We were back on the road for another round of hardcore show. The only place to start any tour is a Sainsbury's petrol station.
After we had spent 45 minutes filling up the van we got in and Graham broke out the Crumpton Oaks! It was ruff.
Since the last few shows Grahams morgalon had got slightly better and was weeping a lot less apparently.
We drove for a bit then stopped at the services.
We drove for a bit more then stopped at another services.
Finally we arrived at the venue. They had a novel way to get to the balcony area, we found out later there were stairs around the corner.
By now I was well hungry and crisps and fruit were just not going to cut it.
So me and DJ Killer Tomato went for a romantic curry.
I got a call to go and sound check coz we were so late and the doors were going to open soon I had to go back to the venue leaving Tom to pick up the curry.
Maggot and Eggsy really enjoyed the sound check.
Tom brought back the curry and it was lush, we didn't bother to get rice.
Some of the boys went to a ruff pub up the road, the sort of place someone gets killed outside on Christmas eve.
They were doing violence and karaoke inside and Adam was right at home.
We all went back to the venue and got serious.
Then we were ready to get on and do the show.
Graham was still being serious, so serious he had two cans of cider.
The place was rocking and Maggot was even taller than usual.
The crowd were having a good time.
And that's all that matters.
There were some good looks out there too.
Maggot was having a great time and proper felt the love.
It was a good show!
After the show Maggot went back to being serious.
We met some of the party people on the street after the show and I went to the hotel to sort out the accommodation ahead of the boys as the rooms had been all wrong with single beds etc.
After I spent 20 minutes explaining about the problems with the rooms and being assured they were all correct the boys turned up and we found out the rooms all had single beds in them and we had to make war beds on the floor.
Most of the boys went back onto the bus and partied till the small hours
It was a great gig at Barrow and I hope we can go back, thanks for having us!
