Played with some great bands, such as Fandangle, The Aggrolites, Scroobius Pip and many others, also we're playing Rock at the Castle this year, apparently lots people turn up, that will probably be a big hightlight
14.Any good gig stories?
many, one gig i remember is when my bass broke, a few mics broke so we only had one working mic, and the sound guy had no idea, i shouted to him mit set 'could you turn up my mic please!' and he replied 'your guess is as good as mine!!', haha, it turned out to be a great gig though!
15. So the moral of this story is....
Keep going at all cost!

We've got plenty, check out the myspace for all the dates, we're supporting Random Hand, The Display Team and Koopa at various points this summer which we're completley stoked about, and we're also playing Rock at the Castle!
