Budtones @ Queen's Hall, Hexham. April 12.

Stuart Findon (ten), Fiona Littlewood (vcl/ten), Tim Knowles (gtr), Jim Crinson (bass), Harley Johnson (keys) and George Hitton (dms),
Many many thanks "Buds" for last night's gig. It was wonderful - you were sounding edgy and relaxed at the same time - full of great surprises. 
The drum 4's were outstanding and we really enjoyed hearing Harley for the first time - doing seemingly impossible things with time, and really exploring the cracks between the chords.

This one will keep us grinning for a good long time.
