Here’s Ash ‘having a skate’ around midnight – i.e. being towed alongside our touring van on his skateboard on the way back from our first show, at Lizotte’s in Central Coast. He and the other fellas in our tour group, Benny and James, are solid lads. I performed at 6:30am New York time, so onstage I felt quite mental, like I was miming my own songs.
