Good morning, and welcome to a beautiful fresh morning here in sunny Bristol!
Now – that’s got the ghastly enthusiasm out the way, can I go back to bed now?
Oh well, here we go then.
After a couple of weeks off, with band members enjoying exotic holidays in such desirable destinations as Rome, and – er – Swanage – we were back in rock’n’roll action playing a wedding over in the verdant valleys up past Merthyr Tydfil in glorious South Wales.
After having set up, soundchecked, and performed that other vital musician task – making friends with the catering staff – we sat back and drank free beer and ate free food until it was time to start.
