It was a busy 7 days for the Psychos with three gigs and as you know we are no spring chickens.
First stop was the Pickerel in Stowmarket, one of our favourite places to play.
The tour didn’t get off to a great start – Randy arrived late after another sighting of his long lost sheep, Jennifer – once again the search was fruitless and it seems more and more likely the Lamb Curry may provide the answers. Then Rudy was seen staring blankly at his clockwork tuner, not realising that at some stage, after 27 years of use, it may have needed a battery - finally Floyd was jumping around so much his legs went numb – only Støndan held it together, making full use of his patented asbestos fret board.
The gig itself was as good as usual with an enthusiastic crowd – thanks as always to Jas for all her support over the years.
The tour bus trundled onto the next venue, The Essex Skipper in Frinton – once again there was a really enthusiastic crowd and some amazing dancing – the bar team were fantastic and looked after our every need – thank you. It was nice to see Steve from Backtrackin’ in the audience as well.
The final date was Ye Olde Albion, in Rowhedge. Recently voted pub of the year and it’s easy to see why. There were three other parties in the area that night but it was a decent crowd and one of the best nights we have had for a long time. Wiggy McWigface, Dirk Claymore and the Psycho Chicks, where there too - just like the old times.
Huge thanks to Simon and Dawn for having us and for the kind words and gesture, we really appreciate it – see you next year.
Now to sleep for a week before the Bay Horse, Sudbury on Saturday.
