The Black Dog @ Glade Festival 21/07/07 + Gig Report

GladeAnother great festival, we’ll be playing with Derrick May, Jim Masters and Vince Watson on the Vapour Stage.

Gig Report

It was never going to be easy!!! After the floods in Sheffield 3 weeks earlier we knew better than to set off on Friday, we figured we’d give it 24hrs before making a call, there would be less chaos for sure or that’s what we hoped.

It only took us 4hrs to get to Glade from Sheffield on Saturday afternoon but you could see why the day before had been mental. The water levels were dangerously close on several parts of the M40 and M4. Still, a quick stop off for some pies and we’d be safe (wouldn’t we?). After pulling into the car park and getting our passes sorted it absolutely binned it down with rain from 45 minutes solid, welcome to Glade! Earlier in the day we’d been all cover Sheffield looking for welly’s and scored no luck so this was going to be messy, very messy.

The Black Dog @ Monegros Festival 07/07/07 Gig Report

We where really looking forward to this one, 45,000 ravers in the desert at one of the best-organised festivals in Europe. Bring it in on Monegros. We’d heard nothing but good reports and a chance to spend another weekend in Spain, you hardly need to ask.

Much better journey over this time, only 30 minutes worth of delays, well done Jet2, big tick. Once we’d landed we where whisked off to the hotel for a quick shower and a couple of beers, always nice to have a chill out and it’s a bit of a ritual. Bumped into the UR crew in the lobby and got to say hello to Mad Mike and Lou from Scan 7, proper chuffed at this point. The hotel Candes was pretty much on the edge of Lleida so we only had a choice of two garages to get some supplies from before fine tuning the set and setting off for the festival.

BCN Nitsa Gig Report

Our love for BCN is well documented, so the chance to play at Nitsa was a bit of a no-brainer. really. For me [Martin] there’s no finer city, it has everything you need plus I love the food and attitude of the Catalan people – never mind the art and architecture. It was (and still is) fooking raining in Sheffield when we hit the M1 for the airport, it’s been raining here for like a whole month. Leeds/Bradford Airport is nothing to shout about and isn’t on of my favourites, finding the thing without a TomTom would be a nightmare all by itself. Checking in was pretty quick but the shocker was coming, “your flight is running 3 hours late” – brilliant!!! So, 3hrs later we board the plane only to find we have 1 extra person on board!!! Everyone has to get off the plane and start all over again, so 5hrs later we finally set off for BCN. TFFT
