Never been to Stoke before. It’s cold today, no wind but just pure cold as I find my fingers freezing up after 5 minutes of scouting out the town. Some pretty cool shops here. At the venue I do some local radio stuff, Rick is photographed and Interviewed for ‘Drummer’ magazine (Our very own Mini-Grohl has come a long way!) and Tim talks to ‘Guitarist’. Lots of typical graffiti in the dressing room, a sure fire sign of a classic club gig. A never to be determined ‘who done it’ mystery surrounds the appearance of Anti-McNutrey slanders on the wall. Fingers are pointed at Charlotte but are claimed un-founded.

Leif as usual humours and impresses the local crew with his super human belching ability. Winnebago Deal (great band who are out on tour with us) go down a storm tonight and things are looking good as the crowd are pumped. Tim has his hand burnt by someone knocking boiling water on him minutes before the show, doh! Un-fazed we take to the stage with the new intro music (Kill Bill Theme) and by the roar of the welcome we know we’re in for a good time. It’s a lot to ask the fans to listen to Meltdown in its entirety but it’s going down great mixed up with old favourites. An hour and a half later and by the time we hit the final stab of BBB it seems like we only started 10 minutes ago. The crowd have been fantastic and arguably the best so far (It’s a close call with Newport). We hang out for a few hours and pose and sign stuff as snow starts falling outside. Winter Wonderland indeed.
