Back to school

Venue:  Winchcombe School

Present: Dom, Eg, Fea, Smash

Ran through the Booster8 album without stopping.

Amazing how much more focussed one is when one has spent the last year recording, editing and mixing the songs.  It's also a bit baffling as to why we still can't play them faultlessly after such intense year-long scrutiny.

Ran through some new songs too.  Eg unwittingly sat under a poster depicting a character called 'Edgar'.  Oh how we laughed (*straight face*).  And promised that we would take a picture of the moment.

We didn't.

In the pub afterwards we drank a toast to Tom.

There's more to life than laughter lines and loopy
