Quote from the electric 59 Violets frontman...
We're all very looking forward to playing the Beached festival, says Digsy.
I'm looking forward to meeting some of the regions other bands that we've heard on the
radio, looking forward to seeing some familiar faces in the audience as I think
there's a few of our friends and supporters going to be there.
It will be one of the bigger stages we've played so far so that's very exciting and
will set us up for Leeds the following week.
If we're nervous about anything it's whether the van will break down on the way
there and whether the sun will shine.
He also added that the band were looking forward to sampling some fish and chips!
I fancy some of those hot sugary doughnuts myself, they always go down well.

Music Reviews - Saturday 16th July 05 - Doing Hull a Favour - Silhouette Club By Joe Hakim
So I'm walking down Beverley Road, and as I'm walking this car stops at the lights and a guy hangs it head out of the window and shouts across to me, "Ey, mate...yeah you!"
I try to ignore him, but seeing as I'm the only person on the street, there's no doubt in my mind that he's talking to me. Shit... "I think yer've dropped summat, mate," he yells.
