Spent a very enjoyable evening in a small pub in Milton Keynes last Saturday where Waysted played a blinding gig. Photos of the event can be found at the official waysted site http://www.waysted.co.uk. It was kinda rock n roll in your living room, with a special mention for Chris George on guitar... it can't be easy working next to Fin and Pete on such a small stage!
In related news Waysted will also be playing at the 2005 Rock and Blues festival at Pentrich, Derbyshire, UK, 28th-31st July. Their set will be on the Friday night, and headlining on the Saturday night will be UFO! Rock and Blues 2001 was the event where UFO were special guests of Uli Jon Roth and was the first gig since 'that Manchester gig' (<A HREF="http://ufo.dave-wood.org/donington/rockandblues.html" TARGET="main">see here for details</A>).
