Will you do the Fandango?

The SQUINS!

We had fun on Tuesday night, thanks for the people that came down and the bands that played.  We were really taken by the Modern Superstitions.   They were pretty much the most enjoyable and exciting band I've seen in AGES!  I felt a bit sorry for them having travelled all the way round the world from Canada and have to play first on.  They had some great songs, fantastic dynamics and just played them in a way makes me want to dance like a grandad at an Indian wedding. Also I have to say the bassist is probably one of the friendliest approachable people I've met for a while (and he had really good facial hair)

Modern Superstitions - so good that Steve would have slept with every single one of them... especially the bassist

  The night also had the punk  'Bear vs Manero' and the scenester rock of the 'Outside Room'

Outside Room - "you shop in IKEA not Habitat, when will you realise you're not all that?" Pete Doherty would have been proud of you boys

           

We’re playing Club Fandango!!!!

Yay!  When I was younger (... and not in a band), I used to to fantasize about being the next up-and-coming big thing playing the famous Club Fandango.  Now other teenagers used to fantasise about other things, but not me! Well we actually did get to play Club Fandango for the first time a few years ago supporting 'You Say Party We Say Die'. It was most memorable for a sound engineer who looked like an old strict headmistress bossing around  'You Say Party' and ordering them around the stage like a group of delinquent pupils.  I found this particularly amusing considering what 'You Say Party's imagery:

That is not the behaviour we expect from this establishment!

Suffice to say I'm not sure that 'You Say Party' ever really became the next big thing. Well, we are playing the famous night on Tuesday at the Buffalo Bar in Islington.  I'm still excited, and I am rekindling my teenage fantasies (No not that one!)
