Well September has already gone so I had better explain the events of July and August...
As some of you may have noticed I had booked work for The Freemasons in China during this period.
Why China, you may ask?
Basically because there's cities with 1 Million+ populations everywhere.
There is also a thriving independent/underground music industry there.
You don't have to lug a stage set and backline around with you, all the venues are fully equipped in this regard.
And if you're not well known in your home country, why does it matter anyway where you go?
Anyways.... it was booked for 36 cities over 6 weeks.
Venues, hotels, transport...
It was advertised....
And then it was crushed by a mountain of bureucracy.
Work visas were not forthcoming and that was that.
End of story.
It probably could have been avoided if we had all applied together in one country but being geographically displaced from one another added a further layer of complication.
Apologies to anyone who pre-purchased tickets to see us, I know you would have received a refund from the venue, but still...
Special thanks to Francesca, Luca and Vlad for commitment to the project during it's various stages.
Let's see what 2017 holds in that regard...
