The Lymelight Approach
Well, we weren’t sure it would happen, but at the Eleventh Hour it did. I of course mean this year’s Lymelight Festival, held in the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme’s town centre. Last year we held court on the main stage on the Saturday afternoon, and this year we’ll be making noise on Sunday at 5:10pm.
As part of the panic of being a last-minute addition to the bill, Duncan & I needed to make it a full band set. Playing the Underground acoustically was cool, but it wouldn’t do, not for this. We got the call with a fortnight to spare, and Matt, Jack & SBT weren’t available for proceedings, so Duncan set about a mad-busy few hours of making calls of his own & and set us up with some sweet friends of mine - Dan Bailey and Ash Simpson, from King Kula.
Two rehearsals in, and things are going nicely. We can’t wait for you to hear us when we take the stage... If the anticipation is too much to bear, you can get a quick fix if you see John on the acoustic stage on Saturday, 3:40pm.
