GREAT TIMES IN MARCH 2013

Hi Mod friends and family everywhere.

Thanks to you all we have had a brilliant March.

Firstly the Clacton Scootering weekender from 22 March 2013 - 24 March 2013. We had a blast. As usual the PAST TENSE kept the mod flag flying both nights until closing time. Played with five great bands over two nights CHRIS POPE'S THE CHORDS, THE LOOP, THE THEME, THE MANNIQUINS and THE SHA LA LA'S. Lots of dancing for which we apologise (we do our best) and lots of new friends made. It Snowed but that made it have more of a christmassy feel. The quote of the weekend for the vegatarian order for food - Waiter "HAM, EGG and CHIPS without THE HAM" priceless !

 

Secondly the fantastic MARCH OF THE MODS final show in Brighton on 31st March. What a night. Everyone there for the same cause, to contribute either as a band or audience member to make the event something special. Six great bands all sharing equipment and doing it just for the fun of it. Each band went down a treat with the audience, never diminsihing in numbers, but being there for the cause. As a band we were blown away yet again by the response and this posting by Eddie Modculture (one of the organisers) which appeared on facebook the next morning - "March of the mods Brighton, the best 3 minutes of all the events i went to that month, a few young mods stood calm as you like waiting for the PAST TENSE to play their next tune and they go with "Wolfman" then those young lads start avin it big time, now I fooking love that, because that's what music is all about for me, totally losing it and you've no idea why, respect to those lads and respect to a fantastic band, if you love The SONICS then you will love this tune....class."

At this point we would like to give a shout to the AA recovery van driver and Wayne Lundqvist Ford. After breaking down half way home on Sunday night after the March of the Mods, the cup of Coffee and shelter from the cold from Wayne and the tow home from AA recovery after waiting only 1/2 hour were most welcome.

A few new gigs up for April - see the gig page for details. If anyone would like to put us on at their venue please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

More news to follow shortly. The band will be recording this month for a possible vinyl release in the summer - Watch this space.
