Check out the final trailer for the tour movie “Work. Rest. Play” coming out next month. We recorded this on the final day in Brighton. We had all been through the races a lot by this point, but it was such a wicked place to be. Andy recorded a little message in the studio a couple of weeks ago, which we added to the start. I hope you like it. The full movie is out in episodic and full form next month, and all parts will be posted here. Hit ‘Follow’ and stay in the loop!

Check out the other trailer on YouTube here, and scroll down to check out all of my written blog entries from the road!

TOUR BLOG #4: Stoke – A Place For Creativity

IMG_0461I’m sitting at the merch stand on my laptop again. This has become my home on the tour. We are at Bad Edit Venue in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. It is such an amazing place. A really creative place. There is a whole bunch of graffiti around. The air smells like wet paint. Flyers are on every table advertising the venue to anyone who may want to use it for music, art, theatre, whatever. Last night was a great real music venue, Bad Edit is just generally a cool place. I’m enjoying chilling on the sofa and waiting for the show to start.

Last night was really good. After a brilliant show, we drove to Nottingham to stay with Faye. I actually got a great nights sleep, albeit for five or so hours. I decided to stay up and revisit one of my favourite movies from my teenage years: Road kill. For those who don’t remember, it’s a generic road thriller about two brothers and a love interest driving across America and being tormented by a crazed trucker. We have spent every night navigating winding, pitch black roads with creepy signs warning death. Logical choice to settle down to then.

After that adrenaline thrill ride was over, I managed to get some sleep, have a lovely full breakfast this morning and gave my face a good clean. Last night was definitely one of those luxury nights. Tonight should be very different. As soon as this show is over, we are emptying the tip jar into the petrol tank and heading straight for Liverpool. We bought some cheap beers from home bargains earlier and we have a full bottle of black Sambucca in the boot.

Time to get wasted on the way, then head out for a Saturday night in Merseyside. None of us have been to Liverpool before and we are all really excited. We hooked it up so we are going out with the guy who Andy is doing a radio interview with tomorrow, and crashing at his tonight. The next two nights in Liverpool should be awesome. I’m still pretty concerned about Wrestlemania tomorrow but oh well.

IMG_0454Now for tonight, we have a few great people on. I’ve loved Burslem so far. There are a lot of cool sculptures, some cool street art and a shit load of pubs and bars. I like it here! But we are all looking forward to finally seeing Liverpool! I’ll be through with another update tomorrow. There is lots to come! We are at The Lomax tomorrow, we are doing media for Sean Music TV in the day, and it’s Wrestlemania at midnight!

Peace! Check out Brains For Breakfast:

TOUR BLOG #3: Derby – The Victoria Inn

IMG_0440

I’m sitting at the merch stand waiting for the show to start in wonderful Derby, at the Victoria Inn. I have to say it’s easily the best of the three we have visited so far, and one of my the best venues I’ve been to in the country for music. They have tonnes of pictures of previous bands who played here. Some pretty famous groups, and a whole lot of punk and hardcore bands which I love. The place has a really good atmosphere.

The room is separate to the rest of the pub and actually looks like a real gig venue. Black floors, walls completely covered in posters and pictures from nights gone by. The stage is awesome. There is actually a backstage area comprised of a few worn out sofas, a couple of broken fridges and a wooden table. There is equipment everywhere. There is graffiti all over the place, from all the people and bands to pass through here. It has such a good vibe for music. I can’t speak highly enough of the place.

IMG_0441I can’t remember if I recapped on the Blind Tiger show yesterday, because things started really late there. But the show went pretty well. Andy fell victim to the predictable irony that often plagues him. He went on second (by this time it was already past 11pm) to a pretty minimal crowd. An hour or so after he finished, the place got much more busy, which is disappointing. However we did a few sales and met a lot of cool people. In the end, we left the venue happy. We had a bit of a nightmare on the motorway that night, and we didn’t even leave the place til 1am, but oh well.

Today is a new day. We are in Derby. We have everything set up perfectly for a good show. I’m even gonna catch a cheeky bit of Friday Night Smackdown on this laptop from the merch desk while the show is going on. Then it’s off to Nottingham to stay with Faye tonight. That should be cool. I’m hoping to get some Call of Duty on the go if possible. But before all that, we are at an awesome venue, there is a stacked lineup and a decent crowd developing in the bar outside. I’ll be sure to let you know how we got on tomorrow. I don’t know when I’ll get the time because we are organising tomorrows show in Stoke, so it’s gonna be one stressful day, but I had better find a bit of time.

I’m out. Keep following for more updates!
