Thank You Mancunians

November 1st, 2008

Another fantastic show, this time with the Paul and Storm bonus. Not to mention a little cross cameo business with our famous friend Neil Gaiman, who was doing a reading from his new book about 150 meters away (that’s in metric). Neil was nice enough to let us do a couple of songs at the beginning of his reading, and then when he finished up he came over to our show and read the second verse of Creepy Doll. Almost too creepy really, but an incredible thrill as I am a huge fan. Thank you Neil, and thank you Manchester.

And yes, for some reason I have been unable or unwilling to post this for several days – blogging ends up last on the list of stuff I gotta do when I’m on the road, which is kind of dumb because that’s when all the awesome stuff happens. It is now Saturday, and I have some breathing room in the hotel in Birmingham and am trying to catch up. Stay tuned…

    I found out my name is of Irish origin, if you’re still interested :P

    Thanks for an awesome show, which is the best birthday present I’ve ever got (my boyfriend got me tickets) and thanks very much for playing Ikea, I’d had that stuck in my head all day.

    Every time I think about this gig I smile and then laugh to myself. I am getting some very strange looks on the bus… Thnk you for a night I will remeber for all time… at least through the robot wars anyway!

    Awesome show, had an amazing night. Have to apologise for my drunken/semi medicated state at the end. Pre operation meds and beer dont mix well.

    God damn! You were in my home town 5 days ago and I completely failed to find out about it until now…

    Come back soon, and let me know this time. I should probably fund you in some fashion for your music.

    It was my birthday and wedding anniversary, and both of us had horrendous colds. Imagine our delight when we not only got Gaiman, but got JoCo thrown in!

    Thank you – come back!!
