27 August saw the band play our first festival: Griffstock 2017, near Stroud, Gloucestershire.
2/5 of the band – David, Cat and friends – made it up the day before and were able to check out some legendary bands. West Country anarcho-punk legends A-heads and, in the evening, the searing dub of Dub the Earth and quintessential festival outfit, Radical Dance Faction. Proper rave action – some people were well spun out.
The rest of the band joined us on the Sunday. Despite a bit of tuning issues (I guess guitars, like dogs, don’t being stick in like hot vans) we managed to play our set well enough. Sadly, I’d forgotten to remove my fetching toddler-style sunhat, which left me looking like someone ‘having it large’ in Manchester circa 1990. But, sod it, we’re not a fashion band.
Cheri was on hand again on photography duty. Check these out…
