Holy shit... Don't book with these dudes unless you expect to get raped. We were on our first UK tour and we got a "show" from this dude. When we showed up to the "venue" it was just and abandoned factory that had cardboard cutouts of crowd members everywhere. When we asked the guy where all the people were, he kept repeatedly offering us crumpets and pointing you his crotch when doing so. I'm not sure if he drugged us or what happened, because my whole band woke up several hours later in the bathroom of a small pub with the same dude flickering the lights off and on and rubbing his nipple... He kept asking us over and over again if we were "enjoying the show". Our bassist had chewed through the duct tape wrapped around his wrists and lurched past the guy screaming for help. This must have alerted the authorities. After several english bobbies showed up, the guy became enraged and scissor kicked on of the cops. This shit was crazy. They started beating him, and he put a cigarette out on his nipple. We left England that night, and have never been back. Scary scary shit.
eddie and cheryl are geni'i! ask them for a show and they will give you a night not to be reckoned with. They work hard and play harder and the pre-gig grub at eddies place is awesome!Counter Culture is a shop connected to the venue, and is well worth checking out too! Talk to them...more people should be doing this! DIY at its best!
