On the face of it, this sounds very impressive. Its almost like they were going to put us on first and get us out of the way but then thought, “Hang on, these guys are awesome! Let’s make them top billing” and I’d love to tell you that this is the truth. Sadly, its not quite as exciting as that.
There are three bands, and one has to provide the drum kit, and all three bands use the same kit in order to avoid having to set up a new kit for each act. The band that were previously going to provide the kit then decided they couldn’t for whatever reason, and so we got the call and our drummer Nick said we could use his. The general rule of thumb is that whoever provides the kit, gets to headline the event for simple practicality as much as anything else, meaning that the band who owns the kit may aswell finish last so they can pack it up and take it away.
But to hell with all that! Its our first ever gig, and we’re headlining.
