    Well at least it's not red :P

    My hair's too long and was rather manky so I wore a cap, this really old scruffy one. I'm not wearing one for the gig mind :P

    No problem with wearing a hat - it's just lame to wear it with the peak pointing backwards.

    Good lock with the gig. Give 'em some feedback

    Dammit? Did you really want to see Rik that badly?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Well we were offered 5 but turned it down, but then the organiser realised he had made more and gave us 10 and when we tried to turn it down he refused! I'm not sure if we'll make anything from our next gig but I don't mind, according to the organiser people were really impressed, probably because we were the only non-punk or cover or punk-metal band there, I can't describe our sound really, maybe like early Radiohead but we go off at a totally different angle I think. The 1st song we played is like the Bends but that's it really. I've just written a bit of a groovy song which I think we'll just turn into an instrumental, maybe not, but it grooves and it's got a tricky time signature Sorta along the lines of a dance beat and rythem. It doesn't fit with any of our current stuff so it will either be on our 2nd album or on it's own EP...maybe both
