we have now been played on national radio! Pete Bailey, from Primordial Radio has played our song 'Old Nick's Gaze' several times on his show's slot 'Newbies at Noon'. We forgot to add that after seeing our performance at Westpoint Arena, we were then booked for a last minute gig on Halloween at The Ship in Crediton. We have decided after our New Year's Eve gig at The Kings Arms in Crediton, that we will be taking a break from gigging at the beginning of the year to concentrate on writing a new album which we hopefully plan to record at some point in 2018, where we plan to do a much larger promotional campaign than we did for Broken Blues. Watch this space for more news.
After we decided not to do too much more this year to give Phil's back a rest, we've been booked for two more gigs, we said 'yes' as we're excited to do both. After a successful time at the Kings Arms in Crediton, we've been asked to play there for New years Eve, it will be tickets from the bar which will include a midnight buffet, we think it will be £5 a ticket, but you'll have to check with the pub. The other we're waiting to be announced, so can't say too much, so check the gig list on your right, when it's announced, we'll add it there, all we'll say is that it's in Cirencester and it's on the 18th of November. We'll be hunting for 2018 gigs soon.
