Hello fellow Syterians and welcome to our latest Blog. Lots of exciting things happening in the Syteria camp at the moment and there’ll be a few announcements coming shortly.
Back in March we played a fabulous festival called YARMAGEDDON which was also named ‘Legends Of Rock’ and in Great Yarmouth of course.
Settled into a very luxurious caravan, feet up and a quick band cuppa before the show
Then it seems every year I have another one of those birthday things 😐 another year older and deeper in debt and all that, but no wiser 😕 This month was all about the new Revolution video, we were writing the intro music, the mad professor middle bit, editing it and preparing for it’s release. A party, viewing night at the end of March for all those who kindly gave up their time to film and star in it 😀
April was a chance to get together with the wonderful Marc McGarraghy from Yellow Mustang Photography to do our first official photo shoot. We had a fun time doing it and came up with a few pictures we all finally agreed on to use 😁 these 3 amongst them.
Next we headed to Newcastle so had to stop off to see the Angel Of The North again, it would have been rude not to 😉
Then onwards to Newcastle, another pit stop at a hotel to do an interview with Mark Taylor for Metal Talk.
A chit chat a drink and onwards to our final destination that night to play Trillians, a great venue and wonderful enthusiastic crowd too so we’ll be going back there again for sure 😀
Then a gig I’ve really been looking forward to as I was doing double duty playing with Girlschool and Syteria on different nights on a ship going from Sweden to Finland and back. Now that was fun, lots of friends on the ship too which made it extra special, 2 days of catching up and watching bands, what could be better? 😀 As soon as we got off the flight we met all the other bands at the airport which led to a coach full of fun, Julia’s just passed her test, so we let her drive…NOT!
The line up was packaged as an all girl extravaganza featuring Girlschool, Rock Goddess, The Amorettes and of course Syteria sneaked in there too even though we have our lovely Pablo on drums😁Of course for the last song in the Girlschool set, ‘Emergency’, everyone piled on for one last mash up 🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘
After the show the Captain invited the bands to come on to the bridge which was quite an experience … a quick photo shoot (Thanks to Helena Larsson from RocknRoll Agency) I then took over the ship, managed to dodge the icebergs as I couldn’t see any life boats😱
We spent the most of May writing songs and rehearsing them, so anyone coming to see us in the near future will be our guinea pigs 😈 so see you all out there at a gig somewhere near you soon.😀
