Damnably promoted 6 of the Shonen Knife gigs around the UK on this years ‘Overdrive’ tour and 3 of them Sold Out and the others did really well. We helped do the door, played some along with smallgang and we hung out with Gareth in Bristol and Cardiff, Ally in Glasgow, Sab in Brighton and met some lovely people along the way. We had so much fun, sold some CD’s and some people liked what we did. Shonen Knife really rocked out and the crowds went totally nuts each night. The highlights were the band learning DOGE and Atsuko singing ‘Heatwave’ and drumming and singing ‘I Am A Cat’. Weirdest thing was a video interview in Leicester.
We will play in Leicester on Magic Teapot’s stage for Handmade Festival, which is a multi-venue
affair with some great acts on including our friends Shonen Knife and Echolocation.
Smallgang & Shonen Knife have new albums out so are touring a lot of the UK & we will join them in Leicester, Coventry, Bristol, Cardiff, Brighton and London.
