Saw them tonight at Buffalo Bar in Cardiff.
Fun. Lots and lots of fun.
Never danced at a gig so much before.
And they've collaborated with Noddy Holder!
When was their last album?
Saw them at the same place a year ago and they said they were working on a new album. The same new songs they played then were still counted as new yesterday. They're being well slow.
.....and I still think of them as childrens entertainers.....
They were loads of fun.
