Behind The Veil: ‘A Fate Worse Than Live’ Tour Diary – Day VI

…and there we were – the morning of the final date of the tour. We packed our bags, took one last look at Edinburgh and hopped on the wrong train. Thankfully it still brought us to Glasgow but we had to pay twice (having pre-booked all our trains before the tour). No big deal I suppose, we had managed to get this far without completely running out of money so I would consider that a victory in itself! We had the very vaguest of ideas of where we were going to be staying tonight – a friend of a friend … Continue reading

Behind The Veil: ‘A Fate Worse Than Live’ Tour Diary – Day V

Beep beep beep…9.30…yesssss……………..the first lie in of the tour. Tuesday was a lazy day for three quarters of Cadaver Club. We had no show tonight, instead it was Draggle’s alter-ego, Matty James’ turn to take the stage.

I was looking forward to hearing what they came up with. We all eventually got up and out. We went prowling for a while to … Continue reading

Behind The Veil: ‘A Fate Worse Than Live’ Tour Diary – Day IV

7.30…beep…get up…shower…in the dark. Ironic really, we’re a funeral band and we didn’t have a candle between us! Really must get that light fixed. Monday morning, the middle of the working week for us. We got to the train station and began the beautiful trek to Edinburgh. The wear and tear was starting to show by now and we were good for nothing on the train, just sat half asleep admiring the scenery, glad of the warm carriage. I’d never been to Edinburgh before but was looking forward to it and it was so much more than I’d hoped. All … Continue reading

‘A Fate Worse Than Life’ review by Uber Rock

Maybe a little bit late on this one as a Halloween review would have been spooktacular but, hey, we don’t roll like that, we’re way cooler and everyday is up for a good spooking round here. It might not come as a great surprise but ‘I’m Making A Monster, Baby’ has more than a doff of the corpseman’s top hat to the Daddies of them all The Misfits and I have not one ounce of a problem with that because this is done very well and from the production to the packaging these ghouls have got the chops. ‘Do You … Continue reading
