This was our first really big show. Back in 2011 we played Beijing Midi festival for the first time, with no idea how big it would be until we stepped on stage. We’d arrived just in time & left for the airport about 30 minutes after the last song. The sound quality in this video isn’t great (downloaded from Chinese TV website) but the crowd shots & vibe are awesome.

I remember we were all getting a flu of some sort, not helped by the dust storm being kicked up by the crowd. I looked down at my guitar during the show & my fingers were filthy, like I’d been digging trenches.

Fires out.
