious. My good friend Kyle came down for the show from Hull, and it was good to toss back a few pints with a familiar face in a unfamiliar place.

Last night was our big London debut, which went off wonderfully(for the most part). Great turnout, lots of sales, got pissed in a swank club after the show. One tiny hitch in the night though...seems our young Mr. Knox has come down with the dreaded stomach flu, about an hour before showtime too. True to his professional form though we went ahead as planned, though he did sprint off the stage about as fast as an olympic sprinter. Apparently there's an epidemic of this bug flying around London, supposedly half the populous is going to catch it(or some crazy amount). Anyway, like i've always said, its not a real show if something doesn't go wrong. But we made it through, the people were happy and life goes on. Will is feeling much better though the rest of the band have been nervously looking at one another wondering who's going to catch it next. Luckily we have the ever optimistic Mrs. Knox who just this minute assured me that no one is getting ill!

Tonight we cancelled our show for Will to recover and watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Which Mr. Knox insisted on chatting about what rubbish it was the whole way through. If you didn't think that movie could get any better, try watching it with a proper english father with a few drinks in him trying to give his son life advice to the theme of "Twist and Shout". Classic.

Well, tomorrow its off to Cambridge for what promises to be a great show, and our pent-ultimate one as well.

Jeni's currently giggling at Mr. Knox's antics and Mrs. Knox has requested I pop down to the shop for some dishwasher tablets, so I best be off!

cheers,

kyle james
