An email we recieved yesterday evening:

Well done on a wonderful show for the Royal Wedding. I was concerned to see one of the horses without his rider and hope that horse and rider are alright. It was certainly a real test for the horses with all the noise and waving - they all did very well and I hope they had a good reward of something extra special to eat later!  I hope the riders managed to celebrate well too.
All good wishes to you all

P.S. I came to a practice of Trooping the Colour at Horse Guards Parade when I was a child with my mother and ever since have been a big fan you all.

For anyone who isn't aware - I.e. Everyone in the world - Chris (bass player) has created a Horse Guards Twitter @hgpuk.
His entry at 3am last night was:

"Forest Hill, Oxfordshire,1991.
The beginning of the second summer of love. Peace x"

No idea what brought that on.

Our next gig is at Gullivers in Manchester on Friday 6th of May.
We will be unveiling our seventh drummer on that night!
Getting a steady drummer has always been a problem for us but I think we've sorted it. Our sixth drummer, Grant, is the one we're sticking with. He's great but already had this date booked before he joined us so our friend Andy will be steadying the ship on this occasion.
In the past we've had Sheik, Stu, Gideon, a couple of others who's names I can't remember and there have also been others who have never even made it to a practice.

Had a good night on Friday. Paul Smith of Maximo Park did his thing and Chris, our bass player, did his thing.
