"It was good. It was hot. We had a good gig," begins
lead vocalist and guitar player Caroline Finch. "We played
at 2:30 in the afternoon, which made a change from last year
when we played at 12:30. So it was less getting out of bed."
With talk recently of some artistes staying in hotels before
their gigs did the band have a tent and kip out in the fields
or did they stay in a hotel?
"It was a mixture," states Caroline.
"I had a tent, but I never made it to the tent,"
explains the band's bassist Emma.
"I stayed in a hotel but I never made it to the hotel,"
Recently the band has supported the Fun Lovin Criminals and
Rollins band. Somewhat different from their very first gig.
"It was at the Dublin Castle in Camden," begins
Paul Jones the quartet's other guitarist. "We were the
fourth band on and we had about as much stage room as the
size of this table. It was terrifying but it was good fun."
The band has scraped through a variety of individual problems
on stage as comes with the territory of a learning curve.
Paul is alarmingly going into detail but informing us all
with a huge grin on his face he can see the lighter side of
it all. "The valves on my amp blew up or something. I
was on half power at quarter power. It was like all the volume
had gone and the microphone wasn't working on my amp as well."
Emma adds to the mood. "At Harlem we thought someone
was shouting, 'You're bollocks'. It turned out they were saying,
'You're the bollocks'," she explains laughing.
