The Tour The Tour, Day One

Well, we're sat in out Travelodge outside Winchester sipping on Chartreose, so I guess we did indeed GO ON TOUR.

As I said.

BLIND FATH FOR THE FUCKING WIN!

This time last night, as you read, we had no idea how we were going to get to the first gig. So I posted this message on Facebook:

I also left this prayer on Twitter:

When I woke, up, we still had no idea how we were going to get to out show. At one PM, we had wheels. HOT WHEELS. Damien The Drift Car Driver, from Facebook, who brought along a friend, David, who (amongst many other things) just so happens to be an expert at selling merch at gigs.

Miracles happen every day.

BLIND FAITH FOR THE MOTHERFUCKING WIN!

Driving to the first show on one's tour in a flipping AE866 Trueno sprinter is an experience every performing musician should have at least once. The engine sounds like one continuous ragged bass note. You feel like you're doing 200 miles an hour when you're doing 70. BVOOOOOOOOOM! BVWOOOOOOOM!

My lord.

That photo up there's us soundchecking.

This is us playing:

It was a wonderful show. We had so much fun. I lead the audience in a flipping PRAYER. And my Mum came. She's never seen me play before!

Yes, Jack Nimble and I were hype machines. MC Chris was flipping masterful. Lars and Weerd Science were Righteous Priests Of Party. You couldn't have wished for an iller opening night. This is going to be a legendary tour.

Not only did we have an amazing time, not only did we meet loads of ace people, not only was it a flipping wonderful show, but it paid for itself, thanks to the Voltron-like powers of We Four. We sold loads of STUFF!

Here's me and Damian with Crystal and Bobby, who both bought beautiful Living In The Future T-Shirts.

That's David and Jack and Damian by the Magnificent Merch Stall.

...and that's Dave, Jack and me. At the Magnificent Merch Stall.

I am happy, you can tell from the size of my mouth.

Day One Was Great.

THANK YOU INTERNETS FOR MAKING MY DREAMS COME TRUE!

Tomorrow, Oxford.

BLAOW!
