JULY we hit the road after a little breakfast to head to Swansea, me and Julia headed headed out shopping and found a couple of small sex shops so had time to grab some new stage gear 😃
A few days to recover and then back to the Brudenell in Leeds to watch one of my old favourite bands The Dickies play and this time I didn't have to get up on stage and kill a song for them as Leonard was back and well, a great night too as it was their 40th anniversary tour, here's an obligatory snap with Stan.
Back to the world of Syteria the following week with a nice long rehearsal followed by playing the Rock N Blues Festival. One day I am so going to go to the right gig with the wrong band or the wrong gig with the right band or some thing like that, I'm confusing myself here... 2 different bands, rock n blues, rock n bike and both in Derbyshire wt?
Loved that weekend, look forward to doing more double duty gigs in the future 😉caught up with a few old friends in the other bands too.
A few days to catch up on all things social media and then down to London for our 2nd gig at the Lounge in Archway, as this time we were headlining 'The Lounge Fest'. Caught up with some old friends there including Malcolm Dome and Tony Wilson, great to see them enjoying themselves, Malcolm throwing some shapes at the after show, strictly next yr I think😉.

Well that's it for July and August. September almost half way already and our good friend Craig Renwick celebrates his 50th Birthday at our 1st headlining gig in Leeds on the 1st and he informs us it's his 666th gig ever...spooky
