If we were a team playing a weird hybrid sport combining football and rugby union, our line-up would include both Darren Anderton and Jonny Wilkinson. As it stands, this time Dan has knackered his collarbone and you can’t really play bass with your arm in a sling.
So we’ve had to pull out of both this week’s gig at the Hop here in Sheffield and the fantastic Going up the Country all-dayer over in Cheshire on 1 June.
The good news is that our good mates The Mini Skips have stepped in to replace us at the latter. And the whole line-up is a thing of wonder. So you absolutely should go, regardless. We probably will, even though we’ll spend the whole day saying: “Gah! Wish we were playing!”
In the meantime, please join us in wishing Dan a quick recovery. Get well soon Dan!
