Journey to Leamington Spa 11/2/2012

We left Glasgow early and used St Mary Wreay in Cumbria as a convenient stopping off point. This church was refurbished by Sarah Losh in the 1840s and 50s, who used it as a memorial to her sister and an expression of her creative passions. It is an unusual and moving place to visit.

In the graveyard were the remains of two completely eviscerated animals. There was a wooden unicorn on the other side of the road.

We also stopped at a truckstop somewhere between Cumbria and the Midlands.

The venue we played at in Leamington Spa was the room under the Assembly Rooms. This is usually used as the after-party space for the big bands that play the Assembly, but is also hired out as a separate entity for shows. I hope the photos give you some idea of what it was like.

Way Through set up:

Kat and Nick messing with Tammy Wynette’s caravan, possibly under the influence of mead.

Dave joined Peepholes for the last song.

Things got a bit strange after we had some sambuca. This is us fighting with the mummies.

Then we found a dalek in the backroom and tried to bring it on to the dancefloor.

Sadly it wouldn’t fit through the door.

Back in the van. Leamington was awesome - a great crowd with some proper synth nerds. Highly recommended.
