Well, as you all may know earlier on today (20th May 2016) the PUGWASH album ALMOND TEA finally arrived in a battered old white van dispatched from a brand new high-tech pressing plant from somewhere in the former Eastern Block. I feverishly played the record to test it and make sure it was grade A and good enough to unleash on the wider world. It was and I was mighty pleased. For some time now this has been the LP I have really looked forward to as I had pursued the lads for some years now in a valiant effort to publish something by them on vinyl. One day out of the blue, the call came from Thomas and we were given the go-ahead. Well, the months passed and the final product is here. I instantly phoned the boys and as fate would have it there were a mere 50 miles away travelling on the M25 to a gig. Screeching to a halt on the fast lane and turning on a penny the boys travelled about 10 miles in the wrong lane, weaving in and out of the oncoming traffic and only when it was convenient did they change onto the right side of the motorway to get to us here in Kent. Providence ensured it was a safe journey and only 4 hours it took them to travel the 50 miles back to us - it being a Friday afternoon in South East England. Tumbling out of the van, as they now only had 30 minutes to travel the next 150 miles to Somerset for this night's show, we adjourned to our cottage and after much hugging and chatting meeting the family and signing a few sleeves the lads took their Lps and headed off into the sunset. With cake to sustain them on their journey. So if you're in Frome tonight to see the band, remember what they had to go though to entertain you. Lovely lads they are and we hope we will see them again soon.
