Pitch up at sound control, sound-checks are under way, there is even the luxury of a green room, complete with flickering chiller cabinet (empty of course), that looks like something out of a Hitchcock movie or SEVEN. Scanning the room, remnants of previous glitzy bands on tour, champagne buckets (empty of course), dubious discarded t-shirts, but welcoming good for us and great to leave the gear and get on with the sound checks.
Many bands, get bored with sound checks, but i love them, you see a venue evolve over a few hours, you go in, the lights are up, the sound crew are waiting, the light tech, is smiling, its a great rig and desk, and the crew are great, which is always a start. The venue manager and the team look after us and its looking like this will be a great night. So all the bands are set, doors open in five minutes
