Six Days in France

The Spasm Band just spent six days in France touring and recording our first music video. The tour started in Paris with a showcase at Fnac (record shop), and then a gig at the legendary New Morning. The show was sold-out which was a real bench-mark for us and such a buzz when we were on stage. The vibe at the show was really extatic verging on hysterical!
The next day we drove to Angouleme to play at La Nef - a great venue, with really excellent food. After that was Nantes to play the Nuits Zebrees show for Radio Nova. We played to another sell-out crowd, and the gig was broadcast live as well.

After Nantes we headed to the coast to play at Run Ar Puns near Brest. On the way we stopped off by the sea for fresh mussels. Run Ar Puns is an awesome venue. It's a converted farm essentially - the stage is the old cow-shed. It had a great spirit, and it was uplifting to see a place like it - constantly promoting leftfield music in the middle of the countryside.

After an epic drive from Brest (and some tasty crepes) we were back in Paris for the filming of our music video for 'Robberman'. I don't want to reveal too much and spoil the surprise when it's ready, but it was loads of fun and very hard work - it will definitely look amazing when it's finished. Here's a photo from filming anyway:
