We decided to play at a party my back garden the night before the Cowley Road carnival. Had a great soundcheck. Took 90 minutes and by the end of it we were ready to rock.
Only problem was that I forgot to OK the open air gig with the neighbours, who quite rightly complained bitterly and we decided to pull the plug. We packed the gear up and played 4 songs with an acoustic guitar and a tambourine instead.
Anyway, it was definitely the best soundcheck we’ve ever done.
The rig was superb – a KV2 system supplied by Rossco PA and Sound Design. Like a loud hifi. Too loud as it transpired.Thanks to Mark Kozuch, for setting up so effortlessly and creating such a great sound. He was very good at packing away too – very quick.
