last 2 weeks have been mad; we didn't have a chance to post any blog, also we were waiting for some pictures to show you ;
All the pictures were made by the magnificient SAM NEUHARDT (also the video director for the '20L07' video and 'i can see you' video)
St Tropez was the weirdest place we've ever played in, i mean at first sight because we arrived in a camping!! Actually one of the biggest in all Europe. But we set up for sound check and then spent few hours on the beach, so it was very cool!
The gig turned out to be very pleasant, lots of young people were there and some of them even knew the lyrics and sung with us. After the show we wandered around the beach and the bungaloos, bought Chichis and met lots of people; we were a bit the stars of the camping for that night haha
the crew was great too, they actually invite a lot of good international bands to play, which is cool.
Our next show was in Angouleme for The Garden Nef Party Festival. We met our friends Joe Gideon and The Shark there on friday the 17th. They couldn't stay long, they had to drive to England for the next day. It was a shame, but they did a great show.
We also met the guys from Franz Ferdinand again and they confirmed their wish to have us on tour with them in November in France. We love their shows, it is very inspiring for us to see them work, so we said yes straight away! They are really great guys and very supportive with our music and forthcoming album.
The Garden festival in Angouleme happens in the hometown of John so this show was very special to us. Lots of friends and family turned up and the festival crew was very proud because they knew John since he was a teenager. We had great time.
