I had to look up the word for those three dots, but I'm pretty sure I've at least heard the word before.
Played a show in Leeds on Sunday night, it went really well considering it was our first show in ages. We played with Pivot, an Australian band who live... well, nowhere at the moment, they've been on tour since early this year! They were really friendly guys, they lent us their gear and said they could give us some contacts in London. We're playing with them in Soho tonight, and tomorrow night in Bristol, and they offered to drive our gear there for us! I guess it's not too hard for them to do, they're driving there anyway and have room in their van, but still, it's a pretty cool thing to do.
Actually, on that note, lots of people here have been a lot friendlier and more helpful than I would have thought. Our housemates, who are all friends of friends (at most) have been going out of their way to be awesome, or maybe they're just that awesome to begin with, and don't even have to try. I guess I'm quite down on humanity in general, but when I think about it, most of the people I've met recently have been great.
Anyway, Ross drove to Leeds in our hire van, and we did really well on the way there. We drove to Cambridge the night before and stayed at Andy's, which was nice and cut down our driving time a little bit. On the way home, however, we got lost in every way imaginable - we drove north for a while, then turned around and tried to get back to Leeds, then got lost in Leeds and couldn't find the road out of there! We stopped and asked for directions and got lost again, then stopped again at a pizza place run by the nicest man in Leeds - he closed his shop, got in his car, and drove to the M62 so we could follow him! If it weren't for that man, we'd probably still be there.
