The day we didn’t catch the train
From : Craig Thomas
The summer of 2005, a friend and I had just turned 18 and the band had just started to get some national traction. We'd phoned Cardiff Barfly to see a list of upcoming gigs and snapped up the last couple of tickets for the band in July. We travelled by train, knowing the last train returned at 10.30pm. The band played a blistering set, in the tiny venue, packed full, possibly the hottest venue ever. Of course we stayed til the end of the gig, and missed the train. No money, pre-smart phones, we took the 10 mile stroll home having had the greatest experience of our formative years, ears ringing, soaking from ours and other people's sweat, singing 'blood' word for word all the way back!
