New Model Army – Roadmender, Northampton

It’s the New Model Army time of year again, so I headed up to Kettering on Friday for the weekend. Saturday morning we went for a ride up to Market Harborough for a bag of chips and back, a total of 28 miles and one puncture. Saturday night we headed into Northampton to see New Model Army. It was the last night of the UK leg of the tour, and the night before the 25th anniversary of their first gig. As with last year, they were very very good, the only downside was that it was unbearably hot in the venue as they kept the airconditioning turned off for most of the evening.

    I am not sure that makes much difference.
    The world’s definitely spinning faster than it used to.
