Glasgow – Woodend Club – 17th April 2013
Tonight’s venue – The Woodend in Glasgow – a bowling and badminton club in the Jordanhill area of the city. An interesting venue – the dressing rooms being shared space with the changing rooms for the club….which led to some curious meetings, sights and smells in the run up to the gig….!
As Colin tweeted afterwards:

Manchester – Night and Day Cafe – 18th April 2013
Enroute from Glasgow, we stopped in at BBC Liverpool to record an interview and a couple of tunes for Dave Monks. And from there – onto Manchester and the Night and Day Cafe.
St Helens – The Citadel – 19th April 2013
A great night at the Citadel – as Colin recounts:
after the spring sun in glasgow and hailstones in manchester we’re back in sunshine in liverpool….huh?A near full house and great sound means we happened on stage pretty much as we intend to….audience enjoyed themselves big time (they told me afterwards!)
Great to meet a bunch of old school mates i haven’t seen in 32years in the bar.Sorry for it to be so ‘hi’ and ‘bye’!
Thanks to the staff of the Citadel running such a cool wee place the way they do.
