Bank Holiday fun with Gladstone.

"Spook" Stoker and Dave Evil.
    Good day to you all and I hope you had a good Bank Holiday or if you're not in Britain, a happy Monday!

    Sherlock's Dog was out and about on 7th May and I visited an event in Northampton by The Friends of Northampton Castle. Here I met our friends Gladstone who were about to play outside, but being a Bank holiday it rained a lot so the gig was moved over the road to The Old Black Lion!!

    After setting up and a quick sound check we waited for the signal to begin, which came at 3 o'clock and we launched into "The Madness of Tilly Matthews", we played the same set that we had played the week before at Whitby, each song was applauded by a great audience which included various family members of the band and some good friends who came along to see us.
     The new ballads "Jack Hall" and "William Winter" went down well and the band had a great time, the atmosphere in that 720 year old pub is amazing, the outside wall is starting to crumble so we had to play a bit quieter than usual, we didn't want to bring the house down!

    After the gig we talked with the audience, it was good to see our friend Andy Marlow again, soon we adjourned outside (it had stopped raining for 5 minutes) with the man who had organised this gig and to whom we own a lot of thanks, Mr Ian Johnson. The landlord showed us around parts of the pub which are haunted and are regularly visited by paranormal investigators!

    We also visited the Castle Hill Chapel where we met some Medieval people and posed with their knives for a photo shoot which was great fun, we then ended up in St Peters church before heading back to the Old Black Lion to clear up and return to the time machine and "normal life", thanks again Ian for organising this gig and taking these (and many more) photos, superb!

    Thanks for stopping over Gladstonians, see you again soon.
