New manager, bye bye old manager, Kettering & Download

Resin @ O2 Academy, Birmingham 9th February 2013 064

So we are looking for a new manager / PR person. We are parting ways with our manager Kevin Gaughan after a years service. We’ve enjoyed working with Kev, and would highly recommend his services if you are an emerging Leicester band. But it’s time for us to step up a level, so we begin a new search. If you are interested and think you can help take Resin to the next level, please get in touch. So thanks Kev, and good luck with what ever you do next. But I should add that Kev will still be involved with Resin in and around Leicester.

Last Saturdays gig was in Kettering (somewhere we’ve never gigged before) upstairs at Jaspers Bar. What a big venue! And a ex lap dancing club, sadly the dancer have long gone, but that did mean the people there were going to watch the bands. First up was Stonepit Drive who started their set with a heavy version of Poker Face by Lady GaGa. Dispite this initial waste of my time they put on a solid performance, and anyone wearing a Dan Marino jersey has taste.

Next was Divine Solace who have a keyboard player? Drummer was very impressive as well as the axe skills of the front man. But pointless walking around “I’ve got a wireless guitar” is worthy of vomit. I was more impressed with the array of table snacks provided by Chez (image below). Next we played to the remaining crowd (lots left before we begain, presumably because they could see we didn’t have wireless guitars, and because the other bands had run over by 40 minutes and it was now nearly midnight). We left some Resin love in Kettering, and some copies of Embrace the Fall are now in circulation.

Next here is a little review from our last O2 Academy Birmingham gig.

Lastly well done to our friends Emperor Chung and Mordecai who have both been added to the Download line up for 2013. We have gigged with both these bands over the last 12 months, and highly recommend you go check them out if your heading to Donnington in June.
