But due to a whole raft of commitments/excuses I'm missing it all. Instead on Friday I'm off the North Yorks Moors for my only gig of the week: British Sea Power playing Tan Hill Inn, England's highest pub. Can't wait. Just hope the weather stays mild as camping there after the gig. Well at £2 per person per night it's good value. Even for November.
