Lovely to be back in Waterbeach again. We've played here a few times before at the Beach Sessions at the Sun Inn, everyone involved with putting on music in this town always seem to be incredibly nice and there's always a decent audience. This gig was no exception, the festival took place in the now defunct barracks where Dave and I did a little acoustic set and then spent the rest of the day enjoying the beer and the other bands.
Back at Retro Computer Museum in Leicester to help celebrate their tenth anniversary with an acoustic set. It was lovely to be asked along by Andy Spencer and we had a great day doing all our favourite things (which mainly include beer, video games catching up with other retro geeks). Was slightly too hot for shirts and ties on this occasion.
Congratulations once again to RCM and thanks to Max Hall for the photo.

First time we've played a full band gig at a Revial expo, once did a solo acoustic set a few years ago at one of the Winter Warmers. Really enjoyed the gig and the weekend, met lots of cool people including Iain Lee, who I haven't actually seen since we filmed the British IBM music video with him back in 2012. Played a whole bunch of games, picked up a PS2 controller and some back issues of Retro Gamer for a few quid, had a few beers and ate a couple of burgers. Would actually go out on a limb and say this was my favourite Revival to date, it was massive!
We also, played our new song, that's not out yet, 'Where is Matthew Smith?'.
Thanks to Ian Guebert from GreatBitBlog for taking this picture with his shiny, new camera.
