We enjoyed playing at the Carling Academy on Thursday – and were only mildly disconcerted by the uniform stickiness of the floor. We'll upload some photos as and when we lay hands on them.

One thing (sticky floors aside) with backstage areas, though: why always copious beer + conspicuous lack of bottle-openers? Normally, a bottle-opener is just the kind of mechanical implement we'd have to hand. But not, alas, on Thursday night. So Rebecca made fine, though unorthodox, use of a convenient loo door instead.

Thanks to all who came to the gig, and to Tunng and Eugene McGuinness, both of whom it was a pleasure to support.
