Newsletter – ‘2014 – What A Year! Thank You, You Top Lot!’‏


Morning you lovely lot!

Well! You get good years and bad years. 2014 has been quite exceptional for us!

Started it off with Wilko Johnson at the Tun Wells Forum, from that we met our manager Lisa and she got us the gig of a lifetime playing at Shepherds Bush Empire playing with Wilko and Roger Daltrey! We had some great supports with Mark Morriss, Norman Watt-Roy and Tom Williams and The Boat, all of which have looked after us for quite some time – we salute you.

Local and Live was fantastic this year! Our debut album ‘Sell Everything You Own’ got a re-release and now sounds the way it should! Here it is to listen to on YouTube, hope you enjoy it!

We’ve played a lot of places that we’ve never played before and did a two night stand with The Blockheads at the Jazz Cafe!

And to top it off, we supported The Who on 4 dates of their UK tour! The band who have shaped this band so much! The support from these shows was incredible and we are pleased to spread the word to so many people…still cant believe it!

2014 really has been a top year for us! Most of all though, we thank you lot who have stuck with us over the last 4 years and to all the people who’ve got on board with the band by buying a ticket, CD, download, signed up to the newsletter, given us a gig and spreaded the word. Without you lot, it doesn’t happen!

It’s going to be a hard one to beat, but we’ll keep going for it!

Have a top 2015 everyone! We leave you with a highlight. Three songs from our gig with The Who at Leeds!!!
