Posted in Gigs by chrislightyear

How was it for us? This gig was set up to raise money for Cancer Research UK and we were booked as the headline act. It’s one of the few times we’ve shared a stage with hip-hop body poppers and belly dancers, all on the same bill. Extraordinary. Anyhow, unfortunately

Posted in Gigs by chrislightyear

How was it for us? The Rally ’08 was  big success all round – an up-for-it crowd, a fine summer’s evening, top-of-the-range hog roast and a lot of enthusiastic moshing. We played a mix of familiar LYs classics (Miles Away, Banana Republic, Emily, Filmstar etc) and new songs (Good Time

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire – Cambridge – 10/07/08

Posted in Gigs by chrislightyear

How was it for us? Back at the BBC. The Beeb. A great institution and one of our spiritual homes – a place where people behave in a thoroughly British manner, there’s always lots of tea for everyone and they let you nip to the pub for a sneaky half
