Silver Rocket and Oxford [band] 21st August 2006
[band] played our first show in over a month yesterday in Oxford. I'm pretty sure the gig went well, although it's difficult to tell as we're the sort of band which will always divide opinion. What was unusual was that during the bands (particularly the first) half the audience took it upon themselves to sit cross-legged on the floor in front of the stage, causing a queue for attendees to back-up down the stairs and crane their necks for a view. We played with Storoway and Foxes. The former I was unable to watch because of the aforementioned bodies on the floor, but the latter ably played the sort of ramshackle jaunty, quirky pop that is really starting to bore me.
Technophiles will be keen to note than in a bid to sharpen-up our live sound, Stacey has been trying one of my Hagstrom IIIs, and I've switched to the Tele until my Electrical Guitar Co beast arrives.
