Off the bench and making an impact – The Q at Sounds of Cotswolds 5

The power of social media played its part in our 5th gig of the summer. Regular readers will know that we hadn’t planned to do 5th gig, with nothing in the diary until September. However when a plea for bands was posted mid week for a festival right in our backyard we had to answer the call!

Regular Readers will also know that The Q are supporters of The Big Yellow Bus Project so it was only right and proper that we volunteered to stand in at The Sound of the Cotswolds 5 -it’s sole purpose to raise funds for this magnificent and worthy cause to help the homeless of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire.

Festivals are fantastically diverse and eclectic affairs – where else could you find punk, mod and drag acts all on the same bill?

The fabulous Rebel Station delivered ‘bucket loads’ of punk, high octane riffage. A kilted bassist and a 9 months pregnant drummer ready to give birth any second! If you are going to Rebellion make sure you catch them!

Closely followed by our good selves, delivering our well honed craft. Clean, efficient, to the point- no meandering or going off at tangents. We really enjoyed the show – thanks very much for having us. ‘New’ song Helicopter Seed is becoming my firm favourite Take me Down sounded great and a second outing in two gigs for #Wedidntmeanit.
