DAY 3. Evening all! As I am sat in Marc’s flat in Cologne drinking my beer, I thought it would be a good moment to spill some thoughts on the day.
The photo was taken in a very rare Indian restaurant next to the Luxor in Cologne. There was talk of Indian food a few days ago amongst the co-headliners, but as to not build up mine and Rob’s hopes, I swiftly dismissed the rumours. In England we are lucky in the fact that establishments serving eastern cuisine are ten to the dozen but it’s not really the case in Germany. After an epic feed, FOR FREE, we had to play a gig on the fullest of stomachs with only half an hour left for them to settle; a challenge that we so often find ourselves facing. Cue the stage burps…. Andy!
The gig was really great tonight- everything from the stage sound to the bag of mini snickers in the dressing room. We had seen Idlewild in this venue a few years ago and always said that we’d love to play it one day. I feel as though we played well and gave a great account of ourselves. It feels good to do that. It makes such a difference to feel really comfortable and relaxed in your surroundings.
Paris tomorrow. It’s only about 5 or 6 hours away…. BRING IT!
If ever you don’t want to get a tune out of your head, this is the one. I was singing this for hours today.
