Wakefield to London Coach Trip
In our recent interview with Piskie Sits and Runaround Kids, they both mentioned a gig they played together at The Windmill in Brixton, back in February, as one of their favourites. Which reminded us that our good friend Abi Standish put together a video documenting the trip, which we've put below for your viewing pleasure.
The trip itself was organised by Rhubarb Bomb, in association with Philophobia Music, Louder than Bombs Records and Geek Pie Records; the idea was for each to choose a band to take with them, get em all on a big coach along with all our friends and transport the awesome spirit of the gigs we put on in Wakefield down to the capital. It was a great success and we all had a wonderful time - its difficult for bands from somewhere like Wakefield to head down to London and draw a crowd and can be a really anti-climatic experiance. But by all working together, it paid off. Im sure we'll be heading off somewhere next year too.
Big thanks are due to The Windmill for helping us organise the night and for making us feel welcome, and to Elks, an ace band from London who headlined for us. And also to Liam from By by, without whom the whole thing couldn't have happened. Enjoy the videos!
