Hotter Than July

Can't believe July is upon us already. We have three gigs this month and each one is likely to be a corker. Please do come to any or all of them.

The first is the Highway Hunters Motorcyle Club meet at the Greyhound in Tibenham. This is a three-day festival and we're headlining, on Saturday 5 July.

The second is rather special - another date at Trowel and Hammer in Norwich on Saturday 12 July. The T&H has become one of our favourite venues and the regulars have always given us a warm welcome. This gig will be a tribute to a lovely lady and fan of the band called Bev, who died recently. But all will be welcome and it promises to be a big night.

Finally, on Saturday 26 July, we're playing at the Rock Bodham festival in Bodham, between High Kelling and Cromer. Here's the poster - this promises to be a great couple of days.

And then we're having a break!

Once more at the Trowel and Hammer

Thanks to the Trowel and Hammer in Norwich for inviting us to fill a cancellation at short notice last night. Last time we were there we were up against Eurovision - and we won.

This time our adversaries were not only the final of Britain's Got Talent, but also a World Cup friendly between England and Honduras - and we scored again.

The pub was full, and, of course, the more people there are, the better we play. Special thanks to the lady who came all the way from Wolverhampton to Norwich for a date - sadly her date didn't work out, but she stayed to watch us play - and she liked it so much that she'll be back with her mates on 12 July. Why not come and join her?

Quite often people come up to us at gigs and say things like "great band! What did you say your name was?"

Well, no longer!

 For this afternoon I took delivery of this heavy duty PVC banner, and here it is, bitchin in mi kitchin...

Don't much like the look of that owl. It looks a bit shifty if you ask me.

Not that Stealer is ever likely to play in mi kitchin in the manner of Motörhead in The Young Ones, but at least when we go out on the road people will know who we are. Including us.
