Day 1: And so it begins…
The day began in exquisite fashion with The Beach Boys "Wouldn't it be nice" blaring in my right ear. It really is the only way to wake up. In relation to today though, this 60's classic couldn't actually have said it any better as nothing could be nicer or finer or quite frankly crazier than the next few days of sheer mayhem which was none other than the four date Scottish tour with The Law.
The Dundee quartet has decided that it would be in their best interests to invite a 6ft 4 Fifer along for a week worth of dates with Dora. Now to let you understand, this is not some woman whom the boys had discovered frozen from the 1930's and had subsequently then defrosted her for the absolute hell of it. No on the contrary, Dora is the emphatically nicknamed touring van in which we would be occupying for the next few very interesting and probably very smelly days. That is if we ever got going of course…
Upon arrival, I received a phone call from technical assistant and tour manager, Steve O'Neil. The news was very distressing; Dora had come down with a severe case of "Van Flu". After discussing our various options, which included fixing her, renting a new van or cutting holes in the floor and using our "paws" as brakes (commonly knows as the "Fred Flintstone braking method") we decided on the first option. Next stop was Archie's garage.
The few hours that followed were most enjoyable, mainly for the reason that I was able to consume lager after lager whilst spouting banter and assisting with the Daily Star crossword with Stain and Marty. We completed it in what I would assume is record time for a crossword of this difficulty in around 33 minutes. The intelligence vibes were soaring. A few more under our belts and there is every chance we'll be ready for The Weakest Link or possibly even Mastermind. Agreed I'm potentially getting slightly carried away with this theory but still, with achievements like this already in the bag so to speak, the day was beginning to redeem itself.
The turnaround was complete when Dora came charging through The Doghouse gates like Mel Gibson spurring his horse about in Braveheart directly after he's "noised" up the Scots army who were just about to rubber the Battle of Stirling. It was a joyous moment! It would seem that the decision to get Dora fixed was an extremely wise one. Moffats description of the problem, "aye, the brake disc was like a chewed up biscuit" did not sound like the healthiest way to describe an essential automobile part. To be perfectly honest I daresay that had we not rectified the issue, there is a severe probability that we would have had some sort of incident that would have involved a ditch, a lot of soar chins and almost certainly saw Si the bass player stuck upside down somewhere.
Regardless of anything that happened that day, we were now equipped with shiny new brakes, a bus load of maniacs and The Granite City was only a pedal flooring away.
Now due to Dora having to shack up with Archie for most of the morning we were running considerably late for the in store acoustic performance. Not too worry though as a ten-minute professional and quick set-up later, the boys were soon ripping out their much-adored set but in a much more mellow and laid back style. Indeed a highly enjoyable 30 minutes of everyone's lives, both crew and fans alike. As a side note, it is worth noting that very few bands take to an acoustic set with a different outlook to it. In this writers opinion it is all too easy to replace your electric equipment with acoustic gear and then play in the exact same fashion as you would if you were playing your usual gut stomping set. The Law, using variations to the strumming techniques, singing style and of course replacing the guitar solo from Milk and Honey with a whistling solo have brilliantly cast themselves aside from the norm.
