The Black Dog – You Are Strange Mix 1

tbd at fabricSometimes you just need something to clear your head – a state of neither neither if you will. This mix was created to be used in our car when traveling to gigs and to the studio for the sole purpose of clearing our heads of all the jingles/sayings/other peoples music/soundbytes/shite that creeps in, the viruses that nag and chip away like a small child asking “are we nearly there yet?”.

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.
