Yet Another Sonar 08 Clip

Includes rare shot of tBd smiling 🙂

Cardiff and Glastonbury + A Couple Of Press Interviews

Seems things have picked up at bit since Sonar, two interviews in one day. Here’s the one in our local paper, some of the names and facts are a bit blurred but it’s the first time a local paper has contacted us in 5yrs, linkage here?.

We’re just setting off for Cardiff as I type, always a good place to play and the local Holodeck crew?always get our full support, here’s the interview we did for the Metro. We should have the Sonar report sorted for when we get back but lets just say we smashed it.

See you down the front.

The Black Dog Sonar 08 Report

Asking us if tBd want to go to Barcelona for 5 days and play Sonar and La Terrazza can only b guaranteed?one answer! Barcelona has to be one of our favourite cities and it doesn’t take much at all to get us over there. After a short delay at Leeds airport and a delay waiting for a lift at BCN airport we landed at our hotel to drop the bags off before head straight out to the Soma party.?

La Terrazza is in the middle of?Poble Espanyol Ayda complex, it feels like you’re in the wrong place to start with as the location is so beautiful and there’s no one around at all. You can’t hear a single beat being played, it’s only when you get inside the club that you can hear the music (more on this later). Dave Soma gave us 25 beer and water (yeah right) tokens and we sat back and listened to Silicone Soul warming the crowd up nicely. Next up was Mark Henning and then us for a short slot before chilling out and having a few too many beers, the rest is just a blur…Well apart from having to keep the volume level below 92db, what a freaking nightmare, people constantly leaning over you and messing with the mixer, we did manage to bottom the whole system out twice tho 🙂
