I confess, like everyone else I was nervous about this gig.  An all new band and a mere four days of rehearsals.  And a whole new EP to promote which had been released the same day!

When I arrived at the venue the band were suitably quiet.  This quietness was destroyed the second the band took to the stage though - apparently they were the loudest band ever to play at the rehearsals studios and after tonight's' show I can fully believe it.  The familiar introductory song of 'Breakdown' (untopable as an opener IMO) sounded like it always did but with extra 'wallop!'.  That's the only word I have for it!  Quite simply - it rocked.

'Kickin' Up Dust' followed and, as with previous tours, Toby let the 90-strong crowd crammed into Henry's Cellar sing the end section which they did merrily; followed by the live debut of EP track #1 - 'Motivated'.

The EP is called 'Guitar, Bass and Drums'.  Which pretty much accurately sums up what we got - all turned up to 11!  With vocals of course.

In fact, the whole set rocked!  I was slightly surprised at the absence of 'Don't Pray For Me' whilst simultaneously pleasantly surprised at the lack of Angels songs.  Although 'Young Gods' always goes down an absolute storm.
