Some Cities

Modern Roadie

Abit of a blast from the past, but some of you may recall a Doves keyboard roadie kept a wee blog going during the tours in 2005. Anyhow I came across it again today, good to see its still up. Some interesting reading especially if you saw some of the shows that year. Shame the photos are no longer up. Give it a read..

Jez Williams (Doves): “I also remember a writing session before recording in this really knackered old farmhouse near Snowdon where, guess what, we wrote Snowden (was a working title that stuck). The place had no heating or carpets and the bed sheets looked like they hadn’t been changed in 12 months, old pubes all over the place. It was like something out of Withnail And I!!”
