High And Dry In Holland Posted on Friday 1 May 2009

We’re sitting in our dressing room in Amsterdam, contemplating the possibility of playing our show tonight at London Calling without instruments. Gatwick seems to have swallowed them up somehow on our way from our glasgow show last night, and they are now lying somewhere in its rusty belly…

In the meantime we’re trying to keep our eyes open after hardly any sleep, doing interviews and trying to answer questions like “What is the best English band ever?”. Today seems to be the best lineup of the festival though so there’s plenty of awesome people hanging out here… there’s a constant murmur of acoustic guitars and singing from all the acoustic sessions going on around us… And most importantly, there are coffee machines everywhere.
