Hi everyone. Loads of gigs coming up as usual, and for lovers of our unique combination of fantastic beer and great music the news is that the line-up for this year’s Glastonwick at our new venue, Church Farm, Coombes, West Sussex, is complete…. we’re back to being a 3 day festival, with camping, held in a lovely setting! Tickets are now on sale by post, and they will be in the local outlets this Friday. All details of the (mostly new) line up, ticket arrangements etc can be had at http://www.cask-ale.co.uk/beerfestival.html and, for the first time, you can get a taste of 4 of this year’s bands/performers (site will change regularly) at http://www.myspace.com/glastonwick
This year is our 12th, and it should be the best one ever!

As for me, I’m back on the road again soon: London next Sunday, a rare local warm up gig with my band Barnstormer in Shoreham next Thursday, and then a weekend across the Channel with Barnstormer and Contingent, the incendiary punk band I played bass with in Brussels in 1979 just before I started as Attila, now reformed and firing on all cylinders! It was really good fun to meet up with the others after 27 years (!!!) and play the bass again, and I’m hoping to bring them over for a couple of UK gigs in July. Then more gigs with Barnstormer in Germany, plenty more UK solo shows including Strummercamp, a wonderful new event held just outside Manchester – check it out below. The inaugural one was last year and it was ACE.
And the week after Glastonwick I’m very much hoping to be at GlastonBURY, but haven’t had news yet…

Cheers everyone! Attila
