@merry_hell_band are just fantastic. After a slightly troubling time involving cancelled tours and other things that make you go eep, they were just the tonic I needed, reminding me of all the good things. Thanks guys 😍

Fab time in Italy. Particular highlight was the audience of little children who’d been playing in the street, who settled themselves down for a thorough listen to our soundcheck, and roundly applauded every fragment of noise we made. We were given a (delicious) beer by our hosts directly afterwards, at which point one little boy came running up to Phil, saying in urgent Italian, “excuse me, excuse me, but that drink is only for grown up people!” Busted.
