"Supported" The Blockheads!

Recommended Posts

OK - maybe a BIT of an exaggeration ;) There was also another band between us and the gods, but we were first on, opening the festival on the main stage, using The Blockheads' sound system and with exclusive use of The Blockheads' sound guys (who were brilliant) - so, for an old-gits-ropey-at-times-band, that's pretty damned close :lol:

We were on that early, I reckon we were the 'need someone on stage to see if the sound works OK and the emergency escape provisions are up to scratch' band, but hey, still does it for me! :)

I'll try and post some shots. The sound was great and ohhhhh what a luxury to have someone else worrying about the set up for a change (I'm usually the Head of Knobs ... or was it Nobs) in our band.

And The Blockheads - they were brilliant. And Norman Watt-Roy....there were some stupendous bass sounds coming from his fingers....

You must have got a souvenir - autograph/plectrum/selfie???

Something you'll be able to tell the Grandkids but they probably won't care...

That's just too cool!

the closest I can get is band being booked support for 'From The Jam' at a festival, then having the thing cancelled at the 11th hour :(
