It Bites

by on Feb.13, 2010, under Music Stuff

I went to see Cumbrian prog rock legends It Bites last night. It was a ‘special’ gig at Carlisle Art college , being filmed by a small army of camera men for a forthcoming live DVD release.

Daisychain Videos

by on Nov.01, 2009, under Daisychain Connection

I’ve added a handful of Daisychain Connection videos to the site. Long before the days of YouTube bands had to actually get on the telly to be noticed. We reached the dizzy heights of now long gone Border News and Look Around (i.e. Border crack ‘n deek aboot). There’s also some footage from our favourite haunt & practise place the now legendary, fantastic , Front Page club in Carlisle.
