Argh, they played a pub called the royal oak in halifax on Chickenpieday night.
The pubs website said, "almost sold out" followed by "90 tickets on the door" hmmm
It held jaguar more than 150 people.
Ivan Campo was the support band too, yey!
jsut unbelieveable. Live they are so stunning its amazing.
Danny Ad, said hello to me, he's the roadie type guy, I don't think he recognised me, i think he was being polite.
There were only about 10 people there who had seen them before, all singing our hearts out.
I recognised one guy, he's been to most of the gigs, so i got chatting, turns out he is the manager, and a top bloke too.
laytuh in the gig, he aksed me "do you have tickets for the academy 2 gig?" my response was along the lines of well of course! "oh okay, jaguar problem"
Rik and I took this to mean he was offering tickets/guest list.
It was a riot by the end, and with thier being jaguar stage, as people surge forward during fainale Acrylic, Liam got twated in the face by his own mike stand, slowly stumbled sideways, hitting conan and knocking him over his own amp.
Me and another guy caught Liam, but conan was left to pick himself up, they attempted to carry on, but after 30 seconds or so liams guitar was out of tune so they stopped. Conan lent on my shoulder and had a chat.
By this stage, i was litteraly stood on Conans toes. I was further forward then liam, the crowd, despite Dannys attempts, had swamped the band.
The manager and the band were cleary amazed by the crowd, there was a nice bit where i was looking over at Cuppello, one of those testicle meeting moments, i was nodding my head and grinning, and he grinned back. as if to say, "wow, squirrel this is fucking huge"
they finished at 0013hrs, our train was at 0019hrs so we had to sprint to the station, I had a quick word with the manager, a see you soon. and we were off.
jsut as Liam were saying somefink about "should i play one more?"
You heard it here first.
Actually according to thier 6music interview, Rijk and I were at their first ever gig, at the roadhouse, where his guitarstrap kept breaking.
not even Conan was at that gig, they had a guitarist from the Slowdown Family originally.
I get giddy when i think of them, this is gonna be so huge, and i was litteraly there from the start. ace.
Oh and a few pictures...
