No Coochie @ Hoochie tonight.

I had the option of Ryan Quigley at Sage Gateshead or The Collective at Hoochie Coochie. I opted for the latter - wrong call!
No Collective tonight and too late for Sage.
The barman at HC wasn't too sure thought maybe it was because of a bereavement so I couldn't argue but hey - you guys in the band - I do my best to promote the gig couldn't you have let me know? I met a couple of fans coming in as I was going out and they weren't pleased... neither was I!
I had a punt on the "Rapid Transit" Metro - it was on time!
Win some, Lose some.
Lance.
PS: Kate Daniels at Lit & Phil tomorrow night...

Hi Lance, Martyn here, bassist in The Collective.

The Collective has gone on a hiatus for an indeterminate length of time due to other commitments by band members, for example; I'm busy devoting all of my efforts into a full time PGCE currently.
