In the early hours of the afternoon on Halloween, I met up with Glasgow's The Twilight Sad, who had played (and blew the sound levels in) The Freebutt on the previous night. Gathering at Kemp Town's best and tiniest pub The Hand in Hand - and remedying ourselves with the hair of the dog (we were in a pub after all), James, Andy and Dok performed two piano-laden acoustic versions of singles from their latest album 'Forget The Night Ahead'. The cosy space of The Hand in Hand happens to be a favourite social hub for the lovely people of Brighton's own FatCat records, which meant a small crowd of the team were fortunate enough to catch this little one-off performance. Enjoy!
Keeping in with the spirit of All Hallow's Eve, it would have been foolish to not take part in its festivities, no? So a pumpkin carving contest was an obvious choice to kick-start the evening following a chilled out afternoon. Being strictly judged on 'precision, originality and fear' , we got into teams and whipped the knives out. Unfortunately Team Twilight (we didn't call ourselves that at the time, I just came up with it and am aware it's ridiculous) was defeated by someone else who was probably in more of a sober state and managed to carve something much more complex and spooky. In fact we probably lost because quite frankly, ours was just too plain frightening. Or shit, one of the two. So I'll let you guys be the judge of the pumpkins!
