    This weekends album launch gigs gave me two of my favourite ever on-stage sights.. Firstly new lead guitarist Rob writhing on the floor in the most ridiculous and unexpected guitar solo freakout and second watching an 80 year old woman and a girl dressed as a crazy neon fairy doing the most amazing coordinated dance at the front.. I wish bass playing would allow for picture taking!
