The Victoria

Thank you to all who came along to the Victoria in Birmingham last week.  We had a wonderful night and it was good to see faces old and new, and to catch up with many people.  For us the set represented something different to what has happened before,  it felt far more cohesive, louder and organic.  Thank you to Colour for putting us on and Justin the soundman for providing such crystal clear sound.

More details about the night are now on the Colour website.

The Victoria, Birmingham, 7:30pm / Tickets £5 (available from We Got Tickets or on door).
