The tour began yesterday with a successful trip to Manchester despite the universe doing it all it could to stop us from reaching our destination, first with all the snow it could throw at us, making getting the equipment to our tour vehicle very difficult, then ensuring that said vehicle refused to start. We loaded ourselves up like packhorses and jumped on a train, enjoying the scenery on our way.
In other weather news, my very own rain-soaked Sheffield Shanty makes a timely appearance in The Guardian this week, in a list of the best songs about cities.
Next stop on the tour is Nottingham, tonight at Lee Rosy’s. At the time of writing I have no idea how we are getting there, but we’ll get there!
