Alright? How’s it going alright? Tidy.
Before i start, here’s the link for our London show, on Monday 25th of January!:http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=365739&interface=
It’s going to be awesome, and its at an amazing venue, so come down and hear the brand new songs that I keep going on and on about. Then tell me if im completely wrong and they are indeed shit, or that I’m a genius and was telling the truth!
Right, now for the main part of this bloggy blog. 2009 was by far (i cant express this enough) the best year for our band. In every way, the gigs we got to play, the bands we got to watch, the people we met, the songs we wrote, the food we ate and the quotes Gary came out with.
I realised last night when thinking what I was going to put in this post just how many incredible bands we’ve had the priveldge of playing with. So to all that made it possible and to those bands, we cant thank you enough, it really does mean the world to have these oppotunities. 2010 will be even better im sure, and I cant wait!
I’ve picked some photos from our travels and journeys across the UK and Europe that I think might help sum up how much fun we’ve had. I’m sure I will forget some bands, but we shared stages with:
InnerPartySystem, In Case of Fire, Lights Action, Thursday, Eagles of Death Metal, Rival Schools, The Get Up Kids, Funeral For a Friend, Save Your Breath, Brotherhood of the Lake, SometimeNever, The Deering, Dinosaur Pile Up, Pulled Apart by Horses, Juliette Lewis and the Licks, This City, The Xcerts, Spy Catcher, The Dykeenies, Last Days of Lorca and many many more amazing people and musicians!
We also played festivals such as Oxegen (which was pretty much one of the best moments of Telegraphs for me so far), T In the Park (i got to watch The Killers from side stage play to 80,000 people, that was pretty sweet), Guilfest, Ben and Jerries, Truck, In the City, Boardmasters, The Great Escape and plenty others.
I’d like to thank the boys that came along to most of these shows to help us out with driving/Tour Managing/merch/teching/taking the piss out of Hattie: Eddy, Jason, Arran, Toby, Northern Dave! It’s sometimes very useful to have people that arent in the band to make sure you dont all fight each other (mainly stopping Hattie kill Gary). Also a special thanks to NickiNickiWildWildWest, for being radical.
Right, that just about terribly sums 2009 up, hopefully this time next year I’ll be doing the same awful blog but with more incredible bands and pictures to show you, I’m a little bit excited for this year.
Heres the pictures, enjoy!
I think thats enough for now! Hope you like them, coming very soon is a Gary Yay special blog, It’s going to blow your minds!
See you soon.
