Laid At The Mill House

14 June, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday 14th June 2009 at The Mill House, Birtley. Rearranged the set and did the first half acoustic, second half full electric. Made a nice change for a Sunday night (the only Sunday night we still do) at a venue which has moved from a full-on party ambience in years gone by to a more sedate affair as of the last year or so. Quite enjoyed sitting on a chair for most of the first set, Tom and Chris included, and first outing of Back Door Man by The Doors following an audience request. The acoustic approach certainly makes you focus but sounded sweet as a nut. Dancing Days and Crackerman done acoustically filled my head with thoughts of Stone Temple Pilots doing unplugged sessions, thanks to Tom’s spot-on interpretations. A different, but good gig with a laid back element that we certainly enjoyed! … Lenny
