It’s almost time folks. This time tomorrow we will be setting up in the studio just ¬†about to record our new EP. Final preparations are now taking place. Guitars have already been re strung and drums have been tuned. Snacks and supplies to get us through the day such as energy drinks, chocolate bars and pot noodles have been purchased. Last minute practice perfecting those solos and drum fills is currently taking place also.

We’ll we’d better get back to practicing, no more time for blogging today.

What a great way to start the last bank holiday weekend this year. We’re playing at The Victoria in Birmingham for the first time, support by three awesome bands we haven’t played with before. Should be a good one.

Well in case you weren’t aware we had a massive gig on Tuesday. We supported Electric 6. This is the second time in two years we have done.

Last  year was awesome, this year was mega awesome. This time round we had more notice that we were support and managed to sell over 100 tickets so we played to a virtually sold out crowd. The buzz you get from playing to such a great crowd is indescribable. Needless to say two days after the gig and were still buzzing.

All in all it’s been an amazing year having played some great gigs at some great venues. The Shed in Leicester, The Flapper with Mitchel Emms (The Voice 2013), Headlining Emma Scott Presents gig at the Academy 3, and of course supporting Electric 6 at Academy 2.

More of the same next year hopefully.

Don’t worry folks. no one’s leaving the band. But we have got rid of the old website and updated it with a brand spanking new one. You can check it out at onlythegood.co.uk

In other news the gig at The Rainbow has been cancelled. But on the bright side we’ve managed to get slots at Actress & Bishop on 27th July, Baseline in Dudley on 30th August and The Shed in Leicester on September 28th. It’s like a mini tour of the Midlands. Hopefully by then we should have some new material to unveil. Watch this space.

Well it had been two months since the last gig so we thought it was about time we did another one, and what a gig it was. All week the weather had been hot and Saturday was no exception. This made for a really hot and sweaty stage performance, especially as it was our first headline show since Emma Scott’s gig in January, so playing for 50 minutes was the equivalent of a gym workout.

It’s always good to get a headline slot because it gives us chance show off more songs, and we do like to show off a little bit (we are musicians after all). The crowd was really into it last night which always helps with our performance too.

Thanks to everyone who made it out last night, and thanks to all the bands, Primer, Bullitstorm and Driven. Without all you people it would just be us playing to a soundman and a couple of bar staff and that just wouldn’t be much fun, now would it?!

Next gig is on 11th July at The Rainbow in Birmingham, and we’re looking forward to it already. We may even have some new material for you.
