Clod Hoppers

Post by Andy » Sun Feb 17, 2013 10:30 pm

Hey I have a new band !

It kinda rose from a jam and got going from that, you just know when the feeling is right.

We have only done 3 rehearsals but we did a short gig this weekend as a support act.

This camera was fixed and the house speakers hid my jvm but here we are :
