As we make our way to Haldern we reminisce about our experiences there in the summer. What an amazing time it was too! A great festival with dangerous amounts of alcohol, stories in the papers about Mule’s escape in an ambulance when trying to make a plane. The gigs were stupendous too…we’re nervous. What if it’s not as fun as before…
As we arrive at a very cool little B&B we set ourselves up for a quiet night. Haldern is only a small town. We tell ourselves that there won’t be many there. We enjoy the deer and a pre gig beer.
When we return to the venue Haldern Pop Bar, it’s heaving. People have come from as far as the UK to see us! Wow. We’re excited. So excited that Mule and Dan have a little warm up dance Poppins style after we all neck some more beer.
And it’s onto the stage we go…everyone is singing and swaying. The Flagon is refilled three times, there’s injuries caused –
and people outside! Our new mate Jim also joins us on stage to play snare on Forty Pound Wedding. So sorry that we couldn’t get more in…I hope the Flagon kept you warm….xxx
Afterwards we drink poptails and I think I manage to kiss everyone there. An amazing night and oh yes, I vaguely remember crowd surfing to the bar!
Excellent. Haldern we LOVE you and Hamburg here we come!
